Yeesh, hope they don't ever try to make a 40K version of that, the weight even in resin would break the table! :)

Hello everone. First post here.

That ship looks very cool I love the whole flying fortress appeal its got. Especially with loads of smaller fighters swarming around it.

ooh yeah :) i'm impressed by it in the flesh. I'm just waiting on some clear plastruct rod to mount it! by the looks of things it will need a large clear plastic base under the AI base to stop it from falling over.

Here is the painting planŠ

She's 7 inches from nose to tail, and comes in 8 pieces (fuselage, bomb bay door, 2 guns, 4 tail wings)

I just cleaned and assembled it, not too bad a cast but they put two fat resin channels on the front prongs which i didn't like. I pinned the tail wings as the resin plugs looked a bit flimsy.
I assembled it with the bomb bay slid back, so i will need to fill in the pre-cast base hole. I drilled a new hole just behind the huge bombs, but could have gone a quarter inch back to make it right on the centre of gravity. you pretty much need to mount it on a longer base stem, it takes up too much real estate! I'm still waiting on some 1/8 inch clear plastruct rods to come in, I hope they can take the weight.

And then you plonk the whole thing on a little Hexagonal bit of plastic that will undoubtedly fall over every time you breath heavy!
Am I right?

fattdex, we need to organise a date where we can have a large 2v2 of AI... so that you can use your harbinger! Outpost vs Monash!

ooh yeah :) we played on a 6x8 table last meet when i ran the 250 odd point demo fight, it's so much better for AI.
