    Yes! Now you are doing both of my most favorite legions.

    The start on Magnus looks promising.

    Thanks gork!

    Gotta love dem Thousand Sons!

    I did some more on his claw/foot thing. The feathers still need to have more definition in the areas they should be shaded, but I am going to wait to do that when I see how they off st against the armour.

    Ta Egg!

    Okay, so I have brought the red up to a pretty bright red. I am trying to achieve a stark contrast between the torso and the legs. The end of each limb I want to be purple, with hints of flesh. But I am keen to emphasise the Red part of his name. This current red will be toned down, I just wanted to start with the highlights and work down a little.

    Re: Tzen's Thousand Sons

    I trust your painting judgment 100%, and get the idea of working down from highlights, but for the record I prefer the more subdued red.

    Whatever. I'm sure it will look awesome in the end.

    And here is a pic of the result.



    It's a massive pain streaming and painting!

    Lovely clean painting and the work on Magnus is very inspiring. He'll be a fine centrepiece for your army.

    Ta chaps!

    Working on the legs now, just getting the shading right. Weirdly I don't feel like I don't do much with the legs as they are generally covered up with armour. I imagine I will return to them.

    Re: Tzen's Thousand Sons

    Here is two more pics. The full body pic is just there to get the whole idea of the mini so far. The chest isn't finished by a long shot, but the armour covers most of it up so it's largely irrelevant.





    Work continues whenever I can snatch an hour or two here and there!

    Gorgeous, the red/purple/pink transitions are superb. A great model being given a paint job it deserves.

    Re: Tzen's Thousand Sons

    Thanks peeps!

    Really glad you are liking him so far, I am trying to go for a darker palette as the studio paint job is a lil pink for my tastes (nothing wrong with that, just not my preference!)

    Hoping to do a smidge more on him over the weekend!
