Hey you guys!
Needing a way to collectively show how I'm progressing with my painting and this was quite obviously the best choice by far instead of putting new posts up for every single thing I make.
There will be some work in progresses along the way too, only so I don't clutter up the board, and to make things easier for me to keep track of where all my pictures are because there will be a lot as I'm sure you are aware of how I work...
This is my sexy predator (at least I think so) and my armies color scheme has been adapted to this one, instead of a random array of colors, using dawn of war and putting in my colors there this is basically what came out, I added bits here and there because I felt there wasn't enough yellow with how DOW sold me...
I put the chassis together a lot better than anything else I've made, removing all mold lines I could find, and making sure everything lined up as perfect as it could before glueing, the only issue I've found is one of the lascannons join has a bit of a gap in it, but I'm thinking about replacing it with those fancy dragon heads that come with the sprue anyway, so not much to worry about.
Also trying to paint a little better than I have in the past, trying to keep my lines nice and smooth and generally not over-layer it. the yellow needs layers, I know you can see the black through it, but I like the way it looks, or else I wouldn't have sprayed the entire thing with black...
The backdoor has a section thats not filled in, I'll paint it yellow soon to match the DOW one, and there is details on the cannons and then the spikes.

The predator here has been sitting very dormant for quite some time, waiting time and time again for a splash of paint, and although the basics were done weeks ago, I decided this morning was the time to get some real painting done.
I've gone over the turret with silver as you can see, I wanted two separate shades, but as it turns out my silver is so watery that it wouldn't coat the barrel after so many tries so I went straight to the boltgun metal for that, and problem solves, cleaned up a bit of the excess around the front and side, and also details on the roof (which you can't see, sorry) but altogether I think it's coming along well with the rest of the stuff that I need to be painted, among which is my possessed soldier for the horror competition, and the rest of the army needs their armor highlighted.
The back door was custom made by the way, the one from DOW was actually like the original door but I ruined it with my hobby knife so yeah here we are...
I'm just so happy that this one isn't a complete mess like my other rhino, and the colors are nice and flat enough not to enrage everyone into hating me
More updates when I paint the highlights of the tank tonight (hopefully).
As always, looking forward to seeing more of your work, Duane.
Very good, buddy.
Have you experimented at all with the foundation paint series? The yellow in particular would really help when you're applying paint over black. It will prevent the black from showing through.
Spambot kill tally. . .337
I suggested that, Rabbit, and Duane said he liked the black poking through the yellow and didn't want to change it. To each his own, I suppose. I very much agree with Rabbit, and would love to see you change your mind on this one, bud.
Well I got paid today so I'll have to see if it fits into my budget, I need a lot of supplies today, even the basics like glue and spray paint.
If those paints cost the same as citadel ones then I'll give it one shot for you guys
Sweet, I believe they're the same price. The yellow I would suggest is called "Iyanden Darksun".
I know that the rest of my army still has a lot of work to go but the predator is just too sexy to resist working on!
Here are some more painting, after trying highlighting on the tank for the first time, it came out badly at first but practice makes perfect!
It all speaks for itself I think, so I'd be wasting words writing about it, all I have to say is that the last step is adding spikes to the front and top and then its done
Isn't yellow fun to paint?
I don't know what's scarier, that hobby desk or the butt sticking out to the right of the picture.
