The Cygnar Colossal has a new plastic kit and it’s a big improvement over the original! Take a look inside the Hurricane/Stormwall kit.
Get ready for some bumpy weather – the forecast is predicting LIGHTNING and some devestating storms on the way – all due to the new Cygnar Colossal kit:
Let’s get this out of the way – it’s all plastic, all the time with the new Hurricane/Stormwall kit and I’m a fan of the change! Not only does this lead to a much lighter model, but it fits together better because it’s all the same material. On top of that, it’s hollow – just think of how a talented hobbyist can take advantage of that. Lighting Effects, folks. Lighting Effects…
The kit also contains the cards you need to play either the Stormwall or Hurricane. Now, this kit is designed to be one or other, but I’m sure there is some hobbyist wizard with magnets that might be able to figure out how to make this model transform from one to the other.
I was pleasantly surprised at how clean everything was as well. The plastic sculpts looked sharp and had plenty of detail. I love all the rivets on the model too – something to break-up those clean, flat surfaces. If you’re a pro with an airbrush you’ll be able to get some amazing results on this model for sure. And if you’re more of a traditional paintbrush type, then this model is going to work great with a zenith priming technique.
Overall, the Stormwall made a pretty big splash when it first hit and this new version in all plastic looks to be another great kit, an update of a classic. It just hit shelves this past week so if you’re looking to add some a unit with some shock-and-awe to your army then go check it out!
Stormwalls and Hurricanes tower over Cygnar’s enemies with the majesty and menace of a looming cloudburst. From the thunder of its guns to the blinding arcs of electricity from its lightning pods, the Stormwall is the mechanikal embodiment of the tempest. The Hurricane is a state-of-the-art weapons platform designed to put down the heaviest enemy targets while offering arcane support for its warcaster through its arc node. These technological marvels pound the battlefield with a hailstorm of cannon shells before smashing survivors with their giant fists.
