My WHFB Steam Tank

Postby G2 » Sat Jan 19, 2008 7:05 pm

For those of you play WHFB (Warhammer Fantasy Battle), I have made an Empire Steam Tank.

Has anyone else built any WHFB stuff?

looks good! but do you have an actual physical model of it?

and sadly (or perhaps fortunately) i've managed to avoid the money sinkhole that is Warhammer. legos are my most expensive hobby, and most of that was spent years and YEARS ago.

It's an awesome concept and an awesome design, but just out of curiosity, what happens when it gets up to the enemy fortifications? Does it just ram them, or are there soldiers inside?

Actually I have built two Steam Tanks in this design. Here is a Link:

Thank you, but it is not my own design, I just converted it into a Lego version from this.

I have never considered enemy fortifications, I have only really thought it being used against enemy troops in the field. And in that scenario it just ploughs over them, if it doesn't shoot at them first.

BAhahaha!
Not as detailed, but I'd count that as a worthy proxy.

Now do a Leman Russ!

The Lascannons are too small on the 'blade. Other than that the resemblance is striking.

It is indeed very good. Now all we have to do is build a minifig scale version.
