I play AC and I wanted a command tank that just.... well, just looked awsome.
I used a converted leman russ to create a vanquisher (used a bic ballpoint pen to elongate the barrel). Then I cut the back portion off of the hull and covered it with plasticard. I added two vents from the leman russ kit and a engine cover from a tamaya armored car. I used the old school hunter killer missile launcher, rough terrain mod, and spotlight as well. I then proceeded to cover the vehicle in purity seals, skulls, wings, space marine imperial accessories and so on. I have now begun to paint the entire thing shining gold.
My intention is to get the look of the Emporor's golden armor, but on a tank. It looks very nice now, but it takes like 10 layers of shining gold to look right.
How have you customized your IG commanders?
My blast template of S10 AP2 will toast all terminators.
Since i play a IG that is called the Romanus 14th Legion my commander is wearing an Roman helmet with the red hairs on the helmet. Since you mentioned tanks i made a pole like the ones you see the roman barriers carry into battle on my tank, gold with the imperium symbol at the top of the poll.

I'm doing a Leman Russ for a friend and his 108th Free Worlders (formerly the "108th L33T QRU3").
Standing on the back of the Leman Russ is a "life size" (mini-size) gold statue of the Lord General Jack "Roxxors your Boxxors" Daniels, (who's got more than a little bit of an ego problem).
There's so many cool bits on that tank that my friend and I have started calling it the "Excessive" instead of the "Excelsior", which was the originally planned name.

Mine has a storm bolter.
Also, I have the female Catachan grenade launcher wielding models. Seeing as how they are the only females in the Company, a lecherous Colonel like Col. Bud Jenkins would make sure they were in his retinue. So, Col. Bud has himself and 4 Grenade Wielding women in his retinue.
Most people who've played my army more than once make it a point to kill him, because I talk so much crap about his squad (which of course I realize is not that great). They get great joy out of blasting the hell out of him and his "harem".
I always say, "Col. Bud protects his womens"
PS: I realize that is poor English. I figured I mentioned that before someone threw a grammer book at me.
Emperor have mercy on those who stand against me, for I shall not.
put in awesome tank crew from forgeworld!

My IG commander is the old tank commander on the vehicle accessory sprue standing legs. The legs need to be trimmed or he will have two waists though :pLecherousOriginally Posted by jancz

- A player is a U.S. based slang term for an individual who is plays the field and has multiple active sexual relationships simultaneously. Sometimes spelled as "playa" in the context of hip-hop culture.
They are quite different, though related, and I think using a word that's actually is in the dictionary is probably a good choice
Anyone who's read my other thread will have already seen it (and if they haven't please do), but here's my commander:
I made several mods to this command tank, the commander himself is actually General Grizmund from Forgeworld. I also have the Forgeworld Improved Comms on the back. The tank has 'anti-tank rounds' represented by the Demolisher Plates on the side of the turret, and I green stuffed grooves on the barrel. I'm not sure about those grooves now, I'm thinking of removing them. It also has some packs and rolls my friend had going spare. He also had Plasma Cannon Sponsons if you look.
All it needs now is a going over with my 'Desert' cam scheme, and we're done.
