Painting the MkIIb Land Raider

The Land Raider is an Imperial main battle tank and troop transport which serves as the “armoured fist of the Space Marines.” The Mark IIb Land Raider Phobos is one of the earliest marks of the standard pattern of Land Raider, and it still bears similarities to both the Land Raider Proteus and the Spartan Assault Tank that served as the models for the design.

I got a Forge World MkIIB Land Raider and was originally painting it up as a Grey Knights Land Raider in desert camouflage. Eventually it would have looked like the Repressor.

I wrote up some more reflections recently on my MkIIB Land Raider, on the current state of the painting and what I needed to do next.

After giving the model a spray of White Scar over the original base coat of Tausept Ochre I gave the model a new basecoat of Daemonic Yellow spray from Army Painter.

The next stage will be painting the exhausts, weapons and iconography. Having painted the Deimos-pattern Rhino, my other Land Raider, and the Repressor I feel confident in painting the details on this model.
