Actually, I finished Ahriman almost three weeks ago but totally forgot to post some pictures of him on the blog. I like the new pose of the model a lot more than the old one. It’s much more dynamic. Even Ahriman already came with a larger base I nevertheless decided to put him on a much bigger base. Especially when on its disc it looks, in my opinion, better than the original one. The base is one of the ancestral ruins range from tabletop-art .
It may sound strange for a player which owns a lot of space wolves but since i play i wanted to have a thousand sons army. I actually don’t know why i never bought one. Probably there where other stuff which was more important at that time i don’t know.
As Games workshop released the thousand sons again i instantly felt in love with some of the models. So i decided to finish the stuff i bought from forgeworld during our summer holidays and then decide if i still want to paint some of them . So i finished everything , still thought they look cool and then bought these three thousand sons sorcerers. Lovely miniatures if you ask me !
When it comes to painting i have the worse habit that i normally can’t paint stuff the way everything else does. I also wasn’t so amazed by the paint scheme gw chose because i think the gold is too dominant and overused. So when i painted the Cerastus Knight Acheron i used the chance to try out a idea i had how to paint mine. And it really helped. But still the first sorcerer i painted was really hard to paint for me. I probably painted the crown of the head three times trying out different combinations of colors. It was surprisingly hard to me to figure out what color i wanted to paint each piece. Some people use color theories to figure out their colors, and i use it from time to time to, but for me its more about the feeling i have when choosing colors. Some choices just feel right for me. So i needed a long time to get the first sorcerer painted. Some times i was really frustrated because i couldn’t figure out how i wanted him to look. In the end it was IMO definitely worth the effort. Im also a little bit proud about it because i think i was able to push my limit of what im able to paint a little bit higher than before. I love my space wolves and they’re not painted bad but the sons just look better.
