Good to see you getting started with the Sons, is this an established thrallband you're doing or a DIY?

Thanks! I've broken free of the lure of the best soup faction Corpse Emperor. I'm going with pre-heresy TS, I have 20 MKIII marines on my desk to get around to starting. Not a big fan of the whole mutated chaos vibe for marines, so I'm looking at more of the older chaos models (e.g. the metal Chaos Dreadnought over the new Helbrute).

Thanks! Trying to use the blue eyes to tie everything together across all the different paint schemes.

... unfortunately that didn't work on the flamers, but they're just reserves so they won't see much play to clash!

This is a great way to get them painted up quickly and looking great for the table top, agreed on the eyes being a good cherry on top :tu: If (when?) I get some Tzeentch daemons I'll be doing the same!

More progress! Nothing exciting, just another 10 horrors done. All the details here are slowing me down.

Yeah, all my Daemons are based with one or more contrast paints and then detailed with the more traditional paints. The Changecaster is based with Volpus Pink blended into 2 coats of the Purple for the limbs

I love what you're doing here and I'm admittedly a little jealous.

 

Can you estimate how long it takes you to finish a 10 man pink squad using the contrast paint system? 

 

I'm trying to think of ways to speed up my Tzaangors and/or expanding into Tzeentch Daemons. This just seems so much better than what I've been doing and the results are great.

Thanks man! I've been working away and playing video games instead of painting, however I'm getting to the end of the month so expect to see some more updates soon!

The contrast method is pretty fast; spray, 2 layers of contrast, paint all teeth/horns/claws Wraithbone & wash with Agrax, paint eyes Lothern, wash with the Nightshade and highlight barahoth & paint the jewelry to taste.

It probably takes me 3-4 hours including basing for 10, however I paint my metal in 3 stages - if you have a faster method that will really speed things up. As for Tzaangors I'm experimenting with bronze statues with Ver de Gris - I'll post results when I find something I'm happy with!

Ok, general progress! I've finished the flamers and the last (for now...) 10 horrors. 55 models for my first month's 500pts. All here to collate the month!

They look great all together, brings out the colour as is fitting for a Tzeentchian daemon horde! Nice work and at a good pace - what's next? smile.png

 

I think you owe my wallet an apology however, as it feels like this was the last straw in making me plan to add some Tzeentch daemons to my collection... sweat.gif

Hahah sorry! There's whispers on the wind that one of the players may be bringing a Chaos Knight at 1000 points - so I'm thinking Ahriman, a Daemon Prince and a whooooole load of Tzaangors. Otherwise I'm not sure, I may get the Ru-Brick up and running - or perhaps triple DP!

Ok, today was actually pretty productive compared to the last couple of weeks. Not 100% happy with everything, but I think they're at a good tabletop quality that I can go back and finish up/weather the DP as I get chance.

Daemon Prince

Test Tzaangor. As promised, bronzed statues. They have a real tabletop quality to them, I'm not 100% wild about them when they're up close - but as a unit at arms length they have a great look to them. Saved me hours painting them too, which is nice as I have another 25 to go.

Waiting until I'm a little more awake to attach wings to my next DP. I'm going for a more Daemon themed model as this one will be part of a Daemon Detachment most likely.

Alright, more progress!

My Terminator Sorcerer. I'm not sure why, but he doesn't feel quite finished - which is odd, as I normally have a pretty solid idea of how I want models to end up. Any suggestions are more than welcome!

The 25 man Tzaangor unit are finished up too, but I'll throw a picture of them up when I next get down to a store for some better background.

I agree with you - at least from the photo, he doesn't look finished.  For me (again, based on the photo) is there isn't enough definition to the white parts of the model - perhaps a wash of "the Fang" to his tabard and doing the recesses of the bolter (so, the inside grooves and corners where sides/edges of the bolter meet) with that paint as well?

Thant is one great army here! Nice done!

 

Painting the Tzaangors as bronzed statues is one hell of a good idea! I may steal that idea... :D

 

May I ask you what that dreadnought-alike daeomon prince is made of?

Thanks! Yeah, it's a major time saver - Prime gold, drybrush silver, wash with the Snakebite Contrast and then just add the details.

I have 60 total to finish up, and I saw plenty of complaints about how hard they are to paint - this was the solution!

It's this model here with 2 of the 4 engines from a Darkshroud Landspeeder as the Jumppack.
