I love this model. I love the riptide (except the head) It really fills my mecha need. The 2 Forgeworld riptides are also cool. One looks awesome but has some weak rules and the other kinda looks silly with that little head and huge backpack. All three of these are put to shame by this monster.
When looking at it the first time I instantly though of the Puppet's War sculpt. I know this is more a dreadnaught size but I think they look a lot like each other.
The Destroid Monster. While the Destroid is a bit more squat I am loving that Macross feel. Any thing to remind me of that show is an instant win.
Natfka over on Faeit had a nice article where someone cornered the designer of this guy. They say that nothing has been written but some interesting ideas floating about.
Overall I am excited about this model. I am worried that it's cost will put it out of reach for me though. (Rumors put it over $350.) I will stick with my two riptides and regular crisis suits. This way when the new codex comes out I don't have to fret over using the new formations or trying a Combined Arms Detachment so I can fit some Forgeworld in.
Until next time.
