Hey Wraithlord, I just wanted to say thanks for the info on how you did your army. I really love the look as I said previously and I borrowed your technique for washing over boltgun metal except I did it with black for my black legion. It really is an excellent look and I thank you for the creative ideas and inspiration.

Think I have definitely found the way to go with the paint scheme. Did this last night and there are only a few things left to do to finish the model.




Little bit more done. Just the sword and the shoulder icon to be done now (base of course). Not really sure at this point if I want to do the sword in my power weapon style or not. I am thinking of doing the Tzeentch shoulder icon in that manner and the sword might be too much. I will think about it.


one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Beautiful. I love the metalic blue

Someday I'll convince you to paint my minis

Starting to think that the red cloak lets the paint job on the rest down a bit. Might have to rethink the way I paint the cloth for this theme.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Is that cloak added to the model or is it part of the kit? I'm not sure if it's the colour or just the cloak itself but it looks 'awkward'. What a useful post; one of those 'I can't explain it' type comments haha.

The red goes I think, but maybe I imagine something a bit more decorative for TSons, like embroided patterns across the bottom. I also think that the sword would look better done in your power style, just to break up the amount of metallics on there. I think that'd make a larger impact on the model as a whole.

Yeah it is gs'd. I may repaint the cloak, maybe put some freehand designs on it or something.

Havent looked at every page yet, liked the character conversions towards the back (i started from the back ), really interesting way to paint thousand sons, gives them a fresh look.

Just finished going through every page. Wraithlord, you are AMAZING!

If i knew how to give rep, i would. For the moment though, just imagine i did (hypothetically speaking)

"If toast always lands butter-side down, and cats always land on their feet, what happens if you strap toast on the back of a cat and drop it?"

It's so simple to be wise. Just think of something stupid to say and then don't say it."
