...Said the Spider to the Fly - Freehand/Creepypasta Land Raider

So, a pretty unusual one here...
My client wanted a pair of land raiders with creepypasta illustrations on them, which is something I hadn't really associated with the more over the top look of 40k, but I think the sombre horror stuff works pretty well as a bit of an understated alternative to the elaborate gothic whatsits in 40k.

The Land Raider is one of the oldest of the post-2nd edition kits still in service, and I think that the older, less detail-obsessed look worked well with the mural feel on these vehicles, looking more like a weird/updated version of nose art than it might on the new stuff that looks like they tried to make a tank out of a metal cathedral.
