Back in April I wrote after seeing the plastic Spartan Land Raider Assault Tank I did wonder if we would see a plastic Land Raider Proteus.
With the announcement of the plastic Spartan Land Raider Assault Tank it got me thinking, will we also a plastic Land Raider Proteus? It wouldn’t be too much of a step to have a plastic kit of this Land Raider? Essentially the Spartan is a stretched Land Raider.
After it was announced back in August, today we see that we are going to be able to pre-order the plastic Land Raider Proteus next week.
Before the Spartan Assault Tank there was one true king of armoured troop conveyance – the Land Raider. Many patterns of these lumbering tanks exist in Legion armouries, but none have the pedigree of the venerable Land Raider Proteus, which now returns to the Age of Darkness with a new plastic kit.
I do like this model and I am seriously considering getting one, depending on the price, to go with my Deimos-pattern Rhino.
So, now we are returning full circle to the original plastic Land Raider model which was released in 1988, well very close.
