Curious Constructs - The Hoplite Tankette

How do you fancy the idea of adding one (or maybe more!) of these to your collection?



This very characterful conversion was built by the very talented AJ, aka Parak, a few years back. I'm thrilled to be able to say I'm now working with him to bring you a complete Hoplite kit as the first of several vehicles and variants from Curious Constructs. You can see AJ's early progress on his blog, and keep track of this and his other hobby projects too, go take a look!

I would love to have one or may be several as a squadron. I have seen his progress and it's looking good. Any idea how long we have to wait till we can buy one?

Would be an awesome addition, possible counts as sentinels

Dave - We're not putting a time scale on this one, progress so far is good, and I'd hope to get it to the casters very quickly once the kit is finished, but its not being rushed.

Courtney - Agreed, Sentinels would be a good choice, in terms of Imperial Guard I can also see it filling the roll of the FW Centuar as an artillery tractor or light transport. Variants are a very strong possibility once the basic kit is done. Of course it could also be used as something completely different for any number of 28mm games.

Reminds me of a Bren Carrier. I like it lots.

Oh cool. I always loved that scratch build on Warseer. Id be up for a few to tow my thudd guns or if big enough to carry 5 man vet squads around.
