Time for something heavier again. Two newly painted vehicles sported by the 42nd Cadian!

Starting off with the Chimera of the 303rd Veteran squad. Nothing too fancy, just a regular Chimera, although I did decide to put a tank commander on there to help it stand out a little. Also since there is no accessory sprue in the kits anymore...

A little shot from a different angle.

From the rear, you can clearly see the 303rd squad number on it! Also shows how dull is a Chimera without the stowage...

And a closeup on the tank commander. I actually really like the new version of him, looks good!

But the Chimera isn't the only thing, there's also an additional Leman Russ in its most basic variant!

I did have some leftover accessories so I could spice him up a little. Also I have to say I really like the new LRBT design. Even though it isn't much different the turret just feels better.

And a little closeup on the turret.

All in all I am quite pleased with those. Although it seems that the humble LRBT isn't as efficient as it used to be and I am only noticing it now. Even though it kills Marines quite nicely it just doesn't have the "oomph" other HS choices have. Oh well, I still do have two and will field them from time to time. Maybe if I get to do the Armored Company I was thinking of...
