Rob Reviews: em4's "Mechs"
Posted by BobbieTheDamned –
Right I was thinking that seeing as Gen Biakal has been entertaining us with some reviews I thought I'd have a go too
So welcome to the first 'Rob Reviews'!
Price: £2.50 for 5 mechs
I bought these along with the other em4 bits I'm reviewing after trying to ignore them for a long time. I'm fairly happy with how these guys for the price.
What you get is 4 single body/leg pieces and a single mech with seperate legs as well as a number of seperate arms. These build to be arround 40mm tall so could probably pass as large andriods for 28mm sci-fi and smaller mechs for 15mm and 6mm. Mine came with round bases rather than hex ones, anoyingly these are slotted which isn't much good when the mechs don't have tabs. But hell I'll probably put them on 40mm bases anyway.
The detailing is very crisp (easily as good as GW), and no flash. I'm not a massive fan of the exact style but I'm prepared to work on them a bit to get them looking a little more 'titan' like and a little less 'megatron'.
One thing I do like in this set is the weapons:
In particular the missile pod looks pretty cool to me, the missiles sticking out need work but the pod itself is nice. The 'gun' arms are a bit weird, all barrel and not much for the action or ammo but what is there will come in handy for a lot of conversions. The arms with hands I'm not fond of, especially the spikey shoulders.
I'm quite happy with this purchase. Cheapest mechs I've found by far and with a bit of work I can see them working quite nicely.
Historical Accuracy: n/a - Not historical miniatures.
Value for Money: 10/10 - 5 mechs for £2.50 surely can't be beat.
Sculpting Quality: 9/10 - lots of detail on all surfaces.
Production Quality: 9/10 - plastic quality is a little 'meh' but shouldn't be a problem.
Personal Opinion: 7/10 - they're nice but will need work to be what I want.
