    Lovely paint job so far. I'm a bit dubious about the brighter red bits but I'm sure you will prove to be right when done. Love the purple to blue foot feather transition - cracking stuff!

    Re: Tzen's Thousand Sons

    Thanks chaps!

    Been working on Magnus again!

    The arms are done and so is the back of the model. The chest and front of the legs aren't getting much more done to them as they will be covered in his armour.

    I need to finish the claws and the eye in his palm, but I think it's likely to be the head next.





    Pics are a little lowsy, my awful camera prefers it when I take pics during the day!

    Ta Vazalar!

    I've started working on the metallics.



    I've kinda messed the greaves up a little because I've been sat here playing with different shades of silver and gold all morning. As such the paint got a little too thick

    Ah well, on wards and upwards. :/

    I need to paint his nipple horns but I am currently just working on all the metallic parts of the model. All bone stuff will be done at the same time.

    Lovely work on the armour.

    I'm still far from convinced on the nipple horns...they kinda look better painted black so you hardly notice them

    I am with Egg, I do not like the nipple horns as well. But your painting is great as always.

    Re: Tzen's Thousand Sons

    Thanks peeps! I am glad you like him because it gives me the enthusiasm to keep going!

    And nipple horns are SOOOOO IN right now.

    Here is so far!



    None of these armour plates are stuck on. I need repaint the greaves as they don't match the rest of the metallics. However I am gradually coming round to liking the current silver. I need to tidy up some of the areas on the thigh plates, but I am slowly chugging away at him!

    Re: Tzen's Thousand Sons

    This isn't the best picture, but I have just finished the loin cloth, and barring a few touch ups, I wanted to see how it fit with the rest of him.



    I think that's it for a while now. I am moving house at the end of the week, and will be without internet for a while! I may get a few hours here and there after work, hoping to get him done before the New Year either way!

    Nice paint job in the cloth, the white is really hard and you have lined the details perfectly. Amazing

    Gorgeous work on Magnus, absolutely great take on the colour scheme. When i pluck up the courage to start painting him I'll be following your feather technique I suspect. Wonderful stuff.

    Mate he is looking fantastic, those feathers are a thing of beauty.

    Personally I'm not a huge fan of the design concept behind Magnus (in general rather than this specific sculpt) even though TSons are my favourite traitor legion, but you're making him look great.
    Maybe it's just the 'redness' for me, feels like it belongs to Khorne. I agree that the darker, almost burgundy red looks perfect though!

    Re: Tzen's Thousand Sons

    Thanks guys! All the criticism (both positive and negative) is really encouraging. It's helping me keep the the enthusiasm levels going and makes me wish I could spend all day every day on this guy till he's done!

    In regards to the redness of his skin, I really do think the 'eavy metal paint job is just too pink. He was called the Crimson King. Not the Pink Prince. I am trying to get this colour down for my version:



    Feel free to disagree with me though!

    Tonight I've been able to work on the final bits of the main body of Magnus, his claws and the eye in his palm.

    Now, I am a big fan of "demon eye". Every film or tv series has this, and I think it looks super cool and evil.



    Now normally 40k demon's dont have eyes big enough to get this effect across because the grey and white don't contrast well enough at such a small scale. However, Magnus's palm eye is pretty big. So what do you guys think?
