Another Sneak Peek
You may have seen the Sneak Peek of the 15mm Federation "Rinkhals" MLRS vehicle last month (and if not, go check it out!). Well, we just thought we'd slip in another preview to whet your appetites before the imminent release of these new models.
Here we present to you the 15mm versions of the Anti-Aircraft turret for the Python/Cobra chassis with triple 40mm guns (nicknamed the "Malvoisin" due to the amount of shrapnel that falls to earth when the air-bursting 40mm shells are spit out at a target):
As well as the laser armed type (sometimes called the "Arcatinus"):
The AAA turret (with either gun option) will also fit on the Scorpion wheeled AFV chassis but will require some sanding/shortening of the peg to the correct length.
The whole Python/Cobra and Griffin family of AFVs will be released very shortly. Watch this space!
Sneak Peek time!
If you're reading this you've almost made it through 2016, a truly difficult year for everyone. As a reward for your perseverance I thought you might like to see a sneak peek of something coming in January 2017:
This is the 15mm version of the Rinkhals, essentially an MLRS for Federation 2nd line forces on the Python/Cobra treaded chassis (which will also come in hover!). There will also be the Arbalest, the same rocket unit placed on Scorpion wheeled chassis. As with all of our turrets, it will fit onto any other vehicle that can mount a large turret, even Venturian units! And there might even be a munitions carrier to go with it...
