Well this is very different!
But it is a Games Workshop Rhino! Well that is how it started. And you can still see it underneath 1/2 a packet of miliput! This is not for me, but for my nephew, who has now given up on ORKS and is doing Chaos Marines instead. I know youngsters what can you do. So I started with a very old beaten up plastic Rhino that I got at a boot fair and set about making a possessed version. The down side is that it is pretty delicate and I expect it to break on it's first outing to a GW shop! Look we all just know it will, so no point worrying or crying or complaining it is just what kids are like. And I had all the fun of making it!
I actually started with the rolling stones tongue then built up the teeth, then cheeks and eyes and boy did I have some fun (erhm frustration)! The two arms are from old Tyranids and the Tail is from a stegadon as are the two fangs at the front. Every other change is miliput!
A simple paint job and a dirty up and we are done! My personal favourite part is the green putrid wart on the tongue. But I am nasty like that!
I would be tempted to make something else for him like this BUT I would rather encourage him to make his own and not rely on GW! To me that is one of the hobby joys and especially when you are doing something like Chaos to make it your own!
All the best Cheers Clint
