Shading the Land Raider

I have on my workbench a standard Land Raider. For the basecoat I used Tausept Ochre. I lost interest in the model, so, it got put into storage. However having liked the paint scheme I was using on my Deimos-pattern Rhino, I decided that I would find the model and paint this Land Raider in the same scheme. The first thing I did was spray the underneath of the model with Citadel Zandri Dust. I gave the model a couple of light sprays of Army Painter Daemonic Yellow. I painted the weapon sub-assemblies. added detailing and painted the iconography.

I attached the lascannons to the Land Raider and then started to shade the model. The side sponsons I did glue in. The frontal lascannons I left unstuck as I wanted to ensure I could get behind them.

I shaded the model with Reikland Fleshshade Shade. This was the process I used on the Deimos-pattern Rhino.

It didn’t cover as well as I would have liked, so I will be going over the model again.

I will do some further shading with Seraphim Sepia Shade and Agrax Earthshade Shade, especially over the rear engine area.
