Dreadtober 2017 - Back to the old scheme

Just a quick hit today - As the current Thousand Sons force hasn't been sold yet I figured I ought to go ahead and match the Osiron dread to the old paint scheme so I can sell them all on as matching lots. Dragged out the gold and clear red and got down to it!


Nothing super fancy quite yet, got the basic red on, and started by picking out all the areas intended to be white with a medium grey color. Against the reds of the armor even this color ends up looking almost white, and means that I can work up with a few lighter greys to give it depth and highlight. Once that's done I'll move on to the gold, which on this model will be a significant amount of real estate!

Nice start man.. are you to the point where you can paint them with your eyes closed? 8)

@Todd Sherman: Hah! Pretty much, though I will admit a small shudder of revulsion about doing more red so soon. Switching back and forth between this and the Sons of Horus should help!

Aww it went red and not blue, real shame. Coming along nicely though.

Well, at least it won't feel lonely sat on a shelf without it's brothers.

@Rory Priest: Haha! Aye, painting him up to match the rest of the KSons currently on the shelf.

@Dai: Indeed! It was the last leftover model from the recent project, will be good to have it complete!
