Thunder Thunder Thunder Thunderbolts!

Edit Post

I finished these up last week in preparation for NEAT. I forgot how quick 6mm tanks and the like paint up, these took 2-3 hours each. I have some Marauders that are close to done as well, I held off though as I wanted to put some lascannons on them.
