For the life of me, I cannot find much to improve on the AT-43 vehicle as far as repaints, so minor modifications are in order I suppose.

Here is my first attempt at modifying AT-43 models. Its just a simple freehand Cyrillic lettering "Kозни" (transliterated "Kozni" meaning "Machination") to designate Sgt. Tymofiyeva's personal Nakovalny strider, so that it is known where the Sgt's strider is amongst the unit of 4 nakovalnys.

I tried to make it look like she quickly and sloppily painted it herself, with a little bit of paint dripping down the letters.

Its a simple and quite mundane thing, but I will take any opportunity I can to promote this great game. http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y114/nyarlathotep667/Emoticons/icon_headbang.gif

I think I will next try to add some bits here and there to represent her "disruption" and "interference" abilities on the battlefield. Not sure how exactly, but I would like to make this model stand out more than just simple free hand Cyrillic.

(for those of you who dont play AT-43 *shame on you*, the Disruption and Interference abilities basically partially disable the enemies leadership and allow you to see a minor part of the enemies strategy)

Perhaps some Propaganda loudspeakers...or something. *shrug*

Any ideas?

Looks pretty cool.

Woot for foreign languages.

Those mecha are sweet! I love the heavily industrial Russian look on mechs, Reminds me of the bipedals in Steel Angel Karumi.

What game is this? How big are they?

Question on the kits themselves: do they come with variable weapons? From what I can tell I can't tell at all. All the online stores have pics of different weapons than what people have kitted out.

I'm actually interested in this game, but without much other support and the bankruptcy of Rackham, I'm not too sure on starting it up.

These models are for a game called "AT-43" made by Rackham. The game play puts 40K to utter and undeniable shame. No more "UGOIGO" crappola.

Here is a size comparison pic:

It depends on what kits your talking about. Some kits do come with variable weapons as "previews" of kits to come for those who started collecting this game from the get go. now that the majority of three factions are released, they are now getting much better at how the models are packaged. In other words, no blind buys.

As far as bankruptcy is concerned, Rackaham has stated that bankruptcy will not occur. So no need to worry about a game that may go the way of the dodo.

The striders are fantastic models; really bulky and solid-looking, and the touches you've added help give them that personalised pseudo-soviet (pseuviet?) look.

With the Nakovalny and Sierp striders, I think painting the clear plastic headlights really adds to the overall look, and takes away from that 'toy' feel the production models can have.

I'd also like to put my thumbs up for a great game – it's simple but subtle, and there's a great range of actual tactical (and indeed strategic) decisions that need to be made.

For anyone who's a bit 'meh' about the prepainted aspect, the paints Rackham use for these models serve as a perfect primer.
Here's a UNA field engineer repainted with Citadel colour straight over the top of the original. (Hope you don't mind the slight hi-jack, HF!)
