Review: 28mm steampunk inspired heavy weapons (Part 2)
Very little clean-up was needed. I only found one place with a little bit of mold release left over, and that was gone in a jiffy. I would still recommend giving the kits a good washing though as it is resin and all.
As promised here's a few pics showing off the awesome detail in the kits:
No Insturctions... Although to be honest these kits are super easy to put together and I really don't see a need for printed instructions. The only time I wished I had a picture was assembly of the Rocket Launcher. I used the pictures that were on thee kick-starter page for reference. IF the good Col. Gravis reads this, maybe putting up some finished model pics on your website with a note as to where we could see the pics would be nice in the future.
There were also a couple of mold lines here and there but they were easily removed with a file.
And as requested by "Buffer" in the last post here is a comparison shot of the Bombardier.

Review: 28mm steampunk inspired heavy weapons (Part 1)
Some of you might remember this post IG Heavy Weapons from Curious Constructs. Well I received my pledge the other day, (last week, but I was on vacation so it doesn't count) and thought I might as well get a review up of everything that came in the box.
Unpacking: ;) look at all these new toys!
Kit and Detail: The kits themselves are very nicely done, and go together in a breeze. The detail on these is simply amazing, from the rear of the gun-shield to the pistons and machine parts on the guns themselves. I am more than impressed with the work and attention to detail that went into these, it really makes these look sharp. I'll get some more pics of the individual weapons up in Part 2, as I begin to assemble them.
And last but not least, here's the start of the "Bombardier", I just couldn't wait to get started on this guy, he's still a WIP but for 30 minutes of painting he'll fit in perfectly with my army. Now I just have to pick a name for this guy.
Great stuff and I'm really looking forward to finishing some of these up to use in my army. More detailed pics of the weapons and assembly in Part 2.
