Didn't really get around to blogging today, felt the random motivation to finish off a super-heavy tank for 40k that I've been working on and off on for a year or so. The Shadowsword has always been my favorite of the Imperial Super-Heavies, so when they finally came out with an affordable plastic one I had to get it. I painted it in the colors for my Death Korps of Kreig army that never happened, but thankfully it's well within the fluff for a random super-heavy to get attached to another unit from a different home world, so no real problem fielding the green/grey tank alongside my desert tan Velurian Armored Cav.
The pictures are rather meh, since it's getting dark out and I'm too lazy to set up any good lighting. But the thing is a beast, almost 10 inches long, and occupies enough space on the table to fit four standard battle tanks. A standard human sized guy can actually fit underneath the sponson. It's a biggin'!
Just thought I'd share why I slacked off from here today.
