This is my blog about my armored legion, the 91st Experimental.
A huge Ad Mech, IG, SM armada.

Its story is constantly evolving and changing and alot has changed since the first post on it (below).
Within you will find many insane experiments, Prototypes and more.

Sonic Cannon Leman Russ, Aka "Ultra Sonic Low Frequency Burst Emitter"

The Ordantus Mars of the Adeptus Mechanicus is famed for carrying a massive "Sonic Disruptor" as its main weapon, capable of leveling city blocks and obliderating armored colunms.
the Sonic Cannon was an attempt to shrink that weapon technology to a size capable to be transported on a Leman Russ or even a Predator. Problems arose as the far larger Sonic Disruptor uses a High frequency and at a smaller scale without the sheer power of a titan grade reactor could not destroy targets within a feasable amount of time, and during a few field tests, it was shown that follows of Slasnesh, particuarly Noise Marines, where unaffected by the weapon and in fact actully enjoyed being "shot at" by the weapon. The Sonic Cannon was withdrawn from field tests after a squad of Noise Marines attempted to capture the weapon dispite it being guarded by a large contingent of Skitari. The Sonic Cannon was discarded and made its way to Shrott's scrap mountains where a group of recently recruited tankers and a excentric (and possibly mad) Tech Preist located the device. Schrott Regimental Traditions dictate every tank crew must build/salvage/refurbish their own tank from the waste fields of Schrott allowing the crews to become attuned to their machine. The weapon was tinkered with extensivly by the group and eventually (and most likly accidentally) they changed the device from a High Frequency shaker to Low frequency "thump" that was able to flatten nearly anything from short range. its first test at lower power blew out all viewports and windows within a 500 foot radius.

Classified as a Demolisher Cannon to disuade Administratum personael, the Sonic Cannon Leman Russ which has been named the "Shatterer" is able to reduce a bunker to dust in a single blast, make a charging group of infantry be they heavily armored or not into a gory paste, and bring down a tank with an invisible force liek that of the Emporer's hand crashing down on it.

the Mechanicus has since renewed its intrest in the concept and have been collecting data from the Shatterer's combat reports extensivly.

All the machines have a grain of lore connecting them to 40k.

Next up. Tesla Leman Russ. or "High Voltage Plasma Discharge Array"

Dreamed up and built by an insane Electro-preist (whos name has since been lost) to amplify his power of electricity the High Voltage Plasma Discharge Array was initially built into a suit the Electro-preist wore in combat and it stood above other machines letting loose great bolts of lightning into the enemys of man. During a heated campagin the electro preist was killed by a Eldar Pathfinder and the machine toppled over after repeated hits to the legs with a massive explosion of energy as it slammed into the ground vaporizing its creator. The Xenos were beaten back and the remnants of the machine was collected and sent to Shrott for disassembly only for it to be lost amoung the mountains of scrap metal and sleeping machines. the story goes that during a massive storm the location of the machine was shown to a Schrott Executioner Tanker who had lost his machine in battle by the lightning striking the electrodes repeatedly. The tank commander soon brought together the weapon, a war torn Leman Russ Hull and turret, and a powerful plasma reactor creating the "Lightning Russ".

The Electro-cutioner rolls into battle unleashing huge arcs of power that vaporize the enemys of the imperium. 100 Million GigaVolts of Emperors Fury. Now who needs a hook up?
Classified as a Executioner Leman Russ. The Lightning bolt that the tank fires arcs into 3 impacts (you can imagine it ) like the 3 shots of the plasma executioner cannon.

They're novel, at least. I'm all for counts-as modeling projects and I like the ideas behind each weapon system, but they don't work for me, aesthetically. Imperial tech is, admittedly, rather hard to scratchbuild, because there's a somewhat rigid scale (as ludicrous as that sounds, considering the various inconsistencies within the overall system) and style to it. With their size, as compared to the vehicles mounting them, and huge, arcing wires, these tanks are a few glyph plates shy of looking right at home in an Ork army.

For Imperial tech - even experimental stuff - I would strongly recommend trying to fit your ideas somewhat more into the established aesthetic. The guns will jive better with the vehicles and your physical army will better suit your interesting fluff.

Moved? meh not gonna complain. those posted are infact completed machines, if only in construction. some things like maybe dirt and debris i could add later shoudl i get around to actully buying some of that stuff and applying it, but thats for another time.

