Another Tempest Heavy Grav-Tank

Finished up just in time for my next game of Apocalypse! (Just need to finish up the last one and they can be fielded as a complete Super Heavy Detachment!)

An Eldar Tempest Heavy Grav-Tank from Armorcast.

Another View

The two of them together!

The next one will have a light turquoisy-blue...

Here they are with a few other models to get a sense of scale. At some point I might make a base for them and raise them off the ground a touch to look a little bigger/taller and like they're floating a little bit...?

Coming Soon to Tim's Miniature Wargaming Blog:

I played a game of Apocalypse last night with Other Tim and another one this afternoon with Orion... so hopefully I'll get some game reports posted for those...

After that...? I think I'll crank out the last Tempest and THEN I'll get cracking on some Necromunda. I'd wanted to start a (trail) campaign THIS weekend so I could wrap it up before September when I play to run another with a few more people...


  1. Nice work!

    I do like the blue and green one more, but that's just a personal preference for those colors. The other one with the one (orange and purple?) may be good camouflage for some alien worlds. Both are painted well.

    A stand sounds like a good idea, for appearance's sake at least.

    1. Cheers!

      The base colour on all of them is Army Painter "Alien Purple". The contrast between that and the orange is a little more... vivid...(?) than I'd imagined... I'm sure I'll get over it - generally I like orange and purple as a colour combination. And, after all those coats of orange I had to put on, I'm NOT repainting it!!! (Seriously, orange is the WORST! Just never enough pigment in those paints! What was I thinking!?)

    2. Ah. Well, I don't always see colors well. Yeah, orange is often one of the worst colors for getting good coverage. :P

    3. Or it's just computers. It looks more blue than it is in real life on my computer as well...

  2. Love it! So lovely and crisp. And just to balance things up I reckon I like the orange and purple better!

  3. Nice paint job. You had me fooled because my initial thought was "Hasn't Tim already posted about this tank before?"

    I like the green one better. But if the aliens they are fighting are colour-blind along the red-green perspective, they might not see much of a difference between the two.

    1. Thanks!

      Well, to give you a bit of warning and prevent further confusion, there will be ANOTHER one in a couple days... it will be purple and blue.

      Yeah who knows how other species see and how they see them? Maybe they can see the Octarine I mixed in there!?
