Hi there,

I am making a Dark mechanicus doubles army with my friend, I will be using the guard codex and he the chaos marines codex

for the leman russ I decided the normal build was boring, so between us, me and Riandro converted it into a more destroyer tank hunter/thunderer siege tank style.









the main weapon was also magnetised to allow me to use any of the options in the box





and the freehand cogs





and some pics of the sentinel







please bear in mind both these are still very much WIP, still quite a bit of work to go on them before they will be complete

cheers

Looking good so far I must say. You do however need better lighting for your pics so we can truly take in the details :)

That looks cool...I have 2 DTH models and they're a great kit.

I do love my Modified Ryza Turrets though, so I will stick to those.

Kudos though..that Exey is sexy, and they do have the arcane look the Dark Mecxhanicus should have.

after I have finished my half of the doubles list I am going to expand my army to 1500 points minimum so I may include some more leman russ varients, in which case i will make a tutorial. Unfortunatly I didn't take any photos at the making stage.

thankyou, I shall hopefully get some pictures using my friends lighting box, but i expect i will only do that once it is completed.

I do love the detroyer too, If they were in the guard codex I would have bought one, I was thinking of converting one from the standar leman russ kit using the vanquisher cannon, that way you can use it as either and you get a hull mounted weapon (which i belive the destroyer doesn't get, not sure about the sponsons).

I agree with you on the Modified Ryza pattern turrets, they have a certain attraction to them that the normal battlecannon seems to lack

I'm not sure whether i should add something else to the top of the tank, or whether it is enough as it is

thanks again for the comments

cheers

As I've probably said, Edd (Nice rhyming, no?:biggrin:) I'm seriously impressed by both the converting and painting quality of your project. The Leman Russ is by far the jewel in the crown, however. The placement of the... Plasma Executioner? Low down, near the front of the vehicle, not only makes it more unique, but fits in well to a sort of ''Line breaker'' theme. The Mechanicum sigil, the cog, painted (freehand I might add) onto the flanks, is superb too. To be honest, I think the project (and Rob's spray gun) have really enhanced your painting skills :victory:

I'd suggest chaos the pattern smoke launcher set up top. Just to add a tiny bit more to the profile. I would place them on the main hull intersecting the chamfered edges (top view). I think that a bit of pasticard accenting the rear angle of the launchers to continue that of the back tracks could really add the the forward-leaning, aggressive-assaultive feeling the conversion has.

I really like the tank, it looks sweet. The sentinel is looking good too, but I must say I don't like the look of the mouth on it at all. I think that would only work if the rest of the vehicle was a colour other than red, but being it all red the mouth looks like just some lines. I'd get rid of that, or paint the inside of the mouth in a different colour.

These look awesome! The only problem I can see with this though is if you're going into a tournament, because of the way you placed the guns they probably won't be considered turret-mounted anymore.

Have some +rep, if it lets me.
