Here we have the H.E.L. Cannon for the Leviathan Crusader, a very big gun indeed that is about the height of an Imperial Knight.
I am working on some homebrew 40K rules for the Crusader, to run it as an Imperial Knight variant, based on a Forge World profile. This weapon will likely be a Volcano Cannon, hopefully enough to deal with a Chaos Knight.
The is indeed a very big gun, but not the biggest that a Leviathan Crusader can carry.
The next weapon build will be the H.E.L. Cannon. That looks like it will be the height of an Imperial Knight.
This is a very big box of bits, the Dreamforge Leviathan Crusader.
I bought this model years ago as I thought it would go with my Grey Knights really well, the helmet design is a perfect match for later generation Grey Knight Terminators.
It is quite a complicated kit and it got put on a shelf to collect dust for a while. And I do mean a while.
I also had no idea how to go about painting it. As it is a fully articulated model, I thought I should paint each component before building, something that would take some time to do. This is another reason it has sat around for ages.
But now that I am playing 40K again and models the size of Imperial Knights actually have decent rules and I have an airbrush, I am building the damn thing.
So starting with the feet, I am working my way up the model. By the time I got to the top of the leg, I realised this will be considerably taller than an Imperial Knight. I think I will need a homebrew 40K profile for this model, something that is in between a Knight and a Titan.
I picked up this figure in a bits box a few years at a show and forgot about him. So I have just painted him up ina simple scheme for Rogue Stars and quite possibly an Acolyte for an Inquistion crew.
No idea what company it is from, so if anyone knows…
So after the block painting comes the ink.
I may yet go back and fill in the skull eye sockets with black paint, but basically it is finished.
This is a great sculpt, maybe a bit smaller than I was expecting, but I really like the quality of Wargame Exclusive models. I must order some more!
By the time I had finished slapping paint onto the resin Inquisitors car, it was a lot less black and grey than I thought it was going to be. Needs inking.
