Land Raider Crusader

I picked this guy up along with 2 techmarines and a servitor at a swap meet for $35 a while back.  I wish I'd thought to take some pictures of it before I started repairing it.  It's one of the older plastic + metal models.  After extensive green stuff work and replacement of the treads I gave it a quick basecoat to try out my blue and gray Space Marine scheme.  Sadly these are the best pictures I managed to take, and it leaves the blue and grey a lot lighter then it actually is and doesn't show the sparkle of the gunmetal paint >.<  Not sure having a dedicated photo box would help that any though.



  1. A photo box makes a world of difference, and I learned that the hard way. Best thing is that you can make your own on the cheap out of shelf paper, an discarded box, and some $3 lights from Home Depot. You won't regret it.

  2. Hmm, any particular flavor of bulbs you suggest? My workroom currently has a variety of types, which while inadvertent ends up balancing the light spectrum reasonably well.
