    Inquisitorial Land Raider - extensive conversion WIP

    ever since i got the space marine landraider right afterit came out and converted it to chaos, i have wanted to build another one, and my IG army is tank based, what better than an inquisitor in a landraider.
    this forfills two tactical gaps in my army- lack of ranged anti tank and lack of a powerfull close combat unit.

    but obviously, this is me we are taking about, so a straight forwards assembeling is utterly out of the questions, welcome to my Inquisitorial Command Land Raider conversion WIP thread.

    its not Venice, but its a nice break from making builidngs, and the first tank conversion ive done in ages.



    main modifications-
    -sponsons and door angled outwards to make way for small
    "flamer" turrets on top of the side bit.
    -hull heavey bolters moved to a turret mount, the tarantula is there only to show roughly what it will look like, Im scratch builidng a heavey bolter turret out of the plastic bits but it will look similar
    -you cant see it yet, but there is going to be an open topped command deck in the open space where the front hull bit normally goes.

    ill be working on this on and off along with my other projects.

    Uh.... uh .... what to say, the first one that sprang to mind was a bit inappropriate, but I'll PG it, dang, that's one jolly smashing model you got yourself there .

    Any chance you'll be extending the chassie back a bit, to account for the added width?

    lol, "jolly smashing", in the sense that it will jolllily smash the enemys of the emperor, ahem.

    malika- the inquisitor will indeed be part of my IG army, and he will actually be very closly integreated with it eg come from the same homeworld/ is a member of the planets tetragrammaton ruling class. im going to modle his body guard as regular IG from my army.

    strikerkc- its going to have somthing VERY similar ie the most accurate reproduction i can make, i only have to HB taratulars, and they are going on the Venice cathedral.

    Tzeentchgiant, Ive always though the landraider wasnt wide enough, i think it looks more realistically proportioned if it wider, though i will be extending the upper front bit forward abit, and the engine back abit.

    and thanks bty, watch this space.

    Re: Inquisitorial Land Raider - extensive conversion WIP

    I like the whole look of this tank, the Tarantula does look rather fitting up there, and I can just imagine what kind of amazing interior detailing you can do with the interior & open deck.

    The additions to the side are a neat idea; a combination of the MkII and MkIII Land Raider designs, seemingly. It does give the vehicle a rhomboid shape, though... and that's a bit weird.

    What will the "little flamer turrets" do?

    And since it's a Command Land Raider, what about using the Prometheus as a basis? Does 4 Twinlinked Heavy Bolters tickle your fancy?
    I would suggest that those players who think that paper tanks are cheating or disrespecting the hobby should see if they can track down a copy of White Dwarf #132. - kelvingreen

    thanks all

    the little flamer turrets will be normal flamers, but boviously, i wont use them in touranments, i will have a VDR'ed version which will be both open topped and armed with 2 extra flamers

    I would like the sound of 4 t/l heavey bolters, but my IG army currently has 2 lascannons, compared to a total of 7 normal and 2 t/l heavy bolters,
    anti infantry is not what i need unfortunatly, as cool as it would be from a modeling perspective.

    for the "command" bit, i will add extra lenses, cameras etc, but its more command as in "lead the charge" command.

    Whoa!!! so this is just a break from venice then? (he said jealous of the fact that you are obviously not putting in the kind of hours at work that I am! (enjoy it while you can))
    That is looking rather nice. Please ensure that we get blow by blow pictures of the progress.

    Will the command deck take the form of a pulpit? I would imagine so as a pulpit seems the most ideal design for an Inquisitor Lordís personal Land Raider.

    Additionally, can we expect to see extensive designs that are akin to Marenus Calgarís personal Land Raider? Mimicking the archways and columns, which appear on Marenus Calgarís personal Land Raider, would also help to tie in the Inquisitor to the terrain you have made, which presumably is supposed to represent your Imperial Guard Regimentís homeworld?

    Sorry about the abundance of questions, I am just curious.

    Very cool, like the 'pre heresy' look of the model and its so nice not to see a LR model with a transplanted Leman Russ turret on it. Like to see it with lots of Gothic stylie dress up bits. Keep us posted.

    thanks for the feedback guys,

    in answer to questions.

    the command deck will have a pulpit section
    the venice im builidng is not my regiments homeworld actually, the sethrans come from an ash wastes world with very little water, the city of sethra prime is much more industrial looking.
    i will look into marneuss land raider, i think ive got that WD somewhere. it will certainly have lots of bling.

    its sgoing to be painted black mainly, with bits of dark red and pleanty of metalics.
    Im also going to do a fair bit of freehand as its an ideal place to put it.

    Re: Inquisitorial Land Raider - extensive conversion WIP

    I love the idea of the pulpit, very fitting for an inquisitor.
    The heavy bolters also look good mounted on the roof.
    If you wanted to use the small turrets in tournaments, you could replace the flamers with bolters and call it the pintle mounted storm bolter upgrade.

    The open deck sounds interesting. I can't wait to see it on the model.

    yes you do see those words, lol, its the best way to describe it really, this inquisitor likes his 24 carrat gold accessorys.

    and it will be open topped yes.
