So, I got bored with my old Citadel Heavy tank. It wasn't as "clean" as I would've liked. So I decided to build a different bigyellowtank on the suspension.

Now I don't have the tracks to make anything I could call a "Super Death Tank" or a "Super Heavy Death Tank" without the inch lawyers bitching about the thing lacking a few inches Hurrrrr (Collette, I'm looking right at you, wherever you are, I'm looking straight at you right now, okay.)

So, I decided I'd try something different. The Kingdom of Yellow (or whatever I called it two years ago) presents the Siege Tank Mk1; the "Tor".

(Now featuring Valiant's backpack storage method and this sledgehammer build: https://www.flickr.com/photos/razumikhin/356471576/ )

I had to tear up the Slugger assault gun to get the yellow, but I'm okay with that, because the slugger was getting dated and I can have a go at a new build with the wheels. I used some of the other parts to update the Pugilist  armoured car, which I'm quite happy with (so more pics coming soon).

Image

Dat ass though.

More fun inside...

Nothing constructive to add. I just want to compliment it.

I have plans, even if it's too tall to shoot most stuff with it's main siege cannon, I will find a way.

Nice job on the build! Maybe add a couple extra machine guns, but other than that, she's a great tank.

I wanted it to be a bit vulnerable to infantry, so as to promote the "run at it with explosives" mentality. Having said that, ther'es plenty of flat space on top for whatever infantry support teams you want...

Okay so I've a few more builds now, when I get around to taking pictures of them all that is.

I'll start with the most recent one, I tore up the Warrior tank to make an equally yellow and slightly more compact tank:

Image

After grievous losses in the Kingdom of Yellow's tank corps and an emerging fashion for smaller tanks (wait 'till you see the other builds) the kingdom began to recruit minors into its tank detachments.

Pictured are Tim (L) and Gareth (R) standing next to their new tank, the Humpy Hippo III. They're one man down after their driver was immolated in the destruction of the Humpy Hippo II.

Image

The Kingdom's brightest 8 year-olds are recruited into the tank academy to crew tanks with more modest interior space and for their reckless will to advance without infantry support.
After graduating a year later, the life of a child-tanker is one of sex and danger, these guys often get in excess of three valentines cards a year and can be found behind the bike shed...

Deatils anyone?

Image

Edited this one pretty hard, it came out all blurry,

Image

Ridiculously tall, brightly coloured, various underpowered armaments, and with a flag attached... with actually two flags... very proud.

So I also made this a long time back but never posted it, some of you might've seen it in the chat.

So then, I still have other stuff after this but we'll see as to when that gets uploaded. I made this one today, I keep on stumbling over pictures of lego elephants and being like "hey, I have two of those". It goes quite nicely with my eastern-Imperial dudes who were kinda neglected 'till recently, most of my infantry is completely different to when I first started, and I probably need to redo a whole summary for all my forces again. But I CBA.

Being honest, I can't really call to mind any armoured elephant/elephant tank designs that really satisfy me, most of them are "house stuck on an elephant" designs, and the others are mostly clunky efforts at trying to give elephants armour plating, which is always going to be difficult when you're pairing the organic shape of the elephant piece and the straight lines and hard edges of standard lego. Anyways, here is my attempt, Red Nelly:

Image
The Red Nelly tank features  working suspension, all acomplished without any springs or technic pieces. I'm a genius.

Image
The netting prevents boarding parties and is useful for carrying cargo or friendly troops. It also adds extra pazazz.

I have another elephant in dark grey, so I'll have to think of another take on this for the second one.

I'm looking forward to trying this out in a brikwar, the mixture of elephant and tank in one is promising. Oh wait but I've got school in two days, maybe another time.

This elephant. I love it. The first time I looked at it something seemed off, but every time I looked at it I liked it more and now, now I just love it. The only suggestion I could make here is if you have a couple extra chains that could reach, would be to maybe add a pair that strap down under the chest of the elephant from those two exposed studs on the side.

Thanks, I get you here, I did actually see if I could do the thing with chains under it's belly but they're too long and just scrape off the floor. I do agree that it could use something to make it seem attached all the way round, as it doesn't seem quite as fluent a transition from elephant to turret as I first thought. But it is supposed to look awkward and dorky so it's not all bad there, perhaps you just need a bit of exposure to adjust to the intentional spackyness.
