I got those with one big order (got to blow all that combat pay on something) I placed at Khurasan a couple of months ago... Unfortunately, in the process, I also blew some of the Customs Department tripwires and ended up paying and waiting a bit more than expected. My mistake, not John's...
Anyway, what's in the box?
- The Python Power Armour:
|Both poses (on a 1cm grid): identical missile launchers (top) and bodies (centre), four different dual laser arms (left and right), different (symmetric) legs (bottom).|
- The Corsair Battle Dress:
- As usual: great sculpt, perfect casting.
- Compared to CMG Ayame, those lack a bit of modularity (as in possible variants, not just poses). The Python has none at all, and even the Corsairs looks a bit samey to me...
- Although they're in different ranges (not-russian or not-arabs from Khurusan "main" sci-fi range for the Python, and "Earthdoom" for the Corsair) they work quite well with each other. Rounded yet not organic body, realistic "industrial" limbs, small horizontal viewslit... I could see the Corsair being a much more recent product of the same manufacturer than the Python.
- I don't have the minis with me right now, so I can't measure them, but I did took a scale comparison pic...
