Ultramarines: Land Raider

From time to time I’ll reach into the hobby vault to feature models painted before I started this blog.

Assault Terminators pouring out of Land Raiders has always been a key image for me in 40k. So naturally, when I started playing the Land Raider was one of the first things I picked up.

Land Raider Crusader

It never performed nearly as well in game as I thought that it should, but that rarely stopped me from trying again.

Land Raider Redeemer

I magnetized the turrets to allow play with either modes, although I don’t think I ever brought it in the flamer-tastic Redeemer edition.

Resurrectionists: Crooligans

Just about every crew in Malifaux needs a cheap scheme runner. Molly gets creepy undead children in the form of Crooligans.

The models themselves are fairly straightforward, continuing the reds and greens that make up most of my Resurrectionists, although with a bonus splash of blue for color.

Also like many of my Resurrectionists, the Crooligans get both a black and red splatter. This helps keep them from looking too clean. After all, it’s tough being dead.

Resurrectionists: Night Terrors

The Night Terrors are annoying models. I don’t mean in game, I mean in real life. It was hard to line them up on their posts. They don’t fit in regular infantry spots in foam. On the plus side, they’re super fast in game.

I also screwed up assembling the models. They have front torso, back torso, and separate pieces for each wing. What I failed to realize what that the wings are keyed to go inside the torso. I didn’t realize until after I had glued some of the torsos together.

Trying to fix it, I snapped one of the arms for the dark purple Night Terror in half. Rather than fix it, I decided he would only have one pair of wings, and green stuffed the hole in.

Terrain: Raft

This simple raft is part of a growing collection of small terrain pieces in Reaper’s Bones line. I bought it on a whim and gave it a quick paint.


The model is just about big enough for one model on a 25-40 mm base. A 50 mm would overhang the sides.

The bark is Secret Weapon’s weathered wood color. The inner wood is colorful enough, I didn’t want to make the ropes any louder, so they’re just the white primer and a dark wash.
