Really great and a huge improvement. The one thing I would suggest is to narrow the helmet quite a bit to match a fragile elvish aesthetics.

Yes, perfect. There is even a bit of a Rogue Trader feel about the poses that I love.


Thanks yes I'm pretty pleased with the design myself. :)

Not possible to change the design now these are already at the casters for moulding.

We're talking about 6mm scale anyway, you can't go too thin without the sculpt becoming fragile or just looking wrong in the other direction. A bit out of proportion is necessary at this size.

Well, let’s agree to disagree on this one Forgotten. It is already on the way and it looks nice anyhow.

Eloi Federation – Tempest Grav-tank - £8.00
Image
Quote:
Tempest grav-tank
The Tempest is the most commonly encountered anti-gravity combat vehicle of the Eloi Federation. A swift and highly manoeuvrable vehicle combining unprecedented mobility with lethal and highly accurate firepower.
Tempests are known to be crewed by two Eloi, a pilot/driver and a weapons operator both of which sit in the small rear compartment. The apparent central cockpit is in fact a highly advanced sensor array, real time data gathering module and terrain following suite linked directly to the crew by a neural linked helmet interface. This gives both crew members unprecedented situational awareness of their surroundings on the battlefield.
Common armaments for the dorsal turret are a high energy long barrelled laser cannon deadly against armoured targets in combination with a tri-barrelled pulse laser providing rapid fire capability against infantry and light vehicle targets, other weapon combinations have also been observed.
The graceful curvature and the thick well slopped composite armour plates of Eloi vehicles provide excellent protection from enemy fire but it is the tanks speed and agility that is considered to be its primary defensive measure.
Set contains:
3 x Tempest grav-tank hulls
3 x Tempest turrets
Model approximate dimensions: L 41mm, W 26mm, H 7.5mm not including turret

Eloi Federation – Zephyr Grav-tank - £8.50
Image
Quote:
Zephyr recon tank

The Zephyr is an extensively modified version of the Tempest grav-tank created to fulfil a reconnaissance role for Eloi armoured battlegroups. Modifications for this vehicle include further silencing of the already quiet main drive engines and the fitting of a chameleon like cloaking field array to the forward hull sections that when active mimics the appearance and colouring of the surrounding terrain rendering the vehicle extremely hard to see. The rear compartment has been extended backwards allowing room for a small scout team to be embarked as required.

Armaments are usually of the lighter kind than seen on the Tempest as the Zephyrs roll is information gathering and observation of enemy activity ahead of the Eloi advance not combat. But on occasion it has been recorder that Zephyr stealth attack squadrons fitted with heavier firepower have been used to great effect in aggressive hit and run attacks on isolated enemy formations and lightly defended positions.

Set contains:

3 x Zephyr grav-tank hulls

3 x Zephyr turrets

Model approximate dimensions: L 46mm, W 31mm, H 8.5mm not including turret

Grav tanks look beautiful :) I'm not keen on the infantry though - the heads look comically oversized compared to their bodies and it doesn't look right.

Agreed. Proportions get tweaked at small scales to emphasize particular parts so they show up at a distance. They're pretty sweet in RL tabletop.
