The Apocalypse Heavy Battle Tank I've designed for Vanguard Miniatures is as good as ready. All I need before shipping it off for printing is some final feedback.

So any suggestions, comments, etc. are more than welcome. :)

That big dumb turret with the short derpy gun is so KV-2, and this is not strictly a bad thing.

On the other hand the flat top of the chassis is a little odd, doesn't really look like a tank. It just feels a little wrong. Might just be me? May also be the flat top combined with the raised turret ring. Could perhaps try dropping the turret ring a little (or sitting it near flush) and raising the engine deck behind the turret. Assuming you're interested in making drastic changes at this stage, of course.

Alternatively bring the turret ring down flush with the deck and then raise both the fighting compartment forward and engine deck aft up a little higher to give it a bit of a KV-5 silhouette.

Of note: Rear elevation looks good, front elevation feels a little top-heavy or tall, plan view is good (and has good lines front and rear), but the side elevation is particularly... not quite right.

Four more Centurion variants out!

Novan Regulars Centurion Main Battle Tank (Aeneas) - £8.50
Image
Image
The centurion main battle tank is the most common tank used by Novan regular forces in the field a rugged and heavily armoured design it has been built to be a reliable and easy to operate vehicle capable of going long periods of time between maintenance cycles making it the perfect machine to equip Tusculum Nova’s armoured divisions.

The designs has seen many weapon fits over the years but the most common armaments (hector configuration) are a regular tank cannon in the turret backed up by a fixed forward hull mounted laser cannon. In addition the hull sides can be configured to mount a sponson weapon most commonly a HMG for close in anti personnel protection.

The Aeneas is the lighter brother of the Hector configuration. Its 120mm cannon is replaced for a lighter variant. Ironically, this weapon was originally designed to be mounted on the Warrior Infantry Fighting Vehicle as an anti-fortification weapon. This has proven very ineffective, which led the Novan military to rethink their design. The cannon was mounted on a Centurion hull, its decrease in weight gave it more speed than the other configurations. Most Centurions armed with the Aeneas configuration also sacrifice their sponson-mounted tertiary weapons to decrease even more weight, allowing it to travel faster and for longer distances.

Pack contains 3 x centurion tanks (Aeneas) with modelling options.

Novan Regulars Centurion Main Battle Tank (Agamemnon) - £8.50

In addition the hull sides can be configured to mount a sponson weapon most commonly a HMG for close in anti personnel protection.

The Agamemnon configuration is the follow-up design of the Ajax configuration. Its primary weapon is replaced for a mortar which has a much longer range than conventional Siege Cannons carried by the Ajax configuration or the Hammer Support Tank. Secondary and tertiary weapons, like the Ajax configuration, are primarily meant to take out thick armour. The Agamemnon often sees the secondary laser cannon and tertiary Plasma Cannons replaced for Microwave Projectors.

Pack contains 3 x centurion tanks (Agamemnon) with modelling options.

In addition the hull sides can be configured to mount a sponson weapon most commonly a HMG for close in anti personnel protection.

The Turnus configuration, like the Patroclus configuration, was developed during the Skinner Rebellion. Like its automatic cannons armed brother, the Turnus is highly effective against horde enemies such as the Skinnerz or civilian rebellions. But whereas the Patroclus is specialised in taking out lightly armoured targets and light vehicles, the Turnus’s purpose is to eliminate vast amounts of enemy infantry. Its Heavy rotary cannon is the big brother of multi-barrelled weapons sometimes mounted on the Novan Elites Scorpion Tank. For extra close range support against enemy infantry, commanders often replace the hull-mounted laser cannon for a flamethrower.

Pack contains 3 x centurion tanks (Turnus) with modelling options.

A more recent development within the Novan military, the Odysseus configuration uses primary and tertiary weapons normally used by the Novan Elites. Based on the Disruptor Annihilator of the Novan Elites Dominator Super Heavy Tank, the Odysseus carries a turret-mounted Heavy Disruptor Charger and two sponson-mounted Disruptor Cannons. Its secondary hull weapon is rather unconventional for the Centurion tank. Whilst most configurations are armed with laser cannons, the Odysseus carries a quick cycling pulse laser, a weapon normally reserved for the Warrior Infantry Fighting Vehicle.

Pack contains 3 x centurion tanks (Odysseus) with modelling options.
