Drybrushing of the Deimos-pattern Rhino

Have been working on my Horus Heresy Deimos-pattern Rhino. I put the Rhino model together and then gave it a white undercoat. I also sprayed the underneath of the model with Citadel Zandri Dust, then I  painted the whole model yellow using a Daemonic Yellow spray from Army Painter. I then picked out some details, the exhausts and bolters using Leadbelcher. The stage after that was to wash the model using some Shade paint.

For the next stage I used some Citadel Layer Yriel Yellow. I took a large brush and gave the model, what I would call, a heavy drybrush. I put paint on the brush, and then used some kitchen towel to remove most of the paint, and then using a stippling process added paint to the model.

The plan was that this would take the flat surfaces of the model back to the base colour.

I then gave the model a light drybrush of Citadel Layer Dorn Yellow.

I had thought about doing some edge highlighting, but I realised that I didn’t really have the skill to do this.

I was quite pleased with how the model was looking.
