Pre-Heresy Thousand Son No.1 by Proiteus Pre-Heresy Thousand Son No.1 by Proiteus
Well this has to be my best painted model ever and heís only the first of 20 to 30 more just like him! Which is good as he took a week to paint. I used painting tutorials from 2 White Dwarfs to help me paint the model to the best of my ability; the Space Hulk captain tutorial for the armour and jewels and the high elf princeís for the gold, robes and sword. The hardest and most frustrating part was the symbols, especially the thousand sons logo but with a few snarls and curses later I was happy with it thou I will paint the scarab a little smaller next time.

I did try to paint an engraving into the bracelet but it didnít come out like I had hoped. Iím very pleased thou with how the robes came out.

Because Iím looking to make an army of artificer armoured warriors (count as terminators) I needed to include a personal teleporter for the deep strike ability and although the thousand sons can hurl object, lightning and fire they always carry a holster bolt pistol or bolter, itís a small detail I going to add to all of the warriors.

As for the base, due to his pose I couldnít place him on a flat 40mm base without him being dwarfed by it, so I created a raised platform for him using a resin 40mm and greenstuff.

Now Iím even more psyched to get started on the next model and try make it better looking than this one!

After you showed me the picture yesterday I was impressed but looking at it closer up now it looks even better, the painting in general is inspiring and the attention to detail is superb.

I can't wait to see more of these and I may have to take up your offer of making a pre heresy Wolves army for you to face

cheers

Amazing! The Thousand Sons are my favorite Pre-Heresy Legion (of the ones who joined Chaos).
