Kev...are you planning to make some arms to go with it or will I have to make my own?

I might get round to it someday, but they go against the rationale I designed them around. They're for use in hilly terrain, where tracked units don't work so well and having the weapons at the top of the unit help keep them at a low profile when peeking over a ridge.
Hmm, if they're going to shoot from hulldown, they should really either have something like a Longbow sensor mast and an small MLRS/mortar box, a rack of guided missiles or a tethered hovering gun drone, or hydraulic jacks on the weapon pods to raise them up over the terrain.

Not that the model isn't good, I just see walkers as generally more suited for urban terrain, where they can deploy heavy weapons in support of infantry without needing wide pathways to get through like conventional armour does, rather than more open environments.

I'd like it formally minuted that I'm behaving and being very good and not getting drawn into replying to this ...

I expect that's a 'no' then.

So...now that the walkers are in the process of being blistered up...How much are they going to cost?

I realise that there are two varieties (pilot and sealed compartment) so what price will each one be so that I know how many I can pre-order?

The Walkers at Salute were 20-00 each. At the moment, there are two leg pose variants (left leg forward, right leg forward) and they have sealed cockpits.

I think that there was one left after Salute but we'll all have to have a little patience. The dust needs to settle from such a massive event as Salute so they'll be in the shop when they get there :)

...I would have bought a bunch of them but thought it would be greedy so I didn't buy any and let everyone else get in there :)... It wouldn't have felt right stripping the shelves before the show started :(

Yes. I also put a small piece of sprue between the weapon and the shield to stop the shield flopping about.
