I finished my Movie Marines project recently with the last two entries.
First off, I needed a rhino to finish off the lot of them. I converted this rhino quite some time ago, but I always had a sort of block when it came to painting it up. Eventually, I realized that it was the static boxiness of the rhino mini- no matter how much you convert and add, it is tough to make it dynamic.
In order to remedy this, I decided to add a base. This mini is mounted on an old CD-ROM that we never care to see again.
Second, I threw together the sergeant mini- in part because I've done lots of this kind of freehand on projects for commissions, but I haven't done it for myself very much. The lion banner was in part because I felt it would go well as a sort of personal heraldry icon on him.
I put the Rhino up on Cmon for anyone who cares to vote.
Wow all I can say is amazing! Thats how a Rhino should be used and dirty as it runs over it's enemys!
Rhino's rock! My Rhino won us a 25,000 point Apoc game!
I thought movie marines surfed on Rhinos .
Looks top notch as ever, though.
Having an army and not owning a rulebook is like owning a car with no steering wheel.Originally Posted by amishcellphone

Conversion painting and weathering are astounding!
Praise be to the Emperor!!
Besides your great paint work, I just have to say that I love the idea of trading out the pintle mounted storm bolters for a marine leaning out the top hatch and firing one. I'm not sure why, I just think it's brilliant. I think I'm going to have to build a model with that gun/shield combo myself (though mine won't look near as great as yours).
Thank you for the inspiration.
The idea I had here was that it needed to feel a little more personal than the normal rhino. After all, this guy up top is a character from an action movie, right?
Of course, the force is allowed to take a while when there are less than a dozen minis altogether.
