I finally have the new Mantic Tunneler from their Kickstarter which ended exactly two years ago.
It is quite a nice looking kit and appears to snap together but there are no instructions. There seem to be some optional parts in the kit, I really can’t remember what I was expecting anyway or what the options are meant to be. I will have to Google some instructions or maybe just some other models finished by other people.This image seems like a good place to start.
Apparently I may actually get this Mantic Kickstarter model soon. The Kickstarter ended a few weeks shy of TWO YEARS ago. This was the only model I wanted in their Warpath range as I though it would make a good tunneler for my Steam Wars Mechanica army.
So with luck it may arrive before the end of September.
I like the way this has turned out, it will look great in the Steampunk Mechanica force crewed by a couple of Automotans.
The colour scheme matches the rest of the army quite nicely.
I had been doing a good job of keeping away from Kickstarters until a friend sent me a link this morning for one ending in a few hours…
This is a West Wind Kickstarter for some great Weird War II Mechs and I can’t resist a good Mech, or three.
I like the West Wind SOTR range and these new models will also be usable in Konflict 47, Steam Wars and some of the freebie stretch goals will be great in games like Rogue Stars.
As if cool Mechs are not enough, I like the look of this German ball tank, the Panzerkampfrad.
I received this Titan Forge Metal Beards bolt thrower as part of a Kickstarter ages ago. It was part of their huge Dwarf army range that included the Ancestral Zeppelins that I painted up for my Prussian Scrunts.
I decided I did not want to use it in a fantasy army so thought a steampunk conversion might be interesting.
I reversed the bow arms and covered up the bolt with a bit of plastic and a targeting scope.
Looking the way it does, I can pretty much make up any profile for it.
A rare event indeed, a Kickstarter that delivers BEFORE the estimated date. These were due in December and arrived a week early. Prodos take note…
These sci-fi steampunky figures are from Lead Adventure Miniatures, one of my favourite figure manufacturers, a small outfit, but some fantastic models with great character and detail.
I wanted these for engineers and crew on the rather large Aircraft Carrier I am (slowly) working on.
