Xanthos XNT-70 mini
« on: 22 March 2018, 19:02:02 »
I just got it today and it looks nice, but I'm wondering if it's mislabled?  It seems to match the stats for the XNT-60.

That's the old Xanthos mini.  I'm talking about the new one that was just released and isn't in the IWM online store yet.

Both the 60 and the 70 are.  The appearance of the mini seems to match the stats of the 60 (particularly the center torso LRM rack and mounting 6 secondary guns rather than 4) than the 70, so I thought I'd ask.

Maybe it's like some of the other minis that come with extra parts to make other variants?

I mean if the difference between the two is 2 secondary guns and a LRM rack, just don't glue them on  :D
(But i've not seen pictures of this mini, so i'm talking straight outta my arse)

The LRM rack is part of the body, not a separate piece.

And I like to glue as many pieces onto my minis as possible, because I like mechs with more guns. >:D

Are you the guy I won a Lot of minis from off eBay several years back then?  Among them was a Reseen Stinger, with SIX arms!   :o

Yeah, it looks like a -60 to me, with no apparent options to make it a -70.

Yeah it is the -60, looks like we missed the few items to adjust from the source we were using. In the end it is still a great looking Xanthos.

It looks a little like the bugs from Starship Troopers. I will try to get a picture later unless someone beats me to it.
