Terminator WIP begins!

Well the terminators WIP begain late yesterday and is ongoing. Instead of assembly line painting them like I basecoated them, I took one model out and plan to finish it to see if I like the color scheme and basework that I have in mind. Here's a few pics of the progress, it's nowhere near finished:

The helmet is pretty much done along with the powerfist except for some highlights on the metal bits and touch-up. The rest is basecoated and the base is obviously bare at the moment. The limbs are magnetized like I did some of my Black Templars as well. I can't think of a color to paint the stormbolters casing, so any ideas on that please let me know. I plan to finish this guy up sometime this week if time permits.

Here he is assembled:

And my little dog keeping watch for any stray bits that fall from my desk so he can chew on them!

Thanks for looking!

Rhino complete (well almost)

Rhino is pretty much complete paintjob-wise, just needs some dirt weathering to match my minis. These photos arent the best (I've been saying that alot lately) but I really hope to get them all outside for the lighting soon.

Thanks for looking! Terminators are next!

Greeeey Kniggghttsss!... wait, what?!

picked these up at the local gamestore on discount:

not abandoning the sharks or bandwagon jumping, I just figured it was too good a deal to pass up (plus I think the old metal ones look better!) I'll get to these guys eventually.

I'll be back to finishing up the Rhino and those poor terminators as soon as I finish this here Black n' Tan!

Happy St. Patricks's Day!

Rhino details: to add "eyes" or not?

I'm debating on adding eyes to the mouth n' teeth on my rhino. Think of the A-10 nose art:

I got a spare rhino side I use to test junk out before applying it to the real model. What do you think of eyes being added?

I need feed back on this, so help me out - Yay or Nay?

My first Classic Rhino

Got this lil' gem in the mail today.

Its in ok shape (no missing exhaust pipes hatch guns, etc.), but not nearly as rough as some of the other items I've proccured off ebay in the past. So far I've fixed the rear end bar where flags used to go, and you'll notice the paperclip being fashioned into a replacement gripbar-thingy that circles the rhino as well.

I cant decide which army I'll have this rhino be apart of - my Black Templars or Space Sharks. I'm leaning towards BT's at the moment because I got some ideas in mind accesory-wise.

More to come!
