They look delicious

That's their grand plan: lure the enemy in by appealing to their base instincts for festive delights and brutally murder everyone as they approach to take a bite. This will surely reap great benefits, should they ever face the Great Devourer in battle.

Woah, DG for a change! Whipped up one Levi I had had in the pile for ages together with some suitably regular humans for scale.

Why not mount the additional missiles atop the pre-existing hunter-killer missile launcher? You can justify their presence by claiming they're frag and/or flakk missiles, allowing the Leviathan to deal with a miriad of threats.

The infantryman being crushed in the venerable battle-brother's close combat weapon is a good touch.

Warhammer 40,000+ Star Wars- Rian Johnson- Reylo= AWESOME! (Knights of Renaissance)

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

Visual curiosity, for the most part. The piece itself was also unevenly slanted, like the curved armour Levis' have, prompting a placement that looks a bit more ad hoc than piling it on the phosphex launcher.

An alternative mounting point for the missile launchers (though admittedly one that exposes them to damage when the Leviathan is forced to engage in close combat) is on the autocannon's side- see how the missile launchers are mounted directly on the PGZ-95 flak tank's autocannon's here.

He begins:

I'm not sure if he's festive just 'cause it's the season, or because he just hasn't yet swam through the weathering bucket in any way :D

And he's done, a quick bash to cap the year's painting. Clicking the pictures open into full size recommended for details!
