I'm going to try drybrushing on my next build, in fact I'm going to follow a very different process entirely. I had both of these completely built before I started painting and now have all the colours blocked in so I think I've made things more difficult for myself.
I'm glad you all like the hazard stripes, I'm really happy how they turned out. At first our colour scheme may seem very dull compared to some of the others but actually having such a blank slate gives so many more opportunities for those little embellishments, details and splashes of colour and I think that our completed figures and vehicles have a great deal more character and interest compared to most other chapters.

Hazard stripes and checkers are proper old school goodness. If you wanna go all out, add flames
Fortunately Firepower, at this rate, noone will ever need to paint one again!
Not so fortunate for me, seeing as I already endured the trial of painting 3. Over 100 hours of work, and look at the state their rules are in
Suffer not the xeno psyker kitten, as to it the souls of man are but balls of yarn and jingly amusements!

Well, happily I have both.
Hazard stripes and checkers are proper old school goodness.
Managed to sneak half an hour this morning before work and I'm really not thrilled with the way the highlights are going because, firstly, I'm just not very good at them and, secondly, I suffered quite a severe burn at work the other day (I'm a chef) over my right hand, wrist and halfway up my forearm so it's currently bandaged and quite swollen so my dexterity is not what it should be. Thus far I've only done half of one Rhino so did a bit of drybrushing on the other half. If I'm careful I think I could do it without making too much of a mess of the details I've painted so far, I'm going to finish one half with edge highlighting and the other half with drybrushing and see what I (and you guys) think is the best way to go
