    New Warplightning Cannon Model

    ... do you like it?

    I don't really like it. I only though they'd update the rats' look and make it plastic, but now it has all this woody stuff and is mounted on a base

    Apologies to Mr Wayne for me hijacking his thread with this question

    Hey Warlord,

    I agree with you....i dont like the new look either....way to much wood and not a real "cannon" look to me. The old model has its drawbacks to but at least it looks like a cannon .

    Like the Doom-Flayer, the Warp-Grinder and the Plague Catapult though....nice models.

    I reckon they did every kit (especially Ikit Claw) right, but the combo plastic one. The WLC ain't cannony enough, and there isnt enough sludge on the Plagueclaw Catapult. Plus, the Plagueclaw's model looks like the kind of model that will look really out-dated in a few years.

    Extra sludge that difficult to model on, eh?

    The new WLC looks ok. I'll stick with the old one I bought a couple of months ago, but I wouldn't say I dislike the new one.

    Well I suppose not

    It looks OK, I'll give it that. It's just that the design isn't really what you would expect for a cannon. Then again, we are talking about Skaven here

    I do, actually.
    It reminds me of the early spy movies, where you see the main evil character unveiling his plans while his ultimate weapon rises into place. Once it stops, he gives off his evil laugh...
    The model is a bit woody, though, but you need to remember the frame is for both the cannon and the catapult.

    Being a combi set is awesome!

    The only thing I don't like about it is that it is too woody. And true cannons don't come with a base, but again, that's because it is a combi set.

    An evil spy, eh? Interesting...
    It actually is kind of like that.

    It's a vast improvement over the last one in my opinion. The wooden base is different, but it doesn't seem out of place compared to the rest of the army (I think they based it after the screaming bell/plague furnace). The one thing I don't like is using the big rock of warpstone as a counterweight on the catapult. Then again, if it was painted like an ordianry rock it might look better.

    So yeah, they could've done better, but I'll use the model if I get a Skaven army.
    I am heading off to the Peace Corps. It is bery likely I will not be back. Good luck to all of you endeavors.

    I like it, I don't mind the wood at all, the only thing the catapult part does look kinda silly. The fact that its a combi set is great, and the plastic part is great. The only thing I'm wondering about is can you convert it easily back and forth between the two if you were to use magnets?
