When Games Workshop released the new Thousand Sons, though I am not into collecting them, I can only wish that I had those new miniatures to paint with. And wow, my wish came true, one of my clients wanted to start the new Thousand Sons army. Definitely was an excitement moment for me to get my brushes and paint ready.
The first project to start was the Scarab Occult Terminators. The terminators were awesome and fun to assemble. The only setback was the poses for the terminators, a bit far too stiff looking, if only they are in a more dynamic pose. Other than that, the details were amazing.
Client wanted a different colour scheme from the Game workshop ones for his Terminators squad. Started off with the colour scheme, Baldes of Magnus, from the codex. Its the reversed style from the default Game workshop painted ones. The main colour was painted with gold and the outline and trim were in Citadel Thousand Sons Blue, followed by highlight of Citadel Ahriman Blue.
Well, though the Terminators pose were a bit stiff, but once painted they looked amazing as a squad, as always.
