Rhino (I)

This is the first of the two Rhinos I have for the Sons of Horus.
It is not an original Forge World model and you can clearly see it. The cast is simply awful and most of the pieces do not fit together. I just added a couple of brass icons to focus the eye on them and distract you from the many defects of the model.
Because of that, I decided to give it a quick paint job, focusing on the weathering and forget about the rest.
Therefore, I just applied basic colours, without any highlight, as you can see below as a first step.

Then I started to apply inks and washes and painted some scratches. Again I tried to keep it simple, but I overdid it in most of the areas.

After this step, I just started applying enamels and pigments.

After making these pictures, I applied matt-varnish with an Army Painter spray and I noticed that most of the pigments have darkened significantly. I will keep that in mind for the next figures.

A Rhino adds 35 points to the Army.

Painted in 2017
