Nice, but the Leman Russ Cyclops looks kinda stupid.

Not bad... painting could be better and some of the conversions are a little dodgy but overall it loks weel presented.

I love the bikers...but the rest aren't that impressive, I must say. A good example of "good models, average painting". It's just not crisp or sharp enough...I must say...but for a personal army, it's awesome.

One of my regular opponants has had this style conversion IG for some time now. No real shocker for me thus. This army looks nice, but I really don't care for the color scheme, the tanks, or in fact the leaning troops.

The bikers are really awesome, but the others are pretty much normal.

The tank seems to have a vincdicator battlecannon and definetely a pred turret.

don't see what the problem is with the paint scheme, I think it all goes well together and as the person who made the army had a strong theme for the army and stuck with it.

I like the creativity of the army and this person has made an army of his own, in the true spirit of 40K as a hobby.

notice he was the only army in the top five to not sport power armour, GW seemed to like it, give the guy credit, he has imagination

I believe he reversed the demolisher cannon to the hull, obviously with some other part to make that conversion, and put a forge world lascannon turret up top.

my friend who posted right before me showed me this army and I agree with him that it is very good and if you guys who are talking trash about the paint scheme would like to post your army on this thread to make comparisons I encourage you to do so. I don't expect any posts of that nature because I'm sure you don't have the modelling or painting skills to back up your bold claims.
