Wrecked Rhino Terrain

Post by Nurgles » Fri Aug 21, 2015 9:06 am

There once was a young Rhino, born from sprue and ready for battle.
Assigned to the Blood Angels, where he received their blood red paint on his bare metal.

After millennia of warfare, he was damaged and tired,
So he was send to the Ultramarines where he retired.

They stripped him of his red paint using nail polish remover and thinner,
Molten and disfigured he no longer looked like a winner.

Broken and blue he slowly fades away, in the tall green grass.

It really looks great! It looks really realistic. And the little story is touching. :cry:

Thank you Kovlovsky and Guildenstern for your comments.

As an inexperienced painter it is nice to get positive feedback from the community, very motivating.
Stay tuned for more ;)

Very nice wear and weathering. I really like the fact that it looks sunk into the mud. What did you use to cut the hull at an angle like that?

Hi Munin,

Thank you for the compliment :D

I've used just regular cutting pliers to remove the plastic piece by piece
wich leaves ugly cutting marks, but you can mask it perfectly with gravel or grass and give it that sunken look. (i actualy didn't expect it to turn out like this)

This was my first terrain project and to be honest it was very easy/cheap and alot of fun to do.
