A simple kitbash, these were made using the normal plastic csm kit as well as Anubis heads and Sorcerer shoulder guards from Puppetswar. A project for my brother, they've turned out pretty well and should paint up nicely.





I haven't done the sorcerer yet, but I figure I can get parts for him out of the normal kit itself. The Tzeentch champion head and the Tzeentch shoulder guard should go with the Sorcerer shoulder guard well enough and will distinguish him from the jackal headed members of his squad.

Those look pretty good.

I think they'd work better with more additional parts. Just the head and shoulder seems insufficient.

i second that. some nice scrolls and tzeentch symbols might go a long way into "thousand sonning" those marines.

I like it, I'm a fan of the TS but not a fan of the helmets on the rubric marine kits. How are you planning on painting these; in the traditional blue and gold/yellow or you thinking something else? Looking forward to seeing more :)

Sorry I missed this comment before. Chances are they'll be painted in the colours of the Thousand Sons for the sake of theme and simplicity, but I do fully intend to add my own flair to it. The problem my brother and I both have though is a short attention span for these projects, and as such we both tend to jump from one interest to the next and back again later on.

I actually do feel keen to do some painting on these guys soon though, so I'll see him about getting one or both of the squads I've built and working out a scheme. :good:

Caledor Sky, then a drybrush of Temple Guard Blue. The parts that will be gold I am first painting silver since the whole thing will be given a Sepia shade.

Well it isn't DaVinci but these are coming up pretty well.



The silver was given two shades of Sepia to deepen the gold, and the blue armour was left with one. It gave it pretty much the exact colour I was after. :good:
