Heresy Era Thousand Sons - Assault Captain Besenmut build in progress

While I've done some painting over the holiday (pics to follow soon), I did get a wild hair to recreate a model from my previous version of the Thousand Sons, Assault Captain Besenmut:

Still got a bit of greenstuff work to do - going to do some muzzle flare and shattering armour at either end of the shots. The previous version just had one wire holding the models together so it was a little wobbly - Decided to go with two shots on this model to double up on the connection points.

Naturally the downed marine will end up being a Space Wolf, still need to find some bits to wolf him up a bit. Overall I'm pretty happy with the posing thus far!


  1. Looks fantastic. Love the pin work. Is that a particular rod you have laying around, or do you purchase them?

    My GF:
    "Tell him to hurry up and paint it"


  2. Nice; don't forget the ejected brass...

  3. Whoa, mate, that is an amazing piece! The shot going through the SWs helmet seems like he should produce a pretty gruesome "SPLAT!" effect, you know ;)

    Anyway, excellent job!

  4. @Greg Hess: Thanks man! It's just straight steel wire that I picked up at the local hardware store. Spent 10 bucks and got enough to last me until rapture!

    @Zab: Cheers, bud!

    @Zzzzzz: Good call! I'll have to have a rummage in the Closet of Doom for some Ork sprues!

  5. @KrautScientist: Thanks very much, man! I'm planning on doing a shot through the knee and the back of his head with some blood effects at the end, as well as some shattered armour coming off the jump pack housing. Gotta practice my GS skills first!
