Aquan Command Helix Unboxing

More pictures than sense in this one... but this is an awesome Helix to unbox and is only £50, or £40 if you are part of a Games Club that is part of the Games Club Network (and you buy direct from Spartan), that 20% discount will go far! 

This post includes a quick scale comparison (at the bottom of the post)

LOTS of pictures after the Jump!

As usual the box is packed with the helix, a free flyer and some nice packing bubble wrap (always useful to help me sell all the other things I don't play anymore! 

All the items from the box laid out, but not unbaked. 

All the contents of the Helix, Left to right, 8 Infantry Bases (all upgraded), 4 Marana's & 1 Malani! 

A couple of snaps of the Malani and all its components, this is the focus of the helix, and the model does not disappoint (later pictures show this in a bit more detail!)

The Marana's I already own four from the Recon Helix, and quite like them, looking forward to getting all 8 on the table top! 

The Two Crystals you can call in, although with no Sky Drop markers this guy will need to be used with other things that bring Sky Drop Markers to the table.

The Infantry, 1 command team base, 3 Gun bases and 3 Sweeper bases (the lizard riders at the bottom). No need to use the Infantry upgrade pack with this helix, it comes upgraded already! 

The Underside of the Malani, you will never see it in your game, but it still looks awesome with some great detail

The Malani with the gun turrets attached on top.

The Malani from behind, hopefully none of my opponents get this view too often! 

The final part of the Malani, without the Flash removed. 

Now for some daylight shots, and with flash removed. All the components to make the Malani.

The Malani complete with gun turrets

And finally, fully assembled, and boy does it make an intimidating sight face on.

The final couple of images were to show you the scale of this model next to an Ultramarine, mainly so you can get an idea of the size of the resin you are purchasing, and because they are one of the most recognisable models in the gaming industry so everyone should know the scale of this model.

Great post!
And great subject... In fact, I've been halfway through my own version of it for a few days now. The Aquan Mind Delve must be starting to kick in...

Not started painting it yet, working on the Directorate one that I snagged at the same time lol.

This guy is next up... then followed by a Recon and Infantry upgrade helix...
