So I looked up my last thread, and ironically almost a year ago to the day I started yet another Black Templars army. I had so many requests to do commissions/work at the time that I decided to sell the army since the offers were too good to pass up. Since then, I started a decent Wolves army (which is fun, and I like painting it) but I guess I wanted to really make a painful decision to go back to my 40K roots.... So I just picked up a lot of stuff. A lot of stuff that is primarily Black Templars. I don't know if I'm crazy or not for doing this, but here is the start of the Patrol box, and the new Phobos (Infiltrators) from the new Kill team box set (so they have new cool bits.) Maybe this is a bad idea. I forgot how long it takes me to do these models. The first 3-4 stages of zenithal highlighting, and shadowing is done. I'm working on getting through this squad as they are not as inspiring as the other kits (much more 'crusadey' looking kits. ) Though the new Kill team bits keep these guys a bit more interesting. I hope I have it in me to continue the army.
Hey guys My old Thousand Sons thread is no more, so I thought I'd put up my new Ahriman here, and in case you don't check out the forge forum, I wanted some base feedback: So I'm well into my second Thousand Sons army after selling the first. I did them once with a basically earth tone/brown type of basing scheme. I usually sprinkle in some of the fancier resin bases I see that I like. This is my latest Ahriman on such a base. (It would fit in with a lot of schemes so I'm not too worried about it.) So here are two Tzaangors I painted. One is on a base from the GW line from the Sector Imperialis, the other is on a typical base I used in sand colours with Cork stone work. (I would probably rim either/both bases with Black like Ahriman's) So that's the basic consideration I have right now. Some of the characters would get 'fancy' sand bases from resin collections I have of bases. But if I go with the Sector Imperialis it's a different look... more along the lines of city fight. here are some other examples of how I paint those imperialis bases on my armies that do use them: Some Deathwatch on my Imperialis Bases: Some of my Custodes with those same bases: Now here is an example of some of my sand/cork bases in my Grey Knights: and some of the sand/cork mixed in with some resin bases for characters: So I think that's a good sample size for you to see. Now if you were taking my Thousand Sons into account, which bases do you think they would look better on?
