Heresy Era Death Guard: Rhino Complete

This guy has been complete for a few days now but I've been to busy to post.

I used exactly the same colour scheme for the Rhino as I did the Legionaries. The wash was a little dark though so i think i'll water it down for the other vehicles.
I made good use of MIG weathering powders for the exhausts. A Winton oil paint wash of Burnt Umber was applied to the whole of the model as well, which blended the powders together nicely.
The green strip is Orkhide Shade - I just taped up the tank and used an airbrush to apply it. I sponged on some skull white to break it up a bit. 

A basic Badab Black wash and Mithril Silver drybrush for the bolters:

Same for the Dozer Blade and the tracks, but some weathering powders were also applied here as well:

My only disappointment is that the washes on the hull came out a bit to dark, and they don't match the armour of the Legionnaires. I'll make sure i'll get it right next time!

  1. That looks fantastic! I feel ya on the frustration with how vehicles usually end up lighter/darker than their infantry counterparts. I struggle with that all the time. I wouldn't sweat it too much, that Rhino looks amazing! Great work, man!

  2. Ya man, it looks real good, and I would think they would be a bit more grimy than the infantry... but that's just me... and we all know how much i like REAL grimy vehicles...

  3. The vehicle wouldn't be so well maintained or revered than personal Legionnaire Armour, so it'll look different.

  4. Cheers guys glad you like! Gonna try the watered down wash next time and see how it goes. Should be assembling the next squad and rhino this weekend!
