THOUSAND SONS - A squad of Rubric Marines


I recently finished a commission for these ten Rubric Marines and the might Magnus the Red. I handed them off to the client on the weekend and he was very happy, always a good thing : )

It has been a long time since I painted some Thousand Sons, and these new models are really spectacular (and super-detailed). My advice to anyone quoting on these? Think about how long you expect them to take, then double it. ; )





Cheers
Dave

  1. Sweet work Dave, did you spray Gold all over WHTV style first, or blues and then line colour all the golds?

    1. I did it in a similar order to Duncan, but I started with a dry brush of Hammered Copper, then Glorious Gold, then a gold/silver mix, followed by some thinned purple shading. Then I moved on to t blues/yellows etc.
