So, I’m not the most frequent blog poster. In fact, I should probably do better with that. But in the meantime, I’ve been working on my Chaos Space Marine Rhino for my Khorne Daemonkin. I know, I know – why am I doing anything with KDK as it looks like they may not translate to 8th edition? I’m actually hoping to get the army finished before the new edition actually drops. And one of the three units left is nearing completion.
Here I’ve used what has become my standard Khorne Daemonkin paint colors. Even my method is pretty formalized. The one change is that after the Nuln Oil wash, I used another thin coat of Evil Sunz Scarlet. I think it works well on the more standard vehicles vehicles, which have more flat surface area. Just leaving the scarlet coated with the wash was too dark. I also did some edge highlighting with the Wild Rider Red.
Using the Liberator Gold on the trim, really made it pop! Indeed, I’m really loving the look of this trim kit from The Dark Works. Especially for one of the cult style armies, those extra bits of trim give it a chaos style look without having to resort to spikes and chains. Not that I have any beef with spikes or chains per se.
The main thing left on this Rhino now is to finish the Havoc launcher and the pintle combi-bolter. I’m doing those kind of separately, more for the sake of ease. I’m hoping to get them finished up in the next day. Then I’ll blast some dull cote on the whole model and it’ll be done. Next I’ll be working on a squad of Chaos Space Marines, which I’ll paint up in the KDK colors. Then, hopefully, I’ll finish up with the big kit.
