Leman Russ Resurrection – Part 1

Ages ago I posted an article pondering whether or not to revisit some of the old miniatures that I still regularly use. At the time I decided to leave things as they are however the advent of the new Astra Militarum Codex has brought with it a change of heart.

Specifically, I want to strip, rebuild, augment and repaint my first ever Leman Russ tank that I bought back when the kit was released in 1995.

Here it is.

As you can see, it’s in a fairly sorry condition which is mainly down to its construction and painting at the hands of an over enthusiastic fifteen year old. Plus, as you can see here, I never even bothered to fully paint the underside!

So, about fifteen minutes ago I put the beastie in a box containing brake fluid, hopefully tomorrow morning I’ll be able to strip off the paint without too much elbow grease.

I can’t wait šŸ™‚
