Dwarf Flame Cannon
Brave Dwarven Engineers of the Thunder Mountain colony prepare to drown Oogie Spazzjabber and his Gobbos in a miniature lake of liquid fire...if they don't blow themselves up instead!
I can remember not liking this model way back in my twenties and swearing I'd never own it. I thought it looked too silly and not dignified enough for Dwarves. Over the years I've lightened up a bit and now I like it.
The improvised, ramshackle look of the thing is appealing to me now, It has a humble, slightly comical, yet still menacing look to it, sort of like a Trojan pot-bellied pig.
And the crew figures are great...cringing desperately as though certain the blasted thing is going to blow up and kill them...
...yet they're gamely sticking to their posts, as if the horrible risk they're taking will be totally worth it if they get to cook a big batch of Gobbos or Clan Rats in a hellish blast of naptha. I'm glad I changed my mind about this model and I'm keen to try it out on some Goblins soon. I still draw the line at some things, though. Example: I will NEVER own an Empire Steam Tank or a Hot Pot Catapult.
