The new novel Sons of Dorn has this great character of a company capt Telios who is promoted/demoted? to lead the 10th company. Since I stole Tellions head for Bulveye,I had the great body but with no head. I removed all Ultra symbols and used the Deathwatch bare head to make my representation of him.
He will lead my scout squads becoming a Tellion proxie. I need to base and battle damage him still.
My last post I described how I used a very second hand rhino and made a very well done Death Guard Rhino.
I am doing the same thing with an old predator and another rhino.
As you can see these guys are pretty rough.
The first thing I did was sand off any decals,fix any mold lines and then I re primed it black.
I then gave a good once over with boltgun metal that has received a wash of Vermin Brown and a wash of Scaly Green to give the metal a nice dirty tint.
I then applied a Liquid Mask with a sponge giving extra attention to the edges and hatches.
Once dry I sprayed with Tamiya White and base coated the tank any metal being painted Beastal Brown which gives you the dark red rust base. Also paint on the badge and unit markings at this stage. Once done I gave it a wash of Vallejo smoke. .
I live in New York and have been into the hobby for quite some time now.
I have yet to play a single game but have painted close to twenty different armies.
I really enjoy making quailty armies that I end up selling after a year or so to those who will really enjoy them.
When I am not painting you can find me kicking back enjoying suburban life.
