Land Raider Update #thedailypaint

Got this done before getting to sleep last night. I think all that’s left are the muddy tracks and other dirt-slop up the sides of this beast.

Next comes the “ripped off side sponsors” debris that shows up when you remove weapons from the tank.

Large Update (picture heavy)

I’ve been working on my Salamanders like crazy lately. First off, I received my Salamander shoulder pads from Forge World yesterday and I added them to the Sternguard. That should be the last pieces for the Sternguard.

Second, I added some “flat rounded stone”-textured plasticard to the recesses on the Rhino/Razorback tank hulls. (I also received some Rhino front panels from Forge World but they are not pictured.)

Lastly, I started working on the much-neglected Land Raider. This guy has been sitting, half-painted for over a year. The initial thing I did what cut out some “flat rounded stone”-textured plasticard and add that to the the tank’s hull. I then added some better struts inside the weapon doors with additional magnets to hold the side sponsons on. After that I painted the “scales” and then added some highlights to the rest of the tank and crew. I rounded it all out with some Boltgun Metal drybrushed onto the weapons, engine, tatical gear and sunk in hull pieces.
