Armoured Infantry Fighting Vehicle... IN SPACE!

I was supposed to be painting Terminators this weekend, but I got so excited by my kitbashed, rescued, Razorback that I painted that instead:

 Front: 'HECTOR'. The business end of the Phobos-pattern's lascannon and twin plasma gun main armament. The old bolters look pretty cool too if I do say so myself. The markings signify the second company (yellow rectangles), Righteous Fists (fist marking) and that it's not just a Command Squad's transport (skull) but the Captain's (laurel wreath). The smoke dischargers still have their red warning covers in place as they've not been fired.

 Left: Visible are the gunner's chapter heraldry and the vehicle's tactical marking on the doors. The green box houses tools, I suspect.

 Rear: Brake lights and running lights, as well as a power junction box for the improved communications array.

 Right: Tactical marking again. The gunner has a reversed Mechanicus skull-and-cog on his right pauldron, signifying that he serves in the Chapter Armoury but is not a full member of the Adeptus Mechanicus. Visible behind the searchlight is a box housing more C3 gear.

And finally... I have done another Terminator, so two down three to go (one of whom is currently having a Fairy Power Spray bath). I have the Terminators and the Command Squad sat on my painting table so it's a toss-up who'll be done next.

Painting Points: 6
2013 Total: 165 (109x 28mm, 2x 54mm, 4x tanks, 2x spaceships, 2x 28mm 'cavalry')


  1. I am an Old School Man myself. I have a bunch of old school Rhinos that require repair and repainting. Another project. I really like what you have done.

    1. Thank you! I'd love to see your take on the original RH1N0 - something I'd love to have more of (I'm very proud of the two I do own, and this rescued Razorback).
