MANTIS Air Defence system.

I’m often drawn to the weird and quirky (my scattergun approach to gaming that I’ve displayed here should illustrate this) so when I saw that MJ Figures on of the newer companies offering 20mm goodies had released a set of modern automated base defence turrets I ordered a set straight away.

Basically a full package consists of 6 35mm turrets and 2 radar sets that can track and destroy any incoming missiles that are aim at the base it is protecting.

The following links should explain it better:

The link to the MJ figures site is:

As you can see I bought half a systems worth, I’m sure I can work them into some sort of base defence game. Also I’ve got the half baked idea to put them to some Sci- Fi use in the future… we’ll have to see.

Cheers,

Pete.
