A Couple of Land Raiders for the Sons of Sanguinius

I have had a little bit of free time since I got back from England and while most of that free time has been taken up by an editing project that I have I did manage to sneak away for a bit and work on a few things. First off I was able to primer the Devastator Squad and a couple of Veterans for use in various squads.

Secondly I was able to get some work in on a couple of Land Raiders (Standard and Redeemer) that both needed a fair bit of love to bring them up to snuff. I have always hated the fact that an entire section of track is left exposed on the front of the Lad Raiders, while this was covered up by the Frag Launchers of the Redeemer I knew I wanted to do something with the other. After a dig around in the Cities of Death Bitz Boxes I located a nice door with an Aquila on it. After cutting it down, cutting to length, cutting out the back supports, and blending it into the hull with Greenstuff and Liquid Greenstuff I think it turned out fairly well. Here are some various in process pics along with some views of it with a brief coverage of primer (I ran out of primer but got enough to show that the 'front armor plates' do blend fairly well):

Bringing the Redeemer back to life took quite a bit of work. I am glad I had all new bits to make the rebuild a lot easier. One of the options for a Land Raider to take is a Multi-Melta and I had enough actual bits to make 1 so I knew I had to dig into the Vehicle Bitz Box and scratch build another Multi-Melta 'turret'. Both of these are removable and have a small weight to ensure that they sit and stay in their holes. Here are a couple of pics of the scratch built Multi-Melta turret:

Since I have been doing a fair amount of Blood Angel Vehicles lately I have found myself running out of various vehicle icons; so a return to the InstaMold that I tried a couple of months ago. I have learned quite a bit about using the stuff. Needless to say I have been having fun with press-molding 'bling' for the Blood Angel's Vehicles:

Well that is all for now, thank you for looking!
Take Care,


  1. Nice press molds, looks like a fun process; curious as to why you chose weights on the turrets instead of magnets. Were they too big? I couldn't tell the scale, and am less than familiar. Looks like a good time was had in England' look forward to the next post.


  2. Thanks! I am having fun with them and it is nice to be able to 'bling' up the Blood Angel Vehicles as I want to do. England was a lot of fun indeed although I didn't get to hardly see a thing while there.
