Thousand Sons Update Time!

I'm embarrassed at how long it's been since I've posted pictures of my latest Thousand Sons Squad. I guess I'm also embarrassed by how long it's taken me to paint this squad. In my defence, I have painted and built quite a few other things.

Also, my picture taking skills seem to have gotten rusty. OK, I'll stop complaining here are the pictures...

Here's the whole squad. I have to put a layer of highlights on the gold and yellow, then pick out the details and I'm done.

Here's the front of my sorcerer. You may notice from the last time I posted a picture of this miniature, that some of the highlights on the tip of his cowl have warn off. This is because while I've been painting his mini, I've been using it in games. When I realized that routine game usage was wearing the paint off, I decided to stop using it in games until it was finished.

Here's the rear of the sorcerer. The robe came out a lot darker than I wanted, but oh well. It was the first time I used Foundation paints (Charadon Granite, specifically) and I didn't realize how dark it would come out.

This was a stab at taking a better picture of that Tzeentch Horror I featured recently. I think this picture may be worse. Also featured here is a work-in-progress Tzeentch flamer. Yes, I'm very, very excited about the demon codex.

I can't wait to see that flamer in person. It looks great in the pic.
