I took the Thousand Sons to Open War this weekend and they were well received by players and did surprising well given their lacking numbers and mobility. The night before the tournament I completed a little detail Iíd be working on that week.

Iíll say this; lighter colours are hard to blend, so I used the space wolf paint tutorial from a previous white dwarf (not mine of course) and painted his armour using painted highlights instead. I made sure to get the pre-heresy armour just right. I added the tutelary to the picture because they go together very well.

Now as some of you might know GW disapproves of my major use of non-gw parts on my terminators at GW events which makes sense, so I needed some suitable alternatives for Warhammer World events. It was originally going to be the robots but then Forgeworld released their pre-heresy terminators and I wanted a squad to convert and here they are...

Aside from the same weapon conversions of my previous terminators I added details such as the jewel scarab and horse hair plume to make them look similar to the terminators featured in this piece of artwork with the Primarch.

You can see a detailed image of a single terminator here > [link]

I might make another squad for larger GW events and to have the option of fielding 25 Grey Knight Terminators.

So which terminator variant do you like these ones or my robed conversions? [link]

It has taken a long time but I finally completed my Prospero Spire Guardís heavy weapon teams that will be fielded as a henchmen squad with 6 warriors with boltguns, 3 plasma cannons servitors and my Hidden One Agent Inquisitor. I might be making some alternative weapons for the ĎFirestormsí turrets most likely a missile launcher in case I wish to field them as Imperial Guard allies instead of henchmen.

3 more to go and the interceptors will be completed. I decided to make the thunder hammer into a staff like weapon as the original looked too brutish for a thousand son in power armour. The Omen class bolters are also coming out well.

Now if I can only get 3 more terminators and the Hidden One agent that is my Vindicare assassin done by the end of the month Iíll be set to make my deadline. Still dreading painting the white robes as I had enough trouble painting the small ones on these guys but I am improving.

Here they are at long last, my scarab occult terminators. I started work on them in September last year with each pair taking several evenings to paint, sadly they didnít really go anywhere for a while as the robes werenít completed till this month after I had given up on trying to paint white before the final details such as the grenades, pouches and scripture!

I had planned to give them all symbols on the trim of the robes like the one of the left but dirt covered most of it up so it seemed a waste of time, instead I painted the symbols that ĎSkitsí provided on the each of the cloths attached to the belt of each warrior.

Iíll upload the 2nd squad at a later date when I get a better quality photo of them, Iíll also be uploading more detailed pictures of certain squad members so feel free to suggest a model youíd like a better look at.

I spent the last 3 days before the tournament painting up little or ĎMini Magnusí as he is now called and I was unsure about the model afterwards as something felt off about the model.

I discussed it at the tournament with a few players and 1 hit the nail on the head; the gold! In small amounts it looks good but for due to the 2 washes and dry brushing required to pick out the details it looks very bland, which is bad given he the HQ in an army of colourful and well painted models.
Also Magnus does have red skin he has tanned bronze like skin and getting that the right tone was a nightmare as was the hair.

Overall Iíll feel the modelís a bit of a let down so Iíll be replacing him soon with a Thousand sons captain similar in appearance to pre-heresy Ahriman from the art books to use as my grand master or Librarian, Mini Magnus will then be stored and brought out when I want to field Draigo and a paladin wing.

I swiftly made plans to make a new commander model soon after the completion of Mini-Magnus not just because his dull contrast to the basic troops but also because I couldnĎt use him in those generous GW stores that allowed me to use my terminators.

So I give you my Pyrae Commander, I had to change the robes because I after 3 attempts the other one was a mess. But I think theyíre a great way to make him stand out of the army as the commander. I plan to place a Space Wolf shield on the base thatís been burned through with a heat beam when I get the time.

As for now itís back to the spire guard, also the plasma cannon squad worked wonders yesterday in their first game better than 1 Vindicare for sure.

I'll be attending Operation Protineus at Warhammer World this weekend which is a Kill Team Tournament and I've have chosen to field a unit of Cataphract Robots which were used by the Pyrae Cult during the Great Crusade.

However because this is a Kill Team I can't just have robots so I need someone to lead them and who better than a Techmarine. I decided not to give him a servo hardness as he will never be used as a techmarine, he will be either another wolf guard terminator or a rune priest with Divination to represent him increasing the robot's effectiveness and to fill out the allied HQ slot.

He'll also have the FNP rule to help him survive the firepower Kill Team leaders are likely to attract.

Since Iím using the henchmen squads for the Prospero Spire Guard I need to field Inquisitor Coteaz so Iíve converted the finecast Inquisitor to represent him as a general. First he was holding the hammer in his left hand which looked silly given how much it likely weights so I changed it to the other hand and gave him a heroic like pose with the hammer facing down, that was till I got this comment...

". . . he ends up looking like he's trying heroically . . . to play croquet."

After which I changed the pose immediately! I also later added in a steel scorpion, another conversion from my previous Machine Cult army to represent his cyber eagle or even a servo skull if I ever choose to use one.

Should I get the time and money I will likely add some more spire guard units to the army using guard allies which will include 1 of each of the following...

Command Squad; simple enough.
Penal Legion ; Need a troop choice but can't have veterans with poorer weapons than the basic troops and I'm not painting up an infantry platoon! Not sure how to convert them at the moment, most likely as a team of specialist spire guard?
Vendetta Gunship; Likely using the conversion concept I came up with for the Prospero disc speeder.
Leman Russ Executioner; Using the FW Deimos Pattern plasma predator to represent it.

Of course they'll have to wait as my next focus for this project will be the Cybernetica units.
