This Church Finally Means Business :)

We like this on so many levels... First, there is pretty cool gothic church structure to begin with; second - it's obviously pacifist, with "spread mercy, not war" idea. Third, it has the anti-"organized religion" connotations: do not force your beliefs on anybody. Behold,
"Church Tank" by Kris Kuksi:

The idea to combine tank with some kind of an altar seem to have occurred to various people. The folks at Blue Table Painting, led by Insidious created this conversion of Land Raider for Warhammer game.

The same idea's occurred to Wim Delvoye here, though it's a digger, not a tank:

The Land Raider is from the "Warhammer 40000" Sci-Fi gaming system (or WH40K for short). "Warhammer" is a fantasy gaming system.
