Following on from other threads I've read, my plan is to have as many weapon combinations as possible on my Land Raiders.
Lots of magnets will be used, to swop sponsons and weapons around and to attempt to keep the costs down (this is costing a fortune!)

Posted Image Crusader Variant ,Twin Assault Cannons, PM Multimelta and Hurricane Bolter sponsons

Posted Image Twin Heavy Bolters and Twin Linked LasCannon sponsons

Posted Image Twin Linked LasCannons and Quad Linked LasCannon sponsons

Posted Image Twin Linked Heavy Bolters and Quad Linked Heavy Bolter sponsons

Posted Image Twin Linked Heavy Flamers and Quad Linked Heavy Flamer sponsons

Posted Image "Battlegear" Skull and Space Marine Helmet possible conversions? Your thoughts please are welcome.

Posted Image Hellhammer Turret with PM MM and PM SB, Twin Linked Autocannons and Quad Linked Heavy Bolter sponsons

Posted Image Battlecannon Turret with PM MM and PM SB, Twin Linked Lascannon and Quad Linked Lascannon sponson

Posted Image Hyperios Missile Launcher with Twin Linked Autocannons and Twin Linked Lascannon sponsons

Posted Image

Here are all the the turret variants so far: Magnetised Battlecannon or Hellhammer, Twin Linked Autocannon, Twin Linked Heavy Flamer, Twin Linked Assault Cannon, Twin Linked Heavy Bolter and Twin Linked Lascannon. Still need to make Missile Launcher turret, Twin Linked Multimelta and Twin Linked Plasma Cannon.

Posted Image

Here are all the sponson variations so far: Magnetised Quad Heavy Flamers, Quad Heavy Bolters, Hurricane Bolters, Twin Linked Lascannon and Quad Linked Lascannon. Still need to make Twin and Quad Linked Assault Cannons, Twin and Quad Linked Plasma Cannons, Twin and Quad Multi Meltas, Twin and Quad Linked Auto Cannons, Missile Launchers, Twin Linked Inferno Cannons and "Executioner" Style Plasma Cannon Sponson.

Posted Image

Here are all the completed turrets available: Twin Plasma Cannon, Auto Cannon, Twin Las Cannon, Twin Heavy Flamers, Hyperios Missile Launcher, Lascannon and Twin Linked Plasmaguns, FW Radar, Twin linked Assault Cannons, FW Whirlwind and 3 FW Razorback turrets: Multimelta, Twin Heavy Bolters and Lascannons.

Posted Image Not sure if the shield is necessary or not. What do you think?

Posted Image

WIP Triple Twin Linked Plasma Guns. The weapons are magnetised and can be swopped for meltaguns. 1 sponson down, 1 to go.

Posted Image WIP Triple Twin Linked Meltaguns. Again, weapons are magnetised.

Posted Image

A normal sponson weapon mount magnetised to accept all the twin linked variants I still need to make.

Posted Image

Another planned model is to have all this FW material added, Reinforced armour, Terminator Icons on all doors and a huge Crux Terminator Icon over the engine grills. What do you think???

I'd like to see the points cost for some of these configurations, must be astronomical! This is some excellent work brother but i have one critisism. The baneblade turret doesn't go with the rest of the vehicle due to it being covered in rivets. I'd consider removing most of them or putting rivets on the raider. I think that using rivets on the extra armour would look fantastic with the monster turret.

WOW, I've never seen so many options before! This is so cool, and a great way to save some dough.



I've really got to buy some magnets..

Very nice work and it's nice to see someone else not afraid to make variant vehicles. I have gone down a similar track only I am making variant vehicles not just weapon mounts, cool use of magnets gives more bang for buck. I am also making varied Preds eg [twin linked turret assault cannons and assault cannon sponsons] and Razorbacks eg [twin linked assault cannons]. I am working on a Pred with auto cannon sponsons but feel it may be of limited value as it can't move and shoot all weapons. So far I have kept sponson weapons mostly under strength 7 so the vehicle can move and shoot all weapons. Also like sponson weapons to balance turret weapons ie anti-troop anti-tank abilities. Will post pics as soon as camera comes back from the repair shop.

I currently have 4 Land Raiders Shinzo. One fully painted, one brand new to be made and 2 bought cheaply from ebay which are in the process of being cleaned and built properly. Some people shouldn't be left near an expensive kit as a LR (there is a lot of correctional work needed). Pictures will appear shortly on the progress made.

PS I've added FW Reinforced Armour to one of them (bought ages ago) and the shrinkage is hideous. I've had to use tonnes of milliput to make it look good. Has anyone else had this problem?

As promised, here are a few shots of the WIP of 2 Land Raiders:

Posted Image Top view of my FW Land Raider

Posted Image Front shot

Posted Image Side Shot (shows huge gaps between the FW reinforced armour parts). A lot of milliput is going to be needed to fill holes and 'pad' out gaps from the shrunken FW parts. Crux Terminator doors will be added later.

