Spartan Games have released images of the components for each of the Dreadnoughts and Land Ships they are releasing next month for Dystopian Wars.
The Blazing Sun walker has ball jointed legs, yet the feet are static. Should have made the feet ball jointed as well. Just feels like a missed opportunity to me.
Now, GIVE US THE FRENCH OR OTTOMANS SO I CAN START PLAYING!
I guess including that extra level of articulation might have been a step too far for the walker. You could vary things up a little by including some terrain on the model’s base, though.
I would say they’re not ball joined. They’ve got two sets of gears aligned at right angles. The ball joint just being the most secure way to attach it to the main body.
At that point an inset or something would work better to me. Otherwise you’re going to have a ball-and-socket attaching joint for the legs to the body but the legs are always going to be in the same static position.
