Right finally time for some pictures first up a Revenant battle tank. These were supplied by the Daemon forge world of Miconis IV, as part of the deal the 888th struck for a decade of service to the Dark Mechinacus overlords of Miconis, after the division’s Leman Russ were lost during their escape from the Inquisition.
The Revenant tank is an old design built on only a few Forge worlds across the Imperium. Miconis IV was the man forge world producer before it was pulled into the Eye of Terror. The main reason for this is that the Revenant’s STC providence was hotly contested. The tech priests of Miconis put the tank into production and sold the rights to other forge worlds claiming they had proof that the Revenant was STC a claim hotly contested by some other forge worlds.
The Revenant tank is comparable in design and performance to the Leman Russ. It has a lower profile body than a Russ which makes side sponsons impossible to fit. Paradoxically the Revenant has a larger turret making it easier to crew the battle cannon and, allegedly, increase the battle cannons rate of fire.
So this kit is basically a 1/48 scale Hobby Boss soviet world war two KV-2 tank with a few 40k touches from the chaos vehicle sprue and a spare Leman Russ battle cannon from ebay. Red paint job with some weathering and bobs your uncle.
