Hiyah, yet again I will take away your satisfaction by posting pics of my models, and for now I will give you my newly painted Rhino for, yes one more unneeded SM player, my Space Marine chapter.
As you may see I've tried some freehand icongraphy painting, I'm not really happy with the "snow" effect, but it was my first timer for tank tracks.
You may also see that there has been som fixin' on the hatches, which I'm no real fan of. I see no point in the typical Rhino Googles, by the drivers windows so I redid them, not perfectly but I'm quite satisfied.
I see the flame, but where is the chalice?!? On a serious note – flames look OK for a first attempt, the white text could be a bit better though. I would really try to base the fire in some type of a brazier or cup though… Snow – looks not too white and a bit too compresses. Should try to invest in some “snow” product if you want to base your army on snow bases - it will be worth it in the end...
Yea, the snow kinda looks like either dried paste or pancake mix, depending on how you look at it. The rest of the rhino is very well done though!

Umm, the chalice ran away with all it's fear....
Nah i just decided to leave out the chalice as I rarely use it on my marines either. The flames is purposely sone the way it is, to resemble the markings on my marines. As for getting some "fake" snow, i already have but I'm looking for the arctic effect. The one where all the snow has blown away, with only the light bluish ice sticking through. Therefor e perfer to use woodpaste as you easily get these sort of effetcs. :yes:
*Here's a shot from the side*
Just a quick note on snow effects-
Snow is a poor choice for basing vehicles as it generally melts when contacting a vehicle that has the engine running, even on stationary vehicles it rarely stays on long especially on the sides where it really has nothing keeping it up.
It's a better idea to do some caked on mud as snow gets the ground pretty wet and turns dirt into a quagmire.

um, yeah, but when it's like really cold, they are from an arctic planet, not even the engine will make it melt, trust me:yes:, When it's all glacier even the mud wont come through, I've made a huge set of scenery as this lost polar base as a battle scene and my marines join up with the engineers (IG) to defeat the enemy...
