Following my recent post about adding Daemonscapeto the list of figure manufacturers, I am sure you can guess that it didn't take very long for me to send them my first order.
My Ursids (large anthropomorphic bears from KhurasanandStan Johansen) needed a bit of transport to take them to their next mining job, so I ordered one of Daemonscape's big 15mm drop ships called, appropriately, "The Big Rig".
The kit arrived within days. I say kit, but we're talking six big bits of resin that fitted together surprisingly well using SuperGlue and just a very small amount of greenstuff in a couple of the cracks. Very easy to put together. The only complicated thing was adding the gun barrel to the turret, but I used drill-and-pin, and found that both gun barrel and turret were easily robust enough to make this relatively simple as well.
Painting was also a dream. A quick undercoat in black, then a coat of a very yellow ochre, followed by a brown wash and then several layers of dry-brush. Once all that was dry, half an hour's worth of touching up windows and viewing domes, grills and the additional of a flag from the bits box, and she was finished.
Not the most beautiful of vessels, but very practical for planet hopping. Really nice model: highly recommended.
That's a 15mm figure (not an Ursid!) for size comparison
