Drop pods tend to, well, drop . . . then just sit there collecting dust and mud. You want yours to do more-why can't they take the fight to the enemy as well? Finger and Toe has the perfect solution: the MANTIS family of drop pod vehicles. Orbit to active combat in twenty minutes or less, bringing new meaning to death from above.

Finger and Toe Models announce its latest release, MANTIS, a squad drop pod designed for 28mm skirmish wargaming with any gaming system or rules. MANTIS comes in many versions: the basic armored personnel carrier (closed or open-topped), a fire support version that can take on any heavy tank on the battlefield, a command vehicle, a medevac, an urban assault support version, a vertical launch version for indirect fire support, a mortar carrier. There's an extra page of bits for kit-bashing and a host of options. MANTIS comes in six color schemes each with unique markings based on actual American and Russian aircraft.

MANTIS stands about two inches tall, a little over five inches long, and four inches wide (with optional shield generators).

Like all Finger and Toe models, MANTIS 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!

MANTIS is available for $6.00 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.

This is a must have for any SciFi RPG campaign. It really works well with some of the other FTM products such as the TAC Bumblebee. One of the best features is the interior included for the open top apc. Perfect for Player characters to hop in. Also, [...]

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.
