Vostroyan Leman russ WIP

Sunday, 10 October 2010 , Posted by President Evil at 10:13

I've been working on this commission peice for a while. I have had a number of setbacks along the way, but now it is all going smoothly and i would say i am at least halfway finished, probably more, after a couple of days of painting.

Note that the turret is just resting on top in this pic, so that's why it looks a bit wonky. Painting and shading it with the airbrush this time has been fantastic. I invested in an Iwata Brush and compressor and after some experimentation i have found that my vallejo paints seemed to go through it the best. I've got so many paints from different ranges that it's hard to justify trying any more than the ones i already own.

Here are some pics of the magnetised parts.

I have magnetised the dozer blade, the choice of hatch weapons, the searchlight and the tank commander. When i was asked for a quote for this job, i assumed it would be the new style leman russ kit, with all the weapon options that comes inside, so i was planning to build the tank to have interchangable weapons. Unfortuantely when the box arrived at my door it turned out to be the old style one which basically has no weapon options, not even sponson weapons. So i was a little dissapointed and had to modify my quote. Still, i was looking forward to playing with magnets, so that's what i did :)
