This is the latest conversion I am working on. He is going to be painted in my Thousand Sons scheme. These pics show the initial pinning stage (first pic) and the final modelling stage (2nd pic) with the exception of a giant eye growing out of the right shoulder pad. Tell me if any of you notice something different about the floating ball of flame that is cupped by the left hand :)

I love it, looks really hard. Interesting choice of Tau for the base, people usually go for loyalists on traitor bases.

To think, the time it'll take just to paint that base. It'll be worth it though. Great conversion, this guy's gonna look superb I'm sure, when done.

Nice stuff Wraithlord, the pose is great and ur GS work looks neat and tidy, just 2 points, the left (fire) hand could do with moving down a cm or 2, at the moment you have it positioned so it look like it has an upwards momentum, implying jumping/flying, try moving it down slightly so you get more of a downwards momentum, so he looks like he is stomping/crushin,

also his shoulders, above is head is an empy area where i think u can place somethin small to give the mini a further edge, perhaps a chaos rhino trophy rack, or chaos term trophy rack.
only small things but i really appreciate people pointing them out to me so i thought id mention it

Update

Here are a couple of pics showing the progress of the paint. The first pic is after 3 successive coats to get the basic blue colour I like to start from in order to highlight up to the final layer. The second pic is the finished blue armour and the banding picked out in Tin Bitz in preparation for further paint.




The face was going to be the same colour as the armour but I have decided to go in a different direction with the skin areas. More pics to come as I progress.

Update


The skin is now 3 coats in with substantially more to go. The eventual finished product will be almost a full flesh or pallid flesh tone with a hint of blue to show the blending of the skin and armour. Horns and claws will go slightly different with Bleached Bone being added in successive layers. At least, that is the hope :D



One thing I wouldn't mind getting a little feedback on is the scales on the wings (near the upper claw and such). What colours would you guys go with that? A different shade of blue to blend in a bit or a total contrast of somekind? And if so, what kind of contrast?

I am also thinking of doing further updates by editing the first post so you can see the progression better. Would you guys like that better if I did it that way for posting pics?

Few more pics. Skin is finished with only the scales and small details to be done now and the bone coloured areas are mostly done as well.
