Grey Knights Land Raider

Grey Knights can use Land Raiders, when I first started putting this force together I knew that if I was going to get a Land Raider it would have to be the Forgeworld MkIIB Land Raider.

However I was also lucky enough to receive a second Land Raider as a present. It was the Terminus model, however I decided to build it as a standard Land Raider.

Having made the hull I kept the weapons as separate assemblies, I would also be adding the tracks later too.

I made up two possible variantions on frontal weaponry including Heavy Bolters and Lascannons.

Now I made a mistake when I ordered my Mark IIb Land Raider, you get a set of doors and I (foolishly) asked them to replace the supplied eagle doors with Grey Knights Land Raider doors. Now what I didn’t realise was that the side doors on the sponson are not the same size as the Land Raider doors, but are in fact the same size as Rhino side doors. So the Grey Knight doors are too big! However this meant I could use them on this new Land Raider.

I gave the model a black undercoat using Chaos Black spray can.

There was an issue with the rear mudguard, which I will need to fix.

The next stage is to paint on the basecoat. For this I used the Foundation Paints from Games Workshop, specifically Tausept Ochre.

I decided that I would try using Citadel’s spray gun to base coat the rest of the Land Raider. However due to thinning the paint too much I didn’t get the result I hoped for.

So I tried to use the spray gun again, this time with a little more success.
