I did manage to finish painting five landspeeders this week. The camo colors are Vallejo zombie flesh and cheap craft store dark grey.
A rather stupid vehicle, the landspeeder, there appears to be no way to land or park it safely.
|The speeder in the middle is missing a door, so I tried to make it look blown off with accompanying paint scratches.|
They're missing pieces here and there, I pretend that gives them more character. Two have flamers and multi-meltas, one has only a multi-melta, one has a heavy bolter, and one only the flamer. Can't really complain about cheap models. I prefer to buy all my Games Workshop kit used, because it's usually at least 50% cheaper. I don't like to strip models either; another guy's paintjob is my primer.
One piece of advice for anyone, who has never painted a landspeeder, paint the interior before adding the little pilots. It was almost unfun painting the little cockpit buttons, controls, and lights with a big stupid space marine in the way.
Till next time, when I could have some some medieval archers, halbidiers, or random sci-fi minis.
