Completed my first land speeder and i must say i really enjoyed building this kit. The fit was quite good and i had a lot of fun painting it up. As with my skulls drop pod, i used a lot of black into the scheme in tribute to the classic Silver Skulls rhino which i saw in a very old SM codex....don't remember which edition.I wanted the scheme to look really retro/old style and went with simple block of silver and black. I'll share why i choose the Silver Skulls in another post. What i didn't realise was that they have been around for a long time in 40k lore. Am really happy i decided to paint this chapter.
This being my 3rd 40K army i'm experimenting with the weathered look. No clean models for this Wildhost version. I know i could have done more with this model but i just ran out of time and steam. A secret to good weathering, i believe, is knowing when to stop.
I still need to put some flock on the base but otherwise i'm happy with the end look . Thanks to Jeff for the assault marine shoulder pads. And Dynath for designing the Silver Skulls shoulder pads. More on that in the next post :)
Tomorrow, we change from painting vehicles to some infantry models....in the shape of 6 mean rough tough 1st company terminators.
