Grav Armor screaming through the atmosphere at Mach 3, before dropping down to Nap of the Earth level to go hunting for enemy forces......
Well how can I resist a description like that! So I'm now the proud own of a troop of Top Gun Marketing's Grav Scout Vehicles.
Topgun Marketing 15mm Sci Fi
Type 7 Scout Recon Vehicle
These are so uber cool, they're ice, ice baby!
The models themselves are fairly simple. A resin one-piece hull, metal turret with separate metal cannon and missile launchers. There's something very futuristic BMP-2 about the Grav Scout that appeals to me. The fact that the masters were created by hand and not CAD rapid prototyping does just show in the final model. Nevertheless I take my cap off to Rob for such an advanced design.
These are just so different to everything else I own. They are the embodiment of Classic Traveller: Striker in miniature form and conceptually, I'm blown away. Simply blown away. My prejudiced preconceptions of Grav armour have been freed from being tied to NOE to one of a true multi-dimensional combat environment.

I've just been reading the latest (here) Man-Kzin wars. I was going to get critical mass for my Felid non-Kzin, but I reckon these are "truer to the book". What a shame Niven isn't a military man, how nice to have this war treated like Hammers Slammers.ReplyDelete
Wonder if they can be temped to make an open-back sled version, or would this be an easy conversion?
Plus a big near-lander multi turret job?
