WIP: Thousand Sons Obliterators

Here's another Thousand Sons' project I being working on together with the dreadnought. My client requested the obliterators to be convert into Thousand Sons version. It took me quite awhile to figure out what to add on. It must consist on few aspects: (1) Tzeentchish Egyptian, (2) loincloth, (3) knight pattern helmet, (4) Scrolls, & (5) gemstones.

It took me more than a week to do sculpting. Plus, those big gap between the finger weapons & hands really gave me a hard time. So here are my completed Thousand Sons version obliterators. On to a painting process....

Check out the original looks of it:

Blast from the Past: Journey Towards Tzeentch (part 1)

Chaos in Warhammer 40K is a very interesting army to collect. Among the 4 gods of Chaos (Khorne, Nurgle, Tzeentch, Slaanesh), I like Tzeentch most. The thing why it capture me is 'Sorcery'. In painting, you can really comes up with many ideas of painting it.

When my client commission me to paint an army of Thousand Sons Chaos Space Marine last year, I knew it's time to put my skill to test and bring out all the ideas to the models. After I've done many researches, the most important aspect of Thousand Sons is Tzeentchish Egyptian of 40K. So my client requested me to put the aspect into the models.

The 1st model I've painted was the rhino. You can follow this link here:

For the 2nd, I've painted a 9 men squad lead by an Apiring Sorcerer which I've specially convert to give him a icon standard.

This is the original model. Look clearly what I've done for the 2 sorcerer.

The 3rd, I've painted another same squad as above. This time my client requested to make the Aspiring Sorcerer different from the previous and add something that represent they hate Space Wolves (archenemy). It took me 2 days to design to model & 1 week to finish it.

Well, there goes all the past work I've done for Thousand Sons. More are coming... Dreadnought, Spawns, Obliterators.

Glory to Tzeentch!!!!

WIP: Thousand Sons Dreadnought

Sorry for the slow posting again. The problem is that I'm very blur with all those photos editing and most of the time I let my wife to do it. (But she being very busy recently...) Just few days ago I've found on Coolmini an article of posting photos, so I follow the instruction there. And here we go.

Here's the secret project that I've being working on. Only few friends know what actually this dreadnought all about. Well, its a Thousand Sons dreadnought... duh!! But I have far more ideas than just a normal dreadnought. For me, I like to do something that nobody done before and go beyond my level for each project I received; and also to give inspiration to others. You just try to guess what 'kind' of dreadnought I'm going for.

Here's the link to the original dreadnought. Check out what's the difference I've made.
