Nurgle Heavy Landraider by Nergling Nurgle Heavy Landraider by Nergling
"A deafening roar came from the belly of the beast as its engines ground into action."

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.

Very nice! Is it similar in size to the standard land raider model?

Err a little longer and a little narrower than a usual one. I think it is about 2cm shorter in height too :)

Cool, thanks. I've been wanting to get a MK IV "Tadpole" to use as a land raider for a while now, but wasn't sure if it was going to be too big.

Agreed. The design is certainly more appealing than the earlier MK versions. Though the MK VIII International, both British and German versions, were neat designs.

True that mate! I love WW1 tanks they look so mechanical and almost as if they wouldn't even work! :D

Despite the horrors of WWI there is something of the period that unusually appealing. Probably because it represented a huge leap in transition from the old and into the new. I could be mistaken, but I don't think any other period in history has come close to such a dramatic change in ... well ... everything: Culture, politics, military, economics ... the list goes on.

It looks like some kind of zombie tank.

I presume that the Nurgle basically apply under the fantasy niche of zombies and undead.

do the nurgle's zombie plague respond well to some sort of pesticide, medicine, cure, or other chemical (I don't follow the lore of Warhammer40K)? Zombies (which the Nurgle apply under) could be caused by a virus (or other thing) carried by a plague carrying things like insects (which probably infest the Nurgle and can probably be commanded around by them like that bug guy from Naruto), magic oriented, or a combination of both.

No they can not be cured or reasoned with, they are magically generated from the corpses of the dead (not like voodoo which is brain damaged humans).  They also carry diseases and pass them on to their enemies during combat and are surrounded in flies and biting insects (not very nice) :D

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 :)

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.
