Once of the Pavoni Cult, Akhenaten began a pilgrimage across the stars after Ahriman's grand spell. Even with only a modest band of Rubrics at his command he cuts his way through the galaxy as he sees fit - and frequently through the fabric of space in doing so. A cryptic man of few words he relentlessly pursues his goal of knowledge and power at any cost. Any who stand in his way soon become dust...

 

Aharon once served with Akhenaten in the same Fellowship, and as a close and trusted ally followed him steadfastly into the arms of Tzeentch. Formerly a member of the Raptora Cult his chief motivation is to achieve such mastery over telekinesis that none can obstruct him. Any witnessing the brutality and power of the Exalted's sorcerous might are under no illusions he will achieve his goal sooner or later, for such raw might can only be with Tzeentch's blessing. His favourite trick is to use his mastery of telekinesis to rend the ground itself, his foe's final moments before being crushed spent in horror and awe.

 

Together they form a terrible duo, their vying for greater glory and service to their patron god and Primarch pushing them ever onwards. Worlds and armies burn before them, only for their marching Rubricae to vanish once more into the warp to find the next part of the labyrinthine plan set in motion millennia ago...

 

 

Just in time for the Chapter Approved point adjustments, I finally start my journey proper biggrin.png It starts small but is enough for a Patrol detachment alongside my Slaaneshi Marines tomorrow so not having a clue what I'm doing aside hopefully they do Tzeentch proud! As part of my cunning Tzeentchian plan almost all of my Thousand Sons kits are from swaps... the god of change should surely approve and influence the dice accordingly msn-wink.gif

 

Here's the first squad:

Plus Aharon:

I'll need to get better pictures, since they're hitting the table tomorrow that seems like a sensible time to try msn-wink.gif

I like that squad. That would also be an awesome colour scheme for pre heresy Emperor's Children. Got a recipe? Did you start with gold?

Thanks guys, it's been a long time coming but good to get going smile.png The scheme is straight forward, and is basically Duncan's approach. Retributor Gold spray, wash with Reikland Fleshshade and highlight with Sigmarite. The purple is Naggaroth Night with a good Drakenhof Nightshade wash. It gives a good colour I like, seems to swap between looking a purple or a dark blue (which should please Tzeentch).

 

I'll try and be good and focus on more Rubrics next, but I expect my box of Scarab Occult will barge their way up the list sooner or later tongue.png

They got their first battle in, full batrep is here thumbsup.gif They did ok in a bad situation, but as a small Patrol addition I wasn't expecting a great deal. Psychic powers didn't achieve much unfortunately, it doesn't help with Shadow of the Warp to contend with sad.png Even so Doom Bolt seems really expensive, it looked useful but it's so hard to cast it's a red herring confused.gif At the least a good innings with denying powers so they made an impact there, I'm sure with more models and investment they'll do much more in the future biggrin.png

 

My horde of Tzeentchian dice rolled quite well too so perhaps there is method in my madness after all laugh.png With the impending point adjustments from CA2018 I feel that there are good times ahead for Rubrics... even if that means I have to paint a few more tongue.png

A great start to a new army - they look fantastic! I see you are decided on your next TS project but I will cast in my vote for some Scarab Occult Terminators if you change your mind. They look amazing :D

They'll be my first unit after the bread and butter I have no doubt, but I usually make the mistake of running off to paint units I want and then realise I can't field them properly :lol: I could stick to a Patrol detachment still but then I'd be looking at a lot of points :P I've got my old Aspiring Sorcerer cleaned up so I'm ready to start on the second Rubric squad, maybe once I have a couple of 5 model squads I can see what else takes my fancy...

Been a very long 2019 so far, but I did get to make some hobby progress:

 

gallery_30308_15068_33888.jpg

 

A fresh Rubric squad ready for paint smile.png There's a flamer and SRC as I need the latter for my KT (I had completely forgotten it was in there), but I do have the second test model almost done who can fill in until I get a 10 man squad. The Aspiring Sorcerer has a new front chest plate from the Exalted box as his original one didn't survive the swim but it didn't take too much modification to fit, and will help keep them looking a bit different so all's well that ends well :D

 

Not sure when I can get some painting in, so it'll probably be a case of the odd colour here and there when I can. No rest for the wicked it seems!
