So, here it is another piece you can use for your games. Due the last losses in the war versus the infamous General Dragan... high command decided to test one of the most secret weapons of the empire, the STOMPER!

Armed with coupled light autocannons and standing over two robust steel legs, this anthropoid tank can move thru places forbidden to other units.
Ingame STATS for the Medium Stomper are:

Quote:
SPEED: 3
GUN: II
ARMOR (F/S/R): I/0/0
RANGE: 2+
ARC: 90ยบ
SPECIAL: Can move thru Blocking terrain (not trees) and Water. It can shoot from blocking terrain but Line of Shight rules still apply (cant shoot over other blocked squares)


This unit adds the mechanics of crossing blocking terrain, this can make the difference in narrow alleys and blocking safe passages that otherwise are impossible to reach. Movement is not much (legged tank technology is on its beginnings) and has very weak armor, but the coupled guns are a threat to almost all tanks on the battlefield.

you can get the 3D model here at Thingiverse

Really nice model you have here, just a simple question though.
Would enemy tanks be able to shoot at it while it's in a building space? In the picture you have, would a unit be able to destroy it while it's in its position?

I assume it is possible, you can shoot into and from a building space but not across it. As the rules says: "There must be nothing between the tank which shoots and the target tank but empty spaces", that rule only specifies squares between, so you can shoot to and from a blocking terrain Anyway that rule is "changed" with the Fun Pack as "low terrain" and "water" don't block LOS.

If you enjoyed the model, you can get your paper model to make it big and cool HERE
