Word Bearers Rhino (Sixty Day Miniatures of Magnitude May-June 2020 Challenge)

I’m not fully sure how long I’ve had this Rhino in my possession for; I seem to recall it being a present from my sister maybe a year ago. I also remember the assembly wasn’t as bad as Rhinos normally tend to be! With Ann’s Immaterium issuing the Miniatures of Magnitude Challenge, now was the time to get this tank brought up to speed.

When putting it together, I aimed to keep it in line with everything that I liked about the Chaos vehicles: the spiked top sections, the grumpy gunner, the variety of gruesome trophies, etc. With our foul missionaries in the Word Bearers spreading the truth wherever they go, it made sense to add some parchments and tomes to the body of the Rhino too. Trying to avoid spending money on gubbins, I raided my bitz box and came up with a daemonic book and a couple of Space Marine parchments that could be used (after filing off the Imperial Aquila).

As far as painting goes, I stuck with my normal routine of drybrushing the armour. It took a few goes around the tank to build up a decent deep red that fit in with the rest of the crew, but added to that tattered, ancient look that is shared across the army. Feeling brave, I attempted some weathering with a sponge along the bottom of the chassis as well.

Thanks for reading and catch you all next time.

    A very nice rhino. Would love to drive such a vehicle down to the convenience store to get my daily dose of energy drinks, snacks, and HERESY! 🙂
