That is a really good looking TS. I really like the scarabs on the base, it adds something nice.

Solid work dude. Maybe weather it a bit since 1ksons are all like 10'000 yrs old but its a matter of opinion.
I look forward to viewing the squad and the sorcerer..

Thanks!

@ Novelist47, I may do some weathering on bigger pieces, but, doing this for a full army just isn't worth the work, I feel, since 40k armies are a lot bigger than I'm used to painting, these days.

Also, Tzeentch is, like, the god of OCD. Maybe all of the sorcs in the army get all twitchy when their followers are dusty, or they have a cleaning spell or something.

The centre of a massive brood chamber, heaving and pulsating.

Wow, awesome painting! I love it!

One nitpick though: Thousand Sons have gold trim, not silver. I know, it's a really petty thing to get hung up about, but I just couldn't help but notice.

Still, good work!

I really really love your blue. It's so.. vibrant! And honestly whether it is gold or silver trim, as long as it looks good it's perfectly fine! I've seen purple-gold thousand sons that looked amazing.
The powerswords(?) on the sorcerers look a little plain though.

@Squigsquasher, thanks! Yeah, the client wanted something a little non-standard, so I did bone instead of yellow and silver instead of gold...

@Know No Pear, cool, purple and gold seems like it would work nicely (though could be confused with emp's children)

And, yeah, for some reason, the power swords are photographing terribly... for whatever reason, I can't get my digital camera to register the gradient I have there... it's not strong, but way stronger than the pics make it look. The third sword is probably the closest.

Really clean and well painted models man, looks nice. The blue feeling you gave them is also really nice, really rich you could say, looks good man!

Inside of the Rhino is looking nice, well done on the interior.

Looking forward to see more from you!

What can we wait to see next?

@Logan, haha, thanks! Yeah, I'm pretty much on auto-pilot now, with Ahriman (spoiler alert!) as the only mini that took some more color choices.

@Know No Pear, cool- yeah, love the look of chaos sorcs- not many others can pull off a manly dress.

I really like your landraider and dreadnought basing well done sir! id be interested in knowing where the chest came from though, nice touch. I was thinking you could have sand swirls or sand that was in the recesses of the landraiders front assault ramp to give it more of an ancient look or Egyptian.

"There is no escape from chaos, it marks us all."
"Only i can hear your prayers here my friend, and i'm afraid i will not answer them."
"It must be magnificent to see a planet writhe and scream to feel it compulse beneath your own feet, witness it dying with living eyes such marvelous spectacle, the skulls are my gift, in time perhaps i will share this gift with every living soul in the galaxy."

Thanks! The casket is from the Tomb Kings line (I think it's Rare or a Lord?)

Re: the assault ramp, probably not sand (b/c it'd move too much for much to get lodged in there), but I could definitely see adding just a little more dusty look to match the rest. Thanks for the idea.

Those Obliterators are the best I've ever seen. Amazing work, and great painting. I like the blue and silver a lot more than the usual blue and gold.

Thanks! Those Oblits were a lot of fun to make. My old chaos army was Nurgle, so most of the conversions were pretty straightforward nurgly things, and the Oblits needed a little more finesse than "add more guts!"

Also, yeah, I was a little nervous about the silver instead of gold, but I think it gives them a more sombre feel.


Also the final post (I think)

That's a great looking army. I like that you didn't go "too Chaos" on the vehicles.

Thanks

Vet Sgt, yeah, I definitely believe in subtle chaos or completely demonic chaos, not a fan of most of the middling "throw more spikes on it" chaos.



Also, reposted because I decided to consolidate my 40k stuff together:

Test schemes starting off two chaos armies: warriors of chaos, which is a commission, and the first of many Night Lords for my personal collection. (And before anyone asks, no, the bases won't have silly edges like that when they're done)





And, as usual, thoughts on the models here.
