Khurasan Robot Walker

Another build for Khurasan Miniatures, ready for some advance publicity. This was described to me as a robotic walker used by the same faction (Nova Respublik) that fields the Red Banner series of tanks.

"Good!", I thought, another chance to make ruthless, brutal people's avengers for glorious use against oppressors of proletariat! (say that last phrase with bad Russian accent. Makes more sense).

So, after a few iterations, Jon approved the walker, and away we went. One initial model was called for, but as usual, I tend to get carried away. A resupply version, a cannon-toting variant, and a multi-rocket "Katyusha" type variant with multiple unguided rocket tubes soon popped into existence.

The primary variant. Loaded with 8 Rocket-Propelled Grenade tubes, for anti-armor or anti-bunker use.
The Katyusha variant. Used for artillery-type saturation.
The Cannon variant. Direct fire, with paired 25mm cannon.
The Reloader. A walking ammo magazine, able to keep the RPG-armed units fighting. The reload tubes line up right behind the launch racks. They put on some soft music, turn the lights down low, transfer the goods, and everyone's happy (except the enemy, of course).
Well, that's all for now.

Best,
JBR
