With my standard Imperial Guard army so close to being complete I decided a month or two back to branch out into Militarum Tempestus. It allows me to expand my army while being an excellent ally force for other armies. As such I chose a seperate colour scheme but one I felt complimented the colour of my 71st.
I’m kicking the project off with a Taurox Prime from one of the two Hellrain Brigades I’ve purchased. I was inspired by some of the modern vehicles used in the middle east and felt the models are well designed to fit this colour scheme. I’ve gone my usual route of heavy weathering over a simple paintjob and I couldn’t be happier.
I have to admit, I had planned to pick up the wheel kits for my Taurox but after assembly I found I actually quite liked the tracks. Without all the gold trim they start looking a little bit more sensible so I went with it. It would be a relatively easy job to switch them later but I doubt I will.
So there’s my new Taurox. I’d love to hear your thoughts on it: the colour scheme, the weathering, the odd tracks. Comments are always welcome.
Until next time, bye the noo!
