Gracie makes the final pig in the queue (for now).
I had considered doing something different for the skin, along the lines of the variety in Piglets. After all, I’ve already got big pink models in Old Major and a War Pig. I decided the light colored pink would give a nice contrast to relatively dark improvised armor and bags.
The model ended up less colorful as I sometimes like, but I like it. I especially like how the bottles turned out.
I like the Gremlin operatior, and the hogtied pig is pretty awesome. I wish the catapult part had more detail, though. The wooden frame seems far too neatly constructed. On the plus side, it neatly fits on the 50mm base.
My favorite use of the Pigapult so far has been for a sudden tactical retreat forwards. My front line was invaded by McMourning, and Ophelia was already loaded up on Poison. So I activated the Pigapult and evacuated Ophelia and some friends the heck outta there.
Everybody talks about how awesome the Katanas are for UCM. I figured I ought to jump in. Naturally, I waited until they were same price as the Sabres.
Model wise, there’s not much to say. I’m still happy with my standard UCM scheme.
Combined with an Eagle and some Falcons, I can do some pretty nasty building demo. I played against a list with a six Katana squad at Adepticon. It was even nastier, although one well-placed Orbital Strike Kodiak managed to kill them all. Mutual cover doesn’t hide you from space!
