    Vanquisher Turret

    Where would one find the Vanquisher turret? Does it come in the Leman Russ box? I own a few Russes and bought them back in the day, so I wouldn't know. Had an idea about Pask in a Vanquisher for high-profile targets, and was wondering where I could get one.

    I'm pretty sure that right now you can only get a Vanquisher from Forge World. As it stands, the Demolisher kit comes with parts for a Demolisher, a Punisher, or an Executioner, the Leman Russ kit is just a Leman Russ, and my guess is that they'll release another plastic kit with parts for an Exterminator, a Vanguisher, or an Eradicator.

    However, I would buy a Leman Russ kit and make a turret extension with green stuff.

    Aye. At the moment Forge World are your only here. They do do two Turrets for the Vanquisher so you've got a bit of choice. Forge World IMPERIAL GUARD TANKS

    You can always just get some plastic tubing and extend the barrel of the normal Russ turret. It's alot cheaper and I can't think of anyone that would complain.

    I used the body of a Bic pen.

    Clipping the tip of a battle cannon off and using the pen as a spacer between the tip of the cannon and the base of the cannon made for a quick, easy, conversion.

    I hope the last 3 variants come in a package soon, like the demolisher kit.

    Forgeworld will also sell you the turret and plastic tank kit together and when you buy them this way it costs a lot less.

    Just get a normal russ and extend the barrel, a pen should work nicely.

    what worked perfectly for me was:
    sawed the barrel of a battle cannon between the base and the end, it is split into roughly 3 sectioins and took out the middle.
    then i took, 3/8" wood dowel i think, addn put masking tape to widen the ends that would fit into the base and the end of the new barrel.
    This worked perfect, it would be the same with the bic pen as well.

    if your building a tank column, you could buy a basilisk kit and a russ kit, chop off the barrell of the earthshaker cannon and use it as the russ turret to make a vanquisher, then use the basilisk without the barrell as a griffin mortar, colossus or medusa... then you get two nice looking models that you would otherwise have to go to forgeworld to get.
