Rogue Trader Predator!

So after I finished the Land Speeder a couple of weeks ago I decided to crack on with my Rogue Trader Predator Tank that is destined to join my Salamanders Army.

This morning I finished off the lights/lamps, tracks and guns....

I decided to go for a gold finish on the weapons barrels to provide a good spot colour and a fairly calm yellow for the lamps; toned down with a brown wash. 

In the afternoon I moved onto a few markings for this venerable vehicle....

I decided to keep it simple on the main chassis with images copied directly from the 1989 Space Marine painting guide. In light of this I went for a fairly simple flame symbol in yellow and the original 80's Salamander chapter symbol + free text in white.

On the turret I went for a nice free hand gothic numeral three to tie it in with the two Rhinos that have preceded it. Overall I'm happy with the salvage job I have done to save this lovely old model and I can't wait to play with it. Next I'm going to paint up some free hand banners for this models flagpoles.....I'll keep you posted!


  1. Hi!

    Beautiful work on the Predator! It really harks back to the classic Rogue Trader look and I am totally envious of both your haul of old models and your freehand skills!

    All the best!

  2. Many thanks on all counts!

    I wish I had more chance to practice my free hand symbols!!