Anyways. Most note the bizzare almost orkish appearance of some machines of mine. simple fact is, fluff wise my regiment preety much gets no help whatsoever in terms of supplies for vehicular weaponry or any weapons for that matter) and therefore must salvage/build everything they have including integrating long lost Mechanicus experimental weapons like those above (hence their name). full fluff ill put on my little army article when i make it, first gotta finish all the things i got for christmas and add them into my army, no less cling to sanity as i paint a large number of guardsmen. thank the emporer for a reletivly simple paint job troop wise.

Next up.

scratch built Basilisk. aka the "Hand of Redeption", origionally the pheniox but i thought it was a bit corny, and the converted Minotaur "The Guardian"

cue fluffyness!

During a campaign in the caligulus system (system made up for a apoc series of battles currently in) the 91st captured 3 working Earth Shaker cannons from a Renigade Guardsmen basilisk battery, the Basilisk vehicales themselves where obliderated by a barrage from the 91st's lead Baneblade the "Thunderfury" (main baneblade cannon, and 4 lascannon shots later lol) yet the earth shaker cannons remained intact.
2 were mounted on a large tank hull roughly the size of a malcador converting the beast into a Minotaur heavy artillary and the remaining cannon was moutneed to a hull completly built from spare parts and scrap metal. powered by 2 tractor engines (heavily governed) and sitting on a odd arranged ment of tracked suspension the "Hand of Redemption" carrys the 3rd earth shaker captured by the 91st. The Hand has already proven itself a sturdy platform and has claimed at least 100+ kills (approxamate, not enough left of the target to make a proper estimate) against the Renegade Regiment its cannon was taken from. the Minotaur known as "The Guardian" has also made similar results.

will get higher quality pics of minotaur soon. Oh and the Basilisk comparison shot. paint job is not top notch on the normal tank as that was my first basilisk ever and have not bothered to re-paint it. my 2nd basilisk is not shown here, gallery has full battery picture.

M3 Lee Malcador.

long long before i joined dakka i saw someone had built a malcador (the battle cannon equiped variant i belive) out of the same M3 Lee model kit I had at the time and I built a Malcador Annialator out of it with the origional as insperation. I cannot find that origional M3 Lee Malcador in the gallery again unfotunatly, but heres that tank all the same. as well as a few higher quality shots of the Minotaur.
Also. the Forge World Minotaur model has the cannons facing backwards so my minotaur the "Guardian" does the same. the heavy bolter and Aquila dictate which end is the front, 3 times people have mistaken the front for its rear in battle lol.

MInotaur armaments: twin (not linked 2 plates on top of each other with seperate scatter) Earth shaker cannons
Malcador Annialator: Twin Linked Lascannon in limited transverse turret, lascannon side sponsons, heavy stubber, Hull mounted Demolisher Cannon, and plenty ammo to go around.

Got bored so took pic's of my Russes besides 2 of them which are unmodified/unpainted.

Each and every Leman Russ i have (besides 2 which will change soon) has been modified to some degree. wheather its the Executioner with the extra heat venting, or the battle tank with extra weaponry. some have gone so far as to change the machine all together like the Flak 88 Vanquisher or the "Reaper Walker" Leman Russ built from scratch. The Tessla Russ or the onic Cannon Russ are amoung them but have already been shown. the First tank i ever got for 40k is the Vanquisher with an aircraft wing for a dozer blade, paint isn't stellar but it was my first foray into 40k so i keep it as is as a reminder of where I started.

Fluff for the more radical designed machines.

"Reaper Walker" Leman Russ: As mentioned Schrott Regimental tradition dictates a newly trained Tank crew must build/salvage/refurbish their machine from the hulks and scrap parts covering Schrott while acompanied by a local Mechanicus Tech Preist. The Reaper WAlker was dreamed up by a young crew of brothers (who ironically their last name means "Spider") who after spending several nights in the waste field came out with the 4 legged monstrosity and entered the machine for trails to be approved by their C.O. The machine dispite its insane appearance of sitting on 4 large spiked legs with a salvalage battle wagon turret mounting the normal battle cannon, actully could keep pace with other Leman Russes and could take hits like any other machine and keep fighting. The machien and crew passed with flying colors and was deployed along side other Russes of the 91st. the Mechanicus keep tabs on the machine out of intrest in its locomotion and how effective it is. SO far the machine has taken down many enemy targets including hiting the rear armor of a Renegade Baneblade causing the machine to detonate in a massive explosion.

