WH40K models

These were bought just for fun and I finished them using different techniques.

Chaos Marine Rhino APC was done without colour modulation. The base coat was gloss black (!) and now it is only seen on the figure. The overall appearance of the vehicle was achieved by oil filters and enamel weathering. It also has a lot of small picky details like torn heads, skulls, etc. :) Small elements were painted with Vallejo.

Predator tank was done with preshading and following colour modulation. Weathering was done with pigments, citadel washes and citadel grass.

Rhino was done during summer 2011 while Predator was finished in August 2010 and I got a gold medal at Norwegian IPMS 2011 show (Skala 2011)!

What do you think of WH40K models?

Fieseler Fi 103 Reichenberg IV

Here is my current WIP. German piloted kamikadze rocket:)

I took this kit at Azimut store for 10 euro (a bargain!) and built it in 2 hours with the help of Vallejo putty.

I decided to depict a rocket captured by Brits and shown at box art.

Base color is Tamiya OD

Next was masking, mixing the light blue and making crazy camo pattern :)

The next day I did a wash, transfered decals, painted the nose of the rocket and glued the cockpit.
The trailer got extra treatment - after OD it was sprayed with hairspray, then Sand Yellow and after everything was dry - I removed yellow with water and an old brush. To pronounce the chipping even more I added red-brown-black paint chips and finally added some pigments on the tires.

Fun model!
