Flesh Tearers Rhino
I'm pleased with the results on this one. I had my doubts as to whether I could get Mechrite Red to spray through my airbrush, due to its grainy texture. As you can see, it worked out fine.
I undercoated the Rhino with Chaos Black spray, masked off the sides, and then airbrushed Mechrite Red down the middle. Black parts of the tank got a light drybrush of Fortress Grey, and the red areas got a light drybrush of Blood Red. Cupola visor slits were painted Snot Green with "gem" highlights of Dark Angels and Scorpion. Metal areas were heavily drybrushed with Tin Bitz, and then drybrushed again with Boltgun Metal.
Chapter symbol and 1st Company blood drop were laser cut from cereal packet card stock. It looks cool.
I have yet to determine what I'm going to paint on the front scroll. I was thinking either "Amit" or "Cretacia", but haven't decided how brave I am yet!
Tonight I'll paint as many assault troops as I can manage. I have five left to paint to be 100% ready for the CP tournament this Saturday in Penang...
