    Thank you!

    The Russ Annihilator is done:









    As mentioned, it also works as a Battlecannon Russ:





    I'm quite happy with how the stowage frame came out. It gives the turret a longer, more balanced shape, I think.

    The whole package, sans Lascannon and Heavy Bolters:

    Thank you! "Nam" is indeed the look I was going for. My favorite tank commander mini is the old metal Exterminator one, so I used a Valkyrie crew head on a Heavy Weapons crew body to emulate that style.

    Re: Ace XT's Catachans (not really a log)

    Since I'm building too many armies at once, there's a bit of a down period in between Catachan updates. Now that my Dark Angels and AdMech have had their turn, here's my next project.

    A bit of backstory: Many years ago, I scratchbuilt a Salamander Scout from a Basilisk kit and made an Earthshaker platform from the leftover gun. That Earthshaker never saw battle, though, and spent the last ten years in storage. With arty platforms being nerfed into the ground, I figured it's time to dig it out and turn it into a Basilisk variant. Without a spare Chimera chassis, I got an Ursus tractor from Puppetswar and cut down the Earthshaker base and shield to fit.



    I also had to make a roof from plasticard and add some bits and rivets to complete the Imperial look. The Ursus is pretty decent for the price, slightly longer than a Chimera, and the tracks and sides are very much 40K Imperium style. The fit was a bit lacking, but for the price I'm not complaining.
