Red Wax on my purity seals

Having painted the paper parts of the purity seals on my Grey Knights Landspeeder I highlighted the seals with Bleached Bone and Skull White.

I then painted the wax seals. I used the red foundation paint for this (as I had used a black undercoat). I then highlighted the seals with normal Citadel Colour, Blood Red.

I will need to do the writing next.

Purity Seals on my Grey Knights Landspeeder

Having finished most of the metal bodywork on my Grey Knights Landspeeder I went and painted the purity seals using a Foundation Paint.

It covered the black undercoat really well compared to normal Citadel colour. There are quite a few on the model, I used the resin purity seals available from Forgeworld rather than make my own. You can make your own using paper and green stuff for the seals, but the Forgeworld ones are much easier to use and I think much better than I could do.

When I was editing the photographs for this blog entry I was quite pleased with the way the metal finish appeared (in close-up) on the Landspeeder body.

This was done with Boltgun Metal. I still need to add some highlights.

Grey Knights Land Speeder – the story continues…

Painting Orks takes time, so much time that I realised it had been some time since I last mentioned my Grey Knights Landspeeder (see work done so far here).

I got it out the other day and finished off the basecoat which was done in Boltgun Metal. Basically I did the left wing and the engine compartment doors.

The next stage was to do the purity seals.

Ork Lootas with Heavy Bolter and Multi-Melta…

These are Orks who have looted Imperial weaponry. Not only can they use Space Marine weapons they can also take the transport option…

These are conversion using spare weapons from an Imperial Landspeeder.

Ork Lootas  with Heavy Bolter and Multi-Melta...

One of the issues is that they are Heavy Support and with my Killa Kans, Big Gunz, Grot Bomb Launchas and Squiggoth, I don’t really have any spare Heavy Support slots, so I may use these models as Flash Gitz.

More of the model painted…┬áManaged to get in some painting time (the majority was spent on a secret project) however I did manage to get some more of my Grey Knights Land Speeder painted.

You can see I have painted more of the bodywork (in Boltgun Metal) and painted the Imperial Eagle in Burnished Gold with highlights. The Inquisitor Book has also had the edges painted in Burnished Gold.

The underneath has been drybrushed with Boltgun Metal and I may do some weathering on the engines later.

Though the crew legs still need painting, I have painted the instrument panel.

This final shot shows how the model is coming together… still need to paint the crew!

Grey Knights Land Speeder – conversion coming along nicely…

I am currently working on a Grey Knights Land Speeder for my Warhammer 40K Daemonhunters’ army.

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.

Using the Land Speeder which came with the original boxed set, purity symbols from ForgeWorld and a book and skull from the Inquisitor range.

The crew lower halves needed to be cut back as they were rounded and when the Grey Knight (metal models) are cut in half they will need a flat surface to stick to.

The Land Speeder weapon systems were “donated” to my Ork army to become a Loota unit.

The entire model was then sprayed black. The base colour is Boltgun metal.
