Thousand Sons: Magnus The Red 01 WiP

+++ Magnus the Red! +++

The start of a new year and time to hit the ground running! So I am starting straight into a Christmas present with the big man himself: Magnus the Red, father of the Thousand Sons! While I am doubtful I will end up running the model, I couldn’t deny the thrill of putting him together. Lets jump right in with some pictures:

As you can see I have left the armour and wings off to make it easier to paint everything. I am still back and forth about keeping the chest armour. Possibly re-sculpt it to lose the nipple horns or just leave it off altogether. I do not understand the design point of those horns. At the moment I have left the crown off as well, I quite like the look of it. The crown will most likely stay off altogether.

The base is going to have a cracked ground feel, I want to have either lave or glowing green light coming up from the cracks in the ground. What do you think?

Greenstuff work on the wrist twist.

The various bits of green stuff were modified so the wrist had a better angle and to filled in gaps were the model didn’t sit quite right. Some of the parts just didn’t connect correct, even after filing them back. This is not a great sign on such an expensive model.

Gaps on the shoulder and wrist being adjusted and filled.

 

The other wrist still needs some smoothing out.

Things coming up this year in the next couple of months posts are some Old School Eldar from Allen Stroud and my other Christmas presents: Scarab Occult and Exalted Sorcerers.
