Hey, folks. SinSynn here.
Just a quick Thursday night post...Cuz why not?
I've been thinking about tanks a lot lately. Leman Russes, in particular. Cuz they're awesome.
And yeah, yeah- I know: SinSynn's been 'thinking' again. This is never good.
Well...maybe I have been, umm...doin' that thing...that you just said, but maybe I haven't. So nyah.
Ok...wait. This post has gone awry in like, record time.
Hold on a sec. Lemme get my lil' N-Scale Train of Thought back on it's tracks...
Right. Like I was sayin'....
|* In the grim darkness of the far future, we'll all be driving retro WWI tanky-tanks cuz apparently that's the only version someone actually made an STC for. If you squint it's not completely awkward lookin'...Sigh- yeah. Yeah it is *|
I've also been building my Stormlord (that was what I was sayin,' right?), and wow- what an amazing kit. I literally got stuck just staring at the sprues, then fondling them for a while in an impure manner. Wadda friggin' monster that thing is, man (and yes...that is what she said. Boom). Ermahgerd, iz so sexy.
The tank I mean.
Anywho...you can't just go and grab any old Leman Russ variant, toss it into the mix, and expect to get a reasonable return on your investment without a plan. Like any other important unit in any other 40k army, due consideration must be given to synergy- how does this giant-ass, gun-toting beast of adamantium and plasteel fit into my army? Waddo I want it to do?
That's what I've been thinkin' about, and in a strange twist of fate I ran into a random fellow 40k hobbyist playin' World of Tanks the other night. We ended up chatting for quite some time about that old, quirky-lookin,' pug-faced, so-ugly-only-a-modeler-could-love-it, iconic Imperial hooptie, the Leman Russ.
