    Looks great!

    I think with the head its more down to the sculpt, unusually for a GW mini he has such a small head which should really be the focal point.

    Also, I've just noticed that the feather on his weapon, the smoke from the energy ball on the blade and his loin cloth are all flowing in different directions...again not you, just weird GW sculpting.

    I'm digging the fire & ice theme of his base.

    He looks awesome!

    Amazing, and a lava base...is inspired in his great moment in Wrath of Magnus?

    Re: Tzen's Thousand Sons

    It is indeed Gonfrask!

    His warlord trait plus the fluff in Wrath of Magnus pretty much decided the base for me!

    I was asked for some pictures on a white background so I thought I would share them here too.

    WOW. That's better than the GW box art!

    I like the stipple effect on the energy bits, makes for a nice sparkling effect. The base is top notch as well!

    Thanks Garanaul!

    I am really glad you like it, hoping to maybe see it in future White Dwarfs, who knows. They must get swamped with pics these days.

    Re: Tzen's Thousand Sons

    As an aside, here is a Terminator I quickly mocked up for how I want to use the new Thousand Sons paints whilst also staying fairly true to the darker blue colour scheme.



    It's not exactly the finished article, but yeah, just thought i'd share!

    Re: Tzen's Thousand Sons

    So, I have started work on a second terminator. I am still getting a feel for the colour pallet I want for these guys. I am using the new paints, but I like the dark blue original scheme, so I am starting off with the dark blue, and then blending up to the new paints. I think it makes the armour look quite ensorcelled! You may disagree obviously!

    Hey bud, was just trying to check out your videos on twitch but dont seem to be showing.
    Cracking model and looks even better on a white background.
    Any chance you can reveal what paints/techniques you used on the skin, red, purple and light purple bits. Did you wet blend?

    Hi Ironduke!

    Sadly Twitch removes videos after a length of time. I do have them all saved but I haven't had time to edit them together!

    I used a lot of wet blending on Magnus, here are the notes I made whilst painting him. I hope it helps. If I get round to editing the videos I will post a link here too.


    Magnus:
    Skin - Khorne red - Screamer pink - Naggaratoh night in shade - Wazdakka red highlight - 50/50kislev/wazdakka - add WHITE to this for final highlight.

    Wings:

    Wetblend from khorne red to Screamer pink to naggaraoth night to Sotek green. Edge highlight with Sotek - temple guard - bahaaroth.

    Purple skin Naggaroth - xereus 50/50 xereus and Kislev - add white to this for final hightlight.

    Armour: Leadbelcher > oil > Ironbreaker > Edge highlight of stormhost.




    Here is a rather dark picture of the assault cannon guy. He's finished apart from the base, I will eventually rebase them to match Magnus. I just wanted to get the army built to play games with!



    I'm not trying to paint these up to an amazing standard or anything, they are the rank and file so there's nothing amazing going on here. My plan is to eventually paint up a unit of these to a pretty high standard, but for now they are gaming pieces. I imagine when I do Ahriman I will spend a lot of time on him too.

    Re: Tzen's Thousand Sons

    Okay, this guy looks decidedly ropey.



    I am a bit burnt out with painting, and it's beginning to show on my minis so a few days off to chill then back to the other three termies. I am not happy with the amount of corners I am cutting.

    Re: Tzen's Thousand Sons

    I prefer the original darker blue scheme as well. Both look great. GW needs to beat the next painter who grabs that same teal/aqua color palette (the one they seem to use on every other unit these days) with rubber hoses.

    Re: Tzen's Thousand Sons

    Thanks chaps, I am really glad you like!

    I also prefer the darker scheme. The good thing about the Thousand Sons campaign book thing is that it had loads of different paint scheme in it. So they haven't invalidated the old paint scheme! I have tried to go for a mix of the two. Still using a bit of the teal but staying true to the dark blue scheme!

    Another Terminator finished!





    I am trying to paint these guys to a standard I am happy to field on the table, so that I can return to them at a later date. Pretty happy with em so far!
