Default Malacador with Battle Cannon

I know people have had mixed feelings about the Malacador... this version, at least, lacks the 'bolter box' on the top and mounts a real man's gun!

I must say, now that is a nice turret. The only really good gw/fw one. THere always too tall, but this works with that.

GOod with the rivets. Needes a little more, but eh...
ANd some thing with that heavy stubber on the hull is a bit odd, I don't know why though...

Now if only they were making this in plastic.

I kinda like the other version better. This one still has that retro WW1 charm, but the other variant reminds me of a Whippet Tank.

Is the cannon only a 180 degree radius? Seems locked onto the hull like the old Sturm assault guns from WW2.

Probably limited to the front arc for game terms.

Eh, I don't like it as much. The Malcador was pretty unique, not every tank gets Seven Heavy Bolters. This one is just a Suerheavy Russ with three lascannons.

so what your saying is that oven cleaner can remove paint from plastic models? and after that, you take a toothbrush to your plastic model, and the paint just comes off?
