Executioners Whirlwind

This Whirlwind was a gift from Dardreg Gargant and has been sitting on my shelf for a while. Not because I don't like the model but just because I've never needed it for my army. However, the new Armored Task Force needs a lot of tanks, and the Whirlwind is a perfect addition. I'm also gaining a new appreciation for artillery due to the Thunderfire Cannons.

Even so, I'm not sure how often I'll use a Whirlwind, so some flexibility would be helpful. Therefore, I magnetized the top hatch so it could be used as a Rhino as well. You can never have enough Rhinos, especially with the Battle Company's free transports.

Other than the fact that the door on the right side of the Rhino can't open because there's a chain across it, I think it makes for a nice looking Rhino (the fifth for my Executioners).

Next up will be another tank for the Executioners.


  1. Nice work. The rhino door looks awesome! Whirlwinds in that one formation are pretty nasty, but I feel that thunderfires still dish out the pain a lot better.

  2. Thanks!

    I definitely think that the Thunderfire is better than the Whirlwind one-on-one, but I'm not sure once you take points into account. 3 Whirlwinds for cheaper than 2 Thunderfires is a tempting trade, and the Whirlwinds do have a single real advantage in that one of their rounds is AP4. Against certain armies, that will make a huge difference.
