Necron Triarch Stalker - w/ Interchangeable Weapons

Howdy Folks, So, I've continued with progress of the To-Do pile, a Necron Triarch Stalker now done. It feels good to get another one off the To-Do pile, and moar line highlighting, gotta love it. After the Ghost Ark, this was a breeze.
As my previous post about magnetizing this showed how I can interchange the under slung weapons between the Heat Ray (Melta/Flamer) and a Heavy Gauss Cannon (24in Lascannon). The main reason I painted up this beauty was to take advantage of the bonus to the surrounding blob squads of Necron Warriors, a plus 1 to BS is really handy, especially if the two 15 Warrior squads nearby are within rapid fire - any vehicle or squad will fear 60 BS5 Gauss shots coming its way!
I love the look of this vehicle, great 'stalker' tank design, with the Praetorian driver up top and the weapon below.
I added glyphs on the largest legs and posed one raised leg like it's stalking forward.
Here is a close up of the under slung weapons,firstly the Heat Ray melta type gun, short range and focused (Melta) or dispersed (Flamer) type weapon. You can just see the magnets on the flank of the weapon body to mount the Heavy Gauss Cannons. It comes with a third option of a Particle Shredder (Blast) weapon, but I foresee only using the basic Heat Ray or splashing out on the TL Heavy Gauss Cannons.
Here are the TL Heavy Gauss Cannons (Lascannon) type weapons, the Heat Ray nozzle removed and a gauss 'lens' put in its place.
Here is a frontal shot of the Triarch Stalker with the TL Heavy Gauss Cannons, ideal for Pen or Glancing heavy armour.
And from the side.
And lastly, a shot of the stowed Heat Ray nozzle, so I don't lose it.
And a shot from the tabletop, where I will be using it, amongst large squads of Warriors, boosting their effectiveness.  Thanks for dropping in. Cheers, Siph.


For the Emperor! (and other Xenos welcome...)
