Cargo Speeder

To keep on with my terrain for my Star Wars Legion games, I put together a little workhorse cargo speeder. My intention is to have a cohesive story to the terrain pieces.

Like the Tatooine Buildings, there are no in progress shots before what’s shown I’m afraid. Construction here consists entirely of foamed pvc and styrene. I then did a little detailing with some plastic kits. The seat and dish on the front are from a Tamiya M113 kit, the exposed mechanicals are all styrene offcuts and kitbashed pieces. The ribbed tubing on the top of the cargo bed are from Anakin’s podracer.

For the engine I tried to V-35 Courier pods, albeit a little more simplistically. I did like the idea of this being a slow, underpowered utility speeder.

This is my first attempt at Star Wars greebling. I did my best to try and get enough detail in there for it to feel authentic to the setting.

For consistency I used the same crates as seen in front of the small hut seen below. I will be painting these ones blue to match.

I really enjoyed making the cargo speeder, a very different scratch build to usual. A lot more thought went into what’s going where and why.
