Grey Knights MkIIb Land Raider

Having given the Land Raider Mark IIb a black undercoat I started the basecoat.

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.

Now I made a mistake, 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!

Undercoating the 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 Forge World 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 model I gave it a black undercoat.

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

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.

Notice how the doors are at the rear, it never made sense to me to have the main weaponry firing in the way of the side doors… so the main lascannons are at the front and the access doors at the rear.

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

Inquisitor

The greatest threat to the Imperium of Man is, and has always been, the followers of Chaos and the foul daemons of the Warp. The Inquisitors of the Ordo Malleus, the Daemonhunters, are at war with forces too terrible to comprehend and, together with the holy warriors of the Grey Knights, they must take the light of the Emperor into the darkness. The threat of the daemonic is so great that only these heroic warriors have the necessary skills and knowledge to stand against such diabolical foes.

One of the HQ choices is of course an Inquisitor and a very nice model it is too.

I decided early on that I would leave the book he was holding separate and glue it on later. He started off with a white undercoat and the paper areas were given a thinned coat of Desert Yellow.

I have given the Inquisitor a purple cloak. Purple is a very stately colour and fits well with the Daemonhunters fluff. I then highlighted the cloak with Warlock Purple to accentuate the edges of the model.

I painted the gun and the wrist black.

Imperial Guard Regimental Advisors

There are some really nice Imperial Guard releases in May from Games Workshop. As well as the nice plastic Valkyrie, one other release is looking like a possible purchase, the Imperial Guard Regimental Advisors.

The commander of an Imperial Guard army is assisted by a host of orderlies, adjutants, aides de camps and specialist advisors from outside the regiment who are able to liaise with other elements of the battle group.

This blister contains three metal Imperial Guard Advisors, including: an Officer of the Fleet, a Master of Ordinance and an Astropath.

I am thinking they might make good characters for the Warhammer 40K role-playing game or as part of an Inquisitorial retinue.

Inquisitor Lorr Basecoat

Having flocked the base with Games Workshop modelling sand, I gave the model a white undercoat.

I then gave most of the model a basecoat of Desert Yellow.

Rules can be found in White Dwarf #304 for this model.
