Airfix preview video for A06302 Supacat Coyote A05301 Supacat Jackal.
You may recall from a previous blog post that I thought they would make for really nice Imperial Guard armoured vehicles. As they are 1/48th scale they would fit very well with the 25/28mm size of the Imperial Guard. Of course with some ramshackle additions they would also make for some really nice Ork vehicles too.
The Manticore is a mobile multiple rocket launcher variant built on the Chimera chassis. The launcher is capable of firing a variety of rockets, from standard high explosive fragmentation warheads to oxyphosphur incendiary warheads, from air-gas to surface-to-air interceptor missiles.

This impressive Imperial Guard Hydra was from the Forge World display cabinets at GamesDay 2007.
The Hydra’s main role is defending mobile Imperial Guard attacks from the unwanted attentions of enemy aircraft. Even in the abscence of airborne threats, the Hydra’s long barrelled auto-cannons are still a potent weapon against lighter vehicles and infantry.
So there I was looking through the Airfix preview for 2012 when I saw two models of desert buildings and immediately thought they would make for really nice scenery for Warhammer 40K.
As they are 1/48th scale they would fit very well with the 25/28mm size of models for Warhammer 40K.
Of course with some ramshackle additions they would make for some really nice Ork buildings, though I think they would also work as Tallarn style desert buildings.
Knowing Airfix, we probably won’t see these in the flesh until the latter part of 2012, but they do have potential.
