|Urban re-development vehicle from the XII Legion|
A feature of Curt's Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge is a series of theme entries. Every two weeks or so the Challengers are encouraged to make a submission tied to a given theme, and you can score some extra bonus points (and even some hobby schwag from the sponsors). The themes can be interpreted quite liberally (the "spider precedent" lives on in the minds of many Challenge veterans :) but that is very helpful when you are looking to make a theme entry line up with a project you are trying to focus on.
|Some WIP photos...so...much...white|
|The nearly-finished stage...|
My starting-to-sprawl 30k collection features troops from four different legions at this point, but since I started into this several years ago, the Sons of Horus have somehow been the only ones to get any vehicles :) So even though I have about 50 World Eaters, they have to make every effort on the table so far without any armoured assistance. I doubt the chaps in the XVI Legion really care about that, but I felt it was time to give the World Eaters some armoured assistance...
|Love the bonkers shovel blade on the front of the tank|
What better vehicle for the hard fighting bunch in the XII Legion than a Vindicator? Heavily armoured, armed and equipped to support fighting amid fortifications and built-up areas with a brutally massive and short-ranged cannon? Angron is more about axes-to-the-face than tanks, but I expect this tank would find favour with him.
|Decals from Forge World's sheet were very useful|
|The tank commander is popped out for a look-see...probably enjoys seeing the effects of the direct hits from that cannon fist-hand...|
|Horus for hope!|
