Paint job: Thousand Sons Forgefiend Conversion

Regular visitor to the blog might recognise this conversion. I began this project back in May 2016 and gave it a good run for a few months until I had to put it away for awhile. It was tucked away for just shy of a year. I made another push and almost finished it last fall. I just had a few last things left to do. They are now done and I can finally say: It’s done!

Now the Forgefiend leaves a lot to be desired game wise. It doesn’t suck but it need help to make it. A degrading BS 4+ on a gun platform is just poor game design, especially since it can’t move without getting -1 to hit. I got my fingers crossed for a points cut in Chapter Approved.

Some poorly taken pictures. I hope you like the beast, I surely do.

As you can tell from the pictures, one of the nostril things have broken off. I don’t know how to salvage the damage so I might as well just leave it as it is. My Thousand Sons Forgefiend Conversion is also my hobby challenge entry for November (keep ’em coming Azazel!).

If you like it, please let me know.

  1. That’s ace! I really like the original model (a divisive opinion I know) but this is much more in keeping with the twisted weirdness of Tzeentch and the world in which the Thousand Sons have found themselves operating by the 41st Millennium.

    1. Cheers! I like the original model too. It’s a great kit that will give you plenty of mileage. I made two Maulerfiends and now this Forgefiend from a single kit (and some bits).

      Glad you like it, mate!

  2. Ohh man this is awesome! Really like what you’ve done with it. So cool. The pic was loading really slow on my phone and it was like a really dramatic reveal!

    If there was ever encouragement needed for me to make one, this is it

    1. Cheers! You got the C64 treatment. Picture revealed pixel by pixel.

      It has been a long journey, no doubt, making the legs and carapace took forever to make. And getting everything together … it wasn’t entirely enjoyable. But hey, it’s done, it looks cracking so all those things fade rather quickly.

      Here hoping for a massive points drop in Chapter Approved.
