We’z been avin a beakie problem; Ya see it’s dat dang armor of derz we can’t get threw until we up close witch iz bad cause by den da beakies r lobbing bombs threw da tank’s windows. However Gazza recently looted an very killy humie tank and after seeing it melt sum beakies I told him to create sum for the grot rebellion”
I had planned to build a 2nd Manticore but my guard army is seriously lacking in long range Anti-Marine weapons, but after playing a few games with a leman russ executioner I discovered the joy of throwing down 5 plasma cannon templates a turn. But at the time I was using the imperial plasma weapons which just didn’t look grotty enough so I converted up a set of new weapons; behold ‘The Blasta Tank’
I was unsure how to paint the orbs at first, then I saw a episode of clone wars while visiting my family which featured this weapon. Using that as a reference I painted up the orbs and after two retries was happy with the result. I also added some small lighting effects, I also repainted ‘boom’ with ‘powa’.
And with that the grot rebellion with 71 infantry and 19 tanks is now complete and I’m eager to start my next project; The Shas’lu’kar.
