Praetorian Heavy Artillery - Courtesy of Curious Constructs

 
Greetings.  Fist post again for a while due to my only getting home at weekends.
 
Now that, by and large, I've finished the most recent Kickstarter products from Col Gravis' Curious Constructs it's time for them to have an airing.
 
First of all we have the cannon and flak platforms along with some of the earlier multi-barrel launchers. Disclaimer:  the multi-barrel launchers are made from miscasts that Rob sometimes sells at shows. As such they are not indicative of the retail quality of these products.
 
 
 I've given the KS exclusive Albanus Zinge a pith helmet to act as the Battery Commander.

The cannons.  I wonder if, with computer modelling, it is possible to scale these up and make Earthshaker size platforms?  Still the Reaper Bones KS should scratch any Big Gun itch that I have.

The multi-barrel launchers.  Again, made from miscasts.

The flak cannons.










The Battery musters for a group shot.  These figures are a mixture of the KS resin crew and the previous metal crew made by Curious Constructs.


All in all, the KS was a pleasure to back and resulted in me receiving some fab models that have been fun to work on.

The mat is one of the Mantic Deadzone KS exclusives.  I was lucky enough to pick up a job lot of six, enough for a 6ft x 4ft covering.

  1. Oooh nice. They should secure your back line nicely.

    I've gone for a couple of those KS Earthshakers too.

  3. I do fancy those Flakk and normal cannons. The screws on those legs also look great. very characterful - good to see some alternative bits out and about.
