View Full Version : Super-heavy Rynnsguard

30-11-2010, 21:45
Hi all, I've reached a point where I need to get to painting a lot of my stuff and that includes my super-heavies. I have a baneblade/hellhammer and a shadowsword that are in dire need of paintjobs. Right now I'm concentrating on the shadwsword and the fulff I'm goign with is its one that was placed in the hands of the Rynn's world PDF after ork Snagrod's invasion. I know there is a rynnsguard forum and I've found the paint scheme they use. Currently there are no paint scheme's for a rynn's super-heavy; most of what that forum came up with is the crimson fists layout (dark blue, with a red highlight on a bumper somewhere).

Long story short, are there any known Rynn's world paint schemes for super-heavies, or is the dark blue, red bumper scheme pretty much it? Am open to suggestions or links if you've got any...

I've started my Shadowsword but I do a different Rynnsguard scheme, but personally I just do the same as the rest of my vehicles

In most instances Superheavy Tanks are not painted differently than regular vehicles of an Imperial force.

For example; the Valhallan 1st Heavy Tank Company (Shadowsword (http://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/warhammer40k/images/8/83/Shadowsword_Valhallen_1st_Heavy_Tank_Company.png/revision/latest?cb=20120130015727)) is attached to the Valhallan 28th Armoured Regiment (Conqueror (http://image.bolterandchainsword.com/uploads/gallery/album_10485/gallery_39941_10485_96470.jpg)).

However vehicles, units, or entire formations could have a different scheme if they are fighting in different terrain conditions (for purposes of camouflage), or are displaying alternate colours out of rank (like Commissar Tanks), remembrance and respect (like the Deathwing), or honour (Knights).

The sky's the limit, but try to stick with colours and themes your army is already using. If it's CrimFist colours then I'd say yes dark blue with red accent/trim would be the way to go, alternatively a camo pattern based on those colours. Personally I'd use variations of either "Fire Wastes" or "Mars Pattern XXI" examples from here (http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Imperial_Guard_Camouflage_Schemes).
