Hi guys,

What it says on the tin. I'd like my renegade guard/maybe one day blood pact to have walking tanks.

Only interested in a Chimera stand-in, and a Vanquisher stand-in for now.

Thanks in advance to any who reply

Hi guys,

Thanks for those links – very rapid response, and it looks like Tigers and Medium Mechs have me covered.

Appreciated :D

The DUST Warfare/Tactics minis from Fantasy Flight Games would be a good place to start. If you don't like the pseudo-WW2 look they're easily dressed up with plasticard top change the profiles a bit. You'll probably want the heavy walkers – there's a German APC walker due soon, and the Allies already have one.

DUST miniatures – any images of the scale compared to GW? Those vehicles are pretty badass.

There are probably other ones out there, but here's a youtube review/comparison:

The big quadruped/hexaped heavy walkers are quite a bit bigger than the bibedal medium walkers in the video.

The Axis walker has extreme potential – unless my eyes deceive me, the top will come flat (to allow the two options to be constructed), so tht leaves room for a variety of turrets.

* Sorry for double-post

Does anyone happen to know if the Forgeworld Ryza Leman Russ turrets are complete enough to just stick on top?
