So, this is the second Daemon Prince/Contemptor Dread conversion I completed, but it is technically the third one. As it is the one showing the most corruption. I really enjoyed this project, and I have had to prevent myself from going too overboard with it, as it is a gaming piece. But I am happy with how he has turned out!
Managed to get a little bit of this chap painted. Just working through the colour palette for him at the moment, some of his skin is likely to be fleshy coloured, as I always like there to be a hint in there that this used to be a man.
I have recently been working on my Daemon Prince conversion.
Given how few new miniatures Thousand Sons got (compared to Death Guard), I have been using it as an excuse to explore some more ideas for them. I knew I wanted to use the Psychic Contemptor Dreadnoughts in my army, and I use them as Daemon Princes (the size of the minis, and the in game rules don’t very massively!). I also wanted to show the sliding scale of corruption. So the Osiron dread has been left as is, just a few little bits added, and a nice blue paint job.
I also have a plan to make a middle ground Contemptor Dreadnought, in which some mutation is showing through, but not quite as much as the one I am working on now.
It’s early days yet for it, and I have only done tiny bits of green stuff work and converting, but I am really enjoying it!
So, this is the first of the 80 Tzaangors I need to get painted for my Thousand Sons army.
The plan is to paint five of these guys up “Quickly” and then treat myself to something else. This could be something else to do with my Thousand Sons, or something totally different. Just trying to make sure I don’t suffer from Tzaangor-fatigue!
