    Okay, that picture actually startled me when I unsuspectingly clicked on this plog. So job well done, I guess. If I have nightmares tonight it's all your fault.

    Re: And so it begins... Sureshot05's plog of everything.

    Well, its going to take a little work to restore all the photos in this thread, but its good to be back.

    So to celebrate Warseers return here is a recently painted model or two.

    You'll have to click until everything is fixed, but this is photobucket so you can trust me it's safe!



    The epic shadowsword model was one of the first to get me into miniature gaming in general. Epic is still one of my favourite games when I can find the odd rare opponent.

    It was great to finally paint up its 40k equivalent and strip the paint off the old epic model and make them match. And I must admit, i really like the new 40k shadowsword model as well. If it wasn't completely pointless, I could see me collecting a company of shadowswords for 40k...

    Hope you enjoy this memory lane moment.

    Re: And so it begins... Sureshot05's plog of everything.

    Thank Hokiecow.

    Well, first up is a picture taken whilst Warseer was down.



    It's always nice to get group shots and you can see the Shadowsword is missing. Wouldn't mind adding a few more chimera and russ's, but the force brings me plenty of entertainment on the table.

    However, those who have looked through the thread will remember the early Thousand Son Scarab terminators I converted and general Thousand son theme.

    Well, clearly last Christmas was aimed at me with a full broadside by GW. I actually feel the new Scarab Occult terminators resemble the style I was going for quite well and I like to think there may have been a connection. :P (though probably not, but don't spoil the moment!)

    Anyhow, clearly with all this thousand sons release going on I had to get involved. And where else would I get involved except with this guy:



    Skin and hair are done. These have followed the GW vid pretty closely except for the hands and feet which i wanted to make more purple and daemonic. Next up is the wings which is where I am going to deviate more from the official scheme before i go on to the remaining details on the main model.

    The armour is quite a tough choice for me. Whilst I appreciate the gold and silver of the GW scheme, I feel that doesn't match my T'sons that well, so I think I will be going for silver and midnight blue. A more archaic, dark evil feel to the armour rather than the bright scheme of GW, as befits someone who is never wrong and has 10,000 years of plotting to prove his arrogance and doesn't care for the cost to mortal lives.

    Brilliant. I do prefer the hands and feet how you have done them sureshot.

    Skin looks fantastic. How did you do the feet/hands? Looks like more than just purple washes.

    Thank you. I wanted a more stark contrast to emphasize on the daemonic nature.

    I started with a heavy dry brush of purple over the hands, with it getting thinner towards the wrist. Afterwards, I washed with purple ink, then i did my highlights in a much starker pink (tentacle pink) and then i washed again. I was very slow in doing the transitions in most areas, as I really took care to keep the transition smooth. If you look at the wings, which I am just starting on, you can kinda see the first stage before inking between the purple and pink at the beginning.

    Of course, I couldn't just stop at Magnus so I also picked up a few other things over the last couple of months. Its cost a lot, but it is going to last the year hopefully so totally worth it.

    This is the stuff I got from GW


    But before the TS release, I was given a gift from my wife, which contained these lovely conversion parts, which I have finished building and will be painting at the same time (on the left).



    Once I have this lot done (which is going to take a while) I expect to be buying another box to TSons to add a lot more Soulreaper cannons to my forces. I have two 9 man squads of the old TSon's plus the converted set above who all need Soulreapers. So I am thinking a box of Tsons and some forgeworld Rotor cannons to complete the missing cannons from the other squads. The side effect being that I will end up with about 50 Tsons before counting sorcerors, terminators, vehicles or daemons... So yes, this is definitely becoming an apocalypse force.... Though technically, I could just field a sorceror and 6 squads of 10 Tson's in a 1850 game....

    Re: And so it begins... Sureshot05's plog of everything.

    So I dropped my phone, which is embarrassing as I broke the screen. However, after a bit of work, I have repaired it and now can return to posting pictures of my latest projects.

    So Magnus, a lot of work and the armour is done. Its design to compliment my take on the Thousand sons (And also I'm not a fan of the excessive amount of gold bling on the current batch of GW models).

    Since this was taken i have finished neatening up the cloak insignia and general tidy up. But have struggled to get a good photo of him. Not yet fielded him, but have begun work on the new Thousand sons models to follow him. Also revisiting the older ones to rebase in light of what I did with Magnus's base. Finally, I am planning on coverting up one more batch of Thousand sons using the old CSM model base with Rotor cannons to match the old Thousand son models, but to give them a heavy weapon each.
