Citadel Dark Future Sprue Mystery
« on: February 24, 2021, 11:57:13 PM »
I recently got my hands on a few new sprues of Dark Future car armaments (thanks to esteemed LAF member, @The_Beast), and when looking at them I spotted a piece that I recall wondering what it was... 30years ago. Iíve had a few off the spure car armaments over the years, but it wasnít until I received The_Beastís box today that Iíve had new sprues in a long time.

So... does anyone know what the circled piece is?  Attached are front and back photos of the sprue.

Are they badges to go on cars? Badges for what? To note cop vehicles? Some mine dispenser? Some other weapon? Iíve never figured it out.

Part of it is missing on your sprue, almost half of it,  and can find no image of complete bit that's clearly showing both sides

But could it simply be meant to alter, or be alternative weapon mount "hole"/point for some of the different weapons?

or its for mounting weapons slightly differently (underneath car)?

Ha! Wow... there must have been a bad batch at some point. I received several unopened metal mini blisters that these came from... all the same.

I guess it also shows how often anyone used it, as I have seen pictures now on other places of bits for sale (ok old by years in most cases), its the only bit left on the sprue.

So still no wiser regards what its actually meant for, other than "nothing important".

The circle is a turret you put on the top of the car and then stick one of the guns in it... opps sorry I misread this
