Default Thousand Sons - The Path of the Wraithlord

Alright gents, I am going to do a project log here of my Thousand Sons chaos army as it slowly progresses. I am currently finishing off a few more models in the Tau army I have and then I am devoting myself to Chaos once more. I am not going to post a list with it as I tend to use varied lists based on the same theme quite often. Instead, this will just be the space where I take pics and show off what I am doing for those who are interested. I will focus on a single model or single unit at a time so that there will be a visible and easily followed progressing to the log (not to mention keeping me focused on the task at hand and not going off on tangents all the time lol). Pics to come tomorrow of my wip daemon prince.

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?

Took a small break from the Tau and got the skin mostly done on the prince.

Looking very sweet thus far. I tend to leave very little of the base coat showing in my figs but think that I need to change that tendency, and I really like the look of yours.

Q: Do you black-line or leave the primer coat showing in the recesses?

I leave the primer showing. Blacklining to me is just another step that is completely unneeded when painting a model. Just taking a little more time and leaving a bit of basecoat showing does the trick just as well if not better imho.

Looking very good Wraith. it is just blue but it still has so much depth. Only tackled blue once before and it was an extreme learning experience, so my respect!

Currently working on CSM (IW, Purge and Traitor Guard), Tyranids, Astronomican's Datasheet project....and oh yeah my thesis project

Astronomican's Datasheet Project - First Wave - 2nd Wave

lookin great wraith, very nice blue, quick tip, the areas u have left black lined are a bit too bold, try mixing some CB with regal blue watering it down and use it like a glaze in the shadows of the mini.

looking forward to seein the progress on this
