Heresy Era Thousand Sons - Falchion painting nearly complete...

Got a little more detail work done on the Falchion last night and was able to snap a couple pics in the daylight over lunch:


Adding in a bunch of gold trim, and finished up the glowy-green bits on the power cables and runes along the side skirts. I considered doing up all the (hundreds of) rivets in gold as well, but in the end I thought it may end up looking too busy.


Fairly pleased with how the main targeter array turned out, lots of wet blending which isn't my forte but all in all it turned out to be a fairly smooth gradient. Now it's just a matter of picking out all the little remaining details here and there and hope for a warm day to get it sealed!

Glad you didn't gold up the rivets... I think this look is perfect!

If I had a super-heavy like this I would push it around the table making tank noises.

She looks thoroughly beautiful. Those wee green bits in the muzzle region have really paid off in particular!

Still looking even more awesomer!

Thanks folks!

@Oink - Glad you agree, been waffling back and forth. Red it is!

@Chris - Hah! I'll admit I've pointed it at some other models and made zapping noises.

@Pete - I appreciate it. Still a bit more to do with the green glowy bits on the muzzle/barrel, but it's coming together nicely.

@LuckNo.5 - Hopefully the final shots will be extra even more yet still awesomer. Heh. May have to bug you for a tank banner for this beast, seeing as the one on the Land Raider turned out so nice...

I second Chris on this one! It looks brilliant! It's perfect to sit along side all your other superb thousand sons!

Yeah, this is insanely cool!

Thanks folks - it's definitely going to have pride of place as the centerpiece for the army!

I appreciate it!

@#2501 - Thanks, it's all starting to come together.

@jugger - Thanks, it's fairly simple to achieve, I did a post about it here:

A really sterling effort, and a worthy army centrepiece. Particularly impressive painting of the bold colours without blotches. Really great effort as ever!