Posted Image Top view of my "Skull" Land Raider

Posted Image Side shot.

I plan on making spaced armour and more skulls on the doors. The paint job will have huge flames painted all over the front of the model. This will fit in nicely with my Legion of the Dead Chapter.

The current paint job is done by the previous owners. Both models were bought on ebay for less than £10.00 each.

Another update for my ever expanding magnet conversions. I've read on other threads the possibility of mounting demolisher cannons on a Land Raider. Heres my take on it.

Posted Image

The Demolisher cannon comes from the Baneblade kit. I'm thinking of putting the Prometheus's sensor array on top (to make it look more Heavy Support).

Posted Image

The plastic mantlet is removable to allow different turret configurations.

Posted Image

Here's a Hellcannon.

Posted Image

Here's a Baneblade Cannon.

Posted Image

Finally, a sneak preview of my next job (sorry about picture quality), a Twin Baneblade Cannon.

Here are some more updates on My Land Raider Variants that I've done over the past month and a half:

Posted Image Front shot

A lot of Cities of Death sprues have been butchered to make this. All gaps (courtesy of previous owner) will be filled and smoothed with milliput. I'm thinking of having skeletons dangling in the middle of both trackguards. Overkill?

Posted Image Three quarter side shot.

I've made my own spaced armour from plasticard which I will jazz up a bit further over the next couple of days.

Posted Image Yes that is a Quad linked Autocannon sponson!

Another something I've almost finished. A bit more milliput and a completed, working Twin Linked Plasma Cannon Turret will be ready. My next job is to make a Twin Linked Multimelta Turret.

Posted Image

Here is a shot of all the weapons I have got to make sponsons:

Posted Image

Triple Twin Linked Plasma Guns, Triple Twin Linked Flamers
Triple Twin Linked Meltaguns, Quad Linked Heavy Flamers
Twin Linked Assault Cannons
Twin Linked Plasma Cannons, "Executioner" Plasma Cannon Sponson
Twin Linked Multimeltas, Quad Linked Autocannons
Triple Twin Linked Storm Bolters, Cyclone Missile Launcher will be made into Frag/Smoke Launchers and a Twin Linked Multilaser to be mounted in a turret.

I want to make some form of Whirlwind type Missile Launcher sponson and am looking out for parts. Let me know of any other combinations that I can do. Your thoughts would be appreciated.

That's even worse if you ever decide to field an armoured company of all those freaken varients!

You there, Brother Morgan! I demand pictures of the qaudlinks autocannon sponsons. Please :tu:

Also, what is the benefit of quadlinked versus two twin-linked?


Personally, I'd say it makes a lot more sense to keep putting them on the right. Anyone who questions your decision is a Communist.

It is just dual twin-linked Autocannons if I am not mistaken

kyng72 is correct. I meant to say Twin Twin Linked Autocannons. In response to Zeller's post, here are some shots of the WIP Autocannon sponson.

Posted Image

They are 8 IG Autocannon (bought from various bitz providers), a bit of cutting/gluing/milliputting, and adding washers to be able to make them stick to the magnets. The conversion wasn't difficult, just time consuming waiting for bitz companies to replenish stock and waiting for them to arrive. I don't think I'll put the gun shield on as it will obscure to much detail and probably won't fit over the ammo boxes. Hope this gives you inspiration Zeller!

I like the heavy bolter one, and the autocannon one.

.. Monopoly just wasn't the same after I called down an orbital strike on Baltic Avenue.
.. There is no problem that 42 heavy bolters can't cure.

Another update on my "Skull" Land Raider. At the rate I'm doing this, it will be finished by Christmas.

Posted Image

I've used Milliput to fill in the gaps at the front and yes, there is a Twin Linked Multimelta turret there. I'm not sure what to put in between the skull pillars on the front mudguards. Any suggestions?

Posted Image

Here's one of my nearly finished Spaced Armour for the Skull Land Raider. The milliput flames need to be sanded, and I need to sculpt an Imperial Eagle on the end piece. Other than that, It's nearly finished. What do you think?

Holy Crap!

I'm really eager to see what the variant with the Twin-linked and Quad-linked Assault Cannons is gonna be like. I assume your working with some GW employee's to figure out points cost and come out a Data Faq sheet?

And seriously, name these truly magnificent monstrosities!!!
"There will come a time when a Marine will find himself alone. Without his Battle-Brothers to fight with him at his side. Nor will he have his holy armaments; his Bolter, his Bolt Pistol, his Combat Blades and his Grenades - all gone. Yes, even his suit of mighty Power Armor is taken from him and yet he stands resolute, devoted and most of all without fear against the foes of our beloved Emperor and his Imperium. Why does he do this you ask? The answer is simple; Faith. Faith alone can be the Weapon in your hands, the Armor about your body and the Resolve within your soul. Once you accept this fact, no matter what happens to you, your brothers or your battle-gear...you are never truly...Unarmed."
