Finger and Toe have released a new 28mm sci-fi paper vehicle kit, the Manatee orbital landing boat.

From their announcement:

The Mannfield-Sprig Industries (stock symbol MSI on Primm’s World Mutual Stock Exchange) Orbital Logistics Vehicle family of planetary landing craft fill the invasion force need for logistical support in the third and subsequent waves. OLV-Ls (the last L is for Light) go in with Mantis fire support vehicles and deliver twenty troops per squad box, containerized refuelling stations, heavier logistical support carried in standardized containers, and even S-Cube Squad Support Systems in the open cargo hold.

Manatee cargo pods form the basis for second tier forward operating bases (first tier are the Chariot and Firepod drop pods)–and many post-invasion shanty towns are cobbled together from cast-off Manatee cargo pods. During operations it is extremely common to see a support base of several squad boxes, two or three refuelling stations, and a couple of cargo containers.

Finger and Toe announce the release of the cardstock PDF model of the OLV-L Manatee in four solid Space Force colors: Space Force gray, sky blue, stealth black, and peacekeeper white. The model is about eight inches long, nine wide, and two high. The model comes with cargo pods that will fit the open bay: a standard ISO-style shipping container, a “squad pod” for transporting troops, and a refuelling station. All share similar dimensions: 2″ wide, 4″ long, and 1 1/4″ high (any cargo you have that fits a 2×4 footprint should fit in the hold).

Remember, every Finger and Toe model comes with smoosh assurance: if ya’ll smoosh your Manatee, a new transport waits your summons from hard drive and printer.

Manatee is available from www.rpgnow.com or www.wargamevault.com for $5.00.
