40K: Stowage

So just a fast update this frosty December evening in Philadelphia...

Over finals and exams last week I updated and detailed a Leman Russ and Chimera, previously started years ago. They are essentially done but I may add some touches like spall marks along the hull and scorching around the heavy flamer. Also, I think the blue is a little too intense, I may tune it down. But that will be later, good enough for now.

Also, I painted up and glued on some stowage. I think it adds character to the vehicles.

++ for the stowage

The general paint scheme looks awesome as always. Maybe a quick boltgun drybrush over the Chimera tracks to make them pop more? It could just be the photo, but they're a pretty solid block of black right now that it would be easy to break up with a couple quick brush passes. Awesome stuff though.

I may have to order some of the Tamiya stowage/accessory packs you use before I finish my predators. They look really good, here and on that converted Landspeeder you gave me.

Thanks man.

I'm going to Capelli's down on Market on Thursday at lunch if you want to join me. They usually have those there.

Also, the light quality in the pics was wonky and I didn't adjust balance to offset. The tracks pop enough in real life.

You can experience the pop yourself as they grind over your antique ceramite suits.
