Bigger chassis. More ridiculous turret. Bugger the sponsons. Needs a dozer. You have NO IP issues with this tank as it a kv -2 IN SPACE

I'd say it actually looks a bit more like a Churchill VII, at least to my eye. Add a four feet tall turret though, and you're onto a KV monster alright. Either way, I cannot see how that resembles anything more than historical tanks IN SPACE.

Carry on with the awesome.

I do like the overall design ... maybe a little too big of a "shell trap" under the turret ... but it's a pretty solid machination, IMO ... 8)

The first version of the tank had a bigger turret and lower hull:

The hull's height was increased and turret slightly shrunk at request. I could make the hull slightly bigger (longer and wider) and increase the turret's height and width. Kinda depends on MoreDakka's preference also. :)

You don't get much more ludicrous than a 152mm howitzer on a turret like that.

Yup. The KV-2 was so OG grim-dark that GW straight stole it.

good idea for a range filler, i think i'd drop the sponsons and lose the slope on the top of the turret

Make two versions of turrets, KV-1 and KV-2, voila, problem solved and more 6mm goodies for everyone. ;D

More versions of the turret would be tricky, as it would greatly increase production costs. And for a unit that isn't that common, this might not be the greatest idea.

The sponsons are removable, and I could ditch the slope on the turret, that way keeping it very blocky. :)

I continued working on the tank, made the chassis wider. Made the turret blockier and wider. Also started working on a few more details.

Next step is to increase the length of the chassis a bit (looks way to much like a square block to me right now) and increase the turret's height slightly.

How about moving the center of the turret more to the back?
So the weight seems more naturally distributed.

I've elongated the chassis and increased the turret's height:

We felt that the hull became a little bit too big, so I've decreased the width of the tracks and returned to the original length of the chassis. Kept the bigger turret though.

However, I will probably increase the length of a chassis a tiny bit:
