|German Tiger II (King Tiger) with Zimmerit paint applied.|
I got my tank squadron configuration from Dawn of War as well; 1 Vanquisher to sit back and smash the tanks, and a pair of Demolishers with flamers to roll forward and smash enemy heavy infantry. So I decided to apply it to my Demolishers, thinking they would bear the brunt of any grenades etc. On with the tutorial!
This is a fairly straightforward operation. You'll need:
- The tank
- Polyfilla: any will work, but I find Polycell stuff is the best as it doesn't dry out in the tube unlike others
- An old knife
- Scalpel/modelling knife
- The Sting, with Robert Redford and Paul Newman (optional)
- A healthy disregard for using dinner table/cutlery for modelling (not optional)
And there you have it! Your tanks can roll forward, guns blazing with impunity (and bullets) and melt bombs bouncing off your armour. Provided you can make the 4+ save. After all this effort, it would be a shame if you just rolled a two, wouldn't it? Until next time ...
