"Maisey," he said, "there is only one thing I can imagine you doing."
"Tanks?" I said.
"Tanks," he said.
So, I like tanks. They are fun to build, fun to paint and they make things go BOOM! Which is always satisfying. I have a few tanks. When I say a few I mean lots. Lots like fish in the sea lots.
In my last post I mentioned the urge to do a Chaos/Rebel Guard army. This going to let me have a lot of fun as both armies have the world of opportunity to convert everything, but I'll mostly focus on the tanks. The first tank I'm going to attempt is one from the Guard side of things and is going to be one of my all time favourites: the Demolisher.

As you can see below, I've tried to make each section of damage into a little vignette. Going clockwise from the top left: Attacking infantry have tried to shoot the crew hatch open to lob in a frag grenade. Desperate to slow the tank down troops have tried to focus fire onto the weaker armour around the engine block. The deep gouges along the side of sponson from where the tanks crew tried to force themselves down a narrow alleyway. Some sharpshooter has tried to pick off the tank's commander but only hit the turret.
Now the tank is ready for paint. However, I'll go through the details of painting this bad boy next time.
Until then, take it easy folks.