Flak 88 Vanquisher: an awkward cannon and gun sheild mounted on a Leman Russ Hull, the cannon itself was found buried under a local dwelling on Schrott and the occupant was removed and relocated whiel the cannon was fitted to a suitible platform. origionaly the design was to have a fixed mounting on a Russ hull to make a assault gun akin to a Laser Destroyer but after further digging a turret mount was found and a massive gunsheild was mounted to the tank. a plaform built into the rear of the gun sheild allowed the crew to operate the cannon. the machine utalizes its extreame long range and accuracy to make armor kills without endangering its crew. Its first mission a Space Marine Land Raider was the first thing that felt the long armed fury of "Dead Eye", the round penetrated the thick adamantium hull of the Land Raider and caused the engine to go critical killing several of the renegade marines inside, the rest who escaped the explosion were guned down by the 91st infantry.

and for fun of it. fluff of the Battle Tank "Foe Hammer" (the one with lots of guns!): Foe Hammer is one of the most distiguished Leman Russes of the 91st. Participating in nearly every battle, killing every Xeno or heretic it was sent against, be it Ork, Chaos, Tau, Eldar or Renegade Imperial Forces. Damage to the left sponson sheered off the heavy bolter and most of the sponson structure, the gunner was lucky to have lived, the crew repaired the sponson with parts taken from a killed Predator (Renegade not Chaos) and a heavy bolter from an enemy guardsmen heavy weapons team, the Kills of the Foe Hammer are as numerous as the stars, the machiens life before it ending up on Shrott are a mystery but heavy scars tell of many battles past. The Foe Hammer continues to fight in the name of the Emporer and crush anything before it.
The Foe Hammer was actully the last 4th edition ( I think) Leman Russ in my local store. I picked it up due to it really cool box art (tank driving forwards guns blazing) and found out why it was different from the other Russes during assembly. It was my second Russ out of the lot purchased after my first basilisk. So far hes been in all my battles when a vanquisher wasn't needed.

Bringing out the big guns.

Super Heavies of the 91st. with the little Sentinals too.

While Super Heavies can only be used in Apoc matches i greatly enjoy using them and of course constructing them. Also Baneblade prices are rather high ($100 or so for a Baneblade or Shadowsword set last i checked), Admitantly i kinda, tried to dodge the heavy price for equal machines, plus i have a liking for History so i search around and found a pair of the gigantic German Super Heavy Tanks from WW2. The E-100 and Maus (Mouse). at 1/35th scale the machines are slightly slimmer then a Baneblade (remidied by addition of sponsons) and maybe a fraction of a centimeter longer then a baneblade and the turrets are far larger and making the tanks taller if only by about a centimeter. currently have 2 GW SH's (baneblade and Shadowsword) with 2 German Super Heavies with a third still in pieces in its box.

The Maus tank is only based at the moment will get back with painted pic.

Tank Names:
Baneblade (GW): Thunderfury
Shadowsword (GW) : Ashbringer
E-100 Baneblade: Koloss (Juggernaut in German)
Maus: Kreigsgott (God of War)

Maus still being painted.

Got a WIP Leman Russ carrying a beam weapon (akin to the lance batterys of the Navy), on high intensity a long range blast fires (vanquisher) and on low intensity a constant beam fires (punisher cannon). least thats how i see it. obviously if its punisher or vanquisher is decided before battle and stuck too throughout.

still needs paint and im decided whether or not to add parts to the front of the machine. the rear holds alot of wires and cooling tubes. including exposed parts of the reactor powering the entire machine. the turret has a bank of capacitors on the rear of the turret consiting of many kinds of parts (from sprue to other model bitz to square grid section of a fantasy base). the barrel of the weapon (plasticard) has sections cut into it with another tube inside which will have a different color (similar to a plasma weapons vents).

