Wheels, Wheels, Wheels #1

We previewed a number of new wheeled vehicles a few days ago, and I’ve now had a chance to paint some. This first batch of three vehicles form the core of several mercenary units including the Apex Dragoons (in whose colours I’ve painted these), Han Black Banner Brigade, the Hindi Army and more.

The Broadsword is a large 8×8 armoured fighting vehicle, essentially a wheeled tank but with space to carry troops in some versions. The Apex Dragoons use it as a tank destroyer, missile carrier and area-defence vehicle.

The Odyssey and Catapult are two similar vehicles built on the same 6×6 chassis. The Odyssey is a troop-carrying APC while the Catapult is a more general purpose weapon-carrier.

We’re still finalising the turret options for these three vehicles (which is why the Catapult doesn’t have one in the photo – it’s still being moulded !), we may keep it to a relatively small number for Salute and put the full range on the website afterwards.

HS15-2111 – Broadsword Tank Destroyer – £9.00
HS15-2112 – Odyssey 6×6 APC – £7.00
HS15-2113 – Catapult 6×6 AFV – £7.00

Very nice overall, but the wheelbase seems a bit narrow. Could you post a head-on pic, in case it’s just the angle messing with my brain?
