3 posts in and already off topic. This is my Iron Warriors command tank, going to be a counts-as LR Prometheus (planning on using scions of iron rules). Chopped up an old plastic LR, I like the silhouette of the classic LR but wanted to beef it up some. Gave it flamer sponsons because I thought they were neat. Plow is from onslaught miniatures.
How I did the vanquisher turret: 1. lop off hatch cast on the turret, trying to preserve the rim detail 2. Drill hole 3. Take binocular fig with broken legs, file to fit, glue in 4. Took solid polystyrene rod of appropriate diameter, sanded the end into shape, then sliced it off. Made a hinge out of smaller gauge rod, filed flat on the surface where it attached to the turret 5. Glue a little nubbin on top for detail. With the way the trolls tanks were cast I couldn't really get the hatch off without destroying the detail, so I made a new one. Sanding down the end of the rod before cutting was the trick for me, otherwise it was to fiddly to handle.

Great conversion on the landraider, loving the evil ariel, and the other things going on add lots of good detail, look forward to seeing this painted ;)

Got the LR ready for weathering. The rivets are Grandt Line premade polystyrene.

The landraider looks stunning, probably the best conversion of a gw mk1 raider i have seen, very well done indeed ;) looks awesome, and just goes to show these old models can be made to look good with a little effort and time put into them ;)

Another command tank. Bought a lot of shadowswords off of ebay, don't know if they are forge world rejects or poor recasts, but at any rate the price was a little too good to be true. Since I had to fix all kinds of warping and lost detail I decided to make some nice gubbins while I was at it. This is the honored, revered, and ancient Shadowsword Queen Bitch. Rivets are provisionally penciled in for now, need to let this one breathe for a bit.

(I like asymmetry)
