You may remember our initial impressions of the Terran Alliance Nidhogg AA Tank in our review of it and the Goliath Walkers in this post.
Well today it was time to put it together, and over all it's a nice kit - but there are some issues...
1) the artwork is much bulkier and looks better. This chassis is actually quite sleek, as is the turret. The art work however is quite bulky and aggressive looking. I hope they fix this in the relaunch in 2014.
2) The detail on the white metal is, as predicted, not very good. It's fine, but not amazing - especially to 2013 standards. This would have been fine with Epic in the 90s, but not with the technology today. Again, maybe with the relaunch we can see the actual artwork (which is pristine and great) actually come to life!
3) The hull is slightly textured - almost like it's been 3D printed. Not sure how it will come up once painted - we will see!
Apart from that, it's very straight forward - there's only 4 pieces after all.
I'd say "buy this tank" and put a link up, but Spartan have taken down all of their Planetfall stuff and not responded to inquiries as to why...
As an aside, I have kept the guns fairly low as the story of the Wirbelwind bringing their guns to bear on infantry and light vehicles during WW2 has always interested me. That's some heavy firepower if needed!
