Rhino and Predator WiP

Hey everyone,

I have some pics to show you of my Rhino chassis conversions and my first attempt at playing with Green Stuff.

First up we have my Predator:

The idea behind this tank was to make it look like the people that it has killed have been trapped within the armor. When I paint this up I am going to go for a "fleshy" look for the GS parts. Going to try to throw in some veins for good measure too

I would like to say that this was an original idea but I can't. Somewhere out in the internets there is an amazing chaos fantasy model with a custom banner where tortured souls are trying to escape. If anyone can find it I would really appreciate it. I want to give the artist who I drew this inspiration from the credit they deserve.

Here you can see one of my favorite effects that I got from this build. I was surprised at how well the GS took to me dragging the hand through it.

Next up we have the Nurgle Rhino. I was VERY pleased at how well this turned out.

This effect was just me sticking little balls of GS on the tank, tamping down the edges with a file and then poking holes in it with wire, it couldn't have been simpler.

Here is a good shot of the twin linked bolter pustule

Finally we have the back hatch and a close up of some of the rear pustules.

I gotta say I love working with green stuff. Its like playing with silly putty all over again. In the end I may end up Simple Greening that predator just so I can re do it with the Nurgle theme. Now that I know what I am doing I think I could re dress it up in about a day and I think the Rhino looks heaps better. I'll take the paint to it and see how it turns out first though. That's all I have for now feel free to let me know what you think. Questions and comments are always welcome.

Have a good one,
