Okay totally ballsed up my entry for the army painting competition, I got a rush of blood to the head, after looking at pics of a British FV432 (which is basically what a rhino is based off) and decided to make my whirlwind more real world and put in an engine air intake, decided to put it on the front than realised that was totally not real world and replaced it on top, now I'm really pushed for time until the end of the month so why I decided to do this is beyond me, well here is the pic, quite sloppy work but I'm hoping with a bit of tlc and A LOT of paint I'll be able to hide it!

Okay folks I'm still alive and actually doing stuff.......just about! Getting some scouts finished, so here is a quick w.i.p on guys I started beards ago. The scout far left has tissue paper as the scrim on his rifle barrel the rest are using unravelled bit of twine, which I think is better, i also clipped off the magazine's on the bolters and just put the end piece back on just to make them look a bit more semi auto rifle-ish.

Edit: I also switched them over to 32mm bases because they look far better when based.

Those are looking great! What's the mesh you're using for the cloaks?

I use 4 ply gauze, I separate the gauze and cut it into rough squares, then tack it on with a bit of glue before pasting on the other layers with thinned paint of whatever my base coat will be.

I'm interested to see what kind of effect you get using ketchup.

The ketchup is part of an ancient family secret mini painting technique! I could tell you but then I'd have to pour ketchup on you and eat you!

Okay, the whirlwind I ruined trying to make look "real world" earlier in this plog is still getting converted but as a vindi laser destroyer.......I hope! Anyway a few bits from the good people at "let the dice decide" and the "plan" is to have 2 vindicators and a laser destroyer, I already have a forge world vindicator from way back so will model the other one to look like that

Okay, you can see where I'm going here. Waaay back I got the FW dread heavy bolter right arm, the sculpt is not great and I never painted if up. Well with the new rules making "twin linked" weapons more dakka, I've decided convert my own mortis H.B dread and even attempt making ammo belts, because I like starting things and not finishing anything!!!!

I think I prefer my Mortis with las- or autocannons. This could lead to some chopped up finger tips.

Oh I'll be doing the auto cannons for sure, I have a mortis auto cannon armed dread with FW weapons but I'm going to convert more arms using the cadian heavy weapon team auto cannons which are better looking to be honest
