Tracking the Inquisitorial Stormtroopers Repressor Transport

The Repressor tank is often used by Sisters of Battle as transport, and by the Adeptus Arbites in an anti insurgency role. I started building and painting this model back in 2007, I recently retrieved it from storage and decided that I would try and finish painting it. I realised I had made quite significant progress and it wouldn’t take too long to finish it off.

Having sprayed the model with Citadel Zandri Dust over the existing Tausept Ochre base coat and black undercoat, I started the detailing, using Leadbelcher on the weapons and the exhausts. The next step was painting the iconography and purity seals. I then gave the model a wash using Citadel shades. I then did some additional shading using different shades. The next stage was some drybrushing, for this I used Citadel Zandri Dust. I also took the time to brighten up the purity seals and other iconography after it was dulled down by the shades and washes.

Despite having already affixed tracks to other Rhino variants on my workbench, I found this one quite challenging. No idea why, but it was more difficult to fix the tracks on the Repressor.

I also managed to break off the cupola double bolter, so I had to glue that back on. I also added the dozer blade.

I also highlighted the purity seals with some White Scar paint, but I think I overdid this, so might dull these down a bit with some shade.

There is still some work to do with this model, but I am pleased I have made progress and nearly finished it.

Drybrushing the Inquisitorial Stormtroopers Repressor Transport

The Repressor tank is often used by Sisters of Battle as transport, and by the Adeptus Arbites in an anti insurgency role. I said  in a blog post back in 2004.

“I do like this model and I am intending to get one to use with my Daemonhunters army as a transport for the Storm Troopers”. 

I did get one and started building and painting this model back in 2007, I recently retrieved it from storage and decided that I would try and finish painting it. I realised I had made quite significant progress and it wouldn’t take too long to finish it off.

The next stage was some drybrushing, for this I used Citadel Zandri Dust.

The aim here was to add edge highlights to the Repressor. I wanted to achieve a slight dusty effect as well.

After the drybrushing I will then detail the iconography, the weapons, and the exhausts on the model.

I tried a new technique that I picked up from my FLGS. It was to use a metallic gold Sharpie pen on the front iconography. It was easy to apply and I quite liked the end result. You have to be careful to be accurate, as unlike acrylic paint, which you can remove quite easily if you make a mistake. This is a permanent marker and won’t budge!

The tracks for the Repressor were given a spray of Mechanicus Standard Grey.

I then did a heavy drybrush of Gorthor Brown. The tracks, once dry, I then gave them a wash of Agrax Earthshade Shade. I then did a heavy drybrush of Gorthor Brown. The tracks, once dry, I then gave them a wash of Agrax Earthshade Shade. After painting and shading them, I drybrushed them lightly, first with Leadbelcher. I then did a very light drybrush with Terminatus Stone.

The next step was to paint and highlight the iconography.

This is to brighten up the purity seals and other iconography after it was dulled down by the shades and washes.

I wanted to give the model a wash to add shadow, so shaded the model using Seraphim Sepia Shade.

This is the Repressor with the front turret and dozer blade. I am liking how this now looks. I did notice that there was some iconography on the front track guard which I had missed.

The next step will be more shading of the model.

Iconography on the Inquisitorial Repressor

“I do like this model and I am intending to get one to use with my Daemonhunters army as a transport for the Storm Troopers”.

I did get one that Christmas as a present. Though I actually started building and painting this model back in 2007, I recently retrieved it from storage and decided that I would try and finish painting it. I realised I had made quite significant progress and it wouldn’t take too long to finish it off.

Having sprayed the model with Citadel Zandri Dust. I started the detailing, using Leadbelcher on the weapons and the exhausts. The next step was painting the iconography and purity seals.

I decided that I would go down the full inquisitorial look for the iconography, as opposed to doing stone or bronze on some of my other vehicles.

For the skull I used Ushabti Bone. Once shaded this will then be highlighted with more Ushabti Bone and then White Scar for the highlights.

I painted the inner part of the Inquisition symbol with Mephiston Red. The outer part was done with Retributor Armour. I was pleased with how this went and how it looks.

I painted the purity seals using Ushabti Bone for the paper and for the wax seals I used Mephiston Red.

For the eagle and Inquisitorial symbol on the back ramp I used Retributor Armour.

The next step will be shading the model.

Here is the Repressor with the dozer blade and turret.

I had used shades on the blade and the turret. I still have some work to do on the iconography before I shade the rest of the vehicle.

Painting tracks

Having started repainting my Land Raider, a MkIIb Land Raider, the Razorback and the Repressor, I decided to paint the tracks. Having liked what I did with the Deimos-pattern Rhino tracks, I went with the same process.

I had done a few different things with the different tracks, but most had a black undercoat.

I gave the Land Raider tracks a spray of Mechanicus Standard Grey.

I did the same for the Rhino tracks.

The tracks for the Deimos-pattern Rhino are much better than the tracks you get with the Rhino kit.

The next step will be a heavy drybrush of Gorthor Brown, then a wash of Agrax Earthshade Shade. The tracks will be finished off with a light drybrush, first with Leadbelcher, then Terminatus Stone.

Refreshing the Repressor

The Repressor tank is often used by Sisters of Battle as transport, and by the Adeptus Arbites in an anti insurgency role.

The Repressor is an Imperial armoured personnel carrier (APC) based on the standard Rhino chassis. The Repressor is used by both the Adeptus Arbites as a riot control and crowd suppression vehicle, and by the Adepta Sororitas as an infantry transport during intense urban battles. The Repressor uses an extensively converted Rhino chassis; the transport compartment has been greatly expanded upon, a raised roof featuring firing slits for the passenger’s weapons has been added, a large dozer blade used to plow through debris and rioting mobs is attached to the front of the vehicle, and the vehicle possesses a small forward cupola-mounted turret.

I said  in a blog post back in 2004 “I do like this model and I am intending to get one to use with my Daemonhunters army as a transport for the Storm Troopers”. I did get one that Christmas as a present.

Though I actually started building and painting this model back in 2007, I recently retrieved it from storage and decided that I would try and finish painting it. I realised I had made quite significant progress.

I was using Tausept Ochre as the base coat, though as you can see the basecoat wasn’t covering the black undercoat very well.

At one point I decided that I would try using Citadel’s spray gun to base coat the rest of the Repressor. However due to thinning the paint too much I didn’t get the result I hoped for. It was really at this point it got put away.

However having liked the paint scheme I was using on my Deimos-pattern Rhino, I decided that I would paint the Repressor using the same method, but not necessarily the bright yellow of the Rhino.

The first thing I did was spray the model with Citadel Zandri Dust.

This certainly covered the model well, and looked better than the Tausept Ochre paint.

The next stage will be the detailing in Leadbelcher before shading the model.
