What started as a blog about playing 40k with Space Wolves is now more of a journal about tabletop gaming in general. Gameplay, games news, unboxings and paint guides - its all fair, well, game. It is not the heaviest of heavies. Its slightly smaller and less expensive, both in points and currency, than a Cobra. But it still packs a mean punch, with a choice of either a two-shot Destroyer cannon or an apocalyptic template D-weapon.
It only has two structure points, but its Titan holo-fields give it a decent Invulnerable or Cover Save each time it moves. Turns out, pretty easy. Its a nice straightforward kit with a minimum of parts, most of which are easily removed from their sprues.
Also note this is the Pulsar version of the Lynx. Construction for the Sonic Lance version might vary, but likely only in the shape of a couple of the components. And clearly some of the parts are likely to be warped. Boiled water does the job of straightening out things like the cannon barrel and wing tips, so no big deal. Its three large chunks of resin and they all slot together nicely. When you glue the engines on though, the two long ones go in the inside positions on each side, the shorter ones on the outside.
There are tabs at the base of the engine components to guide their alignment, though you may need to trim them a little for a smooth fit. You can see the shorter piece goes to the front, the longer at the rear. The main weapon comes in two parts. A power plant type thingy for the back end. Again, there is a tab that may need trimming. And the main pulsar barrel at the front. Another tab to make sure it is aligned properly. There are two long and two short.
I prefer to just stick mine on like the ones on the Forge World site though, so its the long ones in the middle and the short ones on the outside surfaces. Make no mistake though; these vanes are tied for worst part of this whole kit. As they are resin, they are almost guaranteed to be warped when you get them and furthermore brittle and incredibly prone to snapping. I mean really prone to snap. Its going to make transporting this thing a pain in the bum, : So be very very careful with them, or use spare plastic ones if you have them.
The only part of the kit that rivals the vanes in the Bad Design awards has to be the stand. For this large chunk of expensive resin you get: a standard 40mm flying base. There is a hole drilled in the base of the tank, but if you insert the stand into it the tank does not balance and just lists to one side. Maybe I got unlucky and got a Lynx with an over-drilled hole, but I doubt it. I have instead magnetised the base and the stand so its now nice and solidly attached. Thats it for the construction.
I forgot to take a picture of the secondary weapon mount, but its fairly obvious where it attaches below the cockpit. Next: the painted model and battle report. Posted by.
Oh, by the way: did I forget to mention every HQ can take it? Your baron that was gonna join the jetbikes to do nothing can now tank some damage. Also get rerolls of the failed invuln saves after deepstriking. Unfortunately taken from the Any Other Faction table.

I noticed that the port-side prong was a bit stunted, so I extended it with plasticard and White Milliput to match the shape of the other one. Underside shot of the repaired port-side prong. Some gap-filling was needed on the underside to blend the component pieces together. The engine cowlings on the Lynx are normally quite thick - using a file and sandpaper I was able to make them much thinner and more delicate. The secondary weapon mount under the cockpit has been magnetised.
