That way, you can really get down and dirty and create whatever you want. If you love Anvil Industry, check out what else they have been up to!

Ogre Mech suit 2Here’s what they have to say about the new model:

  • This kit contains enough parts to build 1 OGRE Suit.
  • The OGRE stands at 45mm tall and suits a 40mm/50mm base.

DeamonSlayer-KnightThe multipart kit of the DeamonSlayer-Knight can be assembled in a wide range of poses and has many weapons and customization options.

  • The kit contains a total of 72 parts.
  • Fully assembled it stands 11cm tall.

Perfect as a centerpiece for your tabletop army, as a cool display piece on your desk, or even as parts for use in your conversions!

It’s a very cool kit that can be converted up and used for a number of things from Warsuits to Dreads and more.  The model itself is about 150ml of resin and takes roughly 6 Anycubic Photon-sized printing plates about 24 total hours to produce. We’ve seen these a decent amount, and man, they look awesome on the table!

Chapter Specific Impulsor Kits- Full Rhinoback Upgrade: $29.99

Chapter Specific Impulsor kitsWhile this isn’t a full vehicle kit, we’ve seen these all over the place and they always look great!

We’ve used a ton of their kits in the past and they always fit on without much work and are super high-quality. If you want an easy conversion to set your Impulsors apart, this is perfect! If you love what Pop Goes the Monkey is up to, check out some of their other stuff here!

This conversion kit is meant to fit the Primaris Impulsor model kit (Not the Repulsor kit). We kept the standard “Top-Hatch” fitting of our Rhino Chassis parts so, this kit will allow you to incorporate many of our other conversation parts like missile launchers and turret weapons.

The front plate replaces the associated part of the Impulsor kit, but the rest of the parts like the crew compartment and vehicle insignias are simply added to your model. The best part is that our branded tailgate slots into a working hinge on the back section of the crew compartment. It can open and once it’s closed, it snaps into place.

Impulsor Front Plate: $15.99
