Built For Glory!

Written by Spartan Chris | Tags: ,

High above the waves the Illustrious Class Sky Fortress gracefully glides into battle, held aloft by six gigantic manoeuvring rotors and the Royal Engineering Corps’ most advanced Sturginium Gravitation Generators. But do not let the majestic soaring fool you, this is a beast born for war, with a host of deadly and devastating weapons that it brings to the fight. It can pummel you with turret fire while deadly squadrons of fighters and fighter bombers launch, ready to bring even more death and destruction to the fray. Illustrious is the name of this model, but its enemies may perhaps rename it to Infamous once they’ve felt its wrath in battle.

Hot on the heels of the Eagle Class War Rotor, the Illustrious is a mean carrier. The final result is a progression of the design ethos that goes into the Britannian fleet, that good old fashioned industrial revolution aesthetic taken to new, and in this case, literal, height of design.

With a big centrepiece model like this we have spent more time on the rotors. We always need to be conscious of the physical size of such things as rotors, not being broken off during gaming and so on, but we’ve made the rotors on this model larger than previous models. The rotors are also in two parts, allowing the pewter prop to be glued at differing angles, and the resin rotor arm can be rotated as well.

This is a great support model to have in your fleet, and we think it is a great choice for Britannian commanders to bring to the fight.
