Thousand Sons Blog: Latest Update 2/10
So, I'm starting work a new 40k army for an upcoming progressive campaign.

The rules simply being: Paint and Play something you've never done before.

After much thought and deliberation I settled for Chaos Space Marines. They strike me as having the greatest potential for fun and bonkers conversion ideas.

What should in theory follow will be a project log that follows the army as it grows from 500 to 1250 over the campaign, to 3000 as my final goal.

I started painting last week and this is the early stage stuff I have so far.

The plan is to paint the entire army without the use of metallic paint which should force my hand at trying NMM for once.


Chaos Marine Squad:
and closer look

Still have a lot of work to do on these guys. Need to bore out the gun barrels, do the bone sections and decide how the hell I want to base the the army.

Their Rhino:

Bonus points if you recognise the symbol on the top hatch.

And a quick peek at the very very very beginnings of my Scorcerers. Being Thousand Sons themed, I need a boat load of these. I'm playing with the idea of making a scorcerer unit as a zerker unit. All hopped on warptime frenzied out psykers.

Amazing work so far.

I especially like the floating Sorcerers.

Great work, I really love the colour scheme.

Wow they look awesome, you should be proud. Can't wait to see more mate :biggrin:

Mate, i love the colour scheme and I'm glad someone else has used the DA veterans as sorcerers.

Nice conversions, +rep

While they do indeed look awesome, I am not sure that they could be called Tsons with the quartered scheme. That said, I am looking forward to seeing more.

Cheers for the feedback so far guys.

I did some more green stuff work on the Scorcerers last night / this morning, not happy with one of them so he'll need to be redone.

Will post some more pics when I finish work tonight.

These are really cool, i've used DA vetran models for my sorcerors as well though mine don't float and are the old metal models. I've never liked the whole "we're egyptian based" thing the TS boxes have going. I really like the colours, it's nice to see some vibrant csm's most seem to be very dark and moody. I'd agree that you should probabley change their name...i don't think you can get away with claiming a colourscheme this unique belongs to an existing army.

Maybe something like tyhe Brotherhood of Change or some such.

Oh btw zombie hands make awesome spellcaster hands as they are usually grasping/casting.
