Last post on the blog showed off my reimagining of an old Contemptor conversion. I took it from Khorne to the Thousand Sons. I had a few things left undone (an arm for example) and some stuff that didn’t sit right, like the sword. I’ve got some more work done on it. As you can […]Read more "WIP: Thousand Sons Contemptor conversion, pt 2"
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 […]Read more "Paint job: Thousand Sons Forgefiend Conversion"
With Kill Team really blowing up, I’m looking at my different armies and building all sorts of warbands. Since Thousand Sons is my primary army for 8th editions, I took a Thousand Sons Kill Team for my first spin. It was a ton of fun. Just as in regular Warhammer 40,000, Thousand Sons picks are […]Read more "Paint job: Tzaangor Twistbray"
“Ok, boys, bolt me up.” Aramis cursed the day he got his hand on Skullstalker. He loved the damn thing of course, it had saved him more times than he cared to remember and helped him land more plunder for the crew and captain than he could remember. It was a marvellous machine but he […]Read more "Paint job: Aramis in Skullstalker"
I love Terminators! There, I said it. Ever since I played Space Hulk for the first time back in the early 90s I’ve had a thing for dudes in Tactical Dreadnought Armour. They look truly indomitable and unstoppable. This edition they’re better than they have been since forever. Maybe not the best competitive choice at […]Read more "WIP: Scarab Occult Cataphractii Conversion"
Another finished unit, this time a Sorcerer in Terminator Armour. Unlike the MkIII Thousand Sons I showed you last time this ones a quite extensive conversion. I had to dig deep into my bitzbox to find everything I needed. Hell, I needed to do some sculpting too. I originally modelled him with a Force Sword […]Read more "Paint job: Thousand Sons Terminator Sorcerer"
The dark places, where the veil is thin and the ramparts of reality crack, that’s where you’ll find them. Or rather, that’s were they’ll find you. They’ll come hunting you in packs through the corridors of abandoned Space Hulks, the pale Wyrd Woods on the Fringe or the deep Undergrowth beneath the Warp infested places […]Read more "Paint job: Aether Wolves"
The Medusa is a symbiotic entity, an otherworldly parasite that latches on to a Drukhari host. Its terrible gaze is then weaponised (of course) and the Medusa often take place in one of the many courts of the Archons. I picked up a host of Drukhari Warriors on the cheap a while ago as I […]Read more "The Medusa Twins"
It’s been something like five weeks since I did any hobby involving actual models. I’ve been writing on a campaign that I should have finished like eight months ago but you know … anyway back to models. I’m still focusing on my Thousand Sons and I needed or wanted to add some additional units. I […]Read more "Back at it again"
Wow, part 11 of this WIP. I got some more paint down and it feels great. I’m really getting close now. I’ve boxed in and washed all the base colours. Once the washes dries I’ll pick out the blues again and start highlighting the metal and gold. And then the final details. So close. I […]Read more "WIP: Forgefiend Conversion, part 11"
