Can't say I'll be rushing out to buy them. Maybe they'll grow on me.

always thought the last set of craters were a bit ... cheap.

these look to .... sharp? i do like the "realistic" tank bits

as for the void shield generator, it's rules are so hideously written that the model is almost beside the point. i don't have strong feelings about the model one way or the other, just that if it exists, i'll have to work out how make the rules work at events i run AND still have the event be fun (rather than a "i have all these toys that make your army useless, so just sit there for an hour while i roll dice and remove your models one after the other")

Maybe the craters are better if they blend into the game board. As they are, they look more like circles of rubble than craters.

Craters are really hard to do, they need to be a depression below the surface. I think you've got to take that into account if you want to have craters that look pretty.

According to a 3rd party site (Bell of Lost Souls) there were only ever 1000 void shields made. dunno if that's true but it would explain being sold out.

Yup, that was right. Retailers were limited ordering 1 per store. (Ours was #982 of 1000)

Unsurprisingly it didn't last long.
