Painted: Heresy-era Salamanders Land Raider Phobos Mk IIa

Greetings once again InterWebs!!! Still busy here but I am ever so close to being completely ready for the trip on Friday. Next up on my paint schedule was my attempt at a wrap-around tracked Land Raider Phobos MkII. I really enjoyed painting this model even though it was done quickly and the weathering/chipping is not done yet. I am also thinking of adding Roman Numeral XVIII decals on the larger tanks like this one. I am calling this model the 'Pride of Nocturne' and here she is:

I am not sure why this picture makes the model look brighter than it really is.

I used the Chapter House Studios doors because I really do not like the Forge World doors at all:

Showing the warp around Heresy-era looking tracks:

The Multi-Melta I made out of an Assault on Black Reach Dreadnought arm.

Again with a shot showing how the tracks wrap around the back end.

Another final look at the 'Pride of Nocturne'.

This conversion was a struggle to pull together but I think it really works well. I am just happy that all the little issues I had with the conversion are nicely covered/hidden by the paint. I promised myself that I wouldn't make another one of these but after seeing it all painted up I am leaning towards doing another.

That is all for now, I am off to finish up the last little bits of detail on the Legion Glaive. Thanks for stopping by and taking a look! Take care!


  1. A lick of paint covers a multitude of sins, as they say. :)

    Looks fantastic, man - great work on the build and the paint job!

    1. Thanks! I am glad the paint turned out to cover some of the areas I was concerned with.
