Looted Ork Rhino Turrets

I started painting the base coat on the Battlewagon turrets that I intend to use with the Looted Rhino.

Though the paint, Snakebite Leather, has left a streaky finish, this is the basecoat and the subsequent washes and drybrushes should hide that.

Masking the turret

I have been thinking about using the turrets from the Ork Battlewagon on my Ork Looted Rhino.

I decided that I would use two undercoats, a black undercoat for some of the model and a white undercoat for the main bodywork. In order to achieve this I masked off the areas of the model that would be brown.

I decided that as I was using this on the Looted Rhino that I could get away with using an Imperial turret hatch and so I could use one of the Ork turret hatches (or mini turret) on another Ork vehicle.

Though the photograph shows the roof of the turret on the model, that is just to show how it will look and wasn’t stuck on at this time.

Ork Looted Rhino Gunner

I am quite pleased with my Looted Ork Rhino  but still have a fair bit to do.

One of the things it does need is some weaponry, this was an attempt to add an Ork Gunner with Big Shoota.

Alas it doesn’t work for me. It looks like the Ork’s firing his Shoota at aircraft rather than at enemy Imperial Guard. I will be revisiting the Gunner at a later date.
