PH Thousand Sons Conqueror Robot UP by Proiteus PH Thousand Sons Conqueror Robot UP by Proiteus
Gotta say these old models do take a long time to paint, credit to the golden daemon winners who won with old models back in the day.
Iím very pleased with how the model came out using the chaos thousand sons paint scheme as described in the book, halfway through painting the model I decided to paint the upper half gold, which makes it look less like an ultramarine robot and more a thousand sonsĎ.

I was a bit worried about the blue and red clashing but I feel the gold ties the robots and thousand sons together really well.

Iím eager to hear your thoughts on this one.

I was making a Thousand Sons army and I happen to have three of those old Space Crusade dreadnoughts lying around. That is a pretty tempting idea, and I hope you don't mind if I borrow it...

It's allways great to see some old space crusade models pop up over time. Yes painting was difficult in those days, and a lot easier as well (less detail so more interpretation, also, the accrylic paint we had didn't coat too well, and emale paint (modelpaint tins) was lousy for washing.
Still, resultwise I think the general quality of painting has gone up over the years, and I'd like to add these models to the list of evidence for that.

Very nice job on both of these models. Seeing these makes me want to venture down into the basement and unearth my copy of Space Crusade (if I can find it!) and give you a run for your money. Well done sir.
