Flamers of Tzeentch

I've been keeping my Tzeentch army on the back burner for a while. But the combination of my First Founding project coming to an end, the new allies rules for Warhammer 40,000, and the timely release of some new models, now was a good time to continue with it.
The new daemon wave, and the new allies rules have allowed me to re-imagine the way my Thousand Sons army will work. For one thing, I now have more daemons than Chaos Marines. For another, a Thousand Sons or Chaos Marines release appears to not be coming until October at the earliest (if the rumormongers are to be believed).
The first unit I chose to build and paint from the new wave was the Flamers. This was a difficult group of models to paint. For one thing, they all have mouths all over the place with tiny fangs that were hard to paint. I also picked up three new paint pots to do the blue: Macragge Blue, Alaitoc Blue and Hoeth Blue. Of which I did layers in that order.
Based on feedback I got from a previous post, I spent some time looking at pictures of fire trying to decide which way to layer the colors. I saw examples both ways, and ultimately decided to go red to white, rather than the reverse as had been suggested in that previous post.

  1. Theses look good, the contrast between the skin and flames make the models quite striking.
