Default Marines 6 wheeled Transport

this just came up in another topic so I thought I would make a post of it.

Here is my one big claim to fame.

almost 3 years ago I won a tank building compatition and was featured in White Dwarf U.S.

The tank was a 6 wheeled transport vehicle I converted.

So because this came up again I will show everyone again.

Kinda old now but it is my most famous piece of work.*

No way!
I'll Never be to good for this site.


My buddies are a bunch of Golden Demon winners so I have to do my best to always do better so my stuff doesn't suck next to theres.
Its just at the local hobby shops they win everything and even at the games days they win best painted armies etc.

So I dont win much so that was really cool for me to be in a white dwarf.


Thanks alot guys.

I'm sure I've seen a real-world military vehicle that looked like that, only without the turrets. Can't remember what it was though... I've a feeling it might have been a next-generation prototype for an Army truck, but I can't be sure. No matter - the model is cool anyway! What do you field it as? A Land Raider, house rules, or did you run it through the VDRs?

Me and a "few of the gang" are starting up a new game... current dev name is tacky races... which is basically 40k races (bin done i know... but with a few twists)

The main theme is orks and conversions, and a wheeled landspeer was on the agenda... thanks for proving it works

anyway nice work.. love the models, they are great

40k Armies:
Chaos - Khorne - 1400pts
Space Marines - Crimson Skulls (My own chapter) - 1000pts

Chaos - Khorne - 3505pts

Armies in the Pipeline:
Warhammer - High Elves - 2642pts - Now in many bits on my desk... only 100 models to glue and paint :'(
Warhammer 40k - Tau - unknown at present, still working a list
