Rhino... again and a test heritic guard

Hey everyone! Got some more pics of the Rhino (hopefully better ones this time) and my first test model for traitor guard.... I call him Pig Pen

Ok, so I can finally table the Rhino thing once and for all ( for this one at least ) here are the last shots of the Rhino I am going to force on you

That's much better, as stated before, I faded Blazing Orange to Blood Red to the get the effect.

Next up we have Pig Pen my first Traitor Guard! I call him Pig Pen because I got a little heavy handed with the Devlin Mud wash so hes a bit grimy.

He was a snap to paint. Here is how he breaks down:

Base - The Army Painters "Skeleton Bone" primer
Leather (boots, belt and gun stock) - Bestial Brown
Flesh - Bronzed Flesh/Ogryn Flesh (wash)
Cloth - Gryphonne Sepia
Metals - Vallejo brand Ancient Bronze
Pox - Blood Red
Overall - Devlin Mud

As you can see it was really simple to do, after the primer dried I just filled in the leather, metals and flesh then washed the rest. What I was most pleased about this model was the Pox and the eyes. I'm not sure if you can see it in the pictures but I got both pupils spot on my first try. It usually takes me FOREVER to get that done. Also, all exposed flesh is covered in small red "welts" to represent him going over to Grand-Daddy Nurgle's side. I thought it was a nice touch.

Now all I have to do is get some static grass on there and touch up the gun barrel a little and I am good to go! Next up I will probably have another Rhino to show you. I have just painted over the old purple one in the skeleton bone and am going to try to knock it together as fast as I did the other one.

As always, questions, comments and constructive criticisms are always welcome.

Have a good one


  1. Maybe you've done this already and the pictures just aren't doing it justice, but I'd suggest painting a thin bit of the 3 light's guard-bars that stretch over the light itself. The most outward spots shouldn't be touched by the shining red light itself.

  2. He turned out nice. Now, just have him stand next to your other guardsman and cough without covering his mouth. You'll have a brand new Papy Nurgle army in no time.
