A relic of years passed when Land Speeders were a support choice for the Imperial Guard. this is a lovely miniature that was a pleasure to paint. I’m pleased with the way this turned out, I think the crewmen especially came out alright. I was least pleased with the tiny repair job I did, replacing a missing under-slung bolter with a plastic bolter from a modern Space Marine tank. I decided not to put any iconography on the Land Speeder so that it could be used as either a loyalist or traitor army, depending on my mood.
Another Techmarine. I think I need to start painting some of the other specialists of the Steel Guard, they’re lacking Librarians and Chaplains. The Techmarines are fun to paint though.
I must say that I have real trouble getting enough light and no shadows in my photography. Learning to paint (ish) has been hard enough, learning to get good photos seems to be something else I need to do now.
Ancient Binahus is a great hero of the chapter whose mortal body was reduced to a thick meaty paste by Orks one afternoon. His brain, bits of nervous system, and a few rashers of crispy marine bacon were interred into a dreadnought so that he could fight on. But his dreadnought is also his chapter’s secret shame. Don’t tell anyone, but this Steel Guard paintjob hides an earlier Ultramarines job! Can it be that the Steel Guard have yoinked one of their allies’ dreads?
I haven’t really been anywhere, I’ve been painting plenty of things, but somehow never got around to taking photos and putting them up here… poor blogging form.
Still working my way through the Battlemasters pile. Once these models are all painted there will be two fine armies, although I might need to go back to the beginning and repaint some of the early figures! I’ve improved gradually over the years and I expect some of the first BM minis I painted will look even more amateurish than my usual output! If that ever happens I will of course take some bad photos of the armies!
