Not something I felt fitted. Thing is the vidicator is firing a demolisher cannon, where all the fumes would end up in the crew compartment, and so needs to be vented. This is a mortar, with an open-topped firing area. So there would be no need to vent gasses. Thanks for the suggestion though.

Icidentally, anyone know where I can get hold of more khorne icons? I've run out and eba is not producing anything ueful.

www.bitsandkits.co.uk or a quick google for ''khorne bits'' might show some hits

i like your Doom blaster. It looks a little too neat for a chaos tank if you ask me (all is practically symmetrical, including those trophy racks I'd change that ;) )

Thanks.

I see what you mean about the neatness. I may try breaking off some spikes. I'm going to try to make the side look a bit different to each other by using chains etc. from the spikey sprue.

It's been a while since I updated this, sorry! I've finished building the doomblaster (finally). I've got an album on photobucket here:

http://s291.photobucket.com/albums/l...r%20completed/

I doubt it will get painted for a while, as I have around 25 zerkers to finish, and am trying to work out my lord conversion.

Hope you like it and thanks to everyone for suggestions.

Very nice conversion. As was mentioned, the space for the gun carriage could be used for something. Barbie heads maybe? But yeah, the only critique of it would be that in the end it definately needs more skulls and blood. The actual model I believe has so many skulls on it that I probably wouldn't buy it because of the fact all the rest of my time for all eternity would be spent painting a mountain of little tiny skulls.

"There is a cancer eating at the Imperium. With each decade it advances deeper, leaving drained, dead worlds in its wake. This horror, this abomination, has though and purpose which functions on an unimaginable, galactic scale and all we can do is try to stop the swarms of bio-engineered monsters it unleashes upon us by instinct. We have given the horror a name to salve our fears; we call it the Tyranid race, but if it is aware of us at all, it must know us only as Prey."

Looking good, it definitely has a decent size. Any thought on how you or as what you'll be using it in games?

Currently working on CSM (IW, Purge and Traitor Guard), Tyranids, Astronomican's Datasheet project....and oh yeah my thesis project

The conversion looks good but to much like the rhinos you based it off of. I knnow you said it was complete but maybe there is some room for tinkering. I would make is so the tracks met and went in one large circle instead of in sections., I would remove the front hatches, something about those makes the model look ackward on that, maybe it is because it lends to the fact that it is nothing but a large rhino. Lastly I would put something to fill the gap you have between the two chassis, to once again streamline the body.

hephesto, I'll be using it as a doomblaster in apoc games. Outside of that, prob won't get used. If I do, probrably remove the guns and use it as an extra rhino.

djinn24, thanks for the tips. It looks a bit disjointed, because I had to use clear plasticard. I may fiddle some more, it depends how much time I have really.
