I'm building an Imperial Guard army, but am not that keen on the Leman Russ model. I just don't like the rhomboid, World War One look of the GW model.
I've been thinking about using an alternative, like a 1/48 WWII German tank model for example...my other alternative is scratchbuilding a new chassis, something like a scaled-down Baneblade.
Does anyone have any suggestions for conversions or alternatives?
Inspired by a post on another gaming-related forum I visit, I'm building my Russes backwards. I saw the following picture, and decided that it made for a much better model.
For the extra section on the front I used milliput, although you could equally use Plasticard.
If I get around to digging out my digital camera, I'll post a short tutorial here in the modelling section, including both the backwards-ness and the modifications to the tracks I've made. (Long story short - I've cut away the skirts and built up some basic suspension.)

Those reversed Leman Russ tanks are very well done, reppy for the person who did them. If you want to improve or change your Leman Russes then you could try having a poke in Forge world's Guard section. They seem to have some new turrets and upgrade parts for the Leman Russ which could help to improve and or change it's appearance. Linky= Forge World IMPERIAL GUARD TANKS
