Now where is this going Insaniak? A flying tank with treads or a tank with treads that also flies?

Just a regular tank. No flying for you!


I disliked the idea of Marines having grav tanks, and disliked the way it looked on the Repulsor even more... So thought it would be fun to explore what it would have looked like as a regular tracked vehicle instead.

So this is a Primaris Terra Firma pattern tank then?

Rhinopulser still seems like a great name though!

I think it should have coil springs underneath it and bounce like Tiger to its target.

The wheels peaking out are much better than most Imperial tanks with the skirt going all the way to the ground.

Yeah. Gives it at least a possible potential chance of having some suspension..

Looking good, even has the GW trademark door where all the wheel mechanisms are .

It reminds me of some of the robot wars cars that wedge under other robots then flip them over .

Yeah, the door placement is unfortunate, but would have required more work to fix than I was prepared to put into it

And it has pretty rubbish ground clearance, but that's at least in keeping with standard imperial vehicle design. I'm keeping the repulsor bumpers on the front, so maybe it uses those to 'bounce' over obstacles

Almost time for paint. Made some modifications to the grenade pod placement to streamline the turret a little.

I decided to go with as many grenade launchers as possible, partly for the fun of flinging so many grenades about, and partly to reduce the ridiculous number of different weapons to keep track of. The Repulsor has access to storm bolters, two different types of heavy stubber, two different types of missile, two different types of grenades, two different gatling cannons, two different lascannons... Taking as many grenade launchers as possible instead of other options should hopefully mean not having to spend a week resolving the shooting phase.
