|Ooohh, shiny hover tank with mecha!!!|
Oh dear! I'm in trouble my fellow hobby fans. I'm still 'intrigued by Heavy Gear Blitz' it would seem, which is obviously a pain in the behind because I'm skint. Dream Pod 9 aren't doing anything to help me either it seems. Nope the swines are intent on actually releasing more bloody miniatures I like the look of. It's not on I tell you, it's just not cricket! This time it's the Sampson Hover APC, which I believe is for the NuCoal faction I seem to have taken a distinct shine to... must resist shiny Gears... only have one kidney left!!! So why am I showing you guys something I don't own (it will be mine eventually)? Well for a number of reasons. The pictures are actually really quite large and show the level of surface detail present within their range of miniatures. No question, for a 12mm scale miniature the detail is pretty sodding amazing if you ask me. It has me impressed any way! The other reason I'm showing you guys these snazzy photo's is because it emphasises something I don't think is initially clear about the Heavy Gear Blitz range, when you first look at it. The fact that you get a lot of different options and load outs in each box you buy. So if you're a dab hand with those rare earth magnets.... well enough of me whittering, here's more shiny pics of the shiny hover tank...
|A sampson APC surrounded by ickle troopers. How cute!!!|
|Mmmmmm. Sexy hover tanks FTW. The basic Sampson comes with Light Autocannons|
|I find sexy things always look better from behind. Don't you?|
|Nerdgasm, its back door opens... that sounded far dirtier than I meant it too!|
|Sampson Javelin variant. Good for punching holes in Gears apparently. Doesn't seem very friendly!|
|Sampson Medevac variant... I'll be needing lots and lots of these then!|
|The Sampson Spear variant, because you can never have too many options!|
In conclusion I think we can all agree that tanks are cool, and that things that hover are awesome. Therefore I humbly suggest that hover tanks are awesomely cool! I'd include the Sampson APC in that list of awesomely cool hover tanks. To me the Sampson APC is just another one of the NuCoal miniatures that is teasing and tempting me, the hussy. This game will almost certainly get its claws in me eventually. I'm too much of a mech geek for me not to play it I guess. I just have to find some gullib... *ahem*... I mean willing friends who want to play it with me! I'm sure if I keep nagging people and telling them to look at the shiny miniatures someone will crack eventually. Then my only problem will be raising the funds myself for a faction. Undoubtedly that faction will be NuCoal. If I turned myself into a registered charity, how many of you would donate to the 'Frontline Gamer Miniatures Fund'? Peace out!
