Its been a long time coming, it may have got lost in the draft pile. But we are going to catch up at least 😀
Welcome to the last of the reviews for AT, in which I am going to look at the last of the chassis from the initial releases. Its time to have a play around with the Reaver!
This marks the end of the current range of boxes released so far for the game. Woohoo and also boooo.
The box is the usual quality like the rest of the range, I have really enjoyed the artwork being done for AT and I hope they keep going with this as well its all amazing!!
We get a few options in the box to play around with, although no doubling up like the warhound kit unfortunately.
Inside the box we get the again black and white instruction manual. This does separate from the shinier normal GW kits, which is a shame as well they are not as shiny as they could be and smacks a little of cutting the fat in some areas for a specialist game. On the flip-side the transfer sheet is good quality and I am impressed that each titan class got their own sheet.
When we have a look at the spures we get 3 sections, just like his big brother the warlord. The first is the body and legs sections which are going to be the same across all the Reavers. The detail is of course bonkers and GW doing what GW can do with these sorts of plastic kits.
Individual rivets on a foot section you can hardly see once built!!
the next 2 spures are the ones that easily swappable in the future. The armour plates give you some options from blanks to traitors
The weapon spure gives you the various weapons…..obviously. The variations for the fist are a nice touch as is their ability to be left/right handed. I would have liked an additional option for carapace weapon but the kit layout wouldnt have allowed that anyway.
It is a solid kit and goes together pretty easily, the model as a whole is perhaps a little more static than the other titans as a lot more work is needed if you want the movement in the legs. Perhaps a symptom of being the middle child 😉
Finally some scale shots of how he fares between his big/little brothers
A great addition to the AT forces and well worth the price of £30 from our friends over at Leodis Games.
At this stage I have 1 kit of everything and I am pretty happy with that. Is it optimal? certainly not but I think there are still plenty of options open to me with what I have.
Because I have done it for the rest of the Titans, here is my almost completed paint job.
