Land Speeder.

We are playing in our local club a Warhammer 40k small campaing. I am paintong my troops, ultramarines, and I decided begin with my land speeder.
I prefer play historical games, but, sometimes, a fantasy game, is very funny. When I am a lot of time painting egiptyans, or WWII germans, or WWI... brtish, or... I like stop, and relax me painting a fantasy miniature.

After 6 months painting miniatures, we played the battle of Qadesh.
Around 10000 1/72 miniatures, 50 chariots, in a 2m x 8m playing area.
It was one of the funniest battles that I played in my life. After 10 hours of playing, the Egyptian army wins the battle after an hittite retreat to the Orontes river. It was not a full victory for the egyptians, was only a tactical victory, but, a victory.
I can show some pictures about the terrain, the deploy, and the first turn.
