Storm Wardens Crusader Complete











I don't normally add crew to vehicles, but since this was a special project, I decided to add two tech marine crew members to the Storm Wardens land raider Tempest. In order to storm warden it up a bit, I added a deathwatch arm to the gunner, and positioned him so it looked like he was using a scanner to fine some xenos filth. I don't recall ever reading about tech marines being seconded to the Deathwatch, but I like the idea. I think this helps the LR blend in a bit with the rest of the storm wardens army.

If I haven't mentioned it, it is a bit intimidating to included in the Storm Wardens group. However, knowing that this LR is going to transport miniatures painted by that illustrious bunch makes this project that much cooler for me personally!

  1. Hi John

    This looks great! What colors did you end up using for the dust weathering around the base?

    Don't forget to paint little black dots on the gun barrels, or the tank'll have no luck firing.

    Cheers

  2. Looks really nicely detailed! I did expect to see more silver panelling though - all the other Storm Warden models have quite a lot of silver in their livery afterall...

  3. I followed your recipe. I used calthan brown/bleached bone and then over-dusted with more bleached bone mixed into the air brush.

    Gun barrels on the todo list.

  4. I must admit I'd forgotten it, so thanks for the reminder, I'll be adding some of it to the bottoms of my Drop Pods.

    Cheers
