Niu Pre-Heresy by skycat Niu Pre-Heresy by skycat
My Forgeworld Contemptor Dreadnought, equipped with twin Kheres Assault Cannons and painted in pre-Heresy Thousand Sons livery. The IV on his knee represents the Fourth Fellowship.

Oath of moment on the cannon, shell casings, tabard, chains and fastenings made from greenstuff, chain ornaments and nasal crest made from plasticard.

Had fun with this guy, and I'm especially pleased with the tabard and ornaments. Though I'm not happy with how the red came out - I worked it up too much and lost most of the purple shades in the darker areas, as well as the edge highlights. Ah well, 'swhat I get for rushing it to get it done by Games Day, hehehe.

And that gorram Sons symbol never gets any easier to paint. >_<

Duuuude...this is BEAUTIFUL! I love the heating on the miniguns.
Also, there is a nice contrast betheween the red dread and white snow.

Thank you! :D The heating on the cannons was a bit of an experiment, I'm so glad they turned out decent, hehehe. And yeah, I love the contrast of the red against the blue/white snow.

The effect on those double Kheres Cannons is really great! Also the work with the tabard is phenomenal!

Thank you! The cannons was an experiment that fortunately worked. And man, that tabard was such a pain to do, but I'm so pleased with how it turned out. :D

Well nice paintjob. Love the overheat effect, but with this kind of arm positioning... Well it just looks like he's shooting at the ground (A bit senseless I think).
