Hi there!

This October I started out my Thousand Sons army with help from a good friend.
I've started out with 2 times 10 man tactical squad and a HQ of some sort.

 

I went with the mark IV from BoC for my marines and some bits from here and there.
The look I was going with was the Tizcan Ruby with white shoulderlines and gold and steel/brass details.
They're supposed to be straight out of the burning of prospero, with there bases and weathering(some day)
 

The HQ my friend made for me and he also gave me the 20 marines i needed to start.
I then ordered some achean shoulders and heads for my TS, and gave myself the painting challenge for the first 10 this October.
Afterwards the next ten were set for November.
But I finished some time before December so here they all are.

What I'm ordering this December:
1 Sicarian Venator
1 Leviathan
1 Land Speeder Javeling with Las guns
5 Tartaros Pattern Terminators

What I have so far:
HQ of some sort
1 x 10 Tactical Squad
1 x 10 Tactical Squad

Looking really good! Not usually a fan of the white shoulder trims but you've done it well and kept them looking like Thousand Sons

Can't wait to see more

Thanks! It's always nice to do something with the paint scheme that is liked even though it's out of the persons taste :D!

I also have to mention that the hero with the sword is made by my friend "Brother Pheidias".
My plans for the upcomming holidays are paint, paint and paint till I drop.

Looking good! I think MkIV definitely fits the Thousand Sons more than MKIII.

Looking forward to seeing more.

I completely agree, the achean parts are the best combi in my opinion.

Thank you! I feel very flattered, since it's the first army I've been making a serious project out off.
When my next shipment comes in it's going to take on a more aggressive look!

Now that payday is comming up I've chosen to beef up my order from FW.
I've made the plan of ordering these items this december:
1 Praetor pack

1 Leviathan with grav cannon and siege claw
1 Sicarian Venator
1 Javelin with Las Cannons
5 Tartaros pattern termies

Maybe a pack of either achaen or mark IV TS heads for the termies. I also considered ordering the new EC spears for my tartaros, any ideas please hit me up!

Then with the free shipping voucher from FW I'll be ordering the 31st of January, when I get paid again, I'll be getting the last piece for now
1 Spartan Assault Tank

5 Tartaros termies

Before you order Tartaros Terminators from Forge World, you could always pick up the cheaper Burning of Prospero Tartaros Set on eBay, or better yet, have you seen the new Scarab Occult 40k release?
This kit on its own (or mixed with the more plain 30k Tartaros plastics) would look fantastic!!

They would look fantastic in your 30k scheme!! The MKIV marines are great so I'm sure this would translate nicely over to the Scarab Occult.

I've seen the Prospero tartaros, and I'm not sure they would work with my conversions.
I would rather go for the FW because of the simple but detailed version compaired to the 40k Scarabs which are way to flashy for the look I'm going for. Also they're just as expensive!
And I'm going for a almost no egyption or scarab look in general, so I'm not much for spending a lot of money for some flashy termies, which I considered not getting at all :P

Ah, fair enough. Just thought I would mention it just in case.
Either way, I'm sure you'll do them justice. Like I said before, your first few finished models are fantastic, looking forward to seeing what you do with your FW order :) 👍🏻

Thank you so much! It's always nice to be assured that you're updated on the new models :)
And I really appreciate the support! I've been blown away by the interrest and help with my army since i started posting!

Extremely well done

Thank you! Looking forward to my expansion.

I've decided to order the Emperors Children spears which are comming out the 2nd of December, for my terminators. And I decided to go with the mark IV TS heads for them.
The idea is to make a certain difference to them individually, and as a unit with the spears.

Looking forward to seeing your order painted up.

 

I'm inclined to agree with you on the 40k TS stuff- seems to be a little overwhelming for 30k, and while beautiful, doesn't fit with the lore of the XV (so far as I know) during the Great Crusade.

I've always seen them as non flashy veterans, with a more greek inspired theme than egyptian in pre heresy.

That would be awesome, and just in my taste!
But the you have to cross the pond first :)

That would be a really cool premise to a alt campaign though, and both forces would look great on the table together.

 

Although with World Eaters involved, I don't think "Burning" of Prospero really cuts it anymore. msn-wink.gif

I'm a huge fan of the metallic red, you've done a good job.

I like the idea of each troop being individual, looking

forward to seeing your reinforcements.

Here's a little update! I recieved my order in the afternoon yesterday, and I was amazed of the wonderful quality of the parts!
Now about one day later, all parts are cleaned and my Venator, Leviathan and Javeling is ready for spraying.
I'm aiming for putting the terminators together tommorrow, and posting pictures of it all before the spraying.
 

Here's a little teaser of the things in progress

The Javelins certainly are a treat to put together- did you get the las or cyclone versions?

 

Also, what's your plan for their bases? They're a little unstable otherwise- the one (and only) gripe I have about the javelin set.

I preferred to put together the Venator, but the Javelin is cool too!

My plan is to pin the back of it to some debri, so it gets good and heavy, so I won't have any wobbly problems

Here's everything before spraying and greenstuff work.
I chose to show some squads and bigger models, instead of 3-4 shots of every minature
