The Repressor tank is often used by Sisters of Battle as transport, and by the Adeptus Arbites in an anti insurgency role. I said in a blog post back in 2004.
“I do like this model and I am intending to get one to use with my Daemonhunters army as a transport for the Storm Troopers”.
I did get one and started building and painting this model back in 2007, I recently retrieved it from storage and decided that I would try and finish painting it. I realised I had made quite significant progress and it wouldn’t take too long to finish it off.
Having sprayed the model with Citadel Zandri Dust. I started the detailing, using Leadbelcher on the weapons and the exhausts. The next step was painting the iconography and purity seals. I then gave the model a wash using Citadel shades. I then did some additional shading using different shades.
The next stage was some drybrushing, for this I used Citadel Zandri Dust.
The aim here was to add edge highlights to the Repressor. I wanted to achieve a slight dusty effect as well.
After the drybrushing I will then detail the iconography, the weapons, and the exhausts on the model.
I tried a new technique that I picked up from my FLGS. It was to use a metallic gold Sharpie pen on the front iconography. It was easy to apply and I quite liked the end result. You have to be careful to be accurate, as unlike acrylic paint, which you can remove quite easily if you make a mistake. This is a permanent marker and won’t budge!
The tracks for the Repressor were given a spray of Mechanicus Standard Grey.
I then did a heavy drybrush of Gorthor Brown. The tracks, once dry, I then gave them a wash of Agrax Earthshade Shade. I then did a heavy drybrush of Gorthor Brown. The tracks, once dry, I then gave them a wash of Agrax Earthshade Shade. After painting and shading them, I drybrushed them lightly, first with Leadbelcher. I then did a very light drybrush with Terminatus Stone.
The next step was to paint and highlight the iconography.
This is to brighten up the purity seals and other iconography after it was dulled down by the shades and washes.
