Heldrake in Thousand Sons Chaos Legion Colors

I’ve had my eye on one of these for a long time and I finally got around to making one. I’m pretty happy with the results. If there’s one thing I wish I’d done different, it would be to have added a 3rd airbrush transition so it would be more obvious that the blue is not a solid color.

I didn’t start with the base but you can do it at the start or end of the build. This is a great new technique I tried, and I’m super happy with how it worked. I used some PVA glue to mark where the flight stick is going to attach to the base and then cleaned off the flight stick leaving the glue on the base so that I’d be able to see where I need to keep clear of basing material while I was building the base material up. You can see in the photos below how I worked around the flight stick area.
