Predators and Rhinos – oh my!

After finishing my scorpion defiler I made a quick move onto the next part of my Thousand Sons list. Time for some treads!

Thousand Sons Predators and Rhino

Old Rogue Trader / 2nd edition style

These have been sitting around for quite a while from trades and people wanting rid of them, I know I don’t understand either. The Rhino in particular looked tiny and I didn’t fancy try to replicate my orginal one. So instead it got a beefed up front end with bonus turbine ram.

Twin lascannon and heavy bolters

Of course now I am looking at them they seem a little dark, might go back and add some yellow transfers. I laid down the base coat with an airbrush and following a tip from Thor I went and carefully sponged on some wear and tear. This quickly gave them a more worn look like such ancient machines should have. I have always liked the old school Predator, so it is nice to have two.

The only real spots of colour on these are for the view port lenses. Simple dark red, lighter red towards the centre and a dot of white. Not that I image either Predator has a crew anymore.

Still some work to do on them yet, the transfers and lights for example. I realise now I did a bunch of work on the dozer blades to make them look more worn. But I seem to not have taken those pictures. Sure they will show up next time.

So that is were I am so far. I will get this list built yet!
