Leman Russ MBT by CommissarKinyaf Leman Russ MBT by CommissarKinyaf
I kept telling myself to draw some Warhammer 40k fanart, then says they might be starting up a contest soon, and I figured, what the hell? This took a hell of a long time, but I'm happy with the result. Still can't believe this is my first Leman Russ centered drawing on Devart.

Boom.

Art is Me
Leman Russ MBT and the Death Korps of Krieg are Games Workshop

They can have that effect you know. Although if you're tight on money I'd caution against it. An Imperial Guard army can field more infantry with a bare minimum Force Organization Chart than a Space Marine Army can field with a fully maxed out Force Org. Chart.

Infantry Sea, I tell you.

I think that's what makes them appealing to me though. Both for gaming, and on the hobby side of things. I've come to the conlusion that it's far better to have 50 shitty guys, than 7 elite awesome guys. I also like buying my army over time. The fact that you can field a frickin hueg like Xbox army means I can keep buying shit and not go over the limit.

Oh, and you have to explain the troop thing to me, because from the looks of it, it seems like you can have 50 guys count as one troop choice for like 60 points. (I've only been able to glance at the codex.)

... that's just disgusting but beautiful all at the same time.

My Tyranid friend has been kicking everyone's ass so far, and in all honesty, it seems like the best strategy against him is to straight up outnumber him like 3:1.

Nice :D which reminds me to finish painting my own tank..... <sigh>

from what the men wear, It kinda reminds me of the world of Armageddon.... and the Armageddon steel legion..... so many gas masks, because the air on Armageddon is a little unhealthy.....

"Load High Explosive! Target, 84 degrees, 300 meters... FIRE!" *There is a distant explosion which is soon followed by a shower of Chaos Marine torsos and limbs.*

Ahhh... The Leman Russ is such a great tank. :heart:

I love the support weapon those guardsmen are using in the background: A Sentinel... The only Fast Attack choice worth taking (next to Forgeworld of course) :P

Yup. I do love Sentinels. Dirt cheap, many flavors, and can fill in the gaps in just about any problem that can occur. Plus, you can have like... 12 of the things in one company.

*hypocricy to its highest level* the Adeptus Asartes may be the most powerful warriors of the imperium but they are not the bravest, the Guard are the bravest, they go to war armed only with their trusy lasrifle, it may not be as powerful as a bolter but when faced with countless hordes of xenos/chaos/tratiors/etc/etc you would rather have a lasrifle then a stick, when a space marine kills fifty enemies no one gives a damn, but when a solitary guardsman/woman kills fifty enemies they renowned for their courage and steel, so as i have just proven GUARD ROCK, and also, its strength in numbers *the hypocricy being i own an Ultramarines army, but im starting a Guard Army*

Hey, don't use logic! I can't compete with that.

My only defense against well thought out . . . thoughts, is to retaliate with rampant fanboyism.

Nothing like mobile artillary to brighten up an ork's day; quite literally too :D

I'll need to find time to work on it some more... Can't do it for this quarter's independant project (needs to be something different each quarter, and this is too similar to the vodnik. That, and we're starting the main project of the year so this quarter's independant will have to take less time), so I might try and finish it at home. Need to see if the versions are compatible...

I also need to post a scan of the WIP. I keep wondering if the engravings on part of the barrel are a little too much for the Imperial Guard...

:iconcommissarkinyaf:

Engravings are good for the more royal imperial guard units. Your normal footsloggers however will stick with a clean barrel.

Good to know - I think I'll move the engraving to another layer so it can be turned on or off. That way I can have a Standard issue and Royal/engraved version. :)
