|Emperor's Children Land Raider by Daouide on Cool Mini or Not|
Emperor's Children paint jobs can run the risk of being gaudy, and their conversions can most definitely run the risk of being tasteless. This tank safely navigates it's way around both. I really love the pale purple color coupled with the black. It's reminiscent enough of the traditional purple and pink scheme, but more subtle. There is something about lilac that just resonates with Slaanesh, maybe it's because that color is used a lot by GW on their demons. I also like that a purple shade was used on all of the metallics, it really helps tie it all together. The paint scheme as a whole is desaturated enough to come across as something that could exist in the real world.
I just had to include this rear shot as well. I think those exhausts from the Maulerfiend should be required on all Chaos vehicles, they are just so cool. Look at those track guards as well, spectacular. This Land Raider just perfectly embodies what I think of when I picture a Traitor tank. It has just the right amount of baroqueness and detail while also being subtly unnerving.
Be sure to check out more views of it on Cool Mini or Not and show the artist some love if you like it.
