    Leman Russ Vanquisher

    I have taken reference from Panzer IV tanks to build up this Leman Russ Vanquisher. It includes scratch built extra armour to both the hull and turret, whip aerials and air recognition flag.



    Comments particulaly welcome.

    Thanks

    I am not normally a fan of mixing modern warfare themes onto 40k models, but this one is very well done! Looks great.

    Looks great. The camo paint job with the extra bits lends it a certain presence to it.

    Well I think the painting and detail is really great, but I don't really see it fitting in any 40k army... Looks way too WW2 kinda thing.

    Thanks for the comments.

    I have painted lots of tanks but wanted to try something different. I have half a mind of entering the vehicle category for the UK Games Day and wanted something different that stood out/catched the judges eye.

    I see loads of tanks that are all a bit samey and freehand 'art work' to me does not fit with the idea of an Imperial Guard tank. Insted I went for the WWII theme.

    My question is should I enter it for the Golden Demon (honest answers please) or will the judges, as some of you have pointed out, react against the WWII theming?

    Any advice would be gratefully received.

    Thanks in anticipation,

    Steve Smith

    The camo and the ove rsized dozer really makes it look great. It reminds me of a WW2 tank for some reason, which I really like. :]

    I wouldn't change a thing, WWII or not it looks great and to me original. I would love to see the troops with the same type of brush/foliage on them too

    It is based on a German Panzer IV tank. It was one of the only tanks to feature extra armour to both the hull and turret. The aim was so that shells would detonate against the armour before reaching the tank itself. The solid plates were later altered to wire mesh, which you can still see on modern tanks and combat vehicles in Afghanistan.

    I am perhaps leaning towards entering it.
