A short while ago, I put in a request with The National Cheese Emporium (thanks javelin98!) for a civilian and armoured version of The Big Bus to use on the forthcoming Iron Mountain map for Ogre. There's a socket sculpted into the ends of the truck halves to insert a flat magnet.

Also requested a quad-tracked cargo truck; with the quad tracks it will look fine fielded as either a wheeled or tracked truck. The bed of the truck is big enough to insert a 6x10mm metal base to carry magnetised infantry. Custom metal bases courtesy of Shogun Miniatures.

Now that I've got these cleaned up (a warm soak and scrub with Simple Green and then with detergent to get the Shapeways waxy stuff off) and primed, they're ready for initial photos.

Shapeways is scheduled for a Cybermonday sale tomorrow should anyone else be interested in these. Shown are the high end printing choices:

The finest to be had at the National Cheese Emporium!

Will Cyclops ever be able to complete the nonstop run from NYC to Denver without any stops? Coming soon to a gaming table near here!
