Epic 30k Falchion Super Heavy Tanks

Falchion super heavy tanks - one for the XVI Legion and one for the VII - this should be a fun gun fight...

The build up for Prairiecon 2016 continues. I have always felt mayhem with super heavy tanks is an important ingredient in any game of Epic, so I want to be sure the game we are running this weekend in Brandon features the heavy tanks of the Space Marine Legions slugging it out on the table.  With this in mind I have finished a pair of Falchion super heavy tanks, one for each side that will be participating in the game on Sunday.

Heavy firepower for the Imperial Fists

There are many bonkers and beautiful super heavy tanks in the Horus Heresy, and the Falchion is right up there with the best of them.  Heavily armoured and equipped with some manner of doomsday-class laser weapon system as a main armament, it also has a pair of quad lascannon sponsons to deal with...deal with what? What is still alive after a good dose from that twin-whatever cannon? Who knows? I do so enjoy the excess of the Space Marine Legions and their equipment.

Elaborate Mechanicum gadgetry powering the deadly primary weapons...

Ready to defend the Emperor

Billed as a "tank destroyer" (certainly up for that job), these things will also be useful for putting really large holes in everything from fortifications to enemy Titans.  A nice tool for the kit of any discerning Legion Praetor.

Can you feel the hope?

Support Horus...or else...
As newly painted figures, what could possibly go wrong...? I look forward to their dominance of the table on Sunday morning.

Waiting to face the dupes of the so-called "Emperor"

I still have a few nights of last-minute-cramming-style painting to go, hopefully there will be more reinforcements before the weekend...

Wonderful work Greg! Your Epic stuff never failes to make me want to have a go myself...
But taking on Titans? With that poor an elevation for the gun, the only thing you can hope for is to burn a titans toes a bit... and therefore make him aware of where you are ;-)

I'm sure "burnt toes" are a major mechanincum problem...
