Here are the pictures of my first Rhino

And this is what I have added to it. I have cut out the Red Corsairs symbol out of plastic card and glued it to the top doors and painted it to match my avatar picture.

Posted Image

I want to cast this symbol so I don't have to do it again but its already finished and worried about wreaking it. After I do it I would like to put another symbol on the side, but just the fist

Here is the current WIP of my other Rhino the one I bought on Kijiji. I going to cut up a cheap strainer and cover the openings for a chain-link fence to make it look like a Dog pen or kennel, with a 'release the dogs' feel.

I painted this using my airbrush, but I ran out of paint. I'm looking to buy new paint but I dont want to use GW paint. I would like to try Vallejo paints.

Going home. I will add more tomorrow at work. If you have any comments feel free. I will get this up to date so bare with me

Wow. Nobody would guess both rhinos were painted by the same person oO
Although the first one's decoration is top notch, I personally feel it lacks some highlighting and depth.
The second one's weathering is just plain awesome - if you add some icons like on the first one, I'll be as jealous as a fellow chaos lad can be.
And that's a lot. ^^

thanks for the kind words.

The black Rhino was my very first vehicle. Its mostly Chaos Black primer and lightly dry brushed codex grey. The symbol I did this year.

The weathered Rhino was my experiment rhino. I tried different weathering techniques. I got this one in poor shape. I keep meaning to get back to it but I have alot to do.

Not sure is anyone remembers my Huron Blackheart so I'll post a recent picture

Most of this can be found in my Hall of Honor Thread. This is more for Works in progress. (which I have alot of I cant seam to finish anything)

Dude, I can't get over that Rhino hatch with the Corsair symbol; that's :) ing gnarly. The weathering looks good too, looking forward to seeing more!

Edit: On a second glance, I did notice the exaust pipes on the rhino... they would look much better drilled out on the top. Other than that, great man!

Thanks. It was hard to do. I think it will be easier to cast then to cut out another one.

I was wondering about that. Do people normally drill out the Rhino exhausts? what diameter? I also want to know about the side grooves, Are they vents too or just visual? I've seen rhinos with smoke dust there. I also assume that the circular vent on the top back is the air intake?

So in March of 2011:

I worked on converting my berzerkers. I started ripping the heads off them, (Because I dont like the rabbit ears) and filing down the khorne symbols. They are still going to be my berzerkers I just dont like them looking like berzerkers.

Here is what my berzerkers look like before (mind you I only painted 2)

Here is my test model. The shoulder pads will be black with red trim

I bought a SW pack kit and I wanted to make them my Chosen and with the extra heads (56 of them) I choose to use for these berzerker conversion. An ended up with these:

These guys were finished in May 2011 after I choose to switch codex

I got a good price for them. The paint job on them was done with an air brush and it looks pretty decent. The only problem I had was the everything is glued in to place. The turrets, Storm bolters, doors, hatches and even the front window cover.

For my army, well the Chaos part of it, only needs Rhinos. So the first thing I needed to do was take apart the Predators. Luckily, the main turrets on both, only had a bit of super glue. So with some force they came off easy. With a bit sanding it was easily cleaned as well. The sponsens were easier to come off. Woot I have 2 more Rhinos! But I didn't spend money on Predators just to make Rhinos. I plan to magnetize them to switch back and forth for when I switch over to Space Marines. The problem I have with them now is the back and top hatches are glued and not budging.

The Razorback's top hatches switch from Rhino Hatch to Plasma/lasscannon turret. The Plasma/Lascannon turrets are also glued in place. With force I managed to separate them into each piece. I then pinned them so it now pivots up and down and the turret also rotate. Again the back hatch and the Storm bolters are not budging.

There are nothing wrong with the SM missile launchers or the Dreads. Although for the dreads, I will need to buy bases as these ones didn't have any.

The next step would be if I should paint them all or not. Now My army, being the Red Corsairs, they pretty much take technologies and refit them. So should I leave them the way they are and just put a red 'X' on them? Should I do the hairspray method and paint over them and scratch way the top layer paint to show the colours underneath? Or do I just paint them in my colours?

Suggestions really needed as I still havent touched these

Just red X on the top is too simple - and not so impressive, as full-painted red-black models. So if I where you, I'd like to re-paint them all.

Speaking about 'zerks and last guy. They looking good, but isn't paint-scheme a bit... frequent? I mean, RC have more chaotic scheme: you can't find two marines with the same painted armor parts. Still, this can be your own theme of the army, so I'm just asking :D

IMHO, of course

Thanks DarkVen, Is the Chaotic scheme written somewhere or is this based off the 'Evy Metal stuff? I prefer the one set of colours for Regular Troops and the reverse for the Elites and another for Heavy.

In the 3rd Ed. Codex it was costumary to put the Red 'X'. It wasn't until The new Codex and the 'Evy Metal Team that they took on the current Colours. Thats why I was wondering about the Red 'X'. It will show that the vehicles were recently Captured. The other option Is to use the Hairspray technique. Where I spray over His paint Job with Hairspray and sprinkle salt then paint my colours. and wash off the salt. That what his colours would show through battle damage. Like it was painted at Maaco.

