Something that I drew that turned out pretty well.

Are their tanks ever described in enough detail to draw them?

Vaguely similar to T-72s, iirc. The Race are more or less late Vietnam-early 80s level of military tech.

About ten meters long, fifty tonnes, powered by a hydrogen burning engine and armed with a heavy 120mm autoloaded smoothbore cannon, a coaxial heavy machine gun and a pintle mounted general purpose machine gun, Landcruisers are the primary offensive armored fighting vehicle of The Race. These vehicles are based off designs from the final wars of unification on Home (the Homeworld of The Race and capital of their Empire) some 50,000 years ago, since then the designs had been subtly modified and refined in preparation for the three time it had use for such craft during the Conquest of Rabotev II, Halless I and Tosev-III. As both Rabotev-II and Halless-I were inhabited by preindustrial civilizations Landcruiser forces were more than sufficient to swiftly obliterate any native resistance and ensuring said world's integration into The Empire. Such a swift victory was anticipated for the Conquest of Tosev-III, though unfortunately the Conquest Fleet uncovered the rapid rate of Tosevite technological progress.

Among other unexpected things Tosevite forces (in particular those of the SSSR, Deutsche Reich and United States) had forces landcruisers of their own. Crude, unreliable, sluggish affairs powered by feeble hydrocarbon burning engines and armed with inaccurate low power cannons, but landcruisers never the less. In most situations the Conquest Fleet's Landcruisers were more than a match for those of the Tosevite Empires and Non-Empires during the initial fighting, though due to inexperience in armored warfare and poor tactical decisions in the early stages of the invasion, a shortage of Armor Piercing ammunition (which was in short supply given what was expected, in truth what was brought along was done so out of a rigid obedience to doctrine and one embarrassing incident in the Conquest of Halless-II), ginger addiction and the continuing improvement of Toesvite Landcruisers meant that occasionally Tosevite armored forces could take out the Race's armored forces, even if the exchange rate remained firmly in the favor of the Conquest Fleet.
