Dino Update 2

Happy New Year to all!!! Here's the latest update. :)
Finished painting the metals and the details.


De stressed the edges of the armour using the sponging technique as well as painting in some chips as well.


Inked the armour and the Dino to create a darker more weathered look. :)

Dino Update

Here's the daily update. Didn't get too much done abit lazy. Painted the rough colours across most of the model (decided to focus on the dino 1st).

The Metals were decided and a basecoat of tin bits was applied for all the parts which i would later paint to become steel or gold. I find tin bits to have good coverage for the later metal paints i would be using later.

The underbelly of the beast was painted with a mixture of GW shadow grey + Vallejo US field drab. Then progressively lightened with Vallejo Deck Tan. This was done through layering. When i was done with this part i realized that it looked like a shark!!! Ok la... :P Anyway its gonna be on a snow base like all my other marines so i think it should be quite suited.

The interior of the mouth was painted and the highlighted. The details of the teeth and claws were then done in the usual manner.

The scales were then painted using shadow grey + black + midnight blue. And then lightened with shadow grey and finally lightened with space wol grey.

The eyes were a problem coz i decided for a green glow at 1st and then discovered that i didn't like it. Repainted over with red eyes instead.

Hopefully there will be more progress tomorrow. Thanks for watching. All your comments are much appreciated.

Base Coated

Just returned from my holidays :) And back to work on the Dino Rider. A small update. The model was base coated with GW Chaos black spray and then airbrushed with Tamiya Sea Blue : Field Blue : Medium Blue : Sky Blue.

Now that the base colors are done. The next steps would be hand painting :)

DinoRider WIP2

Just a small update. Finally got the dragon scale cloak done for the rider. The ends of the cloak needs to be slightly tattered later once the green stuff has dried. Decided to trim the top part with fur (although i do not know which dinosaur has fur :P) My cloak making is still lacking as im unable to make the folds natural :(

Took the advice from Lord AK and Lord King Kong to have the head facing downwards slightly (what do you all think?) One hand holding a halbred which will be his frost blade. The other hand will be holding chains which will be later on added as reins for his mount.

Again thanks all for view and for your comments.

DinoRider WIP

Just a small update. Testing the rider on the dinosaur. I decided to put it in terminator armour but modifying it as the rules do not allow terminator armour to be mounted. But since the lord's gonna have Runic Armour and Belt of Russ then i guess a terminator armoured model would be the best choice :)


**Plus it would take one hell of a marine to subdue this beast!!!***

New Marine army

Thanks to someone who i will not mention here (u know who u r u DEVIL!!!) I was inspired to start a new 40k army based on the Spacewolf codex. But instead of wolves... DINOSAURS reign!!! So here's the conversion of my lord's mount which as u can see is based on the Juggernaut. I have not done the rider yet. Will keep updating as time passes :P
