Interesting design.  Like the others, I particularly dig the assault gun/tank hunter option.  My first thought was KV-2 as well...

I think a nice idea (as an option?) would be an ammo crane like the Sturmtiger, etc.  So that if you use the heavy assault gun barrel (the short, fat one), you can add a crane to the decking somewhere.



I don't play 40K and honestly couldn't see myself buying one of these for any real reason, but it's definitely got some charm to it.

Well, I got double the funding goal on day one, and cracked both the "stretch goals" within a few days, so I have been workingon the extra pieces. I have done the sponsons, so all the tanks will ship with 2 of them. See how they are designed to cover the door on the tracks? Here is a look at them:

I have some more images ot show of the bits Im doing. Some are for the stretch goals and some are based on feedback from backers and on forums.

Backers will be able to choose either the spaced armour or two sponsons on each model.

I also lowered the turret a bit with a new fitting.

There is a ballistic shield for the gunner on the Pug now too.

The images also show rulers for size reference.

The skirted assault gun is my favourite (still all a bit too 40K for me - for obvious reasons!).  Lovely lookin' work though.

Well, it funded! Nice one to all the backers, thanks for the support. It should take about 10 weeks to get all the models cast and sent.

I put up the Battle Dog and Pug in the web store. These were the end result of the Kickstarter, which I delivered on. The parts are all available separately too as usual. And dont forget, Ramshackle Games models include free world wide shipping in the price, so what you see is what you pay for delivery to your door. :lol:  The kit comes supplied with either the sponsons or the spaced armour.

That is pretty darn cool.  Amazing also that you managed to include 5 gun options as well as the ability to be turreted or hull mounted as well as the other various options and all for less shipped than the MSRP for a Leman Russ. 

Unfortunately I've got all the imperial tanks I'll ever need, but I will definitely be directing people to this when I see folks looking for alternative tank models.

Curtis, congratulations on your KS success.  I caught the review that the guys did on Beasts of War.  Nice to see some love from them.  Good work.
This is my boomstick!
