Many years ago, in one of the first White Dwarfs I ever owned there was an advert for a Squat Tarantula, a heavy weapon artillery platform. I never bought one but I always remembered…
Twenty five or so years later and I have the next best thing: The Mantic Hailstorm Cannon!
I wasn’t sure about this model at first. I might not have bought it if it hadn’t come in the Mantic Warpath boxed game starter set, but it has grown on me.
I don’t know if Mantic intended this to be used as a Tarantula in games of 40K, but the closest thing in the Squat codex I’m working from is definitely that.
With this complete I’ve now finished the support element of my army.
Just six Squat infantry to finish now and then I’m done!
