WiP (40K): Tread bare tanks

I am a bit keen on Forge world. When they were doing their guard range I was a bit fanatical.  Since they have moved on to the Marine range my wallet gets a badly needed break.  My current go-to tournament list is a Wagon Waaagh which includes a Kill blasta battle tank which counts as a battlewagon. Unfortunately individual resin track links, while they look cool, fall apart quicker than my no spending pledges. After the fourth time gluing them back on I decided to strip them for something more robust for game play.
