The Grendel is a line breaker designed to smash holes in an opponent's defence, trampling men and fortifications alike under its huge treads. Armed with a heavy assault cannon to deal with infantry the Grendel is capable of laying waste to entire squads in scant seconds. Featuring a transport capacity of twelve men plus equipment, it is ideal for punching a hole in the enemy defences and then deploying troops to hold the ground.

The DarkFire Knights currently use the Grendel to transport regular infantry from A to B on the battlefield as well as Line breaking when the need arises

Design Notes
Yes its a Bawkse
I basically stuck my old Bawkse onto this bigger chassis, turret comes from a Chima set. I have plans for a radar station of some description to be mounted on the back to fill the empty space.

Comments and criticism are appreciated!

Maybe it would help to make the treads less exposed on that APC or even giving the turret more armor.
Other than that, I really like the idea of a giant moving fortress, rolling through heavy fortifications and spewing out shitloads of figs.

I'll start armouring up the turret soon, though I'm not to keen on the turret itself. I had an idea for armouring up the tracks I'll meddle with it and post some pictures.

I too am a user of the 'giant box" transports  :D
Best way to fit the top amount of figs.

Like Duerer said, the treads could use a bit less exposure, but I kinda like how it looks like a giant snow vehicle.

Of course since it's brikwars: Moar dakka

I like the boxy design but suggest a bit of greebling on top. Draw some of the attention away from all of the exposed studs. Overall though, it's cool looking.
