Chaos Space Marine Rhino: Day 3

03/14/2013 Leave a comment

Bored yet? I’m not.

Not a lot done today as I had to work late again (those of you who know me will probably know why but here’s not the forum to comment on such things!) but I was able to get the tracks done and some of the spot colours are now in place.


Tomorrow’s potentially a Date Night with my Far Better Half so probably no update.

Chaos Space Marine Rhino: Day 2

And so it continues. I had to work later than normal tonight thanks to a multitue of reasons so I was only able to get some metallic work done.


As you can see there needs to be a metric fuck-ton (official term, that) which still needs to be done but I think I’m still on track.

Chaos Space Marine Rhino: Day 1

In an effort to keep my efforts on track I’ve take the potentially annoying step of updating this blog daily with updates of how my Heralds’ Rhino is progressing.

I wasn’t able to do as much as I’d have liked this evening but I was able to layer the blues to create the Heralds’ signature colour scheme.


As I’ve mentioned before, this is the first Rhino I’ve built and painted since 1993/4 so in many ways it’s helping me to come near enough full circle and reconnect with the early days of my hobby adventure.

I’ll post some more progress tomorrow.

What’s on my desk this week

Since I’ve actually managed to clear my immediate to-do pile of Chaos Marines I thought I’d share with you, dear reader, what I’m moving on to.


I’m sticking with the Chaos theme as Tim (and others) has been gently bugging me for ages to pull my finger out and get a viable fighting force. That said, I may have to be ultra beardy and field them with some Dark Eldar allies to make up the numbers.

Plus I get to paint my first Rhino in almost twenty years. God, I feel old.

We truly have a fantastic thing for the community now and long may it continue!

Dont forget there is a website which collates all your tweets relating to #miniaturemonday click the image to go if you havent seen it..

As always big thank as always goes out to @ozrax who does sterling job as #mm cheerleader, although hope you never see his outfit….

So have a slice of cake on me

Chaos Space Marines – Two Completed Squads

03/11/2013 Leave a comment

It’s taken me long enough but I’ve finally finished my first two squads for my Chaos Marine army.



I’ve been working on these for far too long, one of the squads I bought and assembled in July 2010!

I’m now working on a couple of Rhino-based vehicles and then get some HQ and Elite units ready.
