It is a bit larger than a Leman Russ.

I like the eye work on that cat. Although I do think that it could use a little more highlighting on the back area. :wink:

Really nice paint job :)

Is the model a conversion jobby, or is it from Forge World or something? Just wondering because its an awesome model :)

The model is a Forge World piece.

It comes standard with 5 heavy bolters and can go up to 7
It is a super heavy, so it can fire every weapon at a different squad.
It is slightly easier to penetrate its armor than a Leman Russ on the front, but it has structure points so it is harder to kill.

The history of the Malcador is basically that it is named after Malcador the Sigilite.

In the History of 40k, the Malcador is a much older design than the Leman Russ. Most Malcadors are almost relics for the companies that have them.

Sorry everyone, but since my honor as a competitor has been called into question for offering constructive criticism on models, I feel honor bound to remove this model from consideration.

Thank you everyone for the nice comments.

I hope this proves to you that I had no ill intentions in offering the constructive critcism Jawaballs.
