ArtCrime Productions 15mm Sci Fi
TC001-Valkyrie Battle Suit
There are three Valkrie models available - TC001= standard, TC=002= Anti-tank and TC003= Support. The Anti-tank and Support variants can be seen on the ArcPro blog. Nuff said about them here.
The models I received in TC001 had enough parts to create 3 of the basic Valkyrie battle suits plus 3 square plastic slottabases. Each model comprised of a torso with integral head, legs, left and right arms, weapon. In this case the weapon is a drum fed slug or grenade launcher.
The legs which came in the pack were all in a wide-legged standing gait. There's a robust spigot on the hips which attaches the torso and allows it to swivel. I initially felt the torso was too small but once the arms are in place and the model is tooled up, it looks really good. The design feels solid and real-world, whilst the finish is clean and sharp. I found that the Valkyrie will also works alongside with my 20mm, 25mm and to a lesser extent, 28mm Sci Fi miniatures.
On the workbench the Valkyrie gives the impression of being a powerful battle suit or combat mechaniod. There's also a touch of Heinlein in the air - you can imagine the running anti-tank Valkyrie (shown on the blog) being 'Mobile' Trooper 'on the bounce'.
I feel tempted to use these Valkyries within my ASQL2 Mechanoid Army. They will definitely appear as 'army generica' badass combat robots/battle suits to support my Felids et al.
Any chance of a comparison shot of that there mecha against some 28mm figures... as you said he has that generic rightness...
Just to let you know with the high quality metal we are useing you can bend and pose the arms quite extensively. I have seen a few converstions on the basic model that are quite nice. Glad you liked them. We have a few more versions coming next month, Assault and command, as well as "drop packs" for the Valks.
Cant wait to see your post about the base system we have available....
