Something about the obvious swivel-mounted main guns for 360 degree air and ground coverage just said Guardian to me. The Sniper looks like a one shot/one kill kind of beastie.

Goliath? Warden? Praetorian? Personally, the first two are good, but the third fits into the "roman theme" that's growing around the current Elites.

No it's a different body altogether and slightly smaller sarcophagus as it was to tall with the siege models fitted.

Height is approx. 18mm

Thanks for the info! The design still has to grow a bit on me, but I really love the side views. It's also nice to see the link between this one and the siege walker.

I can imagine that you'll be planning some more weapon variants in the future?

Also, would it be possible to have a pic of the Gladiator and Breacher next to one another?

Yes there will be more weapon and maybe hull variants in the future and maybe a different sarcophagus or two too.

I'll see if I can get ben to do a pic of both together.

One thing I really liked about Onslaught's Talos Syndicate machines is that they have both left and right handed versions of all the weapons. Not a high priority per se, but it does enable some cool modelling possibilities.

I'm digging the 'uniform' look of the walkers, I wonder if Ben could do a regular piloted walker in that same style. :)

By the way, if/when the Recon troops will be designs, could we have something like this?

Some stuff I'd still like to see:
  • Additional weapons for the Gladiator:
    -switched versions of the existing weapons
    -fusion cannon
    -twin linked automatic cannons
    -twin linked heavy machine guns
    -plasma cannon
    -conversion weapon
    -heavy flame cannon
  • Smaller variant of the Gladiator of about 11-12mm tall
  • Recon troopers
  • Recon skimmer that can carry recon troops
  • Bikes (+ bike with carriage variant)
  • Recon troops on bikes
  • More aircraft/etc.
  • Artillery tanks (Archer and Bombadier), maybe based on the Trojan hull?
  • Heavily armed transport aircraft based on the Kakapo (but slightly beefier)
  • Super heavy tanks, basically various variants that function as the Elites' counterpart of the Novan Citadel hull

I know this is just a wish list, but one can dream right? :D
