A good looking start to a revitalised project :)

If I were you, I'd give a quick intro to explain what this DIY is about - the DIY's dustjacket if you will.

Some additional info like Allegiance and Appearance would be nice (ie, do they actually follow Tzeentch? Do they wear the general Thousand Sons blue and gold, the ancient Prosperine Red and Ivory, or something else?) - these should be presented in the form of bulletpoints, alongside their master's name if you want (and other info you find important for a quick overview)

Since you mentioned that you have or are developping a Chapter and a Sector, then give a link to the relevant Bolter and Chainsword threads where you present them - I don't think it's necessary to go into too much depth here, as this thread is concerned with your warband, but a link to the article will help a newcomer to navigate your different creations :)

Where does the "Tusmah" part of their name come from? Where do the non-Thousand Sons members of the warband come from, how did they join, what state are they in (ie, are they mutated, Rubricae, etc. ?)

 

If they are indeed followers of Tzeentch (as I suspect they are considering their Legion and the ally you present), then here's a question to help get some ideas in motion (this isn't a trap or a concern as such, more a though experiment):

"If Tzeentch is the god of Change, and your Warband is essentially harkening back to the 'good old days', then how do they reconcile the two seemingly opposing motivations?"

Lord Thorn, i just want to thank you for your time spent on this. At the time of your comment i was 95% done with 40k as a game and had little to no interest pursuing this and my other Index works.
But as feelings wane and change so too have my feelings with 40k and i seem to be back for the forseable future and so i wish to repay your investment with some of my own in the form of the following response:

Details to be added for sure!

I might do this in the future but i wasnt intending on linking the two armies or the articles to be honest.

Where does the "Tusmah" part of their name come from?


IRL: i was looking for an egyptian link to this army without going the god route and came up with the phonetic translation of the number 9 in arab:Tusmah.
IC: i really dont know why they would have taken this name over any other...numerology was a theme i was playing with a while back but i believe to have since then scrapped it. Which is a shame because i really was strong in wanting it as a part of the thrallband but couldnt quite fit it in.

Where do the non-Thousand Sons members of the warband come from, how did they join, what state are they in (ie, are they mutated, Rubricae, etc. ?)


I might have to review this as i believe the initial idea was just to have thousand sons but the aspiring sorcerors could use some fleshing out as non thousand sons members...

If they are indeed followers of Tzeentch (as I suspect they are considering their Legion and the ally you present), then here's a question to help get some ideas in motion (this isn't a trap or a concern as such, more a though experiment):
"If Tzeentch is the god of Change, and your Warband is essentially harkening back to the 'good old days', then how do they reconcile the two seemingly opposing motivations?"


I frankly dont know. Although this does poke a giant hole in the thrallband's motivations...it is a good thought experiment.
I always saw Tzeentch as a God promoting change, not necessarily progress. So to change a planet a sector or even a being would be something he would bless and promote. As to what happens after it has been changed...more change obviously! Into what or how is beyond me at this point.
What say you?

I don't see it as an issue, changing back is still change from the current right? msn-wink.gif That and Tzeentch may have some labyrinthine plan for those who try, or maybe just the trying itself (perhaps made never to succeed...) is what he likes? Plus I think that there's a lot to work with on (original) traitor forces and their thoughts on the old days and approaches, and I don't think that any of the Chaos gods are that one dimensional - even Khorne :P

 

I like what you have, the Rubric is such a big part of the Sons I don't think you can avoid it being a major part of any DIY such that it'd probably be weird if you didn't thumbsup.gif

so i decided to look into the article itself that I keep on my google drive and found this:

 

+Magister+

Okpara Nebnefer

Magister Nebnefer’s legionnary past has been lost to the warp and become irrelevant after ten thousand years of inactivity at his father’s side. What he is is a master of a burgeoning Thrallband and an expert of Daemon Mancipium. He has become so good at this that he has even successfully entrapped mutated Thralls, once brothers of his, into transport vehicles and tanks to do his bidding on the field of battle.

He is the visionary that has led these inactive souls free of uncaring fathers, selfish brothers and life taking bureaucracy.

