Using the "Epic 40K Basilisk" designed by BiancaW and the "Epic Scale Wyvern Suppression Tank v2" designed by Mkhand_Industries I put together this Basilisk model that I feel will fit in well with the other vehicles designed by Mkhand_Industries. It is currently scaled for Epic 40K. If you would like to scale it appropriately for use in 28mm Warhammer 40k I recommend up-scaling the model by 513.75%. I prefer to print all of my models and tanks in a single print if possible, so this is currently designed as such. I hope you all enjoy the model and please share any pictures of the print!
The Basilisk is the standard self-propelled artillery piece of the Astra Militarum in the 41st Millennium, and is also the most common artillery piece used by the Imperial armed forces across the galaxy. The Basilisk is produced in vast numbers on all of the known Forge Worlds in the Imperium, and almost every Astra Militarum regiment maintains several in their arsenal.
The Basilisk uses the same versatile and rugged chassis used by the Chimera armoured personnel carrier, and retains all of its features with the exception of its troop compartment, which is replaced with the Basilisk's main gun and gunnery platform. There are several different patterns of Basilisk tanks produced on different Forge Worlds, such as the Armageddon and Vanaheim Patterns, which offer enclosed crew compartments to help protect the gunnery crew from small arms fire. A Basilisk with an enclosed crew compartment is incapable of firing as far as the open-topped version, due to the recoil restrictions of the enclosed crew compartment.
