Default "Arise from the dust of ages, my Thousand Sons of Magnus!"... Now with Space Wolves!

Well, after a fairly lengthy hospital stay after a bad broken leg, I finally can get my hands back on some models to convert. One of my only comforts in the hospital (couldn't afford a TV) was the new CSM 'dex, so I swore that if I was ever released, I'd update my Thousand Sons to the new codex...

Said plan took a bit of a detour when I finally arrived home and found out my family had decided to be "helpful" and "organize" my painting area by throwing out close to 20 years of bits (Started playing/building in 1993)... After much rage was heard, I sucked it up and headed to eBay to round up some new bitz and supplies...

My first acquisition was a set of Thousand Sons termies...

...Not TOO badly assembled, but the builder hadn't removed the mold lines. Thankfully, he used a rather weak super glue and the joins came apart rather easily. Oh, and those white blobs on the bases? Hunks of plain old styrofoam glued on, with the termies glued right to them. Scraped the foam off and reglued the poor lads properly...

Several packages of bitz then arrived...

...Kromlech Stygian Heads and Shoulder Pads, Dark Angel Veteran bodies, and Tomb Kings Khopeshes...

Popped the old head off the Sorcerer and added a Kromlech one... also gave him a khopesh...


Now I've begun giving da boyz khopeshes...





And, last but not least, a "character" (not sure WHAT he'll be) I put together with the Dark Angel, Kromlech, and Tomb Kings bitz...

Looking great man, I love the kit bashing!

Now for a bit of fluff: My sorceror lord, Ba'al Zephroth, is one of the Thousand Sons that has stayed loyal to Magnus, and has a reputation for hunting down and eliminating "rogue" Thousand Sons. He has a long-standing grudge against Ahriman after several crushing defeats at his hands. Ba'al Zephroth is known for his ability in giving life to the lifeless; He augments the depleted ranks of his armies with animated statues infused with the life-force of willing thrawls and minions...

Willing? That doesn't sound very fun :/ Looking sweet, are you going for a Pre-Heresy red paint job or post heresy blue?

I can't talk really mine are purple...

Can't wait to see more!

Basically, my sorceror offers immortality. Sounds good, until you find out a statue doesn't have a very active social life...

Post-Heresy blue; One of my earliest 40k memories was seeing the classic mono-pose Thousand Son and thinking "I waaaaant!..."

And the first unit of animated statues, I'll use them as terminators w/lightning claws...

I've been looking at the other Tomb King constructs for other units...

Warsphinx/Necrosphinx: Most likely a Maulerfiend...
Ushabti with bows: Obliterators or Havocs. How to explain how a giant stone arrow could hit like a plasma canon? "It's magic, dude"
Sepulcral Stalkers: Bikers...

I love the kind of blue you are using on your thousand sons. It's much lighter than the one I am using for mine (assuming those are yours in the photo!)...Also, i've always thought the 1ksons dread looks amazing.

And yes - Those Ushabti as terminators are inspired! Those models look amazing. I may have to steal this idea at some point...Or somehow kitbash Ushabti bitz into my tzeentch units. They look friggin sweet.

Look forward to seeing more.
