As a Space Marine fanatic, I've been craving both the Land Raider Proteus, and the Armored Land Raider Proteus. The armored variant being far more appealing to me, I decided to add it to my Pre Heresy Ultramarines first, though at some point I do hope o get the Proteus as well.
The assembly was pretty easy, save for the tracks. One piece of the tracks on each side fit pretty poorly and either out of a lack of skill or just laziness, it ends up not looking right. I dd choose not to add a storm bolter, however I did add three pieces of Ultramarines brass etched.
The biggest challenge with this model is keeping it from being too monotone. This is why I added the brass etched, to add a couple splashes of gold to the blue and silver of the rest of the model.
I'm a life long reader of sci-fi and fantasy; and have been painting and modelling for about 10 years. Interested in chatting about some of the other books I've read? Send me an email or drop me a line on Shelfari.
