So imaginative… and I guess designed to fit in with the new Titans from GM?

Could have been great but instead it's just more IP stretching, derivative stuff.

I wish these companies used their own ideas…

Great idea, I think this could be really good alongside the new GW Adeptus Titanicus titans.

After all GW have said there will be now ground forces just titans, so its a good addition to the genre

Looks to be just their current ranges re-scaled – which they already do in 28mm, 15mm and 6mm! Personally I think as business idea it might be a bit stupid. I'd have waited to see what the hell GW actually do, first to see whether the whole project flies, second to make sure that GWs proclamation of 8mm means what everyone is assuming it to mean, and three to know GWs price points. Frankly there is a big risk of looking all colours of stupid when GWs scaling gets all elastic (and really, really annoying your backers), either that or wind up doing some hurried re-scaling at the back end which completely screws up your project timeline and budget, and also that you can't actually compete with the GWs pricing (massively unlikely I know, but if its 100% plastic and you're working in resin and metal…)

I thought they closed down? Still sticking to my 6mm epic scale. Tho that is a nice looking "not" leman russ tank.
