Being a good sport, Ben agreed to cast some up for us. I'll refer you back to my previous post where I discussed what a reasonable Infantry Support option for the Iggies might be. This is my chosen option.
The castings (yes I bought more than one) are clean, with the only flash being on the back of the weapon options, from whence you'd have to clean it up anyway.
The material appears to be dense enough and despite being a solid lump of resin, the design is so well balanced that it does not tip over backwards, which was the thought that crossed my tiny mind when I first opened the package.
And it's square. Or 'true' for those of you with an engineering bent. It's impressively simple and I find the aesthetic quite pleasing. There are three weapon options, all appropriately scaled to the model.
The stubby howitzer version: looks good on the model, but not what I'm looking for.
The medium sized version. If you wanted to (and I won't put this idea in the heads of Iggy players, that might mean unnecessary expenditure) depict a salamander with a fully armoured superstructure, then adding an autocannon barrel to this option might be a decent option. There, good job I didn't say that out loud.
The biggest option. In providing three options, what you're given is the option to vary the look and therefore, on the tabletop, the purpose, of the vehicle, depending on what you interpret it to be armed with. It's entirely suitable for magnetisation, although the resin would be harder to work than the plastic.
The WYSIWYG option, Now the problem with these short barrelled options, is that the muzzle brake is directly in line with the driver's hatch. So I'm minded to get out the ol' tube and extend the barrel so that the muzzle brake is actually in front of the vehicle.
So I'll mock that up at some point and get it on the Brick of Scrutiny so you can have a look.
