Rhino/Razorback Detailing

So I've been painting up quite a few Space Marines for a local escalation league. I pre-shaded as normal but I've taken quite an interest in battle damage. I never get to do any damage effects on my Eldar as my vision of them looks perfectly flawless... as if they just came out of a factory. plus its just doesn't fit them in my opinion. so when I pick up marines I try my best to make them look like they've been through a battle or two.

So anyways tell me what you think of the battle damage effects, they look better than the effect I used to do IMO.  However it almost looks like its made of cracked Grey marble

Also there is this nifty little program called Vassal that I'm sure you guys have heard of.  It allows you to play 40K or other war games on your computer with friends that are far away/random people.  I sounds like a great Idea on paper but in reality it ends up taking twice as long to play games, most people feel the need to run uber-competitive lists on there i.e.  razor spam, long fang spam ect. (myself included) most of the time I run my Saim-Hann jetbikes. however I scored probobly the most awesome roll a week ago. I swear on my life I cant roll over 3 dice on this program without getting at least one one.  You want proof, mmk here you go!

Yeah that's my roll... I have been play 40K for almost 6 years and the worst roll i have ever gotten IRL is only wound 3 terminators with a plasma cannon that direct hit 7 of them... then he made two five up invuls!  anyways whoever made Vassal did a crazy good job. I'm sure that thing took forever to make. I rarely play but you can comment if you wanna play a game.



  1. This looks to be the start of a great blog. Keep up the great posts!

  2. That green screen idea is very cool, blogs looking good also.

  3. The weathering looks great. Have you given sponge weathering a try? It has a more realistic appearance. Any chance for a tutorial on how you went about doing the grey?
