Heresy Era Thousand Sons - Spireguard Shadowsword build complete!

Couple little packages in the mail when I got home from work today, the missing leg piece for the Reaver (pics of that to come), and the targeters for the Shadowsword. As I didn't have much hobby time this evening, I settled on clipping out and gluing on those rather than dive into the major construction project that the Reaver will undoubtedly be!

Building out the targeters took all of ten minutes, not super exciting but good to get a little bit of hobby time in. They could stand to be just a little bigger perhaps, but overall I'm quite happy with how they turned out!

They're predicting another 50F day tomorrow which is on the bottom end of what I consider viable primering temperature, fingers crossed as they're saying it's going to be a winter wonderland for the week following Christmas - hope to get the builds from the last few posts primered so I'll have some stuff to paint over the holiday break while it's chilly!


  1. Oh god you must love painting rivets. Good luck with the priming. We have had nothing but rain tomorrow is is 11 C here. NO ONE ever dreams of a grey Christmas :( At least there's snow on the hills so I'm not too sad. That tank looks boss :)

  2. this is such an awesome job! nice work sir!

  3. Really awesome tank. Good luck with those rivets!

    Trip for priming, if its via can, you can put the can in hot water to bring it up to temp! Gives you a few minutes.

  4. @Zab: Hah! Next army will definitely NOT have painted rivets, that's for sure. :)

    @jabberjabber: I appreciate it!

    @Greg Hess: Thanks man! That's a great tip on the spray primer!

    Cheers folks!

  5. Targeters look great, where are they from?

  6. Tank looks amazing.

    Hope the weather allows for primer, I want to see this painted!

  7. @Dave Henderson: Thanks! They're from the "Squadron Command Frame", which can be found under the Bits > Vehicle Accessories section on the GW site.

    @Dai: Cheers man! Looking forward to getting some paint on it, for sure!

  8. If you didn't crank out the paint on these projects so fast, I'd try and reprimand you for building too much...mostly to try and make myself feel better ;)

    Looks awesome as always my friend :)
