A single super-heavy tank is a dominant presence in an Astra Militarum battle line. As it ploughs inexorably forward it lays down a wide path of destruction. Enemy ranks shatter long before it reaches their position, and those unlucky few who are able to maintain their defensive formations are ground to paste under the slab-like plates of its tracks. The Baneblade is the most common variant of super-heavy tank. Its primary weapon – the fearsome baneblade cannon – is capable of delivering apocalyptic bombardments at a terrifying range.
This model kit allows you to make the Baneblade tank as described in the Apocalypse rulebook. The sponsons are armed with twin-linked heavy bolters, and the turret is equipped with infantry shredding Baneblade Cannon. A Demolisher cannon is included as the secondary gun because, let’s face it, there is no such thing as too many weapons.
Aerials, artillery shells, smoke launchers, searchlights, tools, name plates, pintle-mounted heavy stubbers, and a co-axial autocannon are all available as additional modelling options. On top of this you also get 3 optional turret-mounted crew who come with a variety of heads, arms and weaponry, allowing you to make an officer, driver or gunner (of course you can always glue the turret shut should you wish). And finally, there are enough parts for you to make an Imperial Guard officer on foot as well.
This plastic kit contains 295 components (no, that isn’t a typo) to make an Imperial Guard Baneblade. Alternatively, you can also make a Banehammer, Banesword, Stormhammer, Hellhammer, Shadowsword, Stormlord or Stormsword super-heavy tank using this kit. Also included is 1 Transfer Sheet which can be used to add markings and insignia.
This kit comes supplied unpainted and requires assembly.
