Relictors Landraider Redeemer WIP - exterior

Following on from my previous WIP post of the interior, I have gotten so far with this Landraider but not finished before I had to go back to sea and earn a living.

So, here she is, or should I say he is as it is named after my real Warhound Zeus. I still have a few detailing and bits to add. It is Army Painter basecoated Uniform Grey with a tidy up of Codex Grey which matches the paint in a can exactly, then a wash with Badab Black which I found quite difficult to avoid streaking over large panels so I applied it in vertical lines, so any streaks could have been made in the environment of the battlefield operations. Once I return home it will be a quick finish off of those details, then it's a day or two of highlighting and drybrushing Fortress Grey (oh how that stage bores me!), transfers and then finally weathering to match my other Relictor tanks and a thousand rivets, doh.

I quite enjoyed this build and when I actually sat down and painted, it was done in two day sittings. The doors were Red Scorpion FW doors but I've used the skull wound markers from AOBR just as I did before on my Rhino's to make it Relictor-ish.

Oh, and one of the real Warhound 'Zeus'.

Great looking land raider! Digging the neat details and shade work. Question: what skull markersin AoBR? I picked up 2 boxes when they first released. I don't remember any markers! Do the new sets have them?

Cawshis Clay, I believe Siph means the skull marker from the 40k template set. The marker is one of the 'wound counters'
