Today we are going to unbox and build this new mini so you can decide if it is worth your hard-earned hobby dollars. So with our further ado let’s get cracking.
Commander Shadowsun: $45
Get Yours For Less From Miniature Market!
Shadowsun’s cutting-edge battlesuit is equipped with a flechette launcher, two high-energy fusion blasters (either of which can be replaced with a dispersed fusion blaster), a light missile pod and a pulse pistol. She is also accompanied by one MV37 Advanced Guardian Drone and one MV62 Command-link Drone.
This kit is supplied in 52 plastic components and contains 1x Citadel 50mm Round Base, 2x Citadel 32mm Round Bases and 2x Long Flying Stems.
Once you get the box open you will notice that there are a few options when it comes to weapons and head swaps. There is also a lot of small sub-assemblies needed to get this mini ready for the tabletop. That being said, if you are new to the hobby, just take your time and dry fit all the parts before adding any glue to the bits.
Another great feature built into this kit is the sockets for the Drone flight stands. This is a really great design and it’s cool to see GW port this idea over from 3rd party manufacturers like Magnet Baron. This technique is a great addition to this kit and we hope to see this utilized with more flying miniatures in the future!And here she is! This new miniature from GW has a ton of detail and features a striking dynamic pose. Games Workshop may drop the ball on the rules form time to time, but they didn’t drop the ball on this miniature’s design.
Here she is next to the Greater Good Shadowstar from Wargames Exclusive, aka “Not Shadowsun”!
