The Raven roosts atop his pinnacle, looming over the tower below. His mind travels in distant places, playing strange games with stranger creatures. A precious soul is lost in a poor wager, only to be stolen back by trickery. The secret truth of Colaran VI's famed obsidian idols is learned, and then forgotten, because it turned out to be boring. A cult of primitives on a nameless world are instructed to dye their skin blue, because why not?

 

His eyes, at last, open. This is, implicitly, a summons.

 

The Nine - his Nine, anyway - arrive. The Diviner, the Soldier, the Archivist, the Idolater, the Artificier, the Serpent, the Poet, the Thief and the Ancient.

 

"Speak."

 

"The Kingdom comes," says the Diviner, who is first among the nine and speaks for the rest, though several hate him for it.

 

The Kingdom is the dream that binds the Circle. When the shackles of the Imperium are broken and the three idiot gods are put down, what rises from the ashes? A kingdom of knowledge, of power, of infinite potential. Such is the dream of the Crimson Kingdom.  

 

 

The Thousand Sons have been attractive to me since I first came to the hobby well over a decade ago, but it took until the model range update for me to really feel confident about moving into the space. After a great deal of deliberation, I decided to base my color scheme on Magnus's own armor: Silver and Gold with blue flourishes. Thus was the Argent Circle born. 

 

Magnus the Red.

Daemon Prince! This guy has a bit of a story behind him. The initial conversion I did a long while ago, but I wasn't quite happy with him. He sat in gray plastic for nearly two years before I finally made the adjustments he needed - and then painted him in one frantic day. He is the Void Raven.

Second Daemon Prince! Wingless Princes are pretty rare these days.

Scarab Occult! Not a ton going on here. Basic Stuff, but a good testbed for the scheme.

I had the sprue for a Venerable Dreadnought laying around that I hadn't gotten around to building. I threw it into my bitz box and this is what came out, Kherek the Entombed:

I have new paint and primer coming soon, and we'll see where this goes!

Looking forward to see how these turn out. The black basalt bases should be a nice contrast to the silver armor as well.

Took a hard run at the first of the Scarab Occult today. 

 

Not *quite* done with this guy, but I think he gets the general idea across.

Looks fantastic- been pondering non-standard schemes for mine, might have to give something like this a try

Polished off the last of the Scarab Occult. Still some minor work to do (barrels, some texture around the base stones) but overall I'm happy with where they are.

Spent almost all of Sunday afternoon and night obsessively pouring over the DP. Here he is.

Can't polish off the base just yet, but I'm immensely happy with how the model turned out.

Nice work! The daemon prince is a great model, sweet conversion, looks really natural, if that's makes any sense for a big demon bird:)

 

I like your color scheme too, never was a fan of the official gold and blue. And it's great seenin Tzeentch get some love after all this years, just the fact that there are bits available to make that dreadnaught conversion gives me hope.

And now I'm going to take a little break, I think. Gotta recharge a bit.

Raising this old topic from the dead for the sake of the Call. 

 

Here is the Argent Circle as of now:

 

IMG 20180924 191308
 
I've done little with them over the past year, but the call is strong, hence my ambitious vows. I'm going to post WIPs in here, and then push them up into the main post as models complete. So, for starters:
 
What are the Sons without their father?

And Magister-Militant Degenth Hakkar, carefully assembled from an absurd mash of at least three different marks of armor.

I was recently forced to relocate - which has seriously hampered my rate of work - but I'm getting into the swing of things here. What I don't have is access to an even remotely decently-lit photography environment. The bases on these two look much better in person - my phone camera light is blowing out the contrast to an absurd degree.

 

 

Magnus the Red. I'm quite happy with how he turned out.

Daemon Prince, Ozugoth the Herald. He doesn't photograph very well - he's a very 3-d model with the tentacles and everything, and you lose a lot of that in a still image.

I mean, it looks good to me. Looks better now with the larger image :lol:

 

But I know what you mean. Very 3D models tend to not photograph well at all. My Warpsmith Khrogar plays special hell with my phone's camera due to his mechatendrils.
