Steam Fortress - The Vapourizer

Submitted by General Frank
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
After the invention of the Steam Tank an the Siege Engine, the technicians and engineers decided to create a vehicle that suits all purposes, rather than specialising on one or two field. After revising old blue prints and plan of ancient Dwarven and Gnomish machines, the a new vehicle was born: The Steam Fortress.
The Steam Fortress packs a lot of fire power and is durable enough to sustain the worst damage. On the threaded and steam-powered full is a sheer array of weapon systems: Two heavy steam cannons, a pair of high calibre chain guns and a rocket launcher pod makes this vehicle the best Steam unit of the field.

Give credits if you use it in your campaign/map, DON'T distribute to other sites and DON'T edit without my permission.
Have fun with the model.

P.S.: Thanks to Elenai for giving me the idea of adding 'geeky 1900's gas lamps' to it.

12:31, 12th Oct 2008 Cavman: Tested, works. A epic sized tank. Should probably scale it up to 1.5 or bigger to get across the true feeling of ginormousness. Approved.

    Looks like an overly massive and gay version of The_Mechanic's Kronous model. http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/models.php?id=maic0v
    Not very original frank, cool, but not original. Also the execution on this model's animations and overall look is sub par. 3.5/5

    -Edit: I guess I can't rate it 3.5/5. So I rounded it down to 3

    ...Does that mean that you would permit me to use it in a map (with the credit of course) by adding another texture?

    Scalewise, this model crushes the Koronus with one tread.

    This is one of the best seige tank models I've seen on here, and it could also be a mobile town hall as well. Exelent work, has several uses, all of whch usually nvolve stuff going boom :D

    off topic but:

    count of dwarven/gnomish gold-plated, blue-window-glass models is at 12893109283109. anybody wanna make GOBLIN mechs....

    dwarven/gnomish gold-plated, blue-window-glass style gets old...

    GOBLINS are the ones with all the wacky add-ons like SMILEY STICKERS, lasers, shrink rays, SHEEP BOMBS... etc.

    Has anybody thought of this as the "Robogoblin/avatar/metamorphasis" form of the Battle Tank? I certainly would use it if I had such a unit.

    Epic Tank

    Medium Filesize.


    I'm going to present this model later in the battletanks forum and see what they think about it. Your previous tank model was awesome enough to be tested in a beta version, it will very likely be added in the real Battle tanks map.

    This tanks does also have similar chance, but I cannot say for certain now if it's going to be implemented. 50/50 maybe...


    It's awesome enough to get 5/5 and a rep+.

    This model has some extremely gay animations. You need to work on them, Frank.
