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.
