Warhammer: Whirlwind Rhino by mikkow Warhammer: Whirlwind Rhino by mikkow
A commission for Games Workshop.

It's a Whirlwind Rhino variant, launching it's rocket load from some urban ruins. Kapow! I didn't intend for it to be quarter front view again. I think I used up my share of those already.

Ah, but how much cooler is your task than mine? Maybe it outweighs.

Now if we compare Civ vs Mil life, I have to agree that my position is better. :evil:

AS per uasul, Love it. The dust and grit evokes a very trappedf feel of cityfighting one thought of something that if you had more artistic freedom you may wsh to explore is maybe having some marines dashing in front of it fire thier bolters and the Emporors foes.Just a thought.

:iconmikkow:
mikkow Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2006
I do have that amount of artistic freedom. Though I don't always have the time :P This is a support vehicle however, so it probably wouldn't be in such a front line position.

I don't think they like me putting in the 'enemy' much however, as the enemy varies in the game depending on who you use the vehicle against. Hmm

Just remeber the foes of the emporer are everywhere. My thought is that you would jsut see them dashing and the bolter slugs flying at what? Thats for another panel

I agree, the missile looks a bit off. Perspective sligtly skewed, maybe? But the lighting is great. I can almost taste the dust.

:iconmikkow:
mikkow Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2006
Well, it's a long and fat missile. :) I think I have reasonably good perspective eyes and I can't see anything, unless one follows that edge of the launcher box slightly below and to the right of the missile. I think it's the box that is slightly off if anything. But it's not something I can really notice without a close exam. ;)

LOL I told you that haha, but you had more pressing issues at the time so you probably didn't notice (for good reason)

About 3 months now, doing I.T. stuff (fixing computers and other BS) and doing the website stuff on the side. That main guy I used to work for changed what he was doing, and I didn't have enough of my own contracts to keep doing websites full time. I really miss working at home though :(

"Rounds complete" is the confirmation that your FSU gives you when they've finished firing the ordnance you've asked for :)
"FSU" - Fire Support Unit (Artillery Mortars etc)
