The Predator Destructor has been a steadfast presence in the Emperor’s armies for over 10,000 years, earning its reputation as a fearsome weapon that can slaughter hordes of enemy infantry, shatter assaults, and lay waste to light vehicles. To the Space Marines, who are always outnumbered, the Predator’s firepower has proven to be vital.
This versatile tank is built upon the sturdy Rhino chassis, sacrificing transport capacity in favor of improved frontal armor and a heavy turret-mounted armament. With this kit, you can build a Predator Destructor that’s armed with a powerful turret-mounted autocannon. You also have the option of adding two sponson-mounted heavy bolters or two sponson-mounted lascannons, giving you versatility to engage various targets.
In addition to these armaments, the kit also includes an optional storm bolter and hunter-killer missile for added firepower. For even more versatility, you can also build the model as a Predator Annihilator, equipped with twin-linked lascannons to take on heavily-armored targets.

How to paint the Predator Destructor
- Step 1: Prime the model
Spray the model with a primer to provide a smooth surface for the paint to adhere to. Allow the primer to dry completely.
- Step 2: Apply base coat
Apply a base coat of your chosen paint color to the model. Use a large brush and make sure to cover all surfaces. For example, you can use Macragge Blue for the tank’s base coat.
- Step 3: Apply layer paint
Using a smaller brush, apply a layer of paint to add depth and detail to the model. This can be done by dry-brushing a lighter color onto the edges of the tank. You can use a layer of Kantor Blue or Thunderhawk Blue.
- Step 4: Apply shade paint
Apply a shade paint to add depth and shadows to the model. Use a small brush and apply it to crevices and recesses. For the Predator Destructor, Nuln Oil or Agrax Earthshade can be used to shade the tank.
- Step 5: Drybrush the model
Use a drybrush to highlight the edges and bring out details. Dip a drybrush into a lighter color and then wipe most of it off on a paper towel. Lightly brush the raised areas of the tank. For example, you can use Fenrisian Grey to drybrush the tank.
- Step 6: Detail the model
Use a detail brush to add finishing touches to the model, such as painting insignias or highlighting specific areas. For instance, you can use Leadbelcher to paint the tank’s weaponry Abaddon Black to paint the tracks and Retributor Armour to paint the Space Marines symbols and other details.
- Step 7: Seal the model
After the paint has fully dried, apply a clear coat of varnish to protect the model. Citadel’s Munitorum Varnish can be used to seal the Predator Destructor.
