Great looking forces, I love the feathered/winged theme you have going on as-well, really suits Tzeentch and I hope you keep it up on all DP's and GD's.
Really impressive painting and converting ability too IMHO, particularly considering how long you've been out of the hobby. Subscribed.

Ok - accepting that this is WIP - this is awesome. The forward stance, the swinging censer/mace (from the Skaven line right?) all imparts a wonderful sense of movement.

Also, I love the raptors - the 1ksons helms really work with the Blood Angels bodies/wings.

Looking foward to your paintjob on the your other DP!

I managed to finish my Daemon prince of Tzeentch this weekend, there’s no chance he will be missed on the battlefield.

His colour scheme is based on the Eclectus Parrot, his bone parts aren’t great as it’s not something I’ve painted much before so I might re-visit those parts later. His demon weapon I decided to try out a sort of white kind of bone effect , it doesn’t look so great in the picture as you can’t see the highlights which always seems to be the case in my images but they are there!



I picked an unusual colour rather than the standard blue as I like to be different, when I pick up my Lord of Change I might do him the standard colour or base him on a different parrot. When I used to play 40k chaos were always bright and colourful, GW seem to have lost some of that over the years the latest codex being a very good example, if its chaos paint it black.

I’m not sure what’s up for painting next it’s either a squad of Thousand Sons or a Warmachine figure I picked up cheap on ebay for something different to paint.

I really like the sculpt and I get the parrot scheme but it doesn't work for me personnally. I dunno if I saw that in battle I don't think I would be quaking in fear I think it would be better in more traditional Tzeentch colours and it would tie in with thousand sons better too.

I wanna see your chosen painted too. They look cool but It's hard to tell when they are all black.

Personally, I like the the parrot paint scheme you've used on your prince there. I haven't seen it done before, and it definitely makes it stand out from the rest of your 1,000 Sons.

Thanks I was going to paint them next due to your comment. I started to get them ready for painting last night but have had some news that a club may be strarting very soon in my area so I've had to put them back on hold while I get some of my basic troops painted, otherwise I wont have a playable force. I plan on weathering these using the tips from grey_death's site, I'm going to try and pull off a red look to the damaged area's to make it look like they were the original Thousand Sons who have since painted their armour blue.

I feel like the slowest painter in the world at the moment, it’s taken me ages to paint the figures for this post and they are my basic troops!

Well I tried both ways of painting the Thousand sons with damage didn’t look great the idea works fine but not with the way I paint my armour. I also tried painting selected parts in red and they looked too much like Khorne worshipers.

So in the end I painted them up as standard Thousand Sons as below, the sorcerer will follow later as I'm waiting for some new paints to come in the post so I can try a different way of painting gold on him.



I got a few bargains as well off ebay a load more Thousand Sons marines which I chucked in the freezer so I could break them all up again as they weren’t in the best positions.

I also got a Forge World daemon prince of Khorne, he did have a lot of spikes missing so I spent most of yesterday chopping bits off left over parts to make him spiky again and I also gave him a nice Micro Art base as well. Here he is below, he's all sprayed up now ready for some paint at a later date.



More bits this time from Forge World I picked up the special weapon pack for the Missile Launchers and Melta Guns. Here's some Thousand Sons from my bargain buy with their new weapons.

Trying to get these to stick together was a compete nightmare every time I thought I had them sorted, When I picked them up something fell off.



I've also ordered my Necrosphinx so the Thousand Sons Necrodefiler will be happening soon.

Not sure what’s up next on the painting block, we shall see.

Hi the blue is done as below, I'm using Vallejo paints but I've listed the GW version of the same colour as well.

Base coat Army painter spray black
Undercoat Imperial Blue (Regal Blue GW)
Highlight inside areas of Imperial Blue with a mix of about 70% Imperial Blue (Regal Blue GW) 30% Magic Blue (Enchanted Blue GW)
Highlight any areas where light would reflect Magic Blue (Enchanted Blue GW)
Ink Wash Asurmen Blue

Oh does anyone have any ideas for the colour of the Necrodefiler's rear body, I was thinking of a ruby effect but I don't want it too Khorne like as the main body will be gold of some sort.
