This is the Chaplain for McQueen's Marauders - in Terminator armor, no less.

Here is the Land Speeder once piloted by Chapter Founder Steveonious McQueen from the days of the Great Crusade. No longer used in battle, it is brought out during ceremonial occasions in memory of Chapter Master McQueen.

Just a quick update to show the basic color pattern - highlighting and decals still need to be added. This follows the color scheme of the famed Gulf Porsche 917s which dominated Le Mans in the early 1970's.

I guess it's called "fortuitous" that I brought my Space Marines along with my Empire army for a Fantasy game today. My buddy Pat (Socal Warhammer) invited me over to the GW Store across the Narrows Bridge ($5.00 toll) on his side of Puget Sound for a Fantasy game. I recall him saying he'd give the store a call to reserve a table for our game. Lo and behold, I show up before Pat and there's a massive 40K Apocalypse game going on. Having brought my recently painted Space Marines just to show them off to him, he suggested I get in on the game. The local crew were super cool in getting my feet wet and I had a great time.
As an aside, here is a something I am working on - kind of like a Frankenstein's monster right now, but it will, hopefully, be a Land Speeder for McQueen's Marauders. It's based on a 1/32nd scale Airfix Porsche 917 model kit I picked up off of ebay.
|McQueen's Marauders Terminators moving up for an assault.|
|The Terminators wiped out the enemy Space Marine unit.|
|The Tactical Squad did well too - even after losing their Sergeant when his plasma gun overheated and blew up. They did well enough without him against the enemy's Chaplain too.|
|A huge Necron thingee - not sure of the exact nomenclature.|
|No idea what all of the models are called, but there were a ton of them.|
|I believe this one is called a Stompa? It looked awesome.|

Went ahead and based them using coffee grounds mixed with sand for the flocking. For the coloring of the bases, Vallejo Field Grey and Green Grey were dry-brushed over a black basecoat. The colors were chosen mainly because I had them from painting up WW2 Germans in the past - and it looked close to what I envisioned their planet LeMans' ground cover might look like.
Terminators out in front of the Tactical guys, as well as the Captain in the center rear. The buildings are from another close-out sale many years ago - I bought them for my youngest son who used to play with Star Wars figures. Never thought I'd use them myself, but they look perfect for 40K.
