Foolishly started messing with the Rhino kits when I should have been painting Orcs. Did finish the Orc Shaman though, bar one bit of patching on his right wrist where there’s about a 3mm gap to his arm. Thinking of just extending his collection of bangles down that arm. Might be tricky to do now he’s fully painted. The new style Rhinos rock! The kits go together ridiculously easily and the interior detailing is lovely. Chaos options are nice too. I’m thinking of turning the interior of the first Rhino into a massive gullet. Make the rear deck a big open mouth with gs details. I’ve cut open side hatch open and will make that an open mouth (so you can see the interior), cut the other away and make that a closed toothy mouth. Fill the interior to rippling veins and canker sores etc. Some tricky blending between red interior and camo green exterior possibly. Must finish my Orc MH warband first though!
Marnie in Aussie sends me a couple of Chaos Rhinos! Damn these new style Rhinos are great! I suggest a box of Chaos Termies and 7 new Raptors for all my Termies + 2 Librarians. Thinking of Nurgle Rhino with a fair amount of green stuff involved. Nice pus dripping from roof interior and Nurgling Infestation (sorry ‘mutant armor’ in the new Codex). Thinking of trying to sculpt a couple of crucified Nurglings (sad and angry) and rtv/resin casting them. I should be able to do them as a one sided mold with some undercutting. Depends on how many flat areas I can find on the Rhino to ‘nail’ them to. Need to grab a base or two of these guys for scale (and for character infestations). Also thinking of covering the Rhino with blister sores and painting them red/yellow inflamed…like some really nasty rash. Should be easy to do with green stuff.
Finished Imperial Guard Catachan – only 2 more to go to finish that damned squad!
More casting for Mordheim tower, added parapet. Started converting 3 WFB Flaggelants into 40k Imperial Preachers.
