Matthew Cross is a writer, artist, and 3D modeler for Catalyst and Ironwind Metals.


Matthew Cross, common going by the handle "Stinger" online, began work on BattleTech related projects with the creation of a Vulture III and Thor II miniature for submission to Ironwind Metals. While the Vulture III was ultimately not used, the Thor II became his first produced miniature. From there, he went on to work with Ironwind on approximately 20 more models as of July 2019.

Matthew has also contributed to providing game stats and writing for the ilClan Recognition Guides, technical articles and art for Shrapnel, along with previous contributions to Technical Readout: 3150, Welcome to Nebula California, and the rulebook for BattleTech: A Game of Armored Combat.

He designed the initial draft for the Mapsheet "Badlands 2" for the Clan Invasion box and had his first short story, The Last Flight of the Black Condor, published in Shrapnel #10.

His first official unit design was the Kamisori from Recognition Guide: ilClan, vol. 27. He had worked on the design in various stages for nearly 6 years before finally being published in 2022.
