Thousand Sons Scorpion Paint

By | 14th August 2017

+++ Now with paint +++

Things have been too quiet in the Silver Tower of Lord Heka and so I got back to work on my defiler conversion for my 8th edition Thousand Sons. I held off painting it for a while as I was going to do something new and didn’t want to mess the model up.

Fear the glowing eye!

You see normally when I highlight anything I go with a drybrush, it is easy and fast. But now and then you need to try and expand your horizons. As such the hightlights on the blue for this were all done by careful brush strokes. Not sure how much it has helped.

Thousand Sons Defiler ScorpionKeep in mind this beasty is still a work in progress but let me know what you think. For some colour I also added some red to the cables on the legs and tail.

With the defiler progressing nicely I am looking towards the next set of reinforcements for my Thousand Sons. Some proper armour. Hopefully I will get onto them soon and get some good progress. I am thinking of placing a lot of runes on them.
