Default Rhino WIP, would like input

Here are some pics of my Nurgle Rhino WIP. I haven't even touched the back of it as far as adding some Nurgle goodness to it. The basic 'theme' is that my Nurgle marines just recently acquired this "transport" and the Nurgle goodness is starting to shine through. I still have A LOT of painting, shading and blending to do.

1) I am going to remodel the whole front end of it and go with a "put the old crew on pikes as hood ornaments"

2) I am also thinking of repainting the rhino as a whole to give it a better contrast. I think there is far too much green going on.

all feed back is welcome.

I love the idea of please recycle, the execution of the conversion is very well done. I dont think that you have too much green, just not enough contrast like you said. Maybe adding some washes, thraka green/devlan mud into some of that green, then highlighting over it with a different shade of green. same thing for the dead marine getting himself munched on. I find for nurgle metals, base coat of tin bitz, dry brush bolt gun, wash with black/brown, small highlights of chainmail come out looking awesome.

Thanks for the tips. I was planning on mixing up some grit with the browns and tans for the dirt around the track housing. Was thinking that might add a lot of the contrast i was looking for.

Thanks Thornin, was thinking on adding a brown wash to the Nurgle goodness when blending it in with the garbage truck. kind of like the onset of rot and pealing paint. would go a long way to brake up the green but I have always thought that "less is more". thoughts?

Ha, funny concept and I'm surprised at how much I like it.

The green is overpowering to me, but mostly because it seems flat. Wash it as others have suggested and I think you're on to something.

Excellent concept. Nice to see someone thinking outside the box. As everyone else has said, it does need toning down, but I'm sure you know that.

With nurgle more is more but yeah dong to to mental with it. Its a fun peice as it ! you may want to try washing it with a painting spounge as you can add and remove it till your 100% happy with the effect and it will give almost a bubbly stippled like effect too.

What the others have said about the painting, it needs more color and contrast. Purple can look good if done well to show necrosis. I think it needs more rot coming from the rear where the trash goes. All and all I have to say I enjoy the modification of it.

I plan on trying something new and different ( for me, I don't know if anyone else has tried this or not) for the back where the trash would go. I have bits already painted for "filler" but... Rubber cement has a dingy brownish color to it when it dries. was planning on mixing some blood and puss colors together and swirl it into the rubber cement to fill the back. add some bubbles and then matte coating it to avoid finger prints. If that works out well, then I could use the same idea for the 'seeping' effect from the seams and vents.

I'm still thinking of completely redoing the front of it. Takeing the zombies and Pvt. Jenkins off and adding pikes for the old crew to be displayed on.

@Djinn24 and Khorne's Fist, thanks for the rep mates.
