So it’s been a little while since I posted (again). In the meantime we’ve had the gorgeous Thousand Sons Chaos Space Marines plastics released. It would have been rude not to have picked myself up a box to try them out.
So, a couple of weeks and one box of Rubric Marines later, and I’ve got the gold on an entire squad done. “Is that all?” I hear you say. Well yes. But then I’m also using Duncan’s method from Warhammer TV and done the gold to the exclusion of everything else. On the entire squad. So cut me a little slack!
Over to our left we have Dust Bunny #1 (or 9, how can you tell the difference?). Basecoat Retributor Gold, wash with Agrax Earthshade. Drybrush with Sigmarite along the edges and raised areas, and finally highlight the edges with Stormhost Silver.
Next up will be painting the blue. That’s intended to be Thousand Sons Blue as a base, wash with Nuln Oil, add a second coat of TS Blue, highlight with Ahriman Blue and then maybe an edge highlight with Baharroth Blue. The aim is to have the blue done by New Years, with the detailing finished by the middle of January.
Yes, I know glaciers advance at a faster rate, but this is me we’re talking about. I mean come on!
All that remains is for me to wish any readers a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I’ll see you all in 2017 (if not a little sooner).
