I made the previous mistake of trying to do all the purple at once. It is more efficient but it is a bit of a pain and fiddly, I'll try and be better for the next lot and stick to the plan! It doesn't help if the efficiency gain is cancelled out by the hassle tongue.png

 

I missed the comment on the previous mistake - can you elaborate on this please? I'm all ears when it comes to removing hass from painting TSons!

Nothing that radical, just that there's a sweet spot for batch painting. The more you do the better of course but there's a cut off where the gains begin to drop. The more fancy the model the fewer you can do before you get bogged down. Especially for models/colour schemes that have a lot of building up before the pay off.

 

I think this might be three models for Rubrics as they're very detailed, and blocking in is time consuming. By splitting the models up you can feel like you're making more progress as you can see the models come to completion, then you can swap back to working in bulk once you've got passed the hassle stage. For my Sons that's mostly the bluple, once that's done it's a lot easier to do all the Leadbelcher and gems etc at once smile.png

Totally agree. I find 4 is that tipping point. Sometimes it can be done. Other times I regret it.

Gotcha, Rubric Burn Out is a thing. They burned me out even with the older metal/plastic hybrid kit. I'll be doing my next power rubes in 1-2s I think.

Yep, and to prove the point I'm working on my KoS tonight tongue.png To be fair I've finally got it ready for painting so I was going to dive in sooner or later... but on the other hand I'm fine with a break from the Rubrics laugh.png I'll dip my toes back in soon smile.png

How have I not seen these before. Adoring the purple Rubrics! Mine are purple too, though I went with Silver trim instead of gold.

Once I've done some touching up only a few colours left, I should looking to finish them off this week biggrin.png Definitely a lot easier working in bulk once you get passed the Leadbelcher tongue.png

very nice. 

 

It doesn't look like you magnetized the hands, so i assume you just left off to make painting easier?  (good call.  Wish i had thought of that when i did mine!!!)

 

Where is the head for the aspiring sorcerer from?  Are you leaving it gold? Or just haven't painted it yet.   (Destro the exalted sorcerer!)

Thanks! Yes the weapons and backpacks I always keep off as it makes painting the models much easier. Some bits are still fiddly to paint as the Sons models have so much detail on, but I don't think that having them less assembled would make painting any easier overall once you've juggled bits and finding out which loincloth goes on what legs...

 

The head is from the MkIII Tactical squad, gives a nice clean look and a suitably determined expression :) I'll be aiming for a more bronzed skin tone for him, though I'll need to review my paints to this end.

A productive weekend, the Rubrics are complete:

 

gallery_30308_15068_14098.jpg

 

I didn't have any suitable colours for the head so I ended up mixing and it came out well (better than in the picture). I think I'll do this again next opportunity, maybe the next SOT Sorcerer (because you can never have just one squad)? This marks a milestone in enough models to form a Battalion:

 

gallery_30308_15068_32491.jpg

 

Only just, squeaking by on the bare bones and not a good one but it's a start biggrin.png I'll swap to other armies for the next project or two before coming back to my Sons; that will be the remaining 9 bolters and 1 SRC to bring my Troops up to full strength :)

Thanks guys, it's nice to finally have something that resembles an army of sorts tongue.png I keep looking at Ahriman Akhenaten but I must be good and do the third Rubric box first. I am getting close to completing all my Sons models; 10 Rubrics, 4 Scarab Occult, 2 Exalted Sorcerers, 1 Akhenaten, and 1 Contemptor. Though in amount of work maybe that's more like half way through..? sweat.gif

 

Once these are all done I will look to the next additions, as that'll be comfortably into 9th I'm expecting that to be the main decision maker for a fledgling force. Some more Rubrics are something you can't go wrong with I'm sure, and a single squad of Termies is too few so I'll be thinking here first. Otherwise probably some more AT, maybe in another Dread?
