I started out surprised thinking that 'I didn't know GW made a pre-coloured plastic kit.'

'Wait... is that... Lego!?'

Very impressive to duplicate the vehicles so accurately with Lego, well done sir.

Thanks! :D

I have recently reconfigured its drive system to use slower gear ratio, and guess what, it is not slower at all. But hell does it have a lot of power... It pushes large boxes and will try to climb walls to the point of being almost upright.

You do need to find some way to launch projectiles from it someday. (Well may be a bit fiddly with a gun that small, could be easier on a vindicator perhaps)

I do not really like lego models with shooting function, because it is always a laughable "plop" after which a tiny little thing flies a meter or so and thats all.

Believe me that whole desk shakes when the Land Raider is moving and it tends to leave deep track marks on any soft surface. It is still a toy, but with 3,5kgs of weight and enough power to rotate the tracks even if it lacks grip to move, it realy conveys a sense of power - especially considering the noise it makes with rather clanky mechanics and four super-powerful (for LEGO world :D) XL motors.

I have a movie somewhere where the tank was literally crushing an ork settlement and now with better gearing I believe it could do it way more efficiently. Unless it again sucks in entire blanket under it like last time :D

Compared to this, shooting function just feels... lame. :)

Excellent work. Is that a Land Raider Redeemer, or an original design with lascannons or Reaper autocannons replacing the Redeemer's Flamestorm cannons?

Not very likely for two reasons:

First, they are roughly 3x the scale of originals GW models (and soldiers do not have mandatory stands)

Second, the Land Raider for example weights about 3.5 kilos and it drives. Who would like to play against someone who can do that:

Eh, lots and lots of prototyping, experimentation, UTTER FAILURES and a big, colorful mass of unsorted LEGO pieces on top of that. Literally.

And some $$$, though the closer you live to US the cheaper this hobby gets.

Sometimes you have entire model built and realize that its proportions are messed up, because there is one "stud"* of length missing in the middle. It requires rebuild, sometimes redesign, more $$$ and time. Happened to me during building the Land Raider. Literally a week because the side doors were a stud too short.

*stud is a measurement unit for a lego fan - 1-stud long means the size of a 1 by 1 smallest piece with one round "dot" on it.
