Post by Centurion13 »

This is an 85 ton tank moving at 3/5 with sixteen tons of armor.

The warload is as follows:

2 Defiance Cyclone Ultra AC/10s
2 Defiance Model XII ER Medium Lasers
2 Defiance TrakShot II Streak SRM-4s

It also featurs CASE and ECM.

Looking good, no?

This screams urban assault tank. Excellent work, as always.

That screams "Paint me in wild colors, slap some big numbers on, and drive me very fast in a left-handed circle".

SCH_WEET tank!

Actually, if the turret were fixed forward, I'm thinking Tank Destroyer. That beautifully sloped glacis and the exceptionally small turret scream "Land shark!" to me.

You know, when I first saw the drawing, there was this vague feeling of recognition. After thinking about it, I've decided it reminds me of the Space Marine assault vehicle from Aliens.

A good looking design. I would have changed out the Ultras for RACs though.

Actually, it reminds me of tracked version of Batman's ride in the first Christian Bale movie.

I don't remember ever having seen that Aliens toy. I do know this much, though... If the new minis for this TRO look as good as the drawings, I'll be going back on m vow not to buy any more.

I heartily wish I could provide miniatures for this TRO, but I will count myself fortunate if I can manage paper copies for the people who have contributed art, time and money.
