On this particular Black Legion monograph there was still one thing missing. Tanks!
My style has (fortunately) evolved with years. One of my first tanks for this army was this horrendous Predator Tank:
The only remarkably funny thing about this tank is the system for the side weapons. I just built cages to fit in both sides with plastic sprues and some kind of mosquito net. There is a Marine gunner in each cage. Yeah, of course it's grotty, I know. I just can say I built it looong years ago. I think the concept is still useful, but if I were going to do this again I would try anything different in order to give it a better looking final aspect.
Anyway, this wasn't the main tank I wanted to show you, it just happened that I found that photo and it occured to me that I could share it. All the evolution thing I was saying refers to this other tank, an ancient Mk.I Land Raider:
Pretty old model that I repainted following the scheme that I was talking about the other day. Just black and yellow, nothing about golden trims, spikes or anything like that.
Though the current GW model is far better than this old one (its lines, details, everything), it still has "something" that appeals me. I curiously find this tank beautiful. No doubt it's again plain nostalgia, but I cannot avoid it. It reminds me when I discovered the game and its rough lines and setting, long time ago.
I've tried my best to keep it in good shape and to bring in the golden aura of those old days. This model still gets that impression.
BTW, in case you're asking, no, I didn't sell this one with the rest of the army, I couldn't do it. It's still at home awaiting its moment to come back to a table. Anytime, my precioussss, anytime...
