Then I'll kitbash my own Matador out of concrete! And Blackjacks! And-*WHAP*

Okay, fine, just the concrete.

I kind of like how it looks, actually. The mini sucks, but the actual artwork is passable; Better than several others, at the least.

Absolutely agree. In fact it may have grabbed me more than almost any other design in that book when I first got it. It had 'the look' you want from a giant walking war machine- part of which was the perspective, mind you. It was big, upright, looked absolutely fearless and powerful. I'd run like hell from that thing if I met it in the streets. (That the loadout, for an urban combat machine, is pretty ideal doesn't hurt the cause either!)

Oh, look, the topic got bumped.

Me dicen el matador me están buscando
En una fría pensión los estoy esperando
Agazapado en lo más oscuro de mi habitación
Fusil en mano, espero mi final

Saw your 2014 post. Weird that someone necro this thread. riht?

Yep. No one commented first time through, so I figured I'd take the thread necro to explain my post. Glad to see someone else heard of the song. :)

honestly.. i have to disagree. the art is kinda meh, but the Mini actually does a good job of making it seem decent. especially since it actually has something of a pose.

The Matador looks like the future of the 1920s come to take its revenge on the future of the 1980s and if we can get it to then take on the future of the 2010s I'd like to support it in that endeavor.

Heard it in the radio when the album was new. I am from the same country that the band is.
