From the website:

The Thanatar’s frame, built to accommodate the huge weapon and the power systems and fuel reserves required to supply it, is considerably larger than even the hulking Castellax. Its frame is also heavily reinforced, both to withstand the stresses of firing its principal weapon and protect it from incoming attacks. This factor, alongside the use of an atomantic shielding array, make Thanatars notoriously durable. Such is their resilience that Thanatars are beyond the ability of most small arms, no matter how advanced, to harm.

The Thanatar Seige-automata is a complete multi-part resin kit, designed by Will Hayes. This model is available to pre-order now and will be despatched from Monday 30th June.

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    I do like the offset head, and those long ammo feeds.

    The proportions of the gun look a little too short and fat to me though.

    I feel it would look a lot better with more barrel length over the front of the carapace, for more of a direct-fire kind of weapon (angled lower too), supported by recoil dampening piston-style struts sprouting from the front of the shoulder mount. Easy enough to convert all of that though.

    I had a similar though, but seems okay for a mortar to me.

    Yeah absolutely – the sculpt of the weapon makes sense based on what it’s supposed to represent; I just don’t like its aesthetics is all.
