NEW 15mm SCALE CIVILIAN CONSTRUCTION AND ENGINEERING MECHA from GZG:
Presented here are the first preview shots of our GZG's new CIVILIAN MECHA scheduled for release at SALUTE on 20th April, and available for mail order very shortly after the show. The examples shown are just a few of many possible variations on the basic bipedal and quadrupedal chassis, various extras and accessory packs will be available with different tools and fittings to customize your machines.
The models are ALL-METAL multipart kits, which are surprisingly quick and easy to assemble using a good superglue and some spray activator.They are designed for maximum variability of pose and interchangeability of tools and fittings. All models designed and sculpted (traditionally, not 3D-printed) by "MMG" (Mad Mecha Guy), who also made the "Charger" Military Mecha that we launched at Salute last year.
ALL AVAILABLE AT SALUTE 2013 (ExCel, London) on SATURDAY 20th April. Watch our website (www.gzg.com) for info on these and many more new items for the show!

Man, I love that quad mech.ReplyDelete
They are pretty cool!ReplyDelete
Some really nice things there. I must say I am tempted, but I can wait, post salute.ReplyDelete
Those are fantastic - especially the quads.ReplyDelete
My only complaint is the "Aliens" arms on the Hercules, but I'm sure they will be popular. :)
Reach Stacker arms would be really cool to see in the future, since shipping containers are popular as terrain and objectives.
Jon is having trouble commenting to the site so asked me to pass this on to you...
"Chris, the "jaws" of the "powerloader" arms are separate from the bar they slide on, so you can assemble them open, closed or halfway - or for a pallet/container loader, just use the bottom jaw without the top one!
Perfect. Nicely done, Jon and Joseph. :)Delete
The Powerquad CLEM actually resembles a real design concept for safer, more versatile construction machinery I saw a while back. So, obviously some thought put into believability :)ReplyDelete
The more I look at the quad-track version, the more I want one without the construction equipment. It would be great for vac-suit/moon exploration figures.Delete
The whole system here has a lot of potential for expansion.Delete
I can see a fire fighting, mining, even a harvester in that quad.
Excellent designs. Simply excellent. I'm very jealous.ReplyDelete
That quad mech looks awesome :).ReplyDelete
Typical- just when you thought it was safe to put your wallet away.......ReplyDelete
These are the most exciting things GZG has done in ages. Excellent gaming potential here.ReplyDelete
Wow, these are very nice. They have a lot of potential.ReplyDelete
The quad is no doubt the best looking.
Labors for my Anime World. Must buy now!ReplyDelete
Jon was kind of enough to spill that there is more of this sort of thing coming in the future.ReplyDelete
They remind me a lot of Wizkids MechWarrior Dark Age mechs, which were converted from industrial mechs.ReplyDelete
Love these. About as big as I like a mech for 15mm too. Bigger ones don't fit my teeny table.ReplyDelete
I got hobby wood when I spotted these, definitely getting some of them.ReplyDelete
Looking very nice. Don't forget you can pick up Gruntz from GZG on the day :)ReplyDelete
Well, looks like my Red Faction themed army will actually be completed...ReplyDelete
With the removal of the dozer arms and blade also the crane I can picture the last tracked variant as a multi axled Luna rover type vehicle, it would need the multi axles to traverse craters and very rough terrainReplyDelete
Hummna Hummna oy! I wished I lived in Britan.ReplyDelete