Its partialy inspired by a Tank from Saints Row The Third. the Crusader, the tank has a secondary position with a powerful beam weapon able to mow through personel or cars and/or lightly armored things like aircraft, its not very effective agaisnt tanks though, but thats what the main cannon is for, Other insperation are from various tanks in fiction with a laser as its main armament (constant beam not a pulse like anything star wars)

Beam tank painted

A powerful microwave beam weapon mounted into a Leman Russ turret with a powerful plasma reactor powering it and the entire tank by extention (the vehicale still retains it engine for redundancy along with a reserve fuel tank). the reactor runs off a neon gas mixture (causing the beam and its powerlines to be orange in color as well as the reactor underneath the rear vents to let off a glow). the weapon system can have its capacitors mounted on the rear of its turret super charged before a battle allowing it to unleash a long range consentrated beam similar to the Lance batteries of the Imperial Navy (the weapon was dirived from the Lance weapon system with multiple changes), the super charging has a side effect of only allowing the weapon to fire in this manner or risk a catistrophic failure (vanquisher). Normal operation has the weapon unleash a constant beam of energy (punisher cannon) allowing it to run at a constant rate and allowing it to keep fighting without haveing to stop and recharge its capacitors.

Built by a Mechanicus artisan as a way to increase the firepower of a favorite combat machine. the machine was deployed into battle to recover a piece of STC data in a expedition to a far off planet, the STC was not found but the Tyrianids were encountered on the planet and the machine fell to the swarm and was left behind as the Mechanicus expedition escaped. Years later the 91st as well as several other regiments and a Space Marine Chapter (id love to name them all....) desended upon the planet to reclaim it for the Imperium from the xeno's. AS the campaign covered the planet the 91st Experimental and the 39th "Tiger Claws" came across the location of the Mechanicus expdetions fallen machines. Before all the machines could be completly recovered an attack by the Tyranids forced the 91st and 39th to fall back to higher ground, but they managed to load the Beam cannon weilding machine's remains onto their salvaged Battlewagon turned Dragon Wagon. In the fight to higher ground a Leman Russ tank was disabled to the extent of its main weapon being torn apart and its crew killed by the Tyranid forces. Entrenched upon a platoe surrounded by the swarm the 91st let loose a Vortex missle upon the swarm sucking up thousands of Tyranids in the vortex anomaloy generated by the Deathstrikes warhead along with its synapse creatures. casuing the swarm to desolve into disarray as the leaderless insects severved from the hivemind turned on each other and anything within reach. As the swarm turned on itself the 91st and 39th pounded the swarm with heavy ordinace until nothing outside the Imperial Lines stood (save a 2 foot high rock, dispite the complete saturating of the area around the platoe) the 2 regiments maanged to make it off planet before the planet was virus bombed and terraformed. the other regiments and Space marine chapter had since not been heard from. The Beam cannon was mated to the Leman Russ along with the "heart" of the machine (its unique reactor powerplant) It was renamed the "Paladin" for the "seering holy light" it unleashes upon its foes.

as said before the Beam Tank was inspired by the weapons of the STAG tanks in Saints Row the Third, along with other laser tanks in fiction. Its mostly fielded as a Punsiher and did rather well in its first battle (ironically was actully against Tyranids like the fluff)

For fun and as part of a Apocolypse scenario i am building "The Harbinger of Conquest" still WIP

An enormous cannon on a massive truck platform (actully needs 2 truck bodies). the cannon itself is named "Das Boom" by the one who painted it for me Dice_Junkie
the entire system together (Cannon onboard the Trucks for a mobile platform) is the "The Harbinger of Conquest".

the cannon is from a Atomic Cannon set (280mm USA Artillary Piece able to lob roughly 12 to 15 kiloton nuclear shells about 20 miles). and the Apoc scenario has the cannon capable of annialating vast swaths of any army with a single shot (the opposing team gets some ability that balences the sheer power of the cannon)

only got the cannon and the front truck cab together. Rear truck needs assembly and then a frame to link the 2 trucks together and have the cannon mounted on board.

The Harbinger of Conquest is nearly complete, only needs paint and a few details like an ammo rack and armor plate plusa few other things.

its a massive vehicale. it dwarfs a Leman Russ, not to mention a Guardsmen. Even a Baneblade sitting next to it is still small in comparasin.
besides the massive main cannon (280mm Nuclear Cannon) it carries on the front a pair of twin linked lascannons, and an auto cannon. on the rear a pintle mounted stubber next to an auto cannon.
Smoke launchers, extra armor plate, a search light and advanced Communication gear rounds it out. It would of course be guarded by numerous guardsmen squads and other weapons like tanks, and Hydras. might add a pair of heavy bolter platforms onboard as well.

still trying to figure out the rules for the cannon in the scenario, i want to put to shame a Vortex Missle but be balenced (rules and abilitys for the opposite team can be used). feel free to throw in an idea.

