Since the GW kit is so expesive Iwill be looking around to try to find options so I don't spend $500 on 10 guns. Right now I have 2 GW kits one I paid full price on the other I got off ebay for half off. These guns came in about $20 a platform after shipping. Not bad seeing that would bring the cost down to $200 for 10.
Everyone raves about the lobba option for the gun so that is the option I got with these. The kit itself was well detailed and well cast. The only problem I had was the arms on the cannon had misshaped holes in them I am sure they were supposed to be there but in a more uniform shape. I think I am going to green stuff them shut.
They went together very well. I didn't like the little platform so I added the controls on the ground. The platform was to small for even a grot to stand on.
I plan on using some magnets on the gun base so I can have several different options. I just need to design or purchase some extra guns to stand in for the smasha, tractor, or mega kannon.
Here is a shot of the Lobba. There is some great detail here. After looking at it maybe no green stuff is needed.
As far as the actual footprint, it is a bit shorter than the official model. It is closer to the width and length. It is a bit smaller though.
I think that would solve all my sizing issues as well. I will have to see. Over all I am glad I got these. Once they come out on the Curious Construct Site I might just finish out the set of 5. Until then I will keep on the lookout for other options. Until then...
