Forgeworld Tauros Venator
There's a little interest around the wargames forums in this new vehicle from Forgeworld so I thought I'd post some pics and links... (sorry about the photo colour - had the camera on the wrong setting!)
The photo above is of the one-piece main hull (casting blocks on the rear) here it is from the front and above, and from the side showing the shallow space of the rear deck ( seated troops would be a little exposed sitting there). Turret from the rear, in its mount and fitted to the hull.
The wheels and axles are here and the driver and gunner here (wouldn't take a great deal of effort to add the missing limbs and use these in other vehicles).
I sold my painted Elysian drop troopers on Ebay so will have to buy a few more to accompany this great new addition. I really like it and on first inspection both the vehicle and crew are cast very well without too many faults or mould lines. I haven't done any comparisons to other 40k vehicles but in real life it would be more a truck than a Jeep.
In progess will follow...
