I've been playing around with a banner for this blog for the past two days. I got the idea after reading about it on 'Suneoken's' post on the 'Pathfinder' blog (many thanks to Dverning for finding this again for me, I'd lost the identity of that blog & post) . Anyways, depending on who has been viewing and when, some of you may have seen various banners pop in & out. I kinda like this one but I gotta ask, is it a bit too much? Over-powering, etc? I wanted to use my Battlewagon, but I think the model might just be too tall.
I dunno, as indecisive as I tend to be this banner may just be the first of many.
'Da Matilda' is my Battlewagon. It predates the current GW model by several years, instead being designed around the old Ork codex. In the old dex, zzap guns hit automatically so were far better than in their current form. The tank is relatively slow (futile as it often is, I still shoot the zzap gun every turn), a bunch of boyz can ride on top, its heavily armored and the zzap gun (with its variable strength & BS 2) makes for an abysmal offensive weapon. So rather oddly, the fighting characteristics of this Matilda are really little different from the Matildas of WWII.
Here's the first banner, which was removed, but is kinda necessary for this post)
