Whats On Your Table: Daemonic Tank Commander

For the second half of What's On Your Table, a Daemonic Tank Commander to lead the hordes as allies to the Word Bearers.

While this model was thrown together and painted in haste to have it ready for TexasGamesCon a couple weeks ago, I am still proud of how this guy came out.

I wanted a Leman Russ Punisher tank commander to go with my Word Bearers CSM army as allies, so I ripped open the turret mount of a Chimera and inserted a Daemon Prince in its place, firing a forgefiend gun as his Punisher.  The sponsons are from a Predator kit, and the “bridges” that cross the treads were cut from plasticard.

I’m still planning to replace the lasgun arrays with some smokestacks of some sort, but I wasn’t able to get that planned out and completed before the tournament.

I’ve got details on this conversion, army shots with more conversions, and a plaguebearer painting tutorial over on my blog,

  1. thanks for the link to your blog. i have found it very helpful. especially since i am returning to a nurgle-esque project. also had a similar idea going on with my GUO but have since converted it and removed it from the SM rhino/pred/vindy chassis. i like the paint scheme on the above model.

  2. Out of curiosity, given the way wound allocation works this edition, is it still a good idea to have the punisher kit out that way? Was thinking it might be better to have plasma sponsons to act as blasts, remove the bigger clumps of models, then pick away at survivors. Maybe add a las canon to try and insta kill that last ic who would survive

    1. I'm actually not sure how wound allocation negatively impacts the full-dakka punisher loadout. For the different weapon profiles, I just fire the Punisher cannons first and then unload with the heavy bolters. The only tricky part is getting in range, but with the order for them to flat out, they can usually get there in a reasonable time.

      The other setup I have played with in listbuilding is Pask with a punisher cannon, multi-melta sponsons and a lascannon hull mount, but that's for hunting Monstrous Creatures, but to be honest I find that in most cases, quantity supercedes quality for the Punisher. Throwing out 29 shots per tank is nothing to shrug off!
