Mongoose Publishing at Salute 2013

Two new releases for Salute from Mongoose!

The awesome Manta Prowl Tank and the Sov Judge Invasion Force

Manta Prowl Tank

The Manta Prowl Tank was the Justice Department’s answer to a growing crime wave. Often regarded as a mobile floating fortress of anti-crime measures, the Manta can strike fear into the heart of the most desperate perp and is fully capable of dealing with entire riots by itself. With clear skies, the Manta can reach great speed and features a Peterson High Intensity Laser Cannon with adjustable wide beam mode, stumm gas dispensers and riot foam jets as its primary armament; allowing it to tackle anything from an angry mob to the most heavily armoured vehicle. In addition, the Manta is also armed with two twin-linked fast action anti-personnel lasers and can be further modified with heavier weaponry as the situation demands, potentially making them the equal of any battle tank in terms of firepower. On board holding cells can imprison up to thirty perps.

Two pilots control its great bulk with exceptional agility, while four street judges constantly monitor on-board scanners for any sign of local crime, ready to take the Law to perps outside upon Lawmasters stored within the Manta’s forward bay. There are also compartments that allow on-board tek- and med-judges to function effectively, while more street judges monitor the holding cells, communications and weapon systems of the tank. Overall command is given to a senior judge.

With such awesome capability wrapped into one heavily armoured hull, the Manta Prowl Tank is an outward symbol of the judges’ absolute authority within Mega-City One.

This is a resin model with some metal parts that requires some assembly and painting.

Sov Judges

After years of meticulous planning, Supreme Judge Bulgarin of East Meg One launched the Apocalypse War against Mega-City One. Through the use of nukes, the Apocalypse Shield and a full scale invasion under Warmarshal Kazan, Mega-City One was subjugated quickly, with half of its 800 million citizens killed. Through the heroic actions of a handful of judges, Mega-City One was able to finally win the war, destroying East Meg One in the process. However, there are many in East Meg Two who plan revenge against the west…

An East Meg Invasion Force is designed to eradicate all resistance in Mega-City One. With well-equipped and well-trained judges, not to mention the dreaded Sentenoids, it is very much an ‘elite’ force.
