Nurgle Heavy Landraider by Falassion Nurgle Heavy Landraider by Falassion
A Heavy Landraider, made from an Emhar Tadpole model, converted to be carrying two lascannons on the sponsons and a twinlinked heavy bolter on the hull. I used Ork heavy weapon wheels on the front to assist climbing trenches and installations, there are parts from Groms chariot mainly the braces and the skull on the front which can't be seen at this angle, various Nurgle markings and a few armoured plates to cover up holes in the tank model. The back has a smoke launcher and access via a set of doors that would open to allow troops to disembark from the rear in the safety of the long tadpole like rear tracks.

Overall a hugely fun model to build and convert, I highly recommend this kit as not only did it have a limited run but it is perfect size at 1:35 for medium to large heavy tanks. Much more impressive than a Linebreaker Squadron and almost as large as the Baneblade model this is going to be the centrepiece of my Nurgle army.

The details in the model are astounding! I love all the rivots and the rust effect looks amazing! It truly looks as if its been in a field somewhere, waiting for battle!

Only issue I see with it is being able to turn on the spot and not get stuck up on buildings.

I love this. Excellent work! This is exactly the kind of thing I planned to do with my Emhar Mark I model ( I have the "female" variant with machine guns and the "male" variant with cannons)

This is what I like about Chaos or Orks; their vehicles can be very different from Imperial Vehicles and it will still seem legit. That's a great centre piece :)

Falassion Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2013
Ahh yes! I was going to get one of those but I prefer the almost gothic look of the mark 1! Infact this is the mark 1 tadpole which never got used, notice the longer track fins towards the rear for bridging large gaps :)

Cool! I also remember that in WW1 conditions, they used 4x4 boards under the tracks so the tanks would have better grip! The only problem with that though is that they couldn't turn then.
