40k Genestealer Cult - Leman Russ Exterminator painted!

Got a fair bit of painting time in today and finished off the Leman Russ Exterminator! Carried the colors through from the Acolytes with the blue, white and yellow, and it turned out pretty well I think...


Added in some stripes on the dozer blade to match those on the Rockgrinders, and laid in some further vehicle identifier stripes on the front of the side armour. Went with the bright blue-white halogen lamps to match the Rockgrinders as well (again, my usual yellow headlamps would get lost in all the other yellow bits).


The turret weapons are magnetized so it can also be run as a Vanquisher should some more anti-tank firepower be needed. Tried out the dirty white recipe used on the Acolyte's armor on the tank crew's fatigues to help tie them together. After that it got some sponge weathering on various edges to dirty it up and it's good to go!

May bounce back over to the Imperial Fists next and reward myself for all this painting with some build time!

Heresy. By The Allfather, nothing but Heresy -_-

As always - you're a beast knocking this stuff out so quickly! Looks fantastic. If anything, you could get away with more white/yellow, maybe carried up onto the turret itself.

Nice. I love the weathering on the armor skirts.

Peter Ball said...

Lovely piece of work!

Dai said...

Is that freehand on the side I spy??? Very nicely done.

Love the medley of colours on this. Looks very cool mate. The skin with purple is also a really nice touch.

@Zab: Haha!

@Frothing Muppet: Thanks man! I tried to sketch some 'genestealer spine' motifs on the side armour but just couldn't get the look right.

@Col. Hertford: Cheers!

@The GunGrave: I appreciate it!

@Zzzzzz: Indeed!

@Col. Ackland: Thanks! I admit a weakness for the KV-2 look!

@#2501: Thanks very much!

@Peter Ball: Thanks man!

@Dai: A little bit, I can usually manage a numeral or two without mucking it up too badly but that's about the extent of it. Hah!

Thanks for all the kind words, everyone!

Greg Hess said...

Love it! It's so great I wanna loot it!

Mordian7th said...

@Greg Hess: Hah! Thanks man - it already has a half-orky vibe to it with the big slab-sided armor! Cannot recommend Blood and Skulls kits enough, he does excellent add-ons!

Great work on it! The blue armor looks fantastic as well as the chipped paint. I especially like the purple on the acolyte's skin, very sinister looking.

Mordian7th said...

@Joe B: Thanks very much! Still learning to weather properly, reading all the tutorials I can lay my eyes on. :)

huge and colorfull - way to go Cult :D

@Manus: Thanks! Definitely an odd color to paint a tank but seemed appropriate to the color scheme of the army as a whole! :)
