Warhammer Leman Russ Tank by Mellanius Warhammer Leman Russ Tank by Mellanius
This is a animated sprite for upcoming my greatest pixel-art scene. It is still WiP=)
My eyes... it's very hard to make pixel-art=)

The Leman Russ Demolisher or simply Demolisher is a variant of the Imperial Guard Leman Russ Battle Tank in the Warhammer 40,000 tabletop game. Appearance-wise, the tank is extremely similar to the standard Leman Russ, except for some extra armour plating and weaponry. The Demolisher replaces the standard Battle Cannon with the more powerful but shorter-ranged Demolisher Cannon.

The Demolisher first officially appeared as a supplement for the second edition of Warhammer 40,000 in 1995, but has been retained in every Imperial Guard Codex since then. A boxed set was released during the second edition days, consisting of a plastic Leman Russ kit with additional metal parts to convert it into a Demolisher. The boxed set contained an entire Leman Russ kit, plus enough metal parts to replace the turret gun with the Demolisher Cannon assembly. Metal sponsons were also included with the set, with interchangeable Plasma Cannon and Multimelta barrels.

While it was introduced in Warhammer 40,000, the Demolisher also appears in the Epic 40,000 tabletop game. Outside of the tabletop games, the Demolisher appears in at least one derivative video game of the Warhammer 40,000 franchise. The player can field squadrons of Demolishers in the turn-based strategy game Final Liberation

Fun fact, the Leman Russ was originally designed as an artillery tractor. And the Baneblade was meant to be a light tank.

Спасибо. К сожалению в паре мест не удалось синхронизировать анимацию. А переделывать было уже лень

Demolishers are my favourite Russ variant. I always field two of them, no sponsons and a hull mounted heavy flamer to make things close and personal. :D :+fav: Great animation!
