Will the Rhino be modified at all to give it a more classic appearance, or will it just be stock?
I don't think it would be too hard to add the front doors, round side hatches, and exposed exhausts... but it does mean more work, obviously!

Other old models to maybe consider tracking down and adding to the project:

  • The metal-plastic 2E Chaos Predator tank
  • Typhus (Released after 2E, yes, but not by much and still a stone-cold Jes classic!)
  • Doom Rider (Very silly... Extremely silly in fact! But also very much in the 2E style of model).
  • Chaos bikes (You can still buy these new... for now!

They're pretty much stock with some Chaos modification and one has the Forgeworld doors (I also have a Forgeworld Predator for the Black Legion which mimics the old Rogue Trader style - it's badly warped though but will still do the job).
I do have a Predator (and two original Rhinos) in the wings along with Typhus but they're for my Rogue Trader/2nd Ed Death Guard Force ;)

 A great little project you have going here.
 Any chance of a picture of all of the painted figures together?

Here are the modern Rhino's, what can you say except they get the job done :D
Next up we're back to 2nd Ed and a rather important character.

More images and waffle from me on my blog:

The time finally came to paint up the big man himself, really enjoyed painting him as this is my original miniature from 2nd Edition.

More words and pictures over on my blog (including an image of his original paint job).

Thanks!

Next up is some additional firepower in the form of a Deimos Predator Executioner.  I've added some of the etched brass markings along with some spares from the Chaos vehicle sprue:

Huh.  I take it the vulture-head gun barrels came off the Chaos vehicle sprue?  I had a bunch of them in my bits box from a trade and never knew where they were from.  Wound up using them for the prows on a bunch of Chaos cruisers back when Battlefleet Gothic first came out.

That's correct, along with all sorts of handy bits and pieces.

Very nice, that 'flat' black you have achieved is very effecctive.

Yup, quite clearly Black Legion. :) Two things stand out to me: Seeing Abbadon painted takes me back. And I really like how you've dealt with the liquids in Fabius Bile's (in the German version the called him Fabius Gallus. Which kinda makes sense, because Bile = Galle in German, but it also makes him either a rooster or a Gaul. :D ) round container things there. You didn't go for "red liquid, blue-ish body of glass" on his injector, which always looks a bit weird at second glance. The two-reds-variant I really like. I also like the cloudy look in the vials on his back.

Lovely looking Predator Giger! I'm glad you managed to find a "retro-style" one to fit with your classic models. :)

I must say that I have really enjoyed seeing all your BL models here, and I often find myself looking through your pictures and thinking about my own (unpainted) BL collection... But picking that up again would then distract me from all my other current distrac-er, projects. ;)
