Hello everyone,

This will be a very quick post just to share some finished pictures of a Carcharodon Space Marine Vindicator Tank I finished this afternoon.  Its for a 1850 point army I’m using this Saturday at GW Mt Gravatt 40k tournament.  The army list is basically the same one I took the ADFWGA Championships I played in earlier this month, just with a Vindicator tacked onto that list.  Yes, I’m using the Space Wolf Codex again…  Its addictive…  This isn’t the first Vindicator I’ve painted recently either.  You may remember I added one to my Iron Hands Space Marines a few months ago.  The kit that ended up being the Carcharodon Space Marine Vindicator was meant to be a second Iron Hands one, however it wasn’t meant to be.

The reason I decided to add a Vindicator to the list was that I felt one of the weaknesses of the list was that it has no real creditable way of dealing with heavy infantry such as Terminators, Ork Nobz, Paladins and Main Battle Tanks.  Yes I can deal with them, but in the past I just got lucky and was able to dispatch these foes… I don’t like relying on luck in my planning.  So a Carcharodon Space Marine Vindicator was in order.  The Vindicator has a massive buff now in 6th Ed thanks to the new rules for template weapons and if positioned well in cover or held in reserve to deal with anything that gets too close, it’s a real threat and my opponent had better factor this into his plan otherwise he’ll end up on the wrong end of a S 10 AP 2 Ord. Large Blast, and at 115 pts, why wouldn’t you? Plus it looks bad ass.

Ok, enough yakety yak, here are some pictures.

Don’t know why I added in the one of the Land Raider with the Vindicator, thought it just looked awesome.

I’ve also been doing a bit of work on the Forge World Realm of Battle Cityscape boards too so you should be seeing a post on them in the next few days, until then bye for now

About 3 weeks ago I played in Quarter Master 3 held here in Brisbane at Greenbank.  Although I didn’t place my Carcharodons did get Best Painted.  Apart from the Trophy I also got some gift certificates that I could spend at an independent gaming store called The Combat Company.  I have to say, I was really impressed with their service.  I ordered the models on a Friday, and I had them on Monday, no fuss.  I ended up getting two, one for my Carcharodons and the other for my Iron Hands.  Now that in 6th Ed troops that have a toughness buff from being on a bike don’t suffer instant death from their original toughness but their buffed toughness, taking out Ork biker Nobz is tough.  But not with this heavy hitter!  Its also really useful at smoking Terminators too who are also a real problem in 6th Ed.  So in my new Iron Hands list that I’ll be using next weekend at Alpha Hobbies Titans of War 1850pt Team Tournament has one it in.

As a matter of fact, I’m so happy with how this one has turned out I’m going to paint the second one as an Iron Hands Vindicator and I’ll be getting another so I can have a Line Breaker formation for games of Apocalypse, which I’ll be playing in Games Workshop Mt Gravatt’s 8000pt November tournament.

Anyways, here are some pics of the finished model.  I have to admit, I really like it without the dozer blade on it.  Reminds me of the old Epic scale Vindicator from back in the day.

 

ok, thanks for looking
