Well... We've all been there.... drunk, asking your self why drink so much... and getting older.....
Happy birthday then..

I spend last night painting something else but marines. I don't understand how you guys manage to paint 1000 marines and not get boored. After 10 I really needed to start with something new.... So I unboxed a Rhino and started painting the inside.
I've never really done anything freehanded so the result is... fairly OK i guess. Probably I will do some minor touchups (like repaint the eagle) before gluing it together, but here it is.



Things I'd like to do better (in no special order):
- Glowing eyes... how cool isn't that?
- Urban basing... There are so many ways to do this cool.
- Freehand texting... It can always get smaller...

Seriously guys... getting this praise from you guys (drooling at your work, guys...) means a lot to me. Thanx.

Hopefully I'll get the interior a little bit more crisp.
How the outside goes... we'll see as I've never painted a that large vehicle before. But I have some ideas.

Hmm... where did I put my pencils....

Freehanding... is not really my shit it appears......
Some day I might be good... but for now, that wolf will be removed by a new layer of grey.

Well my camera I use for macro shots has died, so I've used the iPhone, pics aren't the greatest, although this could be because of my feeble camera work rather than any fault of apple's!







This is the five of them. I think once they're totally cleaned up they'll be fine, but it'll be a lot of work. some of the different colourd bits are where I've used miliput to fill holes, but some is from the mould I think. The walking one's chin for example, is covered in some funk which I've kind of shaped into fur... pain in the arse, and still loads to do! Bah!

Thanx. They will look awesome when painted I believe.. =)

I have tried to fix one of the wolves that looked the worst... The big holes are fixable, but the small ones are just soooo many... Probably not useable when you are as picky as I... but it's good practice.

Still waiting for the replacement ones though.... If they have not arrived at the end of the week I suppose I must contact the company again.

Fingers crossed they'll tip up. The Lycan ones took about 3-4 weeks to arrive, they get posted from somewhere miles away.

Loveing what you've done with the inside of the rhino mate, looking sweet :-)

Hey Guys...
I would like your thoughts on my color choice.
A pure SW blue is something I want to avoid as I'd like to keep the models interesting and not only one color...

How about this?
SW Grey + Shadow Grey as base with Fenris Grey on the deeper parts on the side
Ilyanden Darksun + Golden Yellow on the side
Adeptus Battle Grey on doors.

Would you say that this Rhino looks interesting and/or SW'ish...???
