Secondly, I have a condition I call Hobby ADD, so progress will be a roller-coaster ride of productivity and inaction.
So being a goody, goody Emperor loving loyalist I haven't ever considered collectiong a Chaos army, but have always like the Thousand Sons style. This was bolstered even more by the Horus Heresy books, A Thousand Sons and Prospero Burns. At this stage I was considering a Pre-Heresy army, so I scoured eBay and secured the awesome Sorcerer Lord (read Magnus) mini
Then I discovered the afore-mentioned thread of army310 and the idea of a counts-as Grey Knights army sounded really cool, so I decided to go for it. I then searched eBay to locate the "Egyptian" styled conversion bits and take it from there. This brings us to now. I need the opinions and ideas of all of the great modellers and converters here on the B&C.
Having recieved the Egyptian SM parts, imo, there seems to be alot of "eye" type markings of which I'm unsure about, so I've mocked up two leg/torso varients, the first uses the Egyption torso, TS'd in the usual way, and the second uses GK termi torso's with the rear vents cleaned of. Construction time-wise they were both quick and easy and came together in the same amount of time, with a similar ease of construction. I like both mini's and am having a hard time making a decision.
So here's the GK termi version
...and the Egyption torso version
This guys are pre-GS (besides the spacer-blob in the torso), so the legs will be filled, a belt added, these are purely for making a decision.
(... the astute of you will have caught the GS-filled eyes, as the DH TS's are all soul-bound, they cover the helm lenses)
Opinions? GK or Egyption torso's?
Almost forgot, the obligatory scale photo,
Magnus=>TS Marine=>GW Marine.
