|Available in any colour, as long as it is red.|
Another reason for the build is that I just don't like the model available. An example of this is the Space Marine Thunderfire Cannon. I don't mind the Cannon, but I have never liked the track unit. And considering the destruction it can bring on the battlefield, I don't think the model is big enough to portray it's true effectiveness. Therefore, a perfect modelling project for me.
On of my first attempts, based on a shortened Imperial Guard Chimera, is nice, but did end up being a little too big (no surprises there!)
|A more stable gun platform, but perhaps accusations of modelling for advantage!|
I have recently added two new versions, using the track units from a Taurox model and some reclaimed missile launchers from a rarely used Whirlwind. So, now with three models I like, I am ideally placed to have the three Cannons that the new Space Marine Codex allows me to take as one heavy support choices.
|Two are always better than one.|
I have a 1850 point game soon, and I will let you know how three Cannons perform.
