Speedpainting Space Marines #5 - Predator Tank (WIP)

Hey guys!

I hope you had nice holidays. Here are some pics of my predator tank. I decided to go for the max-out on lascannons option, to make him as big a threat as possible to ennemy armour (this made the most sense to an utter 40K noob like me).

It does come in cheaper than a devastator squad and he can move and shoot, which should be a plus.


I chose not to put an entry/exit point on top of the turret, but instead put a missile there, because the geometry of the turret is so awkward that no human being with an intact spine could squeeze through (as GW would have us believe).



Why WIP? Because the lights are still missing.

hehe, thanks Pablo :)

Of course my remark was tongue-in-cheek. Criticising the realism (and lack thereof) in the 40K universe would be useless. It is a space fantasy setting (which is very different from Sci-Fi for me) that never claimed to be in any way scientifically plausible (at least I hope).

I'm glad you like the model though.
More to come soon!

Cheers!
