The Land Speeder Typhoon is a versatile Space Marines vehicle that can be deployed in a variety of battlefield scenarios. It uses a repulsion plate to simulate flight and can perform low-altitude manoeuvres. The vehicle mounts a multi-missile launcher, which can launch flurries of projectiles at its targets, making it ideal for shattering infantry formations or taking out heavily armoured enemy tanks and transports.

How to paint the Land Speeder Typhoon
- Step 1: Priming
To ensure excellent paint adhesion, start by using Chaos Black primer. This primer provides a strong foundation for your paint. Apply it evenly over the entire model, ensuring complete coverage. Be patient and let it dry thoroughly. This step is crucial as it prepares the surface for the subsequent layers of paint.
- Step 2: Base Coat with Macragge Blue
The base coat is the foundation of your paint job. Use Macragge Blue paint for the primary color of your Land Speeder Typhoon. Apply this paint evenly across the entire model using a brush. Use smooth, thin brushstrokes to achieve a uniform and professional-looking finish. This step sets the overall tone for your model.
- Step 3: Shade with Nuln Oil
Shading adds depth and dimension to your model. Take Nuln Oil paint and thin it slightly with water. Apply this thinned mixture to the recessed areas of your model, such as panel lines and crevices. The thinning helps create subtle shadows and enhances the fine details, making your model more visually interesting.
- Step 4: Highlight with Hoeth Blue
Highlights make your model pop and create a realistic effect. Use Hoeth Blue, a lighter shade of blue, for this step. Apply it to raised areas like edges, corners, and prominent features. Think about where natural light would hit your model. This technique adds dimension and realism.
- Step 5: Paint Details
Now, it’s time to focus on the small details. Use Abaddon Black paint for windows and other dark details. For the crewman’s flesh, choose Cadian Fleshtone, and for any gold details, like faction emblems, select Retributor Armor. Use a fine brush and a steady hand to ensure precision in this critical step. The details bring your model to life and make it visually captivating.
- Step 6: Optional Weathering
For those seeking a battle-worn appearance, consider weathering. Use Ryza Rust sparingly to create the look of rusted metal in appropriate areas. Then, apply Typhus Corrosion to introduce a gritty, corroded texture.
- Step 7: Optional Basing
To fully immerse your model in its environment, think about basing. Textured paints, such as Stirland Mud for a rocky terrain or Armageddon Dunes for a desert effect, can add depth and realism to your model’s base. Choose a base style that complements your Land Speeder Typhoon and the narrative you want to convey.
- Step 8: Optional Varnish with Munitorum Varnish
If you want to protect your hard work and keep your paint job looking pristine over time, consider applying Munitorum Varnish. This clear varnish acts as a protective layer, guarding your model against wear and tear while preserving its appearance. Varnishing is particularly useful if you plan to use your model for gaming.
