Forge World Un-Boxing: Tau Manta

By Rob Baer | December 26th, 2011 | Categories: Forge World, Product Review, Tau, Unboxing, Warhammer 40k

Every wonder what one of the most expensive kits Forge World makes looks like in real life?

Me and Jkin were taking the other day about how cool it would be to have a Tau Manta, and then we wonder just how much work it would actually be to assemble, lol. 

So to the internet we went.  I ended up finding these pictures of an unboxed Tau Manta. 

Unfortunately the forum I found them on had a virus, and so I got hit with some malware. Sooo I won’t be linking back to it.

This kit looks pretty sweet, but daunting at the same time.  I like how you also get resin Crisis suit legs that bend at the knees (or it appears you can make them nomally as well).

Compare it’s size to the kitchen cabniets behind it, and this GW employee.

Un-boxing below, enjoy MBG







Suits and tanks: 


Burst cannon parts: 


Another part of the cockpit: 


The crew: 


Fire Warriors: 


The gun racks, the top ones are empty while the bottum ones have the butt of the rifles sticking out. 


Panels and legs: 


Thats about it. It also came with two transfer sheets (one black, one white).
