Hey guys, I recently painted up some Rubricae for a challenge on someones blog (painting up a neglected unit of 3+ models). I decided on some of my Rubrics! I just have another two units to go... which at this rate will take about 15 more years.

 

I bought a "tournament ready" army off ebay, they had 3 colours on them... Silver, Blue and Tin Bitz. They have been like that for about 8 years. I've popped a comparison photo there too.

Not perfect but better than it was I think. My friend is always getting some love for his Space Wolves... So I thought I should even the balance against our ancient enemies.

 

Let me know what you guys think

Looking good. Nice to see somebody revisiting models that need a little more work to take them to the next level.

Looking nice! I like how gritty it looks.

A big improvement, we should all give our older models such attention! Colours are very nice for the classic scheme especially the force sword :tu:

Thanks guys! It's not prefect but id like to get them all to kind of this standard as a start.

I actually really like doing custom schemes but really wanted them to be recognisable as Thousand sons. So the two unique bcha ges I made was to give them white gauntlets, and red body armour for the sorcerers.
