Underneath the Typhon

My latest model for my Imperial Fists Horus Heresy force is the Typhon Heavy Siege Tank.

The Typhon Heavy Siege Tank was released as a plastic kit for The Horus Heresy. I’ve always liked the Forge World resin model and so was pleased to get one of the new plastic kits for my Imperial Fists force.

Having started constructing the model, I finished putting it together. The next stage was a white undercoat.

I had planned to base coat the underneath of the model with with Citadel Zandri Dust in preparation for painting the the whole model yellow. However when visiting my FLGS, they had sold out of Zandri Dust spray. So I bought some Army Painter Desert Yellow Spray, along with can of Army Painter Daemonic Yellow.

I sprayed the model first with Desert Yellow spray.

This is designed to add shadow.

As well as the underneath of the model, I also sprayed the wheels and suspension.

I base coated the dreadnought siege weapon with Citadel Leadbelcher.

For the tracks, still on the sprue, I gave them a spray of Citadel Mechanicus Standard Grey.
