Leman Russ Turrets and Barrels
The Forgeworld turrets I have had for a while; are from eBay. I got a load all from someone leaving the hobby. I was very lucky.
The barrels are the Tyrant Cannon from Beyond the Tabletop.
The three chassis were second-hand, bought from a friend who had them with three Vanguister Turrets. I kept those and painted them up for someday – maybe.
I think I will struggle to field a Vanquisher, let alone three. They are better now in the new Codex, but that one shot is off-putting. They are BS4 with that new +1 to Hit for the turret, but still, there is that chance of failing, and they will do absolutely nothing.
So I did those three Battle Cannons using the Tyrant Cannon above. Now I have three new Leman Russ with six new turrets and plenty of options for the future.
I used this tutorial from Blood Moon Painting on Instagram. Using these paints;
- A mix of black and Evil Sunz Scarlet
- Then just Evil Sunz Scarlet
- Then Troll Slayer Orange
- and then White
- Finally, a layer of ‘Ard Coat for extra shine
