  2. If they are skimmers low hanging weapons become a hazard?

    Weapon pods in place of the "wings" would be really cool.

    1. The wings are the anti grav engines...not a 40k skimmer it rides about 7 feet of the ground, low flier is a better idea/description .....

  3. I really do like it. 15mm needs all the small vehicles it can get! But it does seem a bit like a distant flyer rather than a light ground vehicle. The wings and large engines do imply fast and high-altitude system.

    What about removing the large engine pods (the grav system would probably handle both vertical and horizontal movement) and placing a small modular turret ring top-center? The placement of the fire support rocket pod is great. The anti-tank gun could be mounted in the same general area. And the "standard" variant could receive a simple antipersonnel weapon. This could also open the door to a "scout" version with an advanced comm or sensor suite.

    1. Glad you guys like them. The Hadai vehicles are at the printers already (wish I had seen these comments first) the wings so people will know are the grav engines, the thrusters are for dropping in and accelerating faster than normal. So far we have five vehicles based on this hull as well as an artillery piece based on the same concept designs. Under the nose is a small gun pod, the other weapons are add ons. There is a sensor pod version as well. But I hope everyone likes them when they get them in their hands. The come in at 38.5mm long.
