Thousand Sons Daemon Prince Conversion

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!

Magnus the Red – White Dwarf’s model of the month!

Whenever I get any of my miniatures in White Dwarf it’s always awesome, but this month my Magnus the Red has not only been featured but is also the Model of the month!

It honestly never gets old seeing my stuff in the Dwarf, 15 year old me wouldn’t believe it if I could go back in time and let him know! 😀



Tzaangor Test Mini

So, I am determined this year to “finish” my Thousand Sons army. They are my favourite flavour of Space Marine, but I don’t have a fully painted force of them.

With this in mind I have recently finished a test model for Tzaangors. I have approximately 80 or so Tzaangors to paint, and I needed a scheme that wouldn’t take forever, but wouldn’t look too shabby up close.  Pretty happy with the results. The highlights aren’t as crisp as they could be, but I have two Shamans in my force, so I can spend some quality time on those!
