Puppets War Speed in Like a Thunderbolt

September 21, 2012 by dracs

Puppets War have just released a new vehicle to send your sci-fi super soldiers swooping over the battlefield to deliver some blistering fire power. Check out the Thunderbolt Light Air Speeder!

Puppets War - Thunderbolt Light Air Speeder Side

With Speeders now so useful in 6th edition, this miniature will provide you with the alternate model to set your troops apart. The set apparently comes with about 12 different weapons, meaning you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to killing your enemies. Shall you fry then with a flamer or blast them with a bolter? Both are good.

While I think the general sculpt is rather nice, I’m not particularly fond of the way the front pilot has no protection and is completely open top. While it may allow for him to leap off if need be, it does rather leave the whole thing looking like a hyper advance arm chair.

Who would use this in their army? Does anyone fancy fighting their battles from an arm chair?
