Predator Executioner Conversion


Drive me closer so I can punch that Ork!

I’ve really wanted a Leman Russ Executioner for ages but you know… that’s an Imperial Guard thing. When I found the rules from Forge World I totally had to jump on that one! I’m really not a fan of the pre-heresy style so the Forge World model was a no for me and I set about converting my own.

THE CONVERSION!

KITS/BITS I USED:

  • Baal Predator Boxset
  • Leman Russ Executioner Plasma Gun
  • Vindicator Extra Armour Side Plates
  • Chimera Dozer blade

PROCESS:

  1. Build Predator
  2. Lop off the gun mantlet
  3. Cut off the Leman Russ mounting bits from the Plasma Gun
  4. Stick Plasma Gun to gun mantlet
  5. Slap the Vindicator side panels on
  6. Add 1 angry Power Fist Templar
  7. Sprinkle with angry dust
  8. Have a cup of tea

PLANS ON USING IT!

Firstly, why no sponsons? Well, I have a Predator Annihilator, I often have it moving, in which case the sponsons are always snapfiring, or I have it sat in a ruin, in which case one or both of the sponsons can’t see over the wall its hiding behind. Either way, they’re really not effective. My Templar force is quite mobile so I wanted this Predator to be mobile… I can’t snapfire the Plasma Destroyer so I just left the sponsons at home and used the points elsewhere. Meltabombs for my Sword Brothers for example. Couple of flamers here and there. Way better.

Dozer blade…. ftw! I dont want this beast getting stuck on a stupid wall!

Plasma Cannon! Hell yes! Whole reason for this tank, 3 blasts and no Gets Hot!… total win!

HAVING USED IT

So far this tanks has been in 2 games:

  1. Got blown up after 1 round of shooting… boo! :( it did knock a couple of wounds off a Trygon though!
  2. Rolled double 1 for dangerous terrain caused by Iron Hands Thunderfire… FREAKING KIDDING ME!?!

So I’m not onto a winner yet… I think its because everyones scared of it… at least that leaves my Templars free to get up close and personal.
