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.

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!

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 :)

That blue is great dude, lots of depth. Very nice. Nice choice of mini as well. That tail is greenstuffed isn't it?

Stock model. Only greenstuff on it is to fill in gaps in between the pieces.

Ok guys, while I am finishing up a few Tau models and working on Be'lakor here do me the favour of taking a look at this Thousand Son model I have done from before and tell me what you think it needs. I like the silvery blue and plan on keeping that but something about the models paint job is lacking too me. Maybe it is the amount of metallic paint on it, maybe not enough of contrasting colours, I don't know. I am hoping you guys can give some suggestions that I can use or at the very least get ideas of my own from. And don't worry about hurting my feelings or anything. Constructive criticism is exactly what I am looking for :)

The model is nice, but it seems that there is not much to actually grab hold of a person's attention. How about making the eye lenses really stand out, and taking the gold-tone up a notch, so that it looks a bit brighter?

And, most importantly, paint your base rim a different color. This is actually a big part of getting your actual mini to stand out.

Got a bit more done on the prince. The spikes are fine to me now but I am going to try something different with the horns on his head to try and blend them in with the skin tone more.

No reaction at all. This does not bode well for poor Be'lakor.

agree with hespithe here, painting looking good so far just hard to judge until you complete things to make the model stand out like the sword/face/chainskirt thingy, lookin forward to see'ing those parts done though, the wings might look good with a light blue/almost white fleshy tone to em, but not too sure bout that, my guess play around with it unless you have a image in your head for it already
