This is Marneus Calgar’s Land Raider which was on show at GamesDay 2005.
It is a fantastically detailed and painted model.
Lots of added features.
This is the ‘Eavy Metal Black Templar Land Raider.
As displayed at GamesDay 2005.
Here are some photographs of Forgeworld’s Inquisitorial Land Raider and Rhino.

This is a Forgeworld Mk2 Land Raider from their Display Cabinets at GamesDay 2005.
I really like this model which bear a similarity to the Epic40K Land Raider.
A very dirty Land Raider…
This is the painted miniature which won the Golden Demon 2005 Slayer Sword (apologies for the slightly blurred photograph).
Personally I am not a great fan of it.
More digital trickery…
Land Raiders on patrol on a dark and stormy night. There are original plastic Land Raiders and a Snapdragon 6mm Bunker.
The first attempt was a little different (more harsh lines between the bunker and the sky).
The final version used a feathered edge.
So which one do you prefer?
At the recent UK GamesDay, a preview of the new all plastic Space Marine Attack Bike was shown.
As you may have seen in previous posts and on my workbench I have been working on a Grey Knights Landspeeder.
I do realise that it is not in the Codex and there is not a lot of fluff to support such a model, however I do think it will look cool. I am using the Land Speeder which came with the original boxed set, purity symbols from ForgeWorld and a book and skull from the Inquisitor range.
Under the same misconception I think that the new plastic Attack Bike will make a fine starting point for a Grey Knights version.
Also at Gamesday was a completed Forgeworld pre-Heresy Land Raider, built and painted by Will Hayes.
It is my intention to get one of these for my Grey Knights (and this is in the Codex and the fluff).
Digging through some old Epic models I found these conversions…
I was digging about in my model boxes when I found these conversions I had done in the 1990s.
They were made from the original SM era plastic Land Raider models with metal titan weapons.
The paint job is a bit below my usual standard, they were painted red, given an ink wash and then blacklined with a pen.
Unfortunately over time they have picked up some fluff….
