Commutatus: IG Manticore

I had posted a while back that the whirlwind turret fit perfectly into the older style leman russ kit. Well, here is the finished project. I have to say that it actually came out better than I thought it would.

I went this route mainly because I have more Russ chassis lying around than I typically use in a game and I had a whirlwind kit for a marine list that never saw the light of day.

Does anyone else find themselves chopping off a hull mounted lascannon and going with the flamer instead? After a few engagements, I am realizing that once the turret is gone, these guys make nice, little mini-hellhounds.

Nice, like your 'thrifty-ness'!

Looks good!

Cool tank! That's a neat use for your old leman russ, I like it a lot.

Thanks for the kind words. Now if only I could figure out a simple conversion for the Colossus!
