They are looking very nice!
I have always loved the look of the Thousand Sons but was never a big fan of the CSM.

Thanks!

@ 3eland, yeah, in terms of actual models, about the only CSM stuff I like are Thousand Sons and Death Guard... they have a ton of good illustrations, but it's so very rarely translated well into minis... not sure why.

Your blue on these "pops" really nicely. Good looking models!

Thanks!


@ 3eland, these are what I consider most of my commissions to be- around high tabletop/low display (of course, this is pretty highly subjective, but I think that my painting levels are pretty consistent...). These are on the pricier end because they're practically made out of trim, but they're in my standard price range... I sometimes do characters etc. at higher end levels, but this is about what I consider standard.

Thanks! The guy's getting a good deal on these b/c I didn't factor in as much time for the trim as it turned out it takes :roll:

Next update, some termies (and more words):

Beautiful - and sorry about the hassle with the Egyptian bits. They looked like they would be easy swaps. Glad you were able to make them look so cool!

Oh, just realized the name... duh :P

No worries, always worth a little extra effort to make something good... just wish the other headdress bits had also been usable- I kept trying to make them look good on the obliterators, but they kept looking all lumpy/fugly...
