Macross / Robotech Destroid Tomahawk Preproduction Model

I was lucky enough to get a bunch of preproduction models for a Macross / Robotech miniatures game. And they're lovely. The client is still attempting to secure licensing and wants to set their game around the first Zentraedi conflict - so if you are, or you know someone at either Harmony Gold (Robotech) or Studio Nue (Macross) please drop us an email so we can get contact made with the manufacturer.

I've built a fair few types of Tomahawk, and this is one of the nicer ones. For a gaming piece it's ideal - enough detail to be fun to paint (and to look the part) but not too much to clutter the piece and make it difficult to paint. This one went from bare resin to finished inside of 5 hours (including cleaning and drying the resin). Pretty good for a model of which there are only likely to be half a dozen in a force.

As ever, you can click the images for a larger view.

It came out great, I'm very pleased with the painting.

I tossed the pics up on the facebook page along with links to your site.

Can't wait to see the pods (hopefully they aren't too nightmarish to put together)
