Since even in the future scientists have more common sense than to allow the "average Joe" to have their own personal jetpacks, the everyday citizen and foreign tourist still needs a way to get around the city. And I can already hear you say "but isn't that what taxis are for?"
Yes. Yes it is.
And here is your taxi of the Spec-Sec future:
It's somewhat stylish, has both ground and air options, and seats about 20 so go ahead and bring your jukebox money.... sorry, got a little lost there! No, it actually seats 4-6, and can be human driven or robot-controled. Also doubles as the dreaded family minivan, and I'm sure some nefarious types might rig it for nefarious purposes, but we will see...
Oh, and it does appear that we will indeed be having a Kickstarter for the Dark Star 15mm line, after the initial 3 releases. This will allow a quicker release of vehicle models as well as figures for the Feddies, Vents, and them evil K-dudes. Rumor even has it that two new factions may be appearing. But you know how rumors are. Sometimes they're even true!
...nope, it's a Scorpion!
Yep, the 15mm version of the FD-24 Scorpion has been sent to be printed, joining some Spec-Sec vehicles in line. It will come with 2 weapons options: long barrel conventional canon and a large caliber autocanon, along with an ammo storage bustle addition. There will be a separate upgrade pack which will have both a rail gun and plasma canon (same as carried by the Puma LODAV GIFV) with a power generator bustle addition (which will replace the ammo stowage that comes with the kit).
Now, word is that I will be receiving a few examples of the Puma, S'orhan and Talin before heading down to MilleniumCon in Austin. I was hoping to get them last week so at least one of each could be painted up but you'll be able to see them "in the raw" at the booth if you drop by. If no changes to the molds are needed they will be put up for pre-order the following week. Rumor also says that the upcoming 15mm stowage packs may also be ready and present, and I sure am hoping so or I will feel like a total boob! The packs will contain tools, bore cleaning rods (disassembled and racked), an assortment of back packs and boxes, camo netting, tarps, fuel and water cans, and maybe even hot food carriers and an ice-chest. I will of course post pix as soon as they are in my hands.
Hope to see y'all in Austin on the 7th-9th!
