I have been waiting for this model for a long time. I’m glad DreamForge was finally able to to get it made.
I painted this model in the Eisenkern colour scheme.
from the Dreamforge website
“the Eisenkern Crusader, is widely regarded as the finest piece of military equipment ever produced. Found in every faction’s arsenal, at over 200 years old, the design is still innovative. Independent households often barter away vast planetary resources to acquire a Crusader as these Leviathans lend credibility and prestige to the households standing within its parent faction. Rightfully so, as a faction ruler knows that when the household is called upon to fight they will answer with a very capable force. Eisenkern uses this Leviathan as a powerful bartering chit with the Brotherhood. Tithing ten per year to the order, they have managed to make themselves indispensable. This often gains Eisenkern an unfair advantage in dispute resolution with other factions.”
