...but some people can be very persuasive as, of course, can the beautifully designed and cast miniatures they produce. Late last year I was presented with the opportunity to paint a new 15mm Dropship that will very shortly be the subject of a Kickstarter project instigated by James 'Jimbo' Burrell of ACP Games who produced the excellent set of Mercs I painted a couple of years ago.
I have now received the castings for the ACP 'Vanir' Dropship and will begin a WIP very shortly. Jimbo has already completed the painting of one of the 'Vanir' and a bloody nice job he's made of it too...
Here's the one received today...it's huge!
It measures about 18x13cm and comes as a kit of parts - 20 resin and 13 metal - (the photo you see above attests to the great fit of the parts as it has just been slotted together without glue or blu-tak - hence the not quite aligned engine nacelles. It also lacks it's undercarriage, sensors and weaponry).
The kit includes a separate lower hull with a very detailed interior complete with seating (seating which even has restraining bars for their occupants!) and a ramp which can be displayed open or closed.
