That landship is a hell of a lot cooler than any STD.  Nice work!

A certain member named Brickviller would like to have a word with you.

If you're looking for a plane-shitting tank (aka keldoclock) Roc made one.

Nope, this is still cooler.  The originality breaks up the monotony of looking at everyone's awesome tanks all week, so it becomes better.  Much of the time creativity>what everyone else is doing, which makes things like this more enjoyable to look at.

C'mon, his Gertrude tank has such a ridiculously sized gun-that amount of dakka can't be trumped. The land ship is awesome but admit it- it could use moar Dakka.

But it still is merely a tank, no matter how awesome it is.  Why build a generic tank when you could have something like this?

Thanks for all the C&C.  This is probably going to be the last update in a while, as I'm going back to college tomorrow, but boy is it a big one.

Image
A squad of T.L.A. troops scout the surface of their now-occupied homeworld.  Hidden sensors have reported no Britannian incursions into this area, so they are fairly confident...

Image
...until a single missile strike destroys their transport.

Image
The troops are well-trained, and quickly redeploy themselves in the direction the missile came from.  Suspecting an aerial threat, they call in support, and an Hr-37 streaks overhead at low altitude...

Image
...only to get blown apart by an implausibly accurate burst of flak.

Image
The T.L.A. soldiers hear the roar of turbine engines and look up.  The silhouette of their mysterious assailant is the last thing they see...
Image

Image
The Vulcan bomber is Britannia's latest weapon in the war against the T.L.A.  Although it can't match the speed of the enemy's infernally fast aircraft, its large wings and refined aerodynamics grant it exceptional agility for its size, and its nose mounted flak cannon allows it to annihilate enemy aircraft at long range.

Image
In its current configuration, the aircraft carries two Skyflash air-to-ground missiles and one Grand Slam bomb on each wing.  The missiles are primarily used to eliminate ground-based AA weaponry, while the flak cannon deals with fighters; the Vulcan is then free to deploy its massive Grand Slam bombs against enemy tanks, fortifications, or massed infantry.  

Image
With its huge wings, the Vulcan is as wide as a Conqueror-class land battleship is long.  

Image
Image
The Vulcan's engine array is nothing to boast about, but it is reasonably fast and fully space capable.  

Image
Landed.  The rear wheels share space in the bomb bay with the ordnance, which has made it difficult for me to put any really large weapons in there.  I'll redesign the bomb bay a bit when I get back.  

Image
My heavy weapons infantry got something of a makeover.  Their shields are now integrated into their weapons, and the Steam Gatling gunner has a proper steam-engine backpack.  
Image

Image
Whole army shot: Three massive vehicles and about 9 minifigs with weapons... yeah, sounds about right.
