WHATS THE MODEL?
Boring Machine from ramshackle
£8 (fucking suck it FW)
WHATS THE THINKING THEN?
I think im in love. I am pretty inspired by this model... and to be honest if i wasnt so down at the hobby and busy with other projects right now i could see me themeing a whole IG regiment around these babies...
Slightly cyber-punk yes, but they also would fit in with 40k quite well. the new Elysian list in IA8 might also help with a themed army. it being infantry heavy and all.
as for that actual model, to be honest i can only guess cos i dont have one. but you can see its a decent size, it looks very detailed and an ok scale. It is very cheap tho, so it may be a bit crappy round the edges but all the evidence (i.e. the picture on their website) points to it being a quality model.
There are a lot of things of interest on their website http://shop.ramshacklegames.co.uk/
which no doubt you all know about already as you normally do when i put these links up!
PS: actually... how awesome would it be to do a SM chapter who instead of drop pods use these????
6 GOOD THINGS ABOUT THIS MODEL:
1. it looks amazing and dynamic
2. the example ones are painted up very well, so that gives hope that it takes paint and weathering from us mere mortals
3. its a nice scale and can be used with different systems... i could even see it as a fookin huge one in epic...
4. the improved one in a separate picture looks even better
5. its so cheap...
6. the moulded rubble and detritus looks good and its at a nice angle (see 1 i guess)
6 SHIT THINGS ABOUT THIS MODEL
1. it might be cheap for a reason
2. some of the lines and detail look a tiny bit uneven on the photo
3. if its solid i bet it weighs a ton- ok for those of us with Jaguars but bad for busses
4. you cant use it at a GW store (minor problem)
5. mail order sometimes means it looks good on the net but turns up a horror
6. none. to be honest iv struggled with 5...
LONG STORY SHORT...
im amazed- an inspiring model at a good price. check em out...
