Disclaimer/Credits
5th February 2016 - Changed the design a little bit to go along better with my other models.


The Lore
The sturdy Iron Hussar combat tank is the workhorse on the battlefield of the Iron Empire. Build es masse, the tank was developed to be a reliable and affordable force to be reckoned with. Featuring medium armour, a 105mm cannon and deadly armour-piercing round, the tank is best used against heavily armoured and fortified foes of the Iron Empire. So, roll out and put these gun to good use, Kamerad!


The Dev Log
After using the tinker tank texture for the main body of my tanks for literally years now, I wanted to try out something new. I wanted to do something inspired by Wolfenstein tech. So I went with a dark steel texture, glowing orange windows and some leather and brass looking stuff. Add a good measure of WH40K design into it and you got this one. I think for a first try it turned out quite good. I also tried some new animation techniques.


Icons made my ~Nightmare
~Nightmare made awesome icons for this model. Check it out!

    I personally think there is too much going on when the tank starts its walk animation. I'd just reduce the amount of smoke particles that come out of its exhaust, but other than that, this looks great! The dark steel texture looks great and it really stands out from your other tanks.

    Cool as a light tank, useful with workers inside (modern milicias)

    Looks amazing!

    The only downside is the TC parts. When they're black colored they look dark green.

    How about an actual Hussar? :p
    EDIT:I feel there is no need to say "Omg so awesome" when it is made by Mr.Frank.
