When I was planning my Daemonhunters army, I wanted a sniper. However I didn’t really like the Vindicare model, so decided to order the Imperial Guard Catachan Jungle Fighter Sniper and use that as a Vindicare Assassin with Exitus Rifle.
I have to say, when I compared the model to the Cadian Kasrkin I used for the Inquisitorial Stormtroopers I was slightly disappointed. It lacked the finesse and quality of the Kasrkin models. If I was going to start again, I would probably use the Cadian Sniper models.
I’ve always liked these Elysian vehicles ever since we saw them first at GamesDay 2009.
4-wheel Tauros is used by the Elysian regiments as a long-range scout vehicle, mounting potent anti-personnel firepower in the form of either a Heavy Flamer or Tauros Grenade Launcher. Its four wheels are individually powered by advanced high-yield galvanic motors, allowing it to maintain speed even with damaged tyres – often giving it a crucial edge when faced with superior enemy firepower.
I have decided to use them with my Daemonhunters’ Army with my Tallarn Imperial Guard. Before I start any model I have a look online at what others have done.
You get a small bag of resin.
Before I got started, I washed all the resin pieces.
A really nice model and doesn’t look too complicated to build, looks complicated to paint though.
In a previous post I talked about the problems I had had with the Citadel Spray Gun in undercoating a Land Raider.
You can see in this close-up how the thinned paint ran from the flat surface. Was not at all impressed.
So I tried again and got a much better result as you can see from the following photographs. Nice smooth finish.
Though this is a Grey Knights Land Raider, I decided early on with this force that the majority of the armoured vehicles would be a sandy desert colour. I used Citadel Foundation Paint, Tausept Ochre as the basecoat.
