It's a flying Higgins boat!

I don't play Skitarii, but I like the idea of having one of these and use it for something else.

All hail the skittari higgins lander !! I am hoping it is open topped that would be sublime. Let the tech heretic tremble.

if you cut off the loading ramp bulge the tank version looks a lot better

I'm guessing it's not open topped in the sense that any occupants can fire from it - there's nothing that allows them to shoot over the sides other than the stubbers - just that the toughness and/or armour save will be lower than the other version


IDK we'll see. It has firing slots on the side panels though.

It's not like guard need another amphibious troop transport but the idea of using them for sentinels or the little FW tractors (Dang I for got the name) intrigues me.

It could also nicely become something of a barge of sorts, perfect for Necromunda or other water-based settings.

I can see a lot of conversion opportunity in the model, bit I can't say for sure if it'd end up in my Skitarii or AM forces!

Need to do something about those skirts though, those rounded edges and hovering function have the stench of the xenos about them!

I think Somua part is quite perfect - so I'll just remove the rudder and Disintegrator is fine.

Interesting that its missing the inverted nose that the final model has. Personally I prefer the finished product. It gives me an old school Flash Gordon vibe, especially with the rockets on the prow.

Ooh, thanks for sharing that sketch!

It does have a nice retro / raygun gothic style vibe to it. First impression I got was that it reminded me of that massive Sisters of Silence skimmer, though after checking the actual model, my mental image of it looks nothing like it.

I do hope that the tank turret also comes with an option to build it closed, as opposed to the open-topped variant I've seen so far.

Geez, you are right. You have to paint it in bright yellow and the main turret in red for the beak as a proper rubber duck. Then sit in your bathtub, fill it, grab your "duck", flashlight and umbrella like Ernie did in Sesame street. Ah, great memories.

Man, I don't know what kind of ducks you guys are smoking, but even squinting hard and trying to see it, it's a pretty far stretch.

Like, maybe if the turret were way forward...? Nah. Not seeing it.

Holy crap that's a ton of weapons. If we get even half that will be awesome.

Also we now know the name for the stubby cannon. Energy Howitzer huh? So it's gonna be like a leman Russ eradicator, designed to dig infantry out of cover.
