I suddenly decided that I needed to have a Stormlord in my Squat army but I didn't think that the existing Stormlord looked like it could house 40 troops so I thought... "I know, I'll build a Leviathan that counts as a Stormlord".

To cut a long story short, here's where I am at the moment. Most of the structure is finished but I need to add the drivetrain, track guards, side sponsons, weapons and details:

So much more to do... but it's getting there :) .

In order to carry on with the build, it was necessary to attach the wheels and tracks so that I could work out dimensions:

Now that they are fitted, I can start thinking about the track guards and side sponsons. With the side sponsons in mind, I decided it would be easier to just order the Baneblade sponsons because it would give me all the weapons and a means of fitting them (even if I converted things a bit) so I have ordered one of these and am waiting for its arrival:

In the meantime, I can start filling and sanding if I need to :) .

I've got no idea about tanks or the fluff these are based on but it's all very impressive and professional looking.
Good job. 8)

They were introduced in miniature form for Epic 40000 back in the day, super heavy mobile fortresses https://warhammer40k.fandom.com/wiki/Leviathan
and as you rightly say Inso's work is fantastic 8)

Keep 'em coming and keep it going Inso, no idea why more people don't comment but pleased you are keeping enjoyable content flowing

I suppose I don't comment more because there are only so many ways I can say I stand in awe of the skill and quality involved. I know bugger all about the game this stuff is designed for, I only know the figures make me feel 'WOW!'

If it were historical work I'd be impressed but as this requires imagination as well as technical expertise I'm gobsmacked. Not a word I use often, especially in respect of wargaming figures.
Great stuff Inso - definitely keep going.
