Earth Force Dropship

I finished my Khurasan Lander this weekend.  I'm pleased with how it turned out.  It is a very good model, in my opinion. I hope my paint job has done it justice.
Paint finished and awaiting matte spray.
Close up of Lander only.
The cargo/troop bay. 
Bay door open, turrets in the background.
I used some old 40K Imperial Guard decals I had around.  They add a little extra detail and give the piece some character.  This will be a nice centerpiece model for my Earth Force Marines army.

 Some on the table shots:
Earth Force Marines deploy onto the LZ...
...while the Lander provides excellent covering fire with it's two tri-barrel turrets.
I painted the windows in gloss coat for some shine. I like the effect.
The Lander prepares to lift as soon as the Marines are clear.
The troop bay is left to establish a hard point on the LZ.
I now have two viable forces for Gruntz 15mm or for THW's 5150: Star Army.  I should be able to develop some scenarios using my Khurasan Space Demons and my Rebel Minis Earth Force Marines.  I also have a good supply of desert world terrain.  I will get a game in soon and will post as soon as I do.

Until next time, carry on!
