Most people will be familiar with what a Leviathan is. Several 28mm scale scratch-builds have appeared over the years and lets face it, the damn thing is pretty representative of the absurdity of most Imperial war machine designs.
This thing is a mobile fortress, armed with a massive doomsday cannon, a battle cannon for all round defense, and a broadside of lascannons to deter smaller armored enemies.
However, it is ponderous, highly visible and impossible to hide. It just sits there and trusts its void shields and heavy armour to fend off enemy attacks. A visible manifestation of the invincibility of the Imperium.
I especially like this image because of the banner. This Leviathan belongs to the Necromunda VIIth. I cant recall a single mention of these guys in the fluff, but there is quite a lot about the Necromunda VIIIth, nicknamed the 'Spiders', and actually my own guard army contains several members of that regiment. I am quite glad this Leviathan belongs to the former, because I don't fancy repainting anything of mine this shade of yellow.
Next week, I'll mix it up with something Orky, Eldar or Chaos.
