Salamanders Land Speeder
Sticking with the theme of Melta and Flame, the Salamanders are reinforced this installment with a Land Speeder Tornado equipped with Heavy Flamer and Multimelta. This was a straight build, with the pilot and gunner of the Land Speeder built separately from the speeder itself. This would allow for ease of painting, but also ease of application of the water slide transfers.
There wasn't any real experimentation with the Land Speeder, the main addition to the scheme is the spot light on the front. This was done with layers of P3 Sulfuric yellow, GW Golden Yellow and P3 Cygnus Yellow. The greens were done with P3 Gnarls Green, Iosan green and Wurm Green.
Typically, I leave the flying stands of my models clear. Probably because they can match whatever terrain they are put on that way. The only thing this model definitely needs (as the pics show) is some touch up over the carrier film of the transfers. It is a step I need to go back and do on the Tactical Squad as well. Next time, I have a special character to show off.
