    Cheers, old boy! Basic colours are on Banesword #1. Yes, I've got a bit bored of plain yellow. Transfers have been applied. I'll take it out and varnish them forthwith.

    Excellent name choice. The more colorful palette is nice also.

    Re: Too many tanks? Impossible!

    Cheers, fellas! It's quite impressive how many names one can make out of the GW superheavy transfer sheet. Obviously, it isn't great, and the fonts are neither interchangeable nor contain the whole alphabet, but one can find some things if one plugs away for a while. "Admiral Thrawn" will be a future name now I've found it can be knocked up from Dominator and Imperial Wrath.

    Re: Too many tanks? Impossible!

    I did a spot of targeted spraying of the Banesword's tracks. So they are now mostly black. But it'll be two-three hours before they're dry and I can proceed further. So for now onwards to Banesword #2. She has no sponsons, having replaced them with ERA for AV14. Her name will probably be Admiral Thrawn. See above.



    First job is finishing off the tracks, and then I'll move on to the ever fraught business of trying to line them up properly when gluing them to the main body!

    Re: Too many tanks? Impossible!

    Erm . . . well, in terms of completed ones, I've now got three Baneblades, a Shadowsword (and another some tracks of which I've mislaid temporarily), the construction vehicle-cum-Stormblade, the Monstrous Kindness . . . so this will be only the sixth finished one - unless I get distracted.

    I was looking at my plans last night, and found I'd made more bits and bobs than I had thought. The final structure should be this:

    Superheavy Tank Regiment:
    Command (Baneblade) Company: 3 Baneblades: Barry, St Dom,
    1st (Stormblade) Company: 3 Stormblades: Duke Don
    2nd (Shadowsword) Company: 3 Shadowswords: Sian (name needs applying),
    3rd (Banesword) Company: 3 Baneswords: Monstrous Kindness, Admiral Thrawn,
    4th (Macharius) Company: 3 Macharius variants: Molly (Vanquisher),
    5th (Stormsword) Company: 3 Stormswords

    So once Admiral Thrawn is done, I'll be about a third of the way through. Phew! I'm an idiot!

    We'll have to have a race against one another or something.

    Re: Too many tanks? Impossible!

    Right, she's really starting to come together with these colours.



    Meanwhile, Lego is helping to ensure the straight lines of her sister.





    Some slightly mangled tracks at the back there. The fault was (of course!) mine in failing to allow more room. I shall remember next time, unless I forget.

    @ MrP: God bless Lego, to be used for everything and everywere

    Sad about those tracks, theyll be a pain in the *u* to get right again.

    Nice progress, otherways.

    Love to race or something........the thing is just...............how ?

    Re: Too many tanks? Impossible!

    I guess we'd just keep a running total. Although perhaps for tank-aholics to do that is as unwise as alcoholics!

    A bit of a diversion from the Baneswords for a moment. I found a bit of 2mm plasticard in a draw, long since set aside to serve as the base for the fighting compartment of a Stormblade. I had the Lego out already, from working on the Baneswords, so I thought I'd knock up said fighting compartment. This thing's going to be pretty solid, I fancy! The pictures need no explanation for anyone who spent their childhood sticking these blocks together. I just knocked up a superstructure and am building a shell around it.

    @ MrP: Cheers, Mate ! (ill drink to that !)

    Good idea for a "jigg" youve made there. Stupid me for not thinking of using Lego, i allways use more plasticard

    Keep on building, Mate !

    Re: Too many tanks? Impossible!

    Cheers, old boy. I tried out another one with some different Lego bits. I'll take some pics later on. A considerable amount of progress on Banesword #2 today, given yesterday was a day when I got nothing done! She needs more rivets on the sides of the fighting compartment and some more detailing on the aft of same. She's almost ready to go undercoated.

    Ooh, you're probably right. I'll shrink #3's down a bit from that. Cheers, old man!

    I'm just off to undercoat her. She's had some rivets, a rear door, a place to install comms antennae, and a bit of plasticard on the central for'ard hull.

    Re: Too many tanks? Impossible!

    maybe you should stop making tanks and go over to the big side.

    leviathans, capitol imperialis,ordinatus or titan on tracks.

    i mean after all these tanks is their still any creativity left?
    maybe some bigger machines as a command centre for all this tanky goodness
    wanna see a superheavy army group with 20 baneblades and 5 heavy tanks???

    Re: Too many tanks? Impossible!

    EDIT: Scratchbuilt lascannon at the bottom of the preceding page.

    Another shape of turret one can make with Lego. Again, it's pretty obvious what I've done here. She's received rivets since this was taken, and I carefully drilled out gas escape holes around the gun's mouth. Later I had a look over some pictures of the FW Stormsword and realised that I haven't made this gun long enough! So I shall end up hiding them when I extend it. Shucks!

    You're a fiend, you know. Your persuasion pushed me into making these supers, but now you want me to make larger ones. ARGH!