As of Right now nothing has been done to them. Still White and Green.

So In June 2011 I had a few games with my Red Corsairs as SW for the First Time. They did very well.

"Huron's Wolves"

I had 2 games. both 1500pts and both against BA players.

My list

HQ: Huron Blackheart
1 Wolf Lord in Power Armour, (Belt of Russ;Wolf Tail Talisman; Power Weapon x1; Powerfist x1)

Elite:
9 Wolf Guard in Power Armour (Bolt Pistol ; Power Weapon x9)
1 Rhino

Troops:
10 Grey Hunters Pack, (Meltagun x2)
1 Rhino

10 Grey Hunters Pack, (Meltagun x2)
1 Rhino

10 Grey Hunters Pack, (Meltagun x2)
1 Rhino

Heavy Support:
5 Long Fangs Pack, (Missile Launcher x5)
1 Squad Leader (Bolt Pistol; Close Combat Weapon)
1 Razorback (Lascannon and TL Plasmagun)

1 Predator, (Lascannon (each side))

1 Predator, (Lascannon (each side))

1447pts

Not the best SW list, but it suits my play style.

My new SW list is on the First Post

The first game was C&C with Dawn of War. This was my first time using the SW codex and for that reason my opponent decided to make a fun list. It was a good game that lasted 7 turns. If it ended on the 6th turn it would have been a tie. At this point He had wiped out my long Fangs and a unit of Grey Hunters at my control point, but he failed to destroy my Rhino which contested it. Huron and His Wolf Guard and the other 2 Grey Hunter units had to foot slog for 3 turns, but finally in the 6th turn I was able to contest the other control point for the tie. We then rolled for an additional turn and rolled a 6. Game On!! Huron and his Wolf Guard wiped out the remaining unit in 1 assault for the Win!

It was a great first game. I believe that if he had stuck to his original list he would have won.

The second game was against a Friend I met from Dakka. His Dakka name is Bunker (Same Friend I got the White and Green SM from). It ended up being annihilation with Spear Head. Bunker Had the advantage for I have alot of units and rhinos. A few of the guys who were cheering me on were telling me that I have to hit him hard, because he can get more kill points off of me. The luck was in my corner (and my new dice)! ... I only lost a total of 3 kill points! He forfeited in the 3rd turn with not much left on the board.

Bunker wanted to waste away the tanks that my army pillaged from him(White and Green), he managed to wreak one and immobilize another. The other two were unscathed! After the BA retreat these tanks and many BA tanks were salvaged to be used another Day for the Lord of the Maelstrom!

VVV I added these battles into my Signature Battle Reports banners. hopefully there will be a different pattern from my Chaos VVV

July 2011

Here are some progress photos of the Land Raider I was working on. Currently I don't use the LR in any of my lists, But I spent time on it anyway. Who knows may i'll use it.

I have it set so that the side doors swing open and closed(when the lascannons are out of the way <_< ) It still needs some paint and i still have to work on the little pieces.

I also have just recently bought a Redeemer/Crusader so I been thinking of magnetizing this one to take on those parts. I'd still need to find some reference material to do this, but that will be in time. then I should have an all in one LR.

More stuff from July 2011

Because I can't Finish one project at a time I started another(another one that is not in my list). I have basecoated the AoBR Dreadnoughts I got off bunker. On one of them I decided to keep the DCCW as is. I really like the paint job. It suits on-field repairs like it was stolen from a fresh wreak after a victory.

Woot Sept! Im all caught up!

I set up the compressor, pulled out the air brush ... and spent the whole day painting. My hand were completely red (I really need to invest in some latex gloves). So I managed to paint 2 of bunkers primed only Rhinos and basecoat 25 marines before I called it a day.

Very nice fade effect.

I may get around to trying out an airbrush eventually, but the price of the compressors makes me balk. Can you imagine a 40k player balking at price? Seems funny if you think about it that way...

I don't see a garage type air compressor working well in my hobby room, but it's a thought.

I hope I get some comments I feel like im talking to myself here


I often feel that way about my own WIP threads. Sometimes I get people coming in and commenting, but other times I go for long stretches with people just looking and never saying anything. I think people tend to comment more when there is a choice to be made or an opinion being asked, otherwise they just look and move on. At least that's how I do it myself. I still occasionally do the "looks great!" comment that some people find useless, but I don't think it's useless because it let's people know that somebody is actually looking at their work in a nicer way than just having to watch a view count rise with no other feedback.

I agree, somtimes a good 'looks great' offers a good bump too and breaks up the double post, But I'm also looking for constructive criticism. I want to better myself. This rhino is my second attempt at zenithal lighting, the first was my LR. I like to know if it was done right, or how I can improve.
Another thing I tried on this rhino is some faint shading on the top
