Will the real M5 gun please step forward

Will the real M5 gun please step forward. For those who don't know the M5 gun is not a giant squid but it is an effective 3" ATG.

Got these from Craig at gaming models, they are great little sculpts and don't even need to be based.

Does make for a nice replacement for the squids!

It may just be me...but the scale seems off on the cat.


On another note, I like the artillery pieces he has been creating. I bought a couple of different ones to check on the level of detail and was pleasantly surprised.

She is kinda a Godzilla type cat threat :D

They aren't bad sculpts and fairly durable compared to most of the other 15mm guns out there. AAM is of course the most resilliant of any options out there.

These are going out to the attendees of the last maisecon. I didn't quite have them finished for the convention last year.
