I've had a Mark I Land Raider sitting on my shelves for about ten years.I picked it up from a guy in a game store I used to hang out at who wanted a new one and was complaining his Mark I looked terrible compared to the new (at the time) current Land Raider model. Most folks have forgotten, but the Mark I had been out of print for ten years, ten years ago, so I jumped on the chance to get an old model of such legendary status as the Land Raider was at the time. I offered to buy him a new one, and I was able to add a Mark I to my collection. I've always liked to use old Marine models in my Chaos armies, as it leads to a sense of authenticity.
Last weekend, I decided that my Mark I had seen better days. It was dusty, terrible paint job, and either needed to be sold or given a new lease on life with some new paint. I decided to try painting it in the style of my new nurgle marines with some edge highlighting. I think it came out pretty well. I'm not 100% done, I still need to highlight the edge highlighting, though I thought I would post some pics showing how good a twenty year old model can look with modern painting techniques.
I gave the model a good brown basecoat with Army Painter primer.
I then gave it an airbrush coat of a reaper green.
A few more details and I am almost done. The only real remaining details is cables on the weapons and the final edge highlights.
