Unboxing The Devils Run - The Dominator

"Size does matter..."

The Dominator is a multi-faction model for Word Forge Games post-apocalyptic miniatures game 'The Devils Run'. The missions, instructions, advanced instructions and some 'print and play' tiles, tokens and stat cards from the 'Route 666' starter set can be downloaded from here if you'd like a bit of a taster.

The Devils Run
The Devil's Run: Route 666 is a fast-moving and hard-hitting vehicular combat board game set in a post-apocalyptic America; Each player controls a gang of ramshackle vehicles and their characterful drivers as they race across the remains of America to lay claim to aid drops, food and fuel. Each gang will do whatever it takes to get to there first...bash, crash, smash, race, win!

The Dominator
The Dominator can be taken by either The Law Haulage Company, The Jets or The Avante Guard though only The Law can take multiples. The named version is a Freelancer so can join any faction.

A Note About Resin Models.
Due to the moulding process many resin models come with extraneous bits of resin that needs to be removed ranging from large lumps to smaller bits of flash and this should be removed carefully in order to avoid damaging any detail. Also it's worth noting that many resin models have a slightly greasy feel caused by the substance they use to stop them sticking to the moulds during production and this can cause issues with paint not sticking to the model properly. Carefully washing the parts in soapy water will remove this should your model be unduly affected. Parts that are bent (or that aren't and you want to be) can be corrected by heating up slightly in warm water and then bending into the required configuration.

The Dominator - Unassembled
Here are some pictures of the unassembled parts.

The Dominator - Stat and Upgrade Cards
The Dominator comes with seven cards. There's stat cards for the generic and named versions of the vehicle itself, one for a character driver and four weapon upgrades. Some of the upgrades are generic while others are faction specific.

The Dominator - Assembled
This model is for the most part a single piece with the exception of the 'Harpoon'. This weapon requires some flash removing before attachment but is otherwise issue free. Some extra clean-up was required around the front of the vehicle as there's a fair sized lump of resin to remove.

Here's a few close-up pictures as well.

The LAW 1138 Harpoon is an upgrade specific to the Law Haulage faction so if you're using the vehicle with a different faction then there's a hatch on the vehicles roof underneath where it would go so you still have detail in that location.

Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.
