I've done some more to my Rhino, mainly highlights and some detailing. I'm hoping to add transfers and start the weathering process soon. I want to add lots of paint 'scratches' and other scuff details. I'm also thinking about bullet dents and other battle damage, but I don't want to mess up my nice paint job too much! It's been a long while since I've painted a tank and I've enjoyed painting the smooth finish it has now.
The camera flash shows it as being a lot lighter than it actually is. In reality, the blue basecoat is quite dark.
Also, I've finally completed my ten man Imperial Army tactical unit! Here they are in all their retro glory:
We have a Sergeant in the centre and a plasma gunner to the right. If you look closely, the trooper on the left has a camo pattern on his uniform. I wanted all of them to have this (rather than plain grey), but it took so long to do it on one model, I decided to get them finished first and think about adding camo patterns later!
Finally, there's the beginnings of a force of 'other' troopers. These are painted distinctly different than the army troops, and they are intended to be used as 'opposing' forces'. By that I mean any other enemies that the Imperials might face. Examples could include; Cult Guards, renegade or rebel troops, a planetary governor's private troops, a noble's household guard, etc. So hopefully they might turn up in many scenarios. They are also armed differently than the army troops, having autoguns rather than lasguns.
That's all for now, more to come.
