TX79 Hammerhead Interceptor Gunship
A variant of the standard Hammerhead Gunship designed to lead frontline assaults. The open cockpit, combined with the the expanded sensor suite at the front of the tank, allows both the Tank gunner to swiftly react to all approaching threats and the commanding Shas'vre to coordinate Tau armour for the battle.
I may have went a bit overboard on my first tank. This is intended to represent my Longstrike model when I get a few tanks in my army. Model is of course just a Hammerhead with a Stormsurge cockpit on top, idea taken from Ironsky from this thread
. Sensors at the front are from the squadron command frame sprue.
I'm not fully happy with how I've done the edges with greenstuff but I'm new to this and I think I did this as good as I could have. Still need the bits for the cockpit consoles to finish doing assembling the cockpit and put in the pilots. The axis the turret is turning on is just a large one of those cylinders that take up space in the sprues (not sure what they're called) with two bits of plasticard superglued onto it. I drilled a matching hole into where the Stormsurge's head goes to fit it.
