Default Leman Russ.. Need your thoughts

Well I recently got a bit excited when I realised a possibility, I had a motor or 3 spare...

And I had built a gun;

A while ago, and that tempted me to build one a bit longer, I will use it on my Squiggoth, but it seems to fit nicely on the russ;

[Sorry for poor quality, my phone was at hand and my dads camera is no-where to be found :]

Right, this little exhibition is nearly over.. I wanted to get all the cool bits out of the way first
Right, finally... To see it in 'action'
Warning, I decided to play music so you can't hear the gentle hum of the motor, music not good for delicate ears :P The music also goes rather well with the gun..

Anyway, I have a rules question.
What could I count it as? I would love to just jump the gun and say assault cannon, but we all know that the IG aren't too well known for using them.
I could say then count as an exterminator, but I never see guns like that having such long range, what would you guys suggest?

Hehe you could use it as the rumoured H20 Punisher variant.

I've seen that, and I think I've seen the french reference sheet but I'm not too sure on the rules, I'll try and find the sheet again..

But thanks for that, forgot about that thing.

I just saw that O_O

My first thoughts at 20 shots were pretty much "drool".
AP - isn't really that bad, hordes will fail most and SMurfs would died fast enough anyway..

but I think I'm settled on the choice now *Goes to look for small motor and any way of soldering this stuff*

For now, use the Exterminator rules; it may only be a TL Autocannon, but it's legal.

Build a bigger one and make it fire metal ball bearings.

Seriously, nice job. Looks cool.

Looks really good - i wouldn't have a problem with my oponent using it as an assault cannon, as long as they paid a fair points value.

thats a sweet conversion mate and it's not too far off what the punisher looks like the, actual cannon is much bigger but you could always say yours comes from a different forge world. Check out Matt Hutson's army in this month's white dwarf he has one
