Something new on my workbench. Landraiders!!!!
So right now i have 13 finished termies and ten more only waiting for some paint. Some transport-solution and heavy support is needed.
At the fair "Spiel Essen" i bought a Land Raider Achilles Alpha Pattern. Allways loved the MKIIb pattern, so this one was a must have.
I build it together with a Land Raider Crusader, but wanted to modify both of them.
So here we go...
For the Achilles i only removed the upper tread-cover. The MKIIb-base is nice, but i wanted to push it more to a historical design. Looking at old WWI-Tanks i like the idea of the visible treads. Maybe i'll leave some small cover-parts around the Headlights and at the rear edge.
The Crusader allways seemed to small to fit 16 marines or 8 termies (is this rule still active?), so i tried to expand it. First i thought about inverting the kit, but then i tried my first scratch-built. Inspiration came from WWII-Landing boats. It's not much and on the top-front-edge i messed it up a but, but i'm okay with it. The next time i have to be more creative with the expanded top-side.
The second big slot on top of the Crusader is for the multi-melta because i never liked the original one.
Both got some decoration from old building-sets to make them more majestic.
So here's the actual state. Will finish the Achilles first and try to improve my gold-painting skills. Maybe there will be some free-hand decoration too.
