Battledroid Catapult....

Post by AVA MANGO TWO »

Whaaa i hear you say... i thought the title might get some attention, :lol: well after finally securing another old GW Slowcombe Warbot to join all the other over sized Battledroid miniatures in my collection after selling my original one to Nogocat many years ago which i have always regretted, now i have this one that i'm planning to use as a custom primitive Catapult. I don't have HMP installed on this PC but i vaguely remember coming up with a weapons load out that might work being, 2x LRM 10's or 15's, 1x ERLL,1x MPL.
As for the miniature you can see its a reasonably well detailed lump of lead which is quite a bit bigger that the 08 Gen-Con Catapult. it was produced by GW in 1987 and had a very limited shelf life due to FASA asking them to stop production or get done for copyright infringement, anyway it has all been pinned together and cleaned up and now just waiting to get a lick of paint by one of the pro painters as it is a bit of a rarity, :D Merry Christmas y'all.

How does it scale with current models?

In a word HUGE, its totally out of scale with standard mech miniatures but it's a great scale for use with the older larger Battledroid miniatures. :)

It's a beautiful mini.
I'm loving the detail.
Can hardly wait to see it with a complete paintjob.
