300 Humpbacks (AFVs, not whales)

Dai asked how they size up next to the Chimera.  Mine wear an IG auto cannon, smoke dischargers and a searchlight because I've got them as counts as salamanders.  I suppose they could stand in for Chimerae.  If you're not playing 'friendly' games I could see someone complaining as they are a different shape and therefore must surely be easier to hide and therefore you are cheating, but I suspect such an opponent may well outright refuse to play someone who isn't using 100% GW.  (what is all this about FW suddenly being 'allowed' ?  They have always been made for the game and accompanied by 40K rules ffs.)
Another shot to compare with a Chimera.  Slimmer, longer, but more or less the same height, Including the (obviously unmanned) turret.
Showing the Green and Green scheme off.  I will eventually put another green on (there is a third green on there, but I think it's the same as the base colour and therefore more or less a shading colour so subtle only polinating insects will be able to see it).


  1. Those are nice. I like Annocenti stuff.
    I use tamiya paints as well.

  2. Thanks lots for the comparison! Those may well be just what I'm looking for.

  3. ... Or not. Shipping to the States is horrible. :(

  4. Get them shipped to a relative and posted as gifts. Cuts out the tax....

    I'd never say that out loud. Makes me feel dirty.

  5. Hrm, Mum's in Norfolk so that might just work.
