The Thousand Sons need a ride! Nothing beats the good old rhino. Managed to work on this Thousand Sons Rhino a while back. Its the same usual Thousand Sons colour scheme. The Rhino doors and front panel are from Forge World. The clean colour gradient for the Thousand Sons Rhino felt so smooth which I managed to weather it subtly with weathering powder around the tracks and base area, along with some little subtle paint chip metal effect here and there. Definitely a good ride, I am sure the Thousand Sons marines will enjoy! Ha ha!
40k Thousand Sons
How can Thousand Sons Ahriman be alone without his Exalted Sorcerers. So much psychic aura in the air when painting all these Exalted Sorcerers! Client had the Exalted Sorcerers’ base already based on a resin base. As most Games Workshop Space Marines and Chaos now are all mostly in 32mm base, I guess l am used to looking at them at 32mm, on a 25mm they do look small. But still, their psychic aura are big and strong! Arrghhh…. Need to Deny The Witch!
40K Thousands Sons Ahriman! Can feel the psychic aura when giving him life with paint… haha. Ahriman was definitely fun to paint. The amount of details on him were amazing. Love the the design of his power armour though, nice claw design I would say. Ahriman is the Chaos Sorcerer, definitely would love to have a game with him. 40k Thousands Sons are psyker, wonder how would my Grey Knights fare when face to face. Now, to feel some psychic power!
More marines! After my board game projects, I am back to more marines, Thousand Sons Rubric Marines. Thousand Sons marines typically has more details to work on, especially the strip design on the helmet and chest. But still, painting them is always exciting. Had 2 squads of 10 of them, once completed that glorious feel of the gold and Thousand Sons blue colour feels good!
Since my last update with the Thousand Sons, the next project that I moved on was The Thousands Sons Tzaangors. Painted quite a few squad of Tzaangors all based on different tones of the Thousand Sons blue. So many Tzaangors painted, that I kept calling them “Birdman”!
When Games Workshop released the new Thousand Sons, though I am not into collecting them, I can only wish that I had those new miniatures to paint with. And wow, my wish came true, one of my clients wanted to start the new Thousand Sons army. Definitely was an excitement moment for me to get my brushes and paint ready. The first project to start was the Scarab Occult Terminators. The terminators were awesome and fun to assemble. The only setback was the poses for the terminators, a bit far too stiff looking, if only they are in a more dynamic pose. Other than that, the details were amazing. Client wanted a different colour scheme from the Game workshop ones for his Terminators squad. Started off with the colour scheme, Baldes of Magnus, from the codex. Its the reversed style from the default Game workshop painted ones. The main colour was painted with gold and the outline and trim were in Citadel Thousand Sons Blue, followed by highlight of Citadel Ahriman Blue. Well, though the Terminators pose were a bit
