Ooh neat I like that more than the standard Rhino. Looks slightly more archaic, like an early WW1 tank design developed with 40k 'tech'.

So you can't afford the FW ones, but you're willing to buy two £22.50 kits to combine, totalling £8 more than the FW ones.

Haha, yeah. I didn't think about that. Hopefully 'lll be able to find the parts on eBay, but if not, it may be better to go FW.

Well, I managed to find a couple Chimearas for 7£ a piece, but the shipping (another 10£) and the customs, that should be 20%, but knowing the swiss authorities and their refusal to believe someone would buy 100+£ of plastic models, thus requiring them to open the package and sift through my stuff, means the customs goes up to 50%. So that could be 20£.

But I don't want to think about that now. Here are some Sons!



Don't worry, those white areas will get a coat of White Scar (the beige is just an undercoat to help with shading) and the gold will end up paler. Next up: Tolbek! I will defeat you, Commander Cain! (It's a friendly painting competition... -InnerEmber).

Yes it is, it's actually really easy to do. You just carefully cut off the bolsters barrel, remove the remaining pointy bits and attach some sort of plastic tube, like styrene or even wood, if you wanted to.


This is my current task:


I might not be as neat to a finished mini as you, commander Cain, but I have a few hours set aside for this guy now.

Tolbek's done and awaiting his base, and I managed to get the gold trim done on all the seekers. I'll hopefully finish painting the white bits and move on to the details this evening.

Looking good! You need to get yourself a photo area set up though so we can get some good close ups

I just use bits of the prospero board game if you have that (as any self respecting tsons player should )

Im starting to get my colour scheme settled, the red is really coming out well and the off-white makes the eventually white much stronger.

I'm with you on the off-white really compliments the scheme. Glad you're getting into the comfort zone with this scheme too. Feels really nice to be able to confidently crank out work you're happy with

If you fancy taking things a step up at any point then some weathering would look really nice (I've just started doing it myself and it's a little nervy the first time but looks great!).

Just a little (very) drybrush of silver on the sharp edges of the armour where the paint's worn away.

Also, where did you get those heads on the right from? They look really damn cool

Yeah, I've been debating weathering them, but I tend to either go crazy, like my Raven Guard, or not do enough. I might try the silver edge techique, though. It sounds interesting.


And those heads are from FW, part of the Thousand Sons MK IV heads set.

Looking good! Tolbek turned out really nicely

Re. weathering, I use a small bit of sponge dipped in grey as it keeps the chips inconsistent, plus it's fun!

   
Made in gb

Yeah sponge-weathering is neat too

Thanks for the tip on the heads. I'm looking for the right head to do a sort of Slaaneshi noise-marine. There's a really nice piece of artwork that's got almost a howler head that looks so damn cool, but I can't find anything like it in the model range...

I'm almost finished with the first 2 seekers:



All they need is a final wash on their ammo pouches, an extra highlight for their eyes and transfers, and then they'll be done!

I also tried two different weathering techniques. Firstly, their weapons have painted-on scratch marks, and I also drybrushed and sponged Sylvaneth Bark (their base's highlight) onto the legs.

After I finish these guys, I'll move on to the first Tac squad, and maybe finish off the last terminator.

Looking great dude those little bits of weathering are excellent. The Sylvaneth Bark makes it look ever so slightly dusty, and the little chips of silver work nicely. Little touches like the dusty legs seem to me to connect the model to its basing just a little, making it seem like he's been trudging through the battlefield, rather than just finished polishing his armour

Started the bases (and Ahriman's one, so I can finally call him finished). I just need to wait for them to dry, and then I'll spray them and drybrush them.


Automatically Appended Next Post:
I decided to take a photo of the entire painted army (so far). Unfortunately, the unpainted bases were the same colour as the background, and my photo editing software didn't recognise the difference, so theres a bit of white background around the edges. Sorry.

Hi all.

I was looking over my KSons collection and have noticed my lack of progress. By this thin last year, I had finished my intire RG army minus the tanks and droppods, but I've only got 15 or so Thousand Sons done.

So to motivate myself, I decided to purchase something big as a centerpiece.

My options are quite limited, since I just a spent a ton of money on my Eldar, but I have enough funds to buy myself on 50£ or so mini from FW. So my options are:

-Predator, probably an Executioner.
-Vindicator
-GW land raider.
-Some Rapiers, because (to quote my fav BL novel) there is always need for a track-mounted cannon.


I am also going to try my hand at scratch building some Crassus armoured transports as Counts-as Spartans, and build a few tarantulas ( in thinking of doing a living statue kinda thing). So what do you guys think?

I've always been a fan of predators personally so that's probably what I would pick.

That being said a battery of rapiers would be fun. Puppets War sell a few good alternatives if you didn't want to go the FW route. https://puppetswar.eu/category.php?id_category=279

Careful with declaring something a centerpiece model though, I did that with my fellblade, then my Dreamforge knight, then a big flyer and now I have three companies of space marines!

Also the best way to make some good progress is to set deadlines for yourself, nothing too crazy but give yourself a couple of weeks to get a unit done. There are also a few painting challenges running on dakka atm that you could join
