Today's post is about my Thousand Sons Praetor. He is based off the Ahriman model. I have only really changed three things:
- The casting hand swapped for a plasma pistol
- The removal of the horns
- The head swap
Today's post is about my Warlord Titan. I've finally decided, after much procrastination it must be said, that I will paint this as a member of Legio Atarus. The Firebrands 🔥. I've started on the armour plates, and this is where I'm up too.
Today's post is about my completed Alpha Legion Moritat. I really love this model, the absolute utility and functionality of the look. He really does look like a one man Army. He's equipped with two volkite's, as with the number of dice he can roll, I'd rather he didn't die from gets hot rolls.
On to the pictures!
What do you think? Let me know in the comments section below.
Today's post is about my two Tactical Squad Sergeants which will lead two 20 marine Tactical Squads. They are built from the Plastic MKIV set, with a Thousand Sons head and a Blade Occult sword. The hands were cut at the wrist, I've saved the arms for adding hand flamers or plasma pistols. Hand flamers would probably be lethal in Zone Mortalis games.
Today's post is about the new kids on the block, primaris Marines.
So I got a set of Dark Imperium and decided to paint up the Primaris Space Marines as my exsisting Chapter of Red Scorpions. The fluff behind this Chapter is some of the strongest around, certainly in my opinion better than the fluff generated by the Black Library, or main studio teams these days.
Here's pictures of the first marine.
While I like the models, I don't think I will be replacing my marines with these guys. I'm not a fan of the grav tank, or the Dreadnought. I do like the infantry and characters though.
Today's post is about my latest army. As soon as I saw Ahriman I knew I wanted a Thousand Sons Army. This has just been reinforced by Amon, the Sekhmet Terminators, and of course Magnus. With this in mind I have painted the first Marine. It is always wise to trial your paint scheme on a model prior to committing to an army.
Here's the pictures:
The painting stages are:
- Under coat Citadel Chaos Black
- Air brush Vallejo Model Air Gold
- Spray in light coats Tamiya Clear Red, to build the candy apple colour
- Paint the trims GW Retributor Gold
- Paint the white parts GW Celestria Grey
- Paint the metal GW Iron Breaker
- Paint the eyes GW Warpstone Glow
- Apply Transfers now.
- Apply gloss varnish other the transfers to stop the ink in the next step staining them.
TIP: Always varnish the whole panel, it blends in more on the finished model.
- Wash with a 50:50 mix of Army Painter Strong Tone water based ink and Future Klear
Today's post is about the relatively new Sekhmet Terminator Cabal set. I love these models and think they really capture the essence of the Thousand Sons Legion before their fall.
The set comes in one of the white boxes.
The set comes with a lovely printed instruction sheet. Nice colour reference too.
There's a parts list, but really, on three resin parts per marine, it's not a massive challenge. There is an error on the instructions. For some reason it tells you to only add a single shoulder pad per arm. This is clearly wrong looking at the pictures on either the front or rear of instruction sheets.
The resin parts are nicely stored in a plastic Forgeworld bag.
The resin parts laid out. They look good, but have an annoying shim on the torso between the gates. It is easy to clean if careful, but easy to mess up.
The set also includes the B@C plastic cataphractii frames.
And five 40mm bases. The models when together fairly easily once cleaned up. I can't wait to paint these up. Below are some pictures of the models assembled.
Above is my favorite of the poses. What do you think of these models? Will you be getting some?
Today's post is about Amon of the Thousand Sons from ForgeWorld. I purchased this at Warhammerfest yesterday. It's a nice looking model who will fit well in my Heresy Thousand Sons force.
Generally, I prefer generic characters for battles, as special characters should be reserve for only the most apocalyptic of battles, but I have the current Thousand Sons Triumvirate (Magnus, Ahriman, and Amon), mainly while I wait for generic Thousand themed characters.
On to the pictures.
Amon, like the rest of the character series comes in a black box.
The instruction sheet is short, but the parts count isn't high so this isn't a problem.
Inside the outer box is a plastic clam shell pack. This is a well packed model.
The model is well posed, I like the face. There is a another pic of the left, smaller shoulder below. It is a custome shoulder and not, a botched model to allow the pose.
Nice running pose on the legs.
Hand outstretched, I assume crushing a wolves spine...
The weapon is quite warped however a little bit of heat with a hair dryer will sort this in a minute. I'll build first though.
This is the small gaming base. There are broken armour from his fellows littering the floor.
The two pictures above make the display base. The detail is phenomenal.
The only problem with the model was a miscast in the cape. Should be fairly easy to fill so not a massive issue. Let me know if you liked the post, and I will do more.
