A New Ride

So I came home from work Thursday evening to find that my APC from Pig Iron Miniatures had arrived.  I think it's a nice looking kit though a bit longer than I thought it would be.  It's the same width and height roughly as  rhino but about a couple or so inches longer.  For a squad of Imperial Guard stand ins, ie my Inquisitor's naval shore party, it should work more than fine.

There are only a few bits to glue together with the majority of the kit being one piece.  This is a resin bit but it's hollowed out on the underside so it's not too hefty of  a model.  Then there is a resin turret and eight metal bits.  One is the back of the vehicle, two are options for the gun on the turret, a bit that covers the mold point on the turret, a hatch cover, and then three accessory bits.

All in all, I'm pleased with the kit and wouldn't mind a couple more perhaps.  It definitely has that landing craft feel that I was looking for for the naval infantry.  I didn't find any flaws or bubbles or any other issues at all, so I'm impressed with the quality of the kit.

So that's all for now and I'll see about getting some more of the Lions posted this weekend while I'm off work.


  1. Never been much of a fan of the APC version that you have here, the MBT though looks really cool! Though, it really doesn't have an obvious 40k equivalent...


  2. It's got a decent amount of heft to it due to size, not something you'd want to get hit with for sure. I've added a few more accessories to it and will bring it along Saturday evening.
