Primitive Thunderbolt for Battletech XTRO Primitives Vol. III

One of my favorite mechs ever (if you couldn't tell). Poured quite a bit of extra time into getting this one just right.

If only the original Project Phoenix version had kept this heft and bulk.  The THUD is supposed to be a walking brick, and you catch that rather well.

Yeah, I tried to keep it 100% Thunderbolt. Rolled with some simple primitive looking blocked out forms. All while adding my own spin to the old gal.

Thanks for the kind words!!

YEAH BUDDY
Primitive Thud

I actually like this better than both the unseen and the reseen thunderbolts.
Is IWM going to make a mini based off this?

Yes sir, we already funded the Primitive Thunderbolt sculpt through IWM.

Oh good. I wasn't sure if it really was this one getting the primitive funded or it it were another mech or if maybe it was actually the IIC version that was funded.

I know it's almost nine months since this post, but I just wanted to say: The mini is my favorite version of the Thud to date. I think it beats both the reseen and even the original unseen. As soon as I saw the mini version of this I knew I had to have one, and now I do. It is assembled, but yet to be painted. Love this Thud. Love the Wasp. Okay with the Longbow. Hope to see more "Primitive" versions of the Unseens. Especially if they are as great as this.
