I was thinking about combi conversions for the phobos bolters but that one didn't occur to me. Simple and very effective.

You've gotta make some with box clips now ;)

THEY ARE THE SONS OF RUSS OF COURSE THEY ARE THE BEST TROOPS IN THE GAME!!!!!

For my own part, I come down on the side of courage. For courage can sometimes make a virtue of inexperience. I myself have commanded Imperial Guard troops whose probitor units have achieved great things, because they were too inexperienced to realise that their goal was impossible."

Time for an Update.

Having re-read DH TS, I took note of something I'd previously overlooked. Once the TS's had been soul-bound, the Emperor assigned some Custodes to "keep an eye on" Magnus and his sons. This got me to thinking, what if, due to the heresy, that order was never recinded?

So along this vein of thought I present to you a WIP Custode on Jetbike, yep, that's right jetbike!!!

So my base model was the SF Roman Centurion from Scibor Monstrous Miniatures

Posted Image

I then cut through the torso below the belt, then cut a wedge, the full height, out of the middle of the legs getting me to this stage:

I've also kitbashed a really cool Custode halbred, inspired by a pic in the Horus Heresy art books

Posted Image

All it needs is to have the barrels reattached.

Next on the hit-list is to resculpt robed thighs, followed by working out how in the hell I'm gunna get him to hold the handle bar.

I have enough jetbikes and SF Romans to make a full squad of 5 jetbike mounted Custodes, wish me luck.

As usual, all C&C welcome, Cheers

Awesome work. Really liking the true scaling.

You could do a pose where the jetbike is stopped or have him controlling it with his legs.

Ooh! This is nice! I have been toying with the idea of some Dornian Heresy Thousand Sons myself, but they haven't got past the bitz tacked together stage! Loads of ideas here. :HQ:

you should use the Anubis looking termie armor, and make a pre-H Termi T'sons Chaplain. Since in Egyptian myht Anubis is the god of the dead.

I love how GW creates the Warp Talon to be some sort of super-powered Raptor, and instead it's become the king-of-all-kitbashes.

Awesome stuff so far. I've always wanted to do up a 1ksons squad or two, just for kicks. I'm lovin' the egyptian themed heads. I think I've seen some different ones somewhere else as well... if I find them I'll make a post for you.

[edit]puppetswar has some. Not sure if they'll fit, but they're the same theme.

Hey guys, just throwing this out there- maybe we could get some hellmarines in the new codex? They are like regular CSM but for +25 points they get the fleet USR.
:P
Hellmarines are a new cult unit that come with a Hellmark that gives them Hellfleet and Hellhammer of Wrath. If one of your HQs is Chaos Lord Helldark the Hellish, they count as scoring troops.
