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...


  1. Looking good dude. I assume that you'll be weathering it to make it look a bit dirtier.

    You really managed to airbrush foundation paint? Wow, never tried it. How's d consistency? You must have really thinned down the paint to achieve such a nice clean result.

  2. Yeah, I will prob weather it up later, but I want tutelage on that first. I've never really been very good at the whole weathering thing.

    I thinned it down with Windex and it worked out pretty good. I didn't have any clogs or spitting at all...

  3. So.. that's how a FT Rhino look like.. Great! I was expecting a red one much like the rest of the BA out there. This is nice :)

  4. When are you all leaving KL?
    Keep me in the loop too, guys. I will have to drive my daughter to SP first then meet you all in Penang later....for some Combat Drug action....if you know what I mean.
    I assume it is going to be Friday eve, right?

  5. I just made up the scheme- I don't think I've ever seen a GW canon Flesh Tearers army before. From the look of Seth's paintjob in the advance orders section, I've already got the paint scheme for the chapter wrong hahahahaha!!!

  6. @Doc- No dude, we're making a day trip out of it. We're meeting at my place at 7:00 AM and driving up. Right after the tourney is done we're getting right back on the road for the trip back. No staying in Penang this time around.

    Hopefully, this tournament starts on time and there are no delays. I'd like to get home at a quasi-reasonable hour...

  7. What time is the Patrol? Coz meeting at your place is not an issue but what time you are going to leave KL is the issue.
    Road trip sounds good but I'll have to pass, on this one, guys! Need to drive my daughter to my mon's place on Friday. So. I will see you all on Saturday then.
    Safe trip, guys.

  8. LOL you signed up and don't know when it is??!!! Hee hee!

    The event starts at 2:00 PM according to the rules pack, with registration shortly before that. Three rounds of 1 hour each max.

  9. Nice work on the rhino ... that tear/blood drop really works
