Having seen the announcement only a couple of weeks ago, I was a little surprised to see that the Chronos Pattern Ironcrawler available to pre-order next week.
This kit is a combination of plastic and resin, and it will be available to pre-order next week from Forge World.
I do like this model and think it is a much better model than the Cargo-8 Ridgehauler. I was a bit on the fence with the Cargo-8 Ridgehauler and never bought one. Though they did bring out the trailer and the Promethium Tanks trailer, the concept didn’t really work for me.
I do like the Chronos Pattern Ironcrawler model, it has a realistic industrial feel to it. I can see this not just in the Ash Wastes, but also in games of Warhammer 40K. I quiet like the Necromunda range has some nice models that can add to the look and feel of 40K scenery and games.
Now with the Chronos Pattern Ironcrawler I am also thinking that this could make a good hauler for a land train. Then I got thinking about making some armed and armoured trailers for a land train. One option would be to add wheels instead of the tracks to the Chronos Pattern Ironcrawler, as the chassis is probably the same as the Cargo-8 Ridgehauler.
Another idea I have thought about for the Chronos Pattern Ironcrawler is to paint it in JCB yellow as a piece of scenery. Though it is missing a dozer blade.
Well add this model to my ever increasing list of wants!
