@Firefossil. The new F2-19 in plastic is 45 mm tall which is about 10% bigger than the old pewter version at 41 mm tall.
hum...the scale of F2-19 doesn't looks right.
It is 30% larger than what it used to be.
Any chance to fix it? :(
Bizarrely enough, the Easter Bunny (in the guise of Amazon) left me a squad of Gears. I got a squad of gears delivered on Easter Sunday . . .. I'm still trying to figure that one out.
Happy Easter All, hope the Easter Bunny brought you a lots of chocolates. I was assembling some of the new Northern and Southern test pop plastic models today for future Kickstarter updates. The new head of the plastic Spitting Cobra has a very Bunny Rabit Ears look to it, so I decided to take a photo and upload as a late Easter treat for everyone, Enjoy!
@Pedwidge. Once we have the final good parts sprues we'll take individual photos of the assembled models before they are sent of to be painted for the Army Box covers.
The CEF models look fantastic. Thanks for the pictures of the other Caprice mounts as well. I would love to see individual shots of the test models.
Dat frame doe. Very swish looking. The detail on the flails, even for test pops, appears very clean and well done.
Hex bases have been standard in HG for years because of the firing arcs (hex bases makes it easy to eyeball), but they are NOT necessary. Most folks using rounds paint fire arcs on the base, or use the set of the shoulders as the reference point for fire arcs. I prefer 40mm rounds for even gears, as I find the 25mm hexes too small to protect my paint jobs.
As I understand it the hex bases aren't necessary (though I admit I haven't looked at the rules lately, they may have updated basing rules).
Personally I got a bunch of bases from the Confrontation pre-paint game since they're incredibly cheap and actually nice bases.
Beautiful miniatures! I really can't wait to get my hands on them.
These are looking excellent guys, I can't wait. Hey, random question if anyone cares to answer: the smaller gears I notice are on hex bases. Is that absolutely necessary? I would prefer to put them on round bases because I'm not a fan of the look of hex bases.
