My Grey Knights DreadKnight, the Bane of Tzeentch. He has slain many hundreds of the Thousand Sons, and has become so entrenched in their gore it has been fused to the very armor of the Dreadknight.

Hope you all enjoy! It was a fun conversion and I re-learned why I don't like using GS. The conversion parts are mostly from a TK Sphinx, you'll recognize the head and pieces of the Howdah.

I'm going to have to drop out guys. I'm posting the reason in my weekly paint thread and just wanted to let you know I really wanted to do this one..but the Universe bit me in the behind.

I also have to drop out, I really wanted to do it but I can't do hobbying right now due to the pile up of homework, Internship driving school, job, and the ever so fun college courses. Then the added bonus of FASFA and FERPA deadlines with Scholarships forms and an Eagle Scout Project. life is awesome right now :S

I'm not backing out and I've barely started. I'll probably build it the night before like a mad scientist.

Dez, do you ever think you may have a slight problem with procrastination?

I think he has the same problem I do with filling the plate too full. Portion control is my issue :)

Nappen has it. I'm also pretty ADD about projects. Last night I built most of a Valkyrie and prepped an Infantry Squad for primer. My daughter also has the week off from school and it was her birthday, so I've been spending time with her ;)

I also do my best work under pressure ;)

Procrastinating hard on this project. Learned quite a bit from the December MotM, trying to up the ante this time.

Looking good, that thing looks menacing! Nice work getting that dynamic feel with the base.

What would happen if you didn't procrastinate?

I'd join in, but there is no way I'm going to be able to paint him up in time, assuming I get the greenstuff to finish sculpting him.
