Pre-Heresy Death Guard Mk1 Land Raider Barbarus

Taking a break from my Imperial fists and all this yellow, I decided to finish some of my Death Guard vehicles, starting with my all time favorite, the old school Mk1 Land Raider.

By the time Forgeworld released all this great preheresy material, I decided to build one of my all time favorite chapters, the Death Guard. 

As with all my projects, this started quite a while ago but I'm glad that I find the time eventually to finish off some models, the first one being Captain Garro

I decided to go with a massive weathering adding to the fluff of the Death Guard having equipment that wasn't shiny or clean, but it worked perfectly. Moreover, I wanted to have the feeling of this being an ancient machine of death, seen countless battles.

The model is heavily converted from the original Mk1 Land Raider kit, you can find some WIP pics somewhere in my blog...

I would really like to hear what you think on this one, as this is a test model as well for the rest of the vehicles and of course maybe leave me a vote on CoolMiniOrNot as usual!

As a sidenote to this post, I would like to thank the guys over Bell Of Lost Souls for featuring my Furioso Dreadnought in a great article about the future of CC Dreads on 6th edition

The music of this post is inspired by my endless struggle to produce descent photos of my models :P 


  1. The undisputable master of vehicle painting strikes back! Congratulating you does not even feel right, because it's not enough!


  2. Nice job - I feel your pain with the photos. Macro photography is bitch. Sadly nothing helps but time and trail and error.

  3. well thats a rule with everything I guess... trial and error is the only way, learning by your mistakes! Thank you for your comment!

  4. UNREAL. I swear, you get better with everything you do. It makes me want to quit painting, you are so good!

  5. Thank you Loq once again for your comments! I guess what I've said below to my previous comment about photography applies to painting too, practice makes perfect. Thats exactly the reason why you shouldn't quit and keep practicing ;)
