Leviathan heavy tank by Durnstaros Leviathan heavy tank by Durnstaros
Heavy breakthrough tank from the Ylmaharian trench legions (legion reserves).

A bit of an old build which shows on the paintwork and the slight lack of details and finish on the main hull, but still a pretty good tank that reminds me of Red Alert.
The turret in particular took a long time to build, actually three layers of turrets outside each other on top of the tiny one that came with the kit. Took a while before I was pleased with the design...
Oh, and the original kit was a tamiya Churchill 1:35, but only the track units are left now.

Awesome. What are the pointy things on the turret rear? Water tanks or other fluid containers? Surface-to-air missile launchers, spigot mortars, or similar weapon?

Ah, no those are just two spare shells, sitting loose in a bin.

Very, very bad idea- attacks from above, e.g., an airbursting artillery shell, may possibly detonate the exposed shells and cause catastrophic damage to the tank, considering the armor is usually thinner at the rear.

I just threw them in because I had them.

I apologize for being overly critical, but as a former US Army serviceman who's studied military history and technology since childhood, I tend to judge fictional militaries and their weapons by real-world standards.

No offense taken. This was one of my very first conversions, and I still find it odd that people like it.

Thanks. A lot of people seem to like this one, despite being one of my earliest and crudest conversions.

That's a pretty old model, going to get it repainted. Don't forget to check through my scraps gallery for unfinished models.

Sweet, a small mini version of the Ratte, based on the Churchill chassis

I was actually copying the ForgeWorld design for a 'light' superheavy, but a Ratte works too. :)

I see... are those things on the corners of the turret smoke-grenade launchers?

They're actually the standard spacemarine smoke launchers.. Very badly molded things, so I avoid them these days.
