    No it's it, just take a closer look at the tank and you'll see the difference.

    firstly it uses the chassis of the gorgon which is smaller than that of the BB, second it has fewer weapons.
    It's the Macharius the tank that goes between the leman russ and the baneblade.

    Indeed it is. Several of them were on display at the FW Open Day today. It's not as big as a Baneblade but it about twice to three times the size of a Leman Russ.

    Also on display was the Malcodon tank. Inspiration for this seems have been drawn heavily from the tanks used in WW1. Described as "a sort of rolling bunker" it seems to be rather heavily decked out. A Demolisher cannon provides frontal firepower, heavy flamer sponsons covers the sides and no less that four heavy bolters cover all four corners and all angles inbetween.

    The Death Riders are awesome looking models, these have been very well done.

    When asked about the plastic Baneblade, the FW staff made some shifty eye movements and replied "I can't say."

    Apart from the two tanks and the Death Riders, there wasn't much new stuff. Imperial Armour V does however look to be a fairly hefty book and it seems that it will be the Death Korps of Krieg and the Dark Angels on one side, and Chaos on the other.

    Do Space Marines really need MORE codices? =P

    I think the major strong point for IG is their tanks, so why not let them have more?

    Back on topic, the cover looks awesome... Any guesses as to what weapons that tank will have? Looks like a Twin-linked battlecannon, 2 heavy bolters sponsons and a hull mounted twin-linked heavy stubber... Those DKoK, they really love their stubbers somethin' fierce.

    Seems that way, the three models on display all had the same setup. I have a feeling though those turret guns may be twin-linked Conqueror cannons.

    nope, they are standard battle cannons, and they're NOT twin-linked.

    They CAN, however, be upgraded to Vanquisher cannons!!!

    [rant]Enough with the tanks! Give us some bleepin' Cadian Roughriders! I will sell my kidney just to buy some good looking rough riders, but yet they keep making dozens of varients of tanks that I will never buy (infantry for the win!)
    [/rant]

    I do have to admit thats a neat looking tank, that might nicely fit in between the Leman and the Baneblade for power. I look forward to bogging it down with conscripts soon.

    Finally fixed the link!
