Now that the LoER contest entry is done (and posted here: https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/778635.page#10523538)... on to the next thing.

Three Sisters Rhinos: I just washed all of these components in one sitting / three episodes of The Expanse, the green with Biel-tan and the silver with Nuln (after the photo was taken). I might do a little drybrushing, or maybe just assemble them and get on with it.

Hey dude, can you advise what you placed the robg boards in with the simple green?
Like an old bath or big plastic container or something?
Im looking to strip a board I have but am having trouble finding a container big enough to fit the 2x2foot.

MacPhail,

Well I voted for your terrain piece. Well done and on them and using some materials that would not be accepted for recycling.

For the Sister's Rhinos, I see you have one kit and two without the Sister's parts. Do you have a plan for the other two? I have started one as well, using just the basic Rhino kit, but I took the fleur de lise hatch cover (left over from an Exorcist build that does not use it) and used it on the Razorback hatch to do the top hatch. Now I am using some old Bretonnian fleur de lise transfers for the side doors.

Good luck,

CB

I didn't immerse them... I put down a plastic drop cloth, lined up the boards, covered them in a layer of paper towels, and saturated them with full strength Simple Green from a spray bottle. I refreshed it every couple hours and let it soak all day. It stunk up my garage, but it loosened the old flock and glue and some of the paint. I used a stiff nylon brush to get as much as I could, which wasn't nearly all of it. Then I threw them in a trash bag, hauled them upstairs, and used the bathtub for a hot soapy wash. Despite all the paint left behind, I got good adhesion from the spray primer I used and it's been good so far.

Thanks buddy! I do have a weird mishmash of Immolator parts, including another top hatch and two turrets, but only one top plate for some reason. I've used the top hatch on the Razorback plate as you said... its nice to distinguish "Rhinos" for the sake of their contents. I don't really have a plan, just building for versatility at this point. For side doors and other trimmings, I have some etched brass fleur de lis and two sets of miscast Forge World doors... the doors are warped and unusable, but I may be able to cut free and sand down the iconography.

Progress update on the Rhinos:



And I realized I never added pics of the new terrain piece on the game table:





Thanks to all those who voted... I didn't walk away with a LoER badge, but the popular vote was a nice nod, and I'll definitely go another round!

That is a nice terrain piece, Really like the rusty tanks.

Though my guards may sleep and my ships may lay at anchor, our foes know full well that big guns never tire.

Thanks! I'm going to go another round in the LoER contest and I'll probably try to match the look, so I'm glad the effect is recognizable as rust. Maybe going to have another go at salt chipping while I'm at it...

So I used the Razorback top hatch and placed the top Sister hatch left over from the Exorcist and used some transfers on the side doors,
Spoiler:

Saved on using Sister parts, you could do similar with your brass fleur de lis for the side doors.

Cheers,

Yeah, I've got that combo, you can see it this pic. I've used it often to designate the "command Rhino" or similar or just to keep embarked troops separate. Here's all the various bits I've got going right now... two full sets of Immolator doors and hatches, but only one top plate for some reason, two 3D printed top plates of a slightly different design (small turret openings, not the big ones), some 3D flame cannon turrets, a bunch of storm bolters and hunter-killers, closed hatches, etc. Not pictured: two sets of miscast Forge World doors for recovery. I might take a shot at converting a Sister standing tall in the turret. Also, finally painting headlights and various other trim details. Home stretch!
