Well shit. This thing doesn't even need weapons, it can just thunder over everything.

Thanks for all the praise people! I am glad you like it as much as i do.

@Natalya: I do not agree with you. Maybe it is the black that makes them look wrong to you? Even with another design i don't really want to shorten those guns because i wanted some regular sized tank guns for tough targets that are not so easy to hit with the main guns.

@Halo3000: It did take a lot of time! Started building on it in April working on and off on it. And I am a slow builder (i often get distracted or need ages to figure something out). If i had build it straight away i would say i would have needed 7-10 days for it. But taking breaks in between surely helped to keep me motivated. It would have turned out much different without the breaks.
The prowler is intended for soft targets attacking the tank which are out of range of the point defense weapons on its sides, i.e. pesky infantry.

@Roc77: Everyone will be happy if you start to build something again, be it a SHIP, an AC or a SHDT! The hatred towards peaches would not be the same without your creations.

Which reminds me of the fact that i forgot to show you...:

...the people mower!

It is optional and i am not really happy with it. Just does not look epic and intimidating enough. Suggestions?

It does seem intimidating enough to me, but you could always give it RT chainsaws to look even more intimidating.

I thought of OT saws and my mouse cursor already hovered over the "add to cart" button on Bricklink...

It's a trade off between "get out of the way or your will be shred to pieces" and "get out of the way or you will be reduced to red paste". As a Wasteland fand i lean toward the latter.

The people mower really needs to be wider - and if possible, mix up a couple of blade designs in it just to give it a little more of a vicious feel.

When your tank can shit other tanks, you've pretty much won at life. This is probably one of the most :666: creations I've ever seen.

Well this just ends it: I have to finally build my super tank that I've been procrastinating.

The people mower is definitely a keeper, provided that you make it span the whole front of the tank.

Add some chains to the people mower to make it look more rough.

I understand your concern, but it actually isn't an issue. In OP you say that those guns are size 4, which to your point is a good size for dealing with hard targets that might be too small for the main gun. However, I did some test-building and measuring and so I have this to show you:


Image


Even if you knock the front brick off, it still can be counted as 4 inches because for all we know the gun barrel extends inside the turret housing. This comes out to slightly less than 4" but you can obviously :fudge: fudge it and say that it is 4" long and that anyone who wants to disagree with you can suck it because I said it was ok. A rule that isn't explicitly laid out in the rulebook but that can be inferred from the Hero chapter is that the cooler something looks, the better it is, and the more fudging you can get away with for it. I think the smaller turrets on this tank are cool enough for you to say that the guns are 4" long with the setup that I proposed.

I'll join the long list of people going :csi: to this, two storey tall Super Death Tanks are cool, but yellow, tank - "shitting" ones are even cooler. Good job