+Thralls+

Psamtic Tosertosis[Na’ardisha’an’ah, Maulerfiend Pattern Daemon Engine]

Thrall Tosertosis was a student of Okpara Nebnefer’s back on Prospero and has been as close as his shadow ever since. The psyker has learned all the magister knows concerning Daemon Mancipium which he pair to his own considerable precognitive powers. This fact and the relationship he holds with Nebnefer allows many to associate both men to the old Corvidae Cult, although neither associates with it or attaches any importance to that designation.

Na’ardisha’an’ah(shortened to Na) is a daemon of slaanesh trapped within the confines of a maulerfiend pattern daemon engine. She was known to many as the Final Satisfaction, the Eternal Sigh and the Many Tongued Desire, amongst many other names of hatred and worship. Tosertosis summoned her on Sortiarius under the tutelage of his master. Nebnefer had suggested a daemon of slaanesh as, he explained, they were as easy to manipulate as daemons of Khorne but posed less of a risk to their bodies and material possessions. The Eternal Sigh now whispers inumerable pleasures to her targets but saves the most violent and obscene for Thrall Tosertosis’ own ears, promises of what she will do to him in this world and the next should she ever escape his grasp.

 

Ishaq Zahur[Anos’hiru’ivanalak, Maulerfiend Pattern Daemon Engine]

Ishaq Zahur is a proud member of the Pavoni Cult. His affection for the old cult is so great that he takes a personal offense to any who do not mention him as “of the Pavoni” when introducing him. His mastery of the biological is seen on the battlefield as he assists Thrall Tosertosis with the enhancement of the daemon engines employed by the Thrallband. Off the field of battle, Thrall Zahur is the man of many faces, using his powers to modify his skeletal structure and appearance to take on any personality or appearance he so chooses. He does this with such ease that no Thousand Son could identify his original facial features even if he ever let them see it.

Anos’hiru’ivanalak(shortened to Anos) is a daemon of Khorne residing in a maulerfiend pattern daemon engine. Unlike his Slaaneshi counterpart, Anos is quite pleased to be spilling blood for the blood god in this new form and only seeks his grand reward from his god whenever he is freed to go before him and the skull throne.

+Aspirants+

Nassot Sutekh[4 Scarab Occult Terminators]

Nassot Sutekh is first among Thrallband Tusmah’s aspirants and the only Thousand Son among them. When Nebnefer, Tosertosis and Zahur were making their dash for a brighter future, Sutekh volunteered himself and the rubrics in his command. Not a grand psyker or schemer, he remains first among aspirants as the one to show newly acquired sorcerers how to command the rubrics. He keeps the Scarab Occult to himself as they are both precious and valuable. Precious as he knew them well before the rubric, valuable as only he knows their names and thus only he can use these weapons against his foes.

 

Najja Harimotep[9 Rubricae]

 

Mensah Rasebek[9 Rubricae]

+Allies+

Vispa'th’a'urvo'ashta’i, Herald of Tzeentch and her Legion of Horrors

Vispa'th’a'urvo'ashta’i(shortened to Vispa) is a daemon of Tzeentch very close to Magister Nebnefer. Having been his tutelary on Prosopero, Vispa has been present at every major event of Nebnefer’s career. Although no longer as close an ally as when she was his tutelary, she still remains close to him as an aid and an advisor. Vispa speaks on behalf of the changer of ways in the hopes of keeping the Thrallband in his good graces and positioning herself for ideal moves in the great game that he watches and plays. Although not currently a concern, Vispa’s true name is known to the Magister only, making her currently his underling but having been an asset in the past, he allows her to operate freely out of a daemon engine. A fate he often reminds her of should she fail him.

 

Question for you guys:

 

First and foremost: Thoughts?

 

Secondly, I'm thinking of renaming my two other aspirants and making them non-TS. Would any of you have Space Marine Chapters to suggest to take these "renegades" from? That would help with the naming as I would theme their names based on the Chapter they used to belong to.

 

-DR

They just need pictures now ;) I think a chapter with a strong psychic approach could be good, but the opposite is also true - maybe someone who didn't feel appreciated for his talents...

It depends what you're trying to go for I suppose? A safer bet would be a chapter that has had notable traitor elements or an already renegade chapter, but anything outside of the original legions should be fine. Loyalist ones that is; might be fun to steal a Black Legion sorcerer or something! A suitable justification could cover anything really, so you can go to town if you want tongue.png Alternatively you can pick the chapter and come up with justifications later, not everything has to be done at once after all smile.png

And I agree with WF, you can leave some parts unknown :)
