Heresy Era Thousand Sons - Assault Squads actually complete!

Success! I ended up braving the heat in the hobby loft after work yesterday and got the two assault squads finished, flocked and sealed.


Assault squad Mekhata


Assault squad Besenmut


Basically all that remained was some highlights on the bone weapon casings and the usual blue power cables and jump pack thrust nozzles so it went rather quickly. The addition of some grass tufts gives the bases a little extra zest and they're good to go!


The painting chart is encouraging at this point - nearing the tipping point where there's more done than not. Not bad at all! Next up, a trio of Drop Pods - not glamorous, but integral to the Khamasiin's deployment strategy!

Nice work, love those wings

I do like how much attention the wings get. Everyone has a razor focus on them.

Wicked cool. The winged sergeants make a nice focal point for the squad.

Haha awesome dude! They all look great The green wings really work well on the sarge, and give that supernatural vibe with the green colour.

Amazin' as always. Especially if your horribly hot weather is as debilitating as our hot weather.

@Todd Sherman: Thanks very much!

@NafNaf: Cheers, bud! They should all tie together nicely once I get a family photo taken!

@Zzzzzz: Indeed, literally having to paint at 4 in the morning to deal with the heat. Lovely warm in the hobby loft in the winter, but sweltering in the summer!