I had it with the 10 inch blast being the "impact zone" where everything is utterly vaporized (remove everything be it terrain or troops like a vortex missle wounds on Super heavys and monsters work the same as a vortex) then at the border of the 10 inch blast would be the blast zone which would be a strength 9 AP 2 hit to everything in it. the blast zone goes for about 6 inches around the 10 inch. the opposite team would have the ability to replace lots units (not special ones like special characters or heavy armor, but the rank and file ones like ground troops and light armor/ground transports) for free starting them on the side of the board and have them advance 2 D6 + 12 to regroup with the rest of the army on the field.

Remember its a Nuclear blast.

Those are my ideas for the cannons rules. feel free to inject your own idea for the Harbinger' s rules. comments otherwise?

I was expecting more comment with 1500+ views. meh, i have no problems with it
Ty anyways (same to the others who commented before this post).

Long time ago my 3rd foray into converting i built a Hydra AA tank out of a old German 20mm quad ack ack gun (the parts of the gun had long since been lost leaving only the gun itself) and a Chimera. a bit of cuting and gluing i manged to wedge the 20mm AA gun into the turret and postion a Guardsmen behidn it with arms in such a position as to operate the weapon system.

Fluff: The 91sts first Chimera built was damaged heavily in its 3rd mission after a Battlewagon sent a shell into the turret, obliderating the multi laser and all its components. The gunner was killed instantly leaving only his helmet. His son , a whitesheild at the time, vowed to avenge his father and manged to get the help of several enginseers to weld a quad aa cannon into what remained of the Chimeras turret. He now wears his fathers helmet religiously and fires the quad cannon into his targets relentlessly and with fast reflexes manages to bring down aircraft with ease all while roaring at the top of his lungs. His devotion is so great he often sleeps in the chair behind the Quad A A gun at the ready at all times. The name of the tank the "Air Cleaner" was not gifted to the tank by its devoted operator but by the troopers supported by it, thankful for the relentless fire that kills enemy aircraft or skimmers away (along with anythign else the Quad AA can reach) with lethal efficiency.

Oh and dispite the fluff, when i was building the tank i didn't have a "yelling" guardsmen head at the time.

I think ill repaint him, or at least the get guardsmen operating the gun painted better.

The Harbinger is getting finished.. just needs paint now.

Otherwise i got a Macharious tank project going. origionally i was going to use the hull of a M60 model for a Gorgon but i scrapped that and instead am outfitting it to run as either a normal Macharious (twin linked battle cannons) or a Vanquisher Macharious (twin link vanquisher cannons).

So far the hull has been modified with a boxy structure and the hull mounted twin linked stubbers on the M60 hull. the turret is going to mounted on the rear.
most of the armor is rivited (second attempt at riveting details.) the riveted plates are on the top and side. ill deal with the rear, not to mention the side sponsons and the turret.
Its guns will have a giant Duel revolver look with a big drum at the breaches of each cannon

in total. this would make 5 Super heavies. (not counting the Malcador Annialator or Minotaur, with those its 7)

the tank does not have a name yet.

Macharius Tank continues. Harbinger only needs paint now. but im out of spray paint so i can't base it yet.

Anwyays. Macharious now has a pair of heavy bolter sponsons and part of its turret. the giant duel revolver idea i had sounded easy in concept but trying to build 2 large drums (and have them visible for an enclosed turret) is hard if not pointless as they won't be seen. aw well.

the turret will be bolted together and boxy like the hull while the barrels of the guns extend over the tank quite a bit.
I think ill name it the "DreadSaber" with its twin guns being its "Fangs" that deliver the power behind its mighty "bite"

Comments? (please)

DreadSaber, Macharius Super Heavy Tank, (conversion)

A M60 tank model converted with plasticard and parts into a Battle/Vanquisher Super Heavy tank.
Armament includes front mounted twin linked Stubbers, with sponson mounted Heavy bolters. its likly taller then a forge world Macharius but i like it.

the pink markings are from a marker i used for measuring and cutting. The only unfinished part is the lack of muzzle breaks on the long cannon barrels.

the massive bulky turret is inspired by WW2 USA tank prototypes simply known as the T29,T30, or T34. having large "ergonomic" turrets with thick gunsheilds and powerful guns (105mm,155mm, and 120mm respectivly)


After the small addition of the muzzle breaks, it'll get based and painted.
Its name of the "DreadSaber" like said before is from its duel cannons being its "fangs" that it uses to obbiderate the enemys of man with a powerful "bite"

Comments and stuff please.

