Who's ready for a ride?

Here's something extra special for you!  This is the Triaros Armored Conveyor, and it is huge!

The treads alone are bigger than a Land Raider, and it dominates in scale over the Krios heavy support vehicle.

This massive hunk of resin weighs in at over two pounds.  Yes indeed.

It was painted in at least a dozen individual pieces, and then assembled later.

That final assembly took over three hours, and had me making lots of loud, unhappy sounds.

I will be taking some shots of this surrounded by the troops it is hauling, as well as a side by side with the Krios.

That will give you a true indication of how gigantic this really was.

In the meantime, I hope you like these images!


  1. Also, this is a great job, as always. Technology is not our cup of tea, but even so, fantastic paint. We like patina, rust, dirt, scratches. Great and realistic.

  2. Stunning work James. One of the things I particularly like about the way you paint...the tracks on the vehicle. They are REALLY interesting. Lots of variety in tone, color, weathering. Never have I looked a tanks tracked and gone "oh wow, let me check out all the tracks and see how they are all different". I think it makes a bold statement when one of the more overlooked parts of a model becomes so interesting!

    1. Many thanks! That is particularly appreciated, as those tracks were very unique in form, and required an entirely new approach. :-)
