Tango Prime: Octopad


"Tango 571, you are cleared for landing. Be advised the ‘package' is very concerned you have sufficient champagne and cigars to get him through this inspection trip." With that and a grimace, Sgt Mason clicked off and watched the little THUNDERBIRD light its vertical lift engines and begin the descent toward her landing pad. She would be well-rid of diva General Sullivan in just a few minutes. Let him go pester other people with his stupid questions and silly demands. Coyote or general's aide, she didn't care; God, she needed to kill something. 

Finger and Toe Models announce its latest release, OCTOPAD, a 28mm sci-fi landing pad for your VTOL . . . and if you don't have a VTOL handy to support your troops, OCTOPAD includes the THUNDERBIRD assault transport, small, but perfect for those spec-ops teams (or for your general's ego need for a cool ride).  While OCTOPAD is an expansion for our TANGO PRIME science fiction base sets, TANGO PRIME isn't needed.  OCTOPAD stands by itself.

OCTOPAD stands about two inches tall and comes with the parts to make either a eight inch wide or a massive twelve-inch wide platform. The THUNDERBIRD is a little under two inches tall and four and a half long. There are extra page of bits for kit-bashing .

Like all Finger and Toe models, OCTOPAD comes with SMOOSH ASSURANCE: if your gamer friends smoosh your model, just print up a new one. No waiting for a fifty dollar model to come in the mail. Just a little ink, a few sheets of card stock, some glue, and a refreshing beverage while you cut and glue!

OCTOPAD is available for $4.00 exclusively at and

Finger and Toe's motto, "Because they don't cost you an arm and a leg," explains the company's philosophy: affordable scenery and model sets for wargamers. Visit the website, look around, have fun. If you like what you see, try our other products at RPGNOW or Wargames Vault.

great little landing pad. it works well for minis and also worked great as a mini rc helicopter landing pad. i would suggest though, completly building the feet for the pad before attaching them to the pad. it did wonders the second time around. [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
