Epic 30k - Achilles Land Raiders for VII Legion

Land Raiders for the VII Legion

A few more Epic 30k bits to share as we enjoy our summer here in Canada.  Just a pair of Land Raiders for the VII Legion, the Imperial Fists, in this posting.  I believe these are the "Achilles" variant of this vehicle - extra tough even by tough standards of the Land Raider vehicle.  Where the classic Land Raider has lascannons on the sponsons, this vehicle sports even more armour, a nose-mounted heavy cannon, and closer support weapons like multi-meltas or volkite weapons on the sponsons.

The added armour and weapons come at the cost of troop-carrying space - each of these Land Raiders would hold only one infantry stand instead of the usual two. These vehicles will assist Rogal Dorn's chaps as they punch in against rebel Astrates positions - I see them being particularly useful in urban settings.

These vehicles meet the key requirements of service in the 30k era - huge treads, slabs of armour and silly guns - perfect!

I hope everyone out there is enjoying their summer and getting a break to relax (and paint more, of course!). I'll have a few more Epic 30k bits along shortly before moving back to the "regular" scale figures.

Stunning two Land Raiders Greg! Judging by your output it won't be too long before you can field a whole 30k Astartes Legion.