No major updates, and havn't figured out a new project yet. Was thinking of Making a Malcador Valdor Tank hunter, but i cannot find the rules for its main cannon the neutron projector laser, i know its streangth 10 AP 2 but i think theres more to it then that. was also contemplating a malcador defender. both from a panzer 4 hull (jagdpanzer 4 for the valdor).

can anyone provide the rules for the Nutron Laser projector of the valdor tank hunter?

Otherwise got a New hydra. the Whirlwind, a Basilisk turned Hydra after its previous owner removed the earth shaker and turned it into a chimera, which i got and added a Whirbelwind Flak Panzer turret and other bits. also i got muzzle breaks on the Dread Saber Macharius tank. im out of basing paint so it'll be a while till they all get painted.

The Dreadsaber, Macharius Super Heavy Tank

The Macharius Super heavy tank had many attempts to nail down the design during its inception. The Dreadsaber was one of the many attempts to create the Macharius but it escaped the destruction of its prototype brethren when it was shipped to Schrott via shipping error when it was enroute to its demise when the Macharius design was finalized. It was laid to rest and forgotten. Inevitably it was found again and repaired, it had lain near a fallen titan for decades. The Dreadsaber is a marvel of Admech technology and 91st know-how. It forgoes human loaders for giant revolvers that draw from a magazine in the rear of the elongated turret loading the twin cannons quickly allowing it to unleash the power of its guns with maximum effect. Protruding from a increadibly thick gun sheild the barrels of its cannons are extreamly long allow the machine to load either the incredibly powerful armor piercing Vanquisher shells or load High Explosive shells, but the magazine system is flawed to the point that it must carry only a single type of ammunition before a battle and can only change out after a mission. Its ferro-steel hide is suplimented by plates of Adamantium bolted onto the hull and turret in many places. The Dreadsaber and its mighty "Fangs" (its twin cannon) are now awaiting thier first battle.

Also with my now painted Tech Preists (who's servitors have not been assembled yet.....), Techpreist on the left i actully lost his orgional axe so with sprue, a screw and a few bits gave him a drill style device.

Whirlwind, Hydra AA tank conversion. (painted)
And Uni-Wheel scout "bike"... well its kinda a bike.

can't think of fluff right now. im too confused about what a tiny side project turned out as.
Whirlwind started as a Bailisk with its origional owner, when then turned it into a Chimera after he removing the Earth Shaker. then i got it and added a few bits and a Wirbelwind Flak panzer turret to the rear, (cheap-ish too, 10 for the chimera and about 30 for the flak panzer, which its hull will become a Malcador possibly)


After that. in a fit of boredom i built this odd single wheeled contraption thats more at home in an ork Waaagh. i think part of it came from the Halo Brute Chopper and a bit of madness thrown in (painting too many troopers at a time does that).

My best idea would be it could fill the role of Scout Sentinal as its too large to be a Bike/Rough rider and is armed with Auto Cannons anyways, and sits on a large base that i happened to find buried in my bits box. it will likly not be dissasembled but be tweaked a bit until im satisfied.

The Uni-Wheel scout Bike concept went a wee bit further. no major mods but its painted and has a few details like dust and debris along the wheel (dirt and things for the base will come later maybe)

On Schrott there is a tradition that at the age of 17 a Citizen of Schrott must construct their own transportation to get around Schrott which itself is extreamly inhospitable with Gamma Storms that could disintagrate a human instantly or Dust Storms that could wrend flesh from bone and more. One of those machines was a "Bike" built by a young Schotter who enjoyed the thrill of speed and wanted something different from the common 2 or 4 wheels many others build. He created the Bike from a large tire built for a transport that could heft 50+ tons, a pair of small Jet engines, scrap metal, a galvanic motor usually seen on a Tauros Venator, and sheer determination. The result was a fast light machine able to keep up with a scout sentinal at full stride and equiped with Auto Cannons can shred through light armor and infantry easily.

Its been named the "Hell Wheel" for the engines letting out streams of flames and the machine hurtling forwards guns blazing.

Plays as a Scout Sentinal with an Auto Cannon.
