This Badger variant is specific to the Bear Legion and is an unofficial customization not sanction by Lynchstar Motors. The "BL" variant Badger swaps out the more common surface-to-surface missile launcher with one of the Legion's preferred weapons - the Hail Storm Cannon.
Capable of launching a variety of target-specific 40mm smart projectiles, the Hail Storm is as versatile as it is deadly. The smooth-bore design means the cannon is accurate at relatively short range, but that compliments the Bear Legion's aggressive ambush style of attack.
Legion Badgers are also tasked with running interference and harassing pursuing forces after a raid. Legion pilots typically equip their vehicles with pursuit deterrent systems like friction-less polymer slicks, napalm traps, corrosive gas clouds and kinetic energy absorbing fluids all aimed at hampering unwanted followers.

Badger Trike with Hail Storm Cannon (Bear Legion)
Due to the casting process resin models require clean up before assembly or painting is attempted. Resin casts require a mold release agent which is greasy and can hinder glue bonds and prevent paint from adhering to a model's surface. To ensure ease of assembly and painting please wash all resin pieces in warm, soapy water and rinse thoroughly.
Some mold release is particularly stubborn to remove and requires soaking the models in the soapy water solution for an hour or more. After soaking, rinse the models well and let them air dry before attempting assembly. Household dish detergent works well for washing resin and is generally cheap and easy to find!
Resin models are suited for advanced modelers.
While curing, resin models may retain small air bubbles or imperfections which require clean-up before painting.
To fill small holes use modeling putty - most game and hobby shops have some kind of 2-part epoxy putty available for purchase.
Mold lines or other raised imperfections should be removed with either a sharp hobby knife or sanded.
Please use caution when using any hobby knives and remember to cut away from your body.
When sanding resin be sure to wear protective coverings for your mouth, nose and eyes as resin dust can be harmful if inhaled. Also, always sand your models in well ventilated or outdoor areas and take caution to contain any dust while cleaning up your workspace and tools afterward.
