Tanks...Sadoukad Style

Presented here for your review are 3 additions to the armored forces of Battlegroup Sadoukad.

First up is simple, yet deadly Leman Russ Battle Tank. It's the first tank I have put together in a while so I went with the straight forward build and added some bits & bobs after its completion. Anyways, pics...

Next up is a LR Executioner. While I will always keep the main weapon as it is, I like the fact that I can interchange the front and sponson weapons as I see fit. I have magnetized the sponsons on this tank and I will be doing the same for all of my tanks in the future, as well. The new kit makes this easier as the side doors are almost flush with the side of the tank.

Last up is the command tank. It's meant to be a modified Land Raider chassis with a Leman Russ weapons loadout. The larger hull allows for the commander to coordinate the operations of his tanks and supporting troops. Because of the extra space needed for logistical equipment, the tank still only supports the LR Battlecannon and a forward heavy bolter turret.

As usual C&C is appreciated. These will get primed tomorrow and then I can finally bust out my airbrush and put it through its paces. Sorry for the long post but I have been stingy with the updates lately and I felt it needed to be done.

The war goes on,

No need to apologise for the long post - I love them.

These models look really nice - the LR especially, though I can but feel that the turret is looking the wrong way - it kinda looks like it would tip forward if you break too hard... :D

Can't wait to see them painted!

The LR is excellent, where did you get the stowage from?

Col. Hessler said...

Most of the extra stowage come from Tamiya 1/35 Modern U.S. Military Equipment Set. I believe the kit number is #310766.
