Today we review the Cannon, Missile Launcher, and Radar/Comm dish from Quantum Gothic, a company producing Sci-Fi Gothic wargaming scenery and miniatures set in a time where the multiverse of mankind is engulfed by endless bloody wars. Here you can see the 3 kits we ordered, each arrived in blister packs as shown below. We chose these as they look like they’ll fit right into several of the our wargames we play, especially Warhammer 40k with its gothic theme.
We’re going to crack open the Quantum Gothic Cannon first, this kit is priced at £17.10 (around $26.50) and contains the parts shown below. There are 11 resin pieces along with a couple of documents and some foam to protect it all.
The kit comes with a few pages of black and white instructions, nothing flashy but definitely adequate for assembling this kit.
The other document included in the kit is an advert for the world of Quantum Gothic:
“The world is at war. Condemned by the twisted power of the Ancient, mankind is a scattered force, clinging to an existence of bloodshed and torment, trapped in a vicious deadlock of terrifying events, as time and space collapse upon themselves hour by bloody hour. An endless array of realities are born and reborn at the whims of an alien evil from the Void; an evil with an insatiable hunger that can only be sated by the energy of war.”
It made us chuckle that this product comes with a warning of being a chucking hazard rather than a choking hazard :p
The resin parts included in the Cannon kit are highly detailed and very nicely cast. You can see here that we have the base part, which is common across several of Quantum Gothic’s kits, plus struts and armour, plus the rather large cannon itself. There are some great details here, check out the cables, valves, and rivets on the part in the top left of the first photo below.
This was a simple and quick kit to assemble, and the finished product looks great. This Cannon would fit right into sci-fi wargames such as Warhammer 40k.
The Cannon can freely turn 360 degrees on its base, and this clever design from Quantum Gothic also includes a couple of static gears (second photo below) so that you can position the Cannon vertically too.
Here you can see the Cannon can be elevated between firing high into the sky, to a slight downward firing arc. Its simply held in these positions by friction on the teeth of those sculpted gears.
For scale, here is the Quantom Gothic Cannon along with a 28mm Space Marine miniature from Games Workshop. This would fit right into 40k and be a rather intimidating weapon!
Next up is the Radar/Comm Dish kit which is priced at £16.80 (around $26). The packaging contains the resin parts shown below, plus the documents and foam we saw with the Cannon.
Again the parts are both well cast and nicely detailed, we can see this kit uses the same base as the cannon we built earlier, but with a large radar or communications dish instead of a weapon.
Similar instructions are included with this kit as with the cannon.
The assembled Radar/Comm Dish looks great and just as with the cannon can be turned 360 degrees on its base and can be raised or lowered vertically.
Here is the Radar/Comm Dish with a 28mm Space Marine from Games Workshop for scale, this would make a good looking terrain piece, but also an objective to fight over in your games. In 40k there are rules for Comms Relays which this could represent nicely (re-roll Reserves rolls!).
The third Quantum Gothic kit we have is the Missile Launcher ‘Catalyst’ kit priced at £16.40 (around $25.50) which comes with the resin parts below, plus the documents we saw earlier.
Another kit using the same base, but this time we have a heavy looking missile turret. The pieces are all very well cast and have plenty of sharp details.
Once again Quantum Gothic have included some simple instructions for this kit.
The completed kit is a very serious looking missile launcher with the same beautiful styling we have seen across the other kits we’ve built today.
As with the other kits, this missile turret can turn a full 360 on its base and be raised and lowered vertically. Here you can see the Missile Launcher ‘Catalyst’ along with a 28mm Space Marine from Warhammer 40k.
And here are the 3 quantum Gothic kits together:
The style of these 3 kits is beautiful and will fit right into games like Warhmmer 40k and its sci-fi gothic theme. The level of detail is great, and every part was well cast, very little cleaning up or prep was needed before assembling each model. These will make great objectives to fight over in our games, or even just good-looking scenery for our battles. In games which include rules for communication relays and emplaced weapons, these can even become part of the battle itself.
