Back with a new project in hands,

:spin

I'm painting a Space Marine's army for a friend of mine.
He is really fond of the Carcharodon's (Space Sharks) Chapter which can be really challenging when painting because grey...well it's grey.
I've started with this rhino.

To add a little punch of personality I've decided to make a blood splatter effect as if the rhino had hit some poor fellow in his way to battle. I also added a subtil tribal tattoo decoration in the front.

This scheme will basicaly determine the look of the rest of the army.

The Carcharodons will be playing with the Black Templar's Army List with a few adaptation. For now, just some switched names:

Crusaders renamed to Battle-Brothers.
Emperor's Champion renamed to Tyberos.
Sword Brethren renamed to Razortooth Veterans (this unit was the idea of some fellow from WH40k, really liked the name).

Let's see how this will work...

Awesome job! The splatter looks really realistic!

I don't like the splatter, by style. Technically it is done well, just not fond of it. The grey looks good. Perhaps colourful chapter insignia to provide some contrast to the greyish rhino?

I do understand what you're saying Largo_W. As a matter of fact, blood splattering is not my thing also. I'm always afraid to exaggerate (which is pretty easy) resulting in that "childish-gore" looking miniature.

On the other way it was kind of a Carcharodon fluff requisite and therefore I embraced the challenge.. let's see how it will work as soon as the army gains some consistency.

Rastamann, the small details have been working well. It's really what's saving these little fellows from a world of boring greyness.

Jimmyzimms, I will closeup the tribal thing as soon as I take some photos of what I've been preparing.. my cam is MIA so I must ask a friend to do so.

Thank you all!

I love that comic (NinjaBread?), but don't remember this particular one. Is he still going?

Also, amazing real life conversion!
