Heresy Era Iron Hands - Proteus Land Raiders (mostly) painted, and more batch painting madness

Little more forward motion. Took a break from the infantry to get the Proteus Land Raiders up to the "just off the assembly line" stage - I'm planning on getting all the vehicles to this point then weather them all at once so they stay consistent. They haven't been matte sealed yet so they're still pretty shiny - lots of reflections from the lamps...


Have to say I really like the Proteus kit, whatever legion next strikes my fancy will definitely be getting a couple of these tanks as well! Looking forward to trying out a more interesting paint scheme on 'em than the black and white of the Iron Hands...


I also made a little more headway on the tac marines, with the whites finished and the initial earthtone laid down on the bases they're really starting to come into focus! ...Well, the picture itself is a little out of focus, but still!

You are killing me. You have a whole army half done and i am just getting slower and slower with each project. What the hell man?!

@Zab: Hah! Sorry man, been in the zone on these guys. Only a little over two months remain to get them all done, so I'm over compensating. :)

Insanity.

Looking really good, and yes, old school LRs are the future! ;)

@Dai: Almost finished, actually! Still a number of tanks yet to be built and a handful of units yet to be purchased, but I'm already thinking about the next one... Hah!

@Sir Tainly: Thanks mate!

Loving this project so far, especially the Land Raiders! You're making me want to start a pre-Heresy army just to justify those and a brace of Contemptors to myself.

And then there's those Mechanicum models from Games Day Italy...

@#2501: Thanks! I'm really enjoying the heresy stuff, and as you know my love for the Ad Mech will mean I'm gonna be giving FW all my money as soon as their models start becoming available... Argh!
