The audacity of the Kikaki Challenge made the Kumka Burrough re-think their displays of dominance. The lessons learned from that conflict were taken to their logical conclusion, and after ten years of development, the Tipaka was unveiled. This massive ship was a beacon of strength and power, and let the other kikoku nations know they could not challenge the Kumka Burrough financially or militarily.
Twenty-five years after construction, the great battleships were put to their first real test. In Patapsco, they were instrumental in protecting the evacuation of kikoku colonists as the human/jun-ila war of possession errupted around them. They also helped consolidate the kikoku holdings and protected them from being forcibly annexed by either of the sides.
- Note: Miniatures are supplied unpainted and unassembled. Paints, brushes, glue, etc. are not included. A photo of an assembled ship is provided with this listing for reference, but you'll need to put it together and paint it yourself.
- Basic metal stand pegs and plastic hex bases are included with all WHI miniatures. For size comparison purposes, stand bases are one inch across.
- For this particular ship, a second stand is included in case you find the ship unstable as presented; however, this will require some drilling as there is only one stand hole on the underside of the hull.
