MaxMini.eu Releases Scrap Tank:
From their announcement:
MaxMini.eu have just added Scrap Tank model to their webstore.
Honestly its a nice model … but for something that there aren’t tournament rules for … you just going to be using this in home fun games … Ramshackle games makes similar vehicles for about 1/4 the price (if not less). One can also just make said vehicle easily on their own with plasticard, a small diameter hole punch (available at your local craft store), etc. That is an expensive option time wise thought. Still for a model that can’t be used in tournament play, something that your just going to be using for fun scenario games … I’d just kitbash up one of Ramshackle’s models and/or there are other turrets out there on the market for this and tracked vehicles it would be pretty easy to approximate this very well for a far, far lower cost. Just my two cents …
You can make that out of plasticard??? I would be very impressed.
Model looks good as most of the maxmini usually does!
Lord of Excess isnt too far off. The drive train is the hardest part to produce (assuming you steal weapons from your bitz bin)
I agree it is nice, apart from the price… Your are also spot on about Ramshackle.
Very nice model. Good job.
Some players do more than play in tournament’s, some play to have fun. Crazy idea they might even just want to paint a great looking model.
Exactly. I dont actually play in tournaments, pretty much only play for fun!
The problem is not the lack of rules – in 40k you could play it as an enclosed Looted Tank or Battletank with a big gun (variant depending on tank type) – or make yourself rules from Forgeworld “Raid on Kastorel-Novem” (if you are so deep into Orks to buy this tank, you probably have that, too). The problem here is that many tournaments do not allow for non-GW tanks – but Orkplayers will probably have sufficient rule-conform tanks to field at tournaments, and use whatever they like in friendly games.
Apart from that, many CAN certainy do this cheaper themself – but do we have the time for it? I already have half a dozen indivudalized tanks – some severly kit-bashed so that nobody finds out what is beyond all these plates & glyphs, but still this would make a nice addition.
The two questions that arrive is: it it worth it, and can we affort it. Personally I will answer the first one with a definite yes.
that is a real character on its own
if shoots and moves…….watch yer ass
