A Wall Covered In Rhino Skulls

I am finally finished painting all my Rhino/Razorbacks! I am SO glad I will never have to work with a Forge World rhino door ever again. You would think they never size these things before creating molds for them; awesome detail? check, interesting/obscure design? check, fits right onto the model it's meant for? well....


I worked in a different stripe design for each Rhino Hatch. The barber pole stripes look pretty good and they catch the eye well. If you look at all my work I have done you can see a healthy dose of assymetry to my pieces. It's an aesthetic choice. I think that the lack of consistency in design makes an observer peruse the whole piece and find all the differences, thereby they really study and appreciate the work you put in.






Guess what I'm doing next?

  1. This post has been most useful for me. Painting my second squad fifth company Rhino/Razorback now and I needed some inspiration. Your works looks awesome and was very inspiring for sure!

  2. Beautiful piece of work, as always. I'm sure the predator will be even better. Interesting observation about why each piece should be unique. I like that thought.

  3. well, you need that unifying theme. These vehicles may all be STC, but they are THOUSANDS of years old :) they might have gotten a slightly different paint job at some point. I'm going to be putting the starting touches on my predator tonight, sanding and preconstruction
