First unit of Assault Intercessors! Still have five more to go. However, those will have to wait. Got a Repulsor Executioner that needs painting first.

I'll have to give these a watch a bit later. They look interesting!

I never thought this day would come. I really thought 2020 would take this from me, but jokes on it! My last order got in on December 24th!

 

So, let's get this one started!

Back in 2013, I made this bad boy. It's the Dwarven "Fury" Siege Tank for my dwarf army. Well, I kept it for a long time. I always had plans to revisit this MOC because, well... it really sucks. I mean, it's open top, the mechanics are really bad, and overall never quite matched my ideal siege tank. So, I decided to go back to my initial inspiration:

Grabbing this picture and a better idea of how to proceed, I darted off to Stud.io, and slaved away to bring you...

The Dwarven "Fury" Siege Tank 2.0

 

Bigger, badder, and just overall more pleasing to me, I'm quite proud of this one.

Compared to 1.0, this version features a much better system for fuel generation. It's easily accessible, and allows for additional tools to be stored. The only downside, as with all of the dwarven artillery, the tank has its inherent flaws. While refueling is easy, it also creates a HUGE weak spot to be exploited.

Correct faction colors have also been added! The army of Faermoore is dark red and red, not blue and gold. Though the cannon is smaller, the overall turret is just a massive upgrade. I even added a spyglass and a cloth roll for a little bit of details. A hatch was also added for easy access.

The front is no longer a terrible ram, but rather a sloped, spiked, front plate. The grills are windows, allowing the driver to see outside. As for the two red 1x3 plates, let's just say some decals are intended to go there.

OH! And MOC'ing features have also been added! Steam can come from the steam tank and the cannon can actually be shown shooting. Additionally, trans-clear pieces can be added to show ammo flying across the field. So that's another bonus!

Following my earlier system of 3-5-7 (three heavy, five medium, and seven light), three of these tanks were made to further the war effort.

 

And that's all for now! Just happy to have crossed this off of my "To-Do" List for 2020.

 

Hope you all enjoyed!

 

As always,

C&C is welcome and appreciated!

I was really hoping I'd be done with this by now. However, COVID, holidays, and USPS just being terrible in general have slowed this down a lot. For the record, all parts were ordered for the turret on December 1st and shipped on the 2nd. It is now December 18th, and I haven't seen or heard anything back. I should have suspected something when my last order total came out to $6.66.

 

Gripes aside, I'll at least provide an update.

Ya see, you'd think these are done. Well they aren't...

I am literally missing 12 U-clip tiles in reddish brown. The final order consisted of several other pieces, which I decided to dig up from my own collection rather than wait for them. Yes, I know, I could have save some $$, but I hate digging through my 40k+ pieces to find small parts (its been my collection box since I was just a little babby). Regardless, I'm pretty much stuck here unless I come up with an alternative, which I'm super tempted to do right now!

 

Ugh! And this was the last box on my, "To Do List for 2020". Once the last part mysteriously shows up, expect a full showcasing of these things, including all the neat little MOC'ing features that this thing has.
