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.

Enjoy.

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.

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.

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.

Wow! The chaos sorcerers/zerkers conversions look GREAT! Keep up the good work and I love your colour scheme. I can't really say anything constructive except... KEEP IT UP

as promised. Here's the latest work on the scorcerers

First up: Flaming sword and book

I'm not sure I like this sword this is the 2nd one I tried, the first was just flames up one edge billowing away and it looked a little better. I may just scrap the sword completely and give him a fist full of fire.

2 handed staff


book and force blast hand

not sure if the missile launcher hand as a caster hand is over-used just yet. It's a regular sight but it's still cool.

Flaming hands

I love LOVE! how this turned out. Definitely my favourite one I've made so far.

Staff + Hand of fire
