finally i made it! when GW put out Apocalypse i had the idea to build and paint a whole tank company, wondering about how the command tank should look. well, i guess it must look as this!
this Exterminator is led by Knight Commander Zhukov (Pask) so it is full of kill and honour markings, a scroll, commander heraldry, custom weapons and many extra fuel tanks. in addition to this i painted it with a custom camo scheme with a different pattern (check out Leman Russ 511 to see how different) in order to make it look like coming from an older batch of production, but, of course, i used the same colours.
in the lower right part there's a yellow aquila marking from an old transfer sheet: it is meant like an honour badge or a command designation
on this side i applied the same badge painting it half spoiled... decades of war aren't bodywork friendly.
i put an extra lasgun on the back... you never know what's gonna happen when you are bailed out of the tank.
so? do you like it?
