Heresy Era Thousand Sons - Predators and Scorpius painting continues

Managed to sneak in a couple more hobby hours and put some further work into the rhino variants - so far so good! Still more detail work to go, then it'll be time to figure out the weathering.

Sticking with the relatively limited palette that was used on the spireguard with bone, blue and gold. So many rivets, makes me shudder to think how many are going to be on the new Falchion !

While I was about it, I'd knocked together a quick sorcerer to act as an HQ choice in the short term while I scheme on how to do up some convincing character models (or wait for FW to do some). Started blocking in the basic red on him before having to call it a night. So far so good!

Heresy Era Thousand Sons - Predators and Scorpius painting begins

Been getting beat up by Real Life(tm) for the last several weeks, so there hasn't been time for hobby stuff of late. Snatched an hour after work today however and banged out the base red on a trio of heavy support units!

Standard red recipe - Dark Flesh basecoat, heavy drybrush with gory red followed by a lighter drybrush of blood red, and then the whole shebang gets a wash of carroburg crimson. These will need to dry for a while, but next up will be the bone color step. Going to be doing the various inset panels on the front and sides of the rhino chassis, as well as the weapon housings on the turrets - looking forward to getting stuck in!
