Relthoza Leviathan Planetfall Unboxing

Ta-da-da-dah!

Yes, it's been a long wait - having completely failed in my intention of writing shorter more frequent blogs, I found I've had so much on I've actually achieved zero. Ho hum...still, at least it's a good one now - the second half of the Leviathan helixes for Planetfall, starting with the Relthoza. I won't mess around, here they are;

So, three Leviathans, each following the familiar format of box with glossy sleeve;


Now let's look at the Relthoza in detail first (of course!)


Sorry about the fuzzy picture, my camera set itself to something weird on the flash...anyway, opening this box up;


Resin Goodies!


Taking all this out of the box, I noticed something stuck to the cardboard....


This is a nice little touch for tracking their QC and making sure customers can get replacements for mispacks etc - typical of how Spartan Games thinks of its customers, its a small thing but much appreciated by anyone unlucky enough to not get everything they expected to with a casting issue.

Anyway, back to the resin;


With everything out (I forgot the main base here), its quite a haul - that scorpion machine is BIG! It comes in two main parts, body and tail, plus eight legs, four cannon and two mounts, plus the sting in the tail. Here's the main tail section;


...and the body...





Looking at the last picture, you can see how the body has a female recess for the positive one of the tail, which should result in a strong bond when glueing. Next up is the tail mounted toxin projector, which fits with a ball-and socket joint like the legs, allowing you some freedom in posing.



Legs are next, and these appear to be the same as used in the other Relthoza heavy units.


Last parts for the leviathan itself are the weapons, quad cannons which mount on two holder units which are ball-and socket jointed, again allowing some flexibility of posing.


Finally filling out the helix are the ubiquitous smalls, the Relthoza one is a nice little model - one of my favourites in Planetfall, though not the easiest to paint due to its legs and detail - that's a good thing though, right?




So there we have it, the Relthoza Leviathan - an awesome looking model and one I'm really looking forward to building and painting (its already having its detergent wash before priming!).

See you soon (I promise, this time!) with the next Leviathan - the Aquan!
