Atomic Tank Preview from Hydra Miniatures

How about a new Atomic Tank preview on this dreary quarantine Monday?

Adam Rodgers from Desert Island Designs recently finished two kick-ass sculpts for the Robot Legion. The first preview is a Ripperbot. Many of you saw a similar proxy model that was used for playtesting, but now we have the real thing. We think Adam did a great job on this model and can’t wait to see more sculpts from him.

Solo Rules from Traders Galaxy

Ok be gentle :). This is my first trial at writing solo rules. Please give this scenario a try and let me know how you go. Personally I think it will be really difficult.

Its quite dependent on models of course. I was thinking Deceiver or Atlantican Air Warriors for the henchmen when I was writing it.

I look forward to hearing how it goes.!

Adam Rodgers, Sculptor

Adam Rodgers, Sculptor


With many years of  3DS Max, Zbrush and Photoshop under my belt, I still strive to learn new techniques, applications and work flows, currently I’m concentrating on improving my 2D and texturing skills using Substance, PS and Quixel Suite, while also returning to the basics of perspective and values for the creation of Environments and Concepting.  My Recent work has included the sculpting of 15mm Tabletop figures right upto 60ft Megaladon Sharks and 35ft Stag Beetles created in Steel and illuminated from within and a few things in between on the side :).

Recent Clients have inlcuded Pioneer,  The cunard Line, Blackpool Tourism Board, White Dragon Miniatures and a host of others.

In terms of my strengths, I would say that as well as being able to deliver top notch, optimized to the gills production ready assets with speed, accuracy and flare, I have a very strong understanding of the technical requirements and work flows that can get, not only myself, but those around me to the teams goals quicker, better and happier.

I look forward to working with you in the near future :).

Trial Rules from Traders Galaxy

Trial Rules - Squadrons and Platoons.

Please feel free to try out these trial rules -

Squadrons and Platoons

In Bot War some vehicles, helicopters and planes can be used in 2 ways. The first is that they can be taken singly as an individual unit. These models use the stat card as it is and operate as normal in the game. The second way is by grouping identical models together into a Squadron or a Platoon. A Platoon refers to identical ground units grouped together, and a Squadron refers to identical air units grouped together. If a model can be used in a Squadron or a Platoon, it will be listed in the Super Ability section on their stat card. In either a Platoon or a Squadron, identical models may be taken in a group of 3 or a group of 5 only. Models are taken at the start of the game as a Squadron or Platoon and will always be considered as such throughout the whole game.

The following rules apply to Squadrons or Platoons.

- For each model in the Squadron or Platoon, an additional point is added to the Strategy Rating on the stat card. For example a Snake Corp ABT has an SR2. A Platoon of 3 ABT’s will have a SR4. As models are destroyed, the SR rating will be reduced by 1 for each destroyed model in the Squadron or Platoon.

- All Squadrons or Platoons must be placed on a 3 or 5 space movement tray depending on whether 3 or 5 models are chosen.

- Once in a Squadron or a Platoon, the models will all activate as a single model on the single movement tray base. This means that the whole Squadron or Platoon will receive the same activation allocation as a single model normally would. Essentially the Squadron or Platoon is treated as a single model for the purposes of Activating, Movement, Ranged Attack or Close Attack.

- All Squadrons or Platoons have the Sustained Fire (Strafing Run) Special Rule.

- For each damage point sustained by the Squadron or Platoon, remove one model and adjust the SR rating.

- Each model in the Squadron or Platoon still contributes its full Energy Cube allocation to the faction. For example – A Platoon of 3 ABT’s generates 3 energy cubes total and still has the Efficient Special Rule.
