Carcharodon Space Marine Vindicator

Hello everyone,

This will be a very quick post just to share some finished pictures of a Carcharodon Space Marine Vindicator Tank I finished this afternoon.  Its for a 1850 point army I’m using this Saturday at GW Mt Gravatt 40k tournament.  The army list is basically the same one I took the ADFWGA Championships I played in earlier this month, just with a Vindicator tacked onto that list.  Yes, I’m using the Space Wolf Codex again…  Its addictive…  This isn’t the first Vindicator I’ve painted recently either.  You may remember I added one to my Iron Hands Space Marines a few months ago.  The kit that ended up being the Carcharodon Space Marine Vindicator was meant to be a second Iron Hands one, however it wasn’t meant to be.

The reason I decided to add a Vindicator to the list was that I felt one of the weaknesses of the list was that it has no real creditable way of dealing with heavy infantry such as Terminators, Ork Nobz, Paladins and Main Battle Tanks.  Yes I can deal with them, but in the past I just got lucky and was able to dispatch these foes… I don’t like relying on luck in my planning.  So a Carcharodon Space Marine Vindicator was in order.  The Vindicator has a massive buff now in 6th Ed thanks to the new rules for template weapons and if positioned well in cover or held in reserve to deal with anything that gets too close, it’s a real threat and my opponent had better factor this into his plan otherwise he’ll end up on the wrong end of a S 10 AP 2 Ord. Large Blast, and at 115 pts, why wouldn’t you? Plus it looks bad ass.

Ok, enough yakety yak, here are some pictures.

Don’t know why I added in the one of the Land Raider with the Vindicator, thought it just looked awesome.

I’ve also been doing a bit of work on the Forge World Realm of Battle Cityscape boards too so you should be seeing a post on them in the next few days, until then bye for now

    Looks great mate, love the weathering and the iconography. Totally agree with your thought process – there is nothing quite as satisfying as dropping a demolisher shell on a group of paladins then rolling up a “Hit”

    Looks awesome!

    The picture looks quite shiny – does it only look like you used metal paint over grey or did you do that actually?
