Heresy Era Thousand Sons - Sorcerer Cabal continues, again...

Another quick hit - Not a huge amount of painting time but managed to squeeze in enough to block in the basic white and blue undercoats. They're looking a little less Khorne-y now!

They're very flat so far, just a Vallejo Stonewall Grey as the underpinning of the white, and Magic Blue for the basecoat of the turquoise. More highlights and washes to go before these two colors are complete. The weather has turned rather warm of late and the hobby loft is starting to get less amenable - Time to get the window AC unit reinstalled, I think. Though it being Colorado we could still get one more snowstorm before spring is out!


  1. Blink and you miss it - I went to bed and the last post of these saw them red, wake up and now they are coloured. Painting Machine mate.

  2. That green warp magic, just so good!

  3. Blocking in those colours really helped chief. Glad to see them coming along.

    Will you be keeping this version of the army?

  4. These are coming along nicely!

    Any thoughts on the direction 40k is taking?

  5. It's impressive to see what a little spot-colour session can do for minis. One minute they were lacking interest, now, they are popping already!

  6. @Frothing Muppet: Hah! It's only eight guys, so it feels super fast after doing all the Vets. :)

    @Zab: Thanks man! Pretty happy with the effect.

    @Rory Priest: Indeed, pretty happy with how they're coming along! You know me man, these will inevitably end up on the auction block. Not for a while though, keeping them at least through the end of the year for NOVA!

    @#2501: Thanks! I'm actually liking most of what I've read in the rules teasers, and am cautiously optimistic about it. It may rekindle my desire to paint up some 40k models again!

    @Dai: Cheers man! Totally with ya - I'm itching to block in the colors on the bases soon, that should really help 'em snap into focus.

    I appreciate the kind words, folks!

  7. Coming along really nicely! Good timing, based on the recent reveals, Rubric marines look set for a nice comeback.

  8. @Michael Corr: Thanks very much! I'm interested to see what Forge World does with them on the transition to 8th edition.

    @Francesc: I appreciate it!
