Word Bearers Land Raider WIP


A heavily-converted Word-Bearers Land Raider... The Sword of Hatred! Unlike the Night Lords Raider I put up a while back, this one is going to be painted in a timely fashion. I started a few hours ago, and will have finished pics up in a few days. Enjoy!


The preacher bellows out thunderous words of impurity and hatred, all to glorify the loathesome gods he serves! The pulpit rests atop the heavy bolter turret, which seemed appropriate while I was making this... that way, the enemies of the XVII Legion will believe and die - in that order. He is flanked by acolytes on either side, who assist his sermon by pouring bolter-fire into the ranks of the unbelievers. The Dark Apostle will be fastened to the tank by magnets, so he can be detached and used as a regular model in the game. Sometimes you've got to do your smiting up close and personal.


Most of the bits I used are from the Fantasy Warshrine kit. From the moment I saw that model, I knew I had to combine it with a Land Raider...


For a project like this, Forgeworld is a must.


I'm seriously considering crucifying a space marine on that chaos-star thing behind the preacher...

  1. You should absolutely crucify a space marine on that chaos-star thing behind the preacher...

    If you want to go really crazy, it could even be a Slanneshi CSM...or Daemon...
