Model Review: Puppetswar Walker Plasmagun & Close Combat Arm

View Comments

Puppetswar has a wide range of weapon options.  Today lets look at the Walker Plasmagun & Close Combat Arm bits.





Ratings:
1 toof -Far below average This product turned out to be a piece of junk. (rare)
2 teef - below average but not terrible. This product was a slight let down. (below average)
3 teef - Good, average, this product meets my expectations (average)
4 teef - superior to most of the products out there in either price, quality, etc this product goes above my expectations. (above average)
5 teef - Extremely high value or quality. This product blows me away. (rare)
Disclaimer:  I play 40k; I've played 40k since the 80's.  When I look at a model I look at it from the perspective of how can I use this in 40k?  That's not to say the model can't be used in alternative ways it’s just my perspective.

Quality:  The quality is on par with previous Puppetswar releases.  They are good, fairly clean and have good detail.  There were a few places where mold lines were visible or I had to shave off some lines to get a smooth finish but nothing that is not out of the ordinary when dealing with resin kits.
3 Teef



Value: Price wise I think they on par with other offerings similar to this kit.  So I think its priced fairly and competitively.  What also nice is the walker arms are designed so that you can easily swap weapons out if you want to magnetize them at the elbow to save you form painting a lot of extra arms.
3 Teef




Look/Feel:  I still really like these arms.  I am not as crazy about these weapons as the auto cannons.  Not for any particular reason. The plasma gun definitely looks good and there is no mistaking it for something else.  Same thing with the close combat arm.  It looks way better than the standard plastic dreadnought close combat arm.
3 Teef


Seems to me these would work equally well for Chaos Space Marines as well.  Especially the likes of Alpha legion, Black Legion or Iron Warriors.

40K: A Simple Case for the Destroyer Lord ?

View Comments


I know... I know !! This guy has no invulnerable save - right ? Well actually no that is wrong. Really... If he has a res orb he basically has a 4++ save whenever he loses his last wound... feeling lucky punk ? Heh! And of course he is not going to ever run like a little girl.

I have been running mine with the following options:

  • Sempiternal Weave
  • Mindshackle Scarabs
  • Res Orb
  • Tachyon Arrow

He is expensive kitted as such but he is also a beast. I run him with an escort of six Wraiths and its working very well indeed. Their speed means I usually get the charge off and can position the Lord where I need him most and avoid those nasty little things like enemy power fists. The Destroyer Lord is very smashy and I love it when he drops Land Raiders with his Tachyon Arrow. The best part is jump infantry is immune to Jaws of the World Wolf.  :  )


Have you had any games yet versus this metal beast ? If so how smashy was he ?
