So here’s a Pre-Heresy Land Speeder painted in Salamanders colours and with some iconography added.
This is an interesting one as on this model we get rounded shapes which he pretty much hadn’t seen on Space Marines hardware since the early 1990s. I mean the thing looks like a muscle car already, so I thought it would be fitting to paint is in a way that it may be featured in a car magazine as well. That also was the reason why I kept battle damage to a minimum.
Come to think of it, maybe I should have presented these pictures in a kind of Top Gear homage way. Oh well. Anyway, back on topic. Yeah, it was fun painting this fella.
I didn’t build the model, so I don’t know how easy or hard that was. I do get questions about how hard it was to build, so I assume the kit may have a reputation.
What I did do was that I added quite a substantial pin to the flying base to keep the model from wobbling around and to give the flying stand a bit more resilience. The model does weigh quite a bit. Of course the base isn’t glued to the model.
So yeah, I hope you like the model. I certainly do. 🙂
