Okay so here are a few pics of my Thousand Sons army as it stands right now. please forgive the poor quality i dont have access to a good camera. A couple of the shots are of some of my painted figures and the others are my Heldrake that like a moron i completely based by hand. No fancy sprays just a brush and insanity

Okay well time for an update or two first up here are my helbrutes named Crunchy and Stumpy. Crunchy, the melta brute, is named because every single time i shoot with him he misses but by god he crushes stuff in melee. Stumpy, the las brute, is named because well he just looks stumpy.

sorry for the image quality but i dont have acess to the best camera i have to make due with my wifes and its well we got it from Target on the cheap

Now here are a couple of pics of the Heldrake, i posted some earlier of it based now here are a few of it in a sort of half done mode. Yes all of my stuff looks half done. My mind wont let me focus on one project for too long i have to work on something else, then add on carpal tunnel and arthritis in my hands and a nice case of nerve damage and you end up with my army

Anytime mate, glad to be of assistance :good:

Your stories about your Helbrutes made me laugh out loud here at work. I've had the EXACT opposite situation with my Helbrute; He wrecks things when shooting but couldn't hit the broad side of a barn in close combat :(

so far my Las brute just snipes the shit out of things but never really gets into combat. I really want to see the power scourge in battle

Some good work going on here. The blue is a nice shade. I will say your metallics, especially on the LR and gold on the termies could do with a few washes and dry brushes to give them a bit of depth. The yellows could do with a brown wash well. Hope this helps.:good:

Bear in mind I am no great painter, just that the GW washes can really help a you take your painting up a notch or two without a huge amount of effort. They certainly did for me.

yeah still trying to get the metallics to work right. The blue was really just me being lazy. i base coated everything black, put a layer or two of Kantor blue on then washed with Nuln Oil then once with Drakenhoof Nightshade.

I have the codex supplement on order along with Abbadon. HAIL LUPRECAL
