Making a Khornate super heavy
« on: March 22, 2009, 09:45:03 PM »
Im about done making my world eaters apocolyps worthy point wise (barely) I was thinking of making one of the two super heavy tanks since i recently have obtained a spare shadow sword chasie. any ides which Super heavy I should make? (i know one is only seen on GW's web site under the apoc. Data Sheets.) And what bits should I use to create such a thing Inspiration just isnt hitting me.

Baneblade chassis- the wheels / fenders on both sides.  The wheel / fender sides are the first things GW has you build up, you know, the sides where the sponsons go and that are eventually joined by the large bottom midsection.

Figure out how big you need the mortars to be and hen build the middle to fit.  You get to keep lots of good bits too :P.

I thought of using 4 basilisk platforms build up, and then linked up on a single platform would be the way to go.  You could cut the barrels to make them more mortar like.  You could have them a little offset with the wheel sides by having them mounted a little lower like the front portion of the shadowsword to give it more depth.  Have a bunch of mutants / traitor guard manning the guns / loading the guns and have a berserker with a whip in the back. = profit.

It's only Str 7 AP 4 Apoc (4) but it is super stying.  It is daemonic which helps a lot to keep it firing.

This is true. I have a spare Shadow Sword chasie to work with. But buying that many basies will be costly.

Rich- I cant afford 3 Basies like that thus my original comment.

Ian- Perhaps we can talk trades.

Even with those earth shakers im having a hard time envisioning what the final tank would look like. while having a tourtured crew sounds interesting its not blood for the blood god, they arnt dying! The rules say the tank has Deamonic posession so modeling a mortal crew manning the guns would also not work there.

Bloodletters manning the guns.  You could have the loader killing the guy firing.  ;D  I'll be at BG and maybe I can draw up what I mean. Although, I wonder if there is an epic model that has done this in the past you can look toward?


Also, if you are still undecided, this is another that looks pretty rad and would be super effective.  A bit more ambitious but it's even cooler and would help stand against titans.:

You could use the tank as a base and lots of plasticard to build it up.  All the extra gun bits to build up the guns and such.

You have so many super heavies. Compensating for something?  ::)

Besides obvious phallacies you are inferring, yes I am compensating.  Rob's titan legion scares the crap out of me and stompas ain't gonna gut it!
