Custom Star Wars Landspeeders (2 new added)
« on: January 17, 2011, 12:06:24 AM »


Hello, my fellow Lead Adventurers!  :)

I just finished 2 more landspeeders for the big race coming up, and posted them over at my blog.  There are lots more pictures, as well as a bit about how I made the conversions and painted them.  Feel free to check it out, and join the blog and discussion:

Beautiful Chris! That gives me even more ideas with what to do with my spare Flash Speeders.

I'd be very interested in the rules you use for the race if you are able to share?

I saw all your landspeeders on your blog and they are all amazing. I really like the way you converted the Flash speeder this time. Which rules should you use for your race ?

Great work. Are these kits or scratch built?

Thanks!

Regarding the rules, I've made some custom rules for the race, I'll be happy to post them once they are ready.  It'll be a few months though, I'm working on other writing stuff now, and the race rules probably won't be finished until the night before the race, knowing me.   ::)

Thanks Matt.  They are conversions of toys, if you read the blog entries I describe how they were all made.   :)

I have to say that the rodian repaint is bloody lovely!  :-*

Are you looking to do seated crew for all the speeders?

Thanks, I'm glad I decided to repaint it.   :)

I'm doing a few crewmembers, but I'll probably just use some of the Galoob Micromachine 'Action Fleet" pilots for any that I don't do.  They are about the right scale, and bend at the hips and shoulders, so they work well for pilots.
