"You mean where we all sculpt and paint and stuff?"
"No, that was the Renaissance."
- Buffy the Vampire Slayer
I normally don't bother to just post stuff I bought these days but I have to share this one. 15mm.co.uk recently released miniatures of Leonardo da Vinci and his famous concept "tank", one of many inventions of his that was so far ahead of its time that it was, as far as we know, never built. Leonardo was a military engineer for the Duke of Milan, producing other more practical deadly mechanisms and fortifications, as well as overseeing the Duke and Duchess' opulent wedding.
They're really nice models: well-sculpted crisp casts with lots of detail. The tank is two resin halves with sixteen (!) metal cannon barrels, and you get two versions of Leo: mounted, and unmounted holding blueprints and a tiny model of the tank! Too cool. I can't wait to paint these up.
|It's pretty big too. With other figures for scale.|
