[WH40K] A new Predator

Actually it was some time ago I ended this project, but I didn’t found the time to write about it. I sold my old preds on ebay and got me this new one. I like the “new” design. My old Chaos tanks were littered with spikes, skulls, blood, and this stuff, but

I found a Chaos front from Forgeworld in my Bitzbox. I also magenetize all the weapon options. This brings a bit more flexibility.

After that I dry bruched the whole tank with a mix of Squig Orange and a dark brown followed by Boltgun Metal. I washed the whole tank with Nuln Oil. and brushed it again with Boltgun Metal.

After the dry brushing with metal I intensified the left rust marks with Squig Orange and the metal scratches with Mirthil Silver. I also painted the chaotic fixtures with Shining Gold and hilghighted them with a mix of Shining Gold and Mirthil Silver.

An Iron Warriors tank also needs those black and yellow stripe sheme somewhere and I decided to put it just on the side weapons so the tank wouldn’t look too overloaded. I started with a layer of Skull White followed by Golden Yellow and a mix of Golden Yellow and Sunburst Yellow. I added a layer of Gryphone Sepia to produce some shades. Then I painted the black stripes with Chaos Black. After that I highlighted the yellow area with a mix of Golden Yellow, Sunburst Yellow and Skull White. I repeated that by adding some more Skull White. I also gave the black stripes a highlight with a mix of Chaos Black and Skull White.

I really like the result. It’s definetly an Iron Warriors tank, but it looks clean.
