I built it myself - the vulcan mega bolter wus plasticard and plastic pipings (small that is...), and the twin plasma blasters wer terminator flamers (deathwing army!) with the barrels replaced with plasma weapon nozzels. In all, it cost about £35-45, pluse the 4 flamers from the terminator boxed sets...

not bad really then, for an uber tank,well ifyou take the costs into consideration then you might not get it...
Yeah, but, if your like me, you always have spares, like my deathwin amy, i have 5 units of termis, and a termi command squad lead by a chaplain, all my squads had assault cannons, so i had 6 heavy flamers+ those from my other marines. I also had lots of plasticard and plastic tubing left over from a scenary set i made (factory),and u get 5 plasmapistols i an old assault squad set, and 10 in the blood claws box, so i had plenty left over! The helios was two cyclone missile launchers converted to look like 1 big one (leftovers frmo the termis), and i was going to by a Land RAider anyway for my Deathwing to ride around in, it was only when Rik (a fellow GW staffer - almost full time unlike me!) asked me if i was taking part in the great tank battle to see if we could beat the FRench, i agreed, and he suggested that all GW staffers at aberdeen make a tank with the VD rules, so i did
Sweeeet, any other ideas comin' up soon , not that i'll see them over here in Canada. Also, this is an odd question but, is there an Adeptus Mechanicus army because that would be cool with loads of tanks and skitarii(spelling?) infantry.But , do the mech adepts ever convert( talking in the 40k galaxy sense) or are they play by the rules kinda guys( well guy/robo-dude)?
the mechanicus can be made using the imperial gaurd traits, or using a armoured company list, either way adding a inquisitor and retinue would be a good way to incorporate a machien god *priest* into the army :D:D:D
There is a Cult Mechanicus armylist up somewhere, trygoogling it. But it qwould mainly be Bs 4 guard wl carapcaadearmour, hellguns, sharpshooters and hardenedvets upgrades, with chimera/rhino apc for em andlots of techpriests and tanks!!
