There are still a couple of things I'm going to go back and do, such as add company number decals, but this is what the four Leman Russ tanks will look like.
All-in-all I'm quite pleased with the end result. I think that I managed a more realistic level of weathering that will work on any game table. As a coordinated army the whole thing should come together nicely.
I am quite pleased with the skin tones on this one -- although I still can't get a decent photo. At this point I actually have his left arm attached and will probably start in on his right arm tonight. I plan on finishing him before this weekend and then it's back to the tanks. The endless, endless tanks.

Things left to complete at this point:
Extra Armor on the 5 variants
Dozer blades on the 5 variants
Vanquisher turret for the crazy tank conversion
And then they're ready for painting. I've started in on the flag, as you can see, but only while waiting for glue to dry.
Speaking of glue... do *not* spend a lot of time hovering over your Methyl Ethyl Ketone plastic cement. My head has stopped hurting but my left eye still twitches from time to time. Fun stuff. Here's hoping I never glue another tank tread...
