Looking good, will be keeping an eye on this project as it gets closer to finishing.
If it works out, I'll have to find a lot of money somewhere so that I can do a whole army of true scales :lol:
As a little addendum, I think it may be a good idea if I mentioned what parts have gone into him.
The legs and chest plate are from the plastic Chaos Lord, as is the front of the helmet (while the rest of the helmet is obviously a Thousand Son head). The back of the chest is from a Chaos Space Marine (specifically a spare one from the same TS who donated his head) as is the plastic part of the backpack, while the metal part of the backpack is a Sorcerer's.
His legs were a bit of a pain. Originally I was planning on leaving them as is, but once I actually saw the componants in the plastic, decided it would look a bit too much like he was squatting. This lead to removing and repositioning the left leg, the idea being to have the right one left as is so that he could be stepping up onto something, however in the dry run stage this still looked a bit off, so I had to remover and reposition the right leg slightly so that he would be leaning forwards slightly as opposed to looking like he was falling backwards.
Currently I'm in two minds on what arms to use. At the moment it's a toss up beween the plastic terminator arms from the Lord set and a spare set of metal Thousand Son's arms. I'm currently leaning slightly towards the TS arms, as the sculpt of the left one will allow me to put the book from the Lord set in it to make it look like he's reading from it.
