Leman Russ Vanquisher WIP

Well, I may have been distracted by my recent project for little man's school but I have managed to get some work done on my Guard. Here's the latest addition for 152 Armoured Assault Company, a Vanquisher.

I picked up some FW turrets when I was at Warhammer World back in May. The hull was a trade with a friend, it needed quite a bit of work as it was badly put together, but it should be fine once it's painted up. A quick word about the FW turrets, the notch that fits into the russ hull is smaller than the hole, so I added a couple of strips of thin plasticard to widen it a little. The green stuff is just to keep the turret level as the cannon forced it to tilt forwards a little.

I'm also working on a few models to finish the company command squad. I'm trying to tie up as many units as possible so I can get stuck into my veteran platoon, hopefully, it won't take to long as I only have 6 heavy weapons teams and a ten man squad to finish 2nd platoon, making it a full platoon with over 100 models.

More coming soon.

Very cool, Corbane - the Vanquisher is a great tank, and it strikes fear into my opponents every time I field one. "What's that? Average armor penatration of a 15? Hole a Land Raider lengthwise without breaking a sweat? Yes please!"

Can't wait to see it painted up - your army keeps getting cooler!

Like you I have also purchased the Vanquisher turret and the Mars Pattern Hull. I have yet to receive it however. Damn mail...

What are using to hold the tread piece in place? Some kind of wire?

Looks to paint!

I'm not a Vanquisher fan rules wise, but you've done the model justice :D

Thanks guys.

@Hessler - it's a bit of paperclip mate
