My latest project has been finishing off my Thunderfire Cannon and painting up the accompanying Techmarine. I picked this model up at Games Day (UK) 2014 during what can only be described as a biblical shopping spree which reduced my credit card to tears. I still don't know how I managed to carry all my new shiny stuff back in the train but I guess the will of a nerd is unbreakable when it comes to hobbying!
I am very happy with this model... and would say that he has the best quality paint job I have managed thus far. I originally planned to paint the model in the traditional colours of my chapter however I decided to try something new and went with the traditional colour scheme of the Adeptus Mechanicus. I enjoyed the change in primary colours and using the red took me back to painting my Blood Angel back in the 1990's. The quality of the model is breathtaking; the details are very intricate but I think I have done it justice.
As for the Thunderfire Cannon itself, I applied Typhus Corrosion to the tracks and lower parts of the model and then I added Nihilakh Oxide to the Gold Winged Skull on the front of the weapon. I enjoyed using these technical paints and will continue to experiment as I continue to paint more models.
Next up.... my very own Cypher Conversion. Exciting!
