Recently while perusing the W.I.P Forums, I came across Kizzdougs' excellent log, and his CSM to Sons of Horus conversion. So, as is the case with hobby butterfly syndrome I decided to give it a whirl. I have some CSM stuff, and some MkIV stuff so I figured I'd give it a whirl. the results are as follows:

Now, he's obviously a Traitor late in the Heresy. But the question is which legion does he hail from? I can see him as a Son of Horus, a Word Bearer, or maybe a Night Lord. What do my brothers in the Age of Darkness think? I'm thinking he will be the first in a small Zone Mortalis force, at least for now. We'll see. 

 

Thanks in advance for any comments!

put a knife on his belt and i'd give you night lords, but as is i'd say SoH, Iron warriors (that facemask screams industrial) or word bearers if you gave him some tattoos

Given the fact he has an actual eye of hours on his knee, its say the SoH.

This.

Also he looks very much brutal and straight in your face. Which I very much associate with soh.

I’m definitely leaning towards Sons of Horus for sake of ease with the kits I have. The Eye marking could just be a sign of being allied to the Warmaster or fighting alongside the Sons. I will be honest I hadn’t given it much thought when throwing him together.

The head is definitely swappable. I am currently lacking in MkIV helmets somehow. So, bare heads until I can order some stuff.

World Eaters or Sons of Horus, I'd say.

Alright, I've settled on the Sons of Horus! Going to order some things, get some paint, and get cracking. As soon as I put paint to mini I will be changing the thread title, etc. Thanks guys!

I know you’ve just said you’re settled but the eye of Horus could link well with an outcast sons force. They could be a force Horus has co-opted to be like an anti-knights errant who serve him personally, hence the eye.

An interesting thought, that. I know there were White Scars and Space Wolves who wanted to side with Horus, maybe a force of dudes from Loyal legions that felt the proper path was alongside Horus. Interesting. Could use Blackshields rules...the wheels turn.

And another vote for SoH. Looking good though regardless.

So, I got an airbrush. So I figured I'd give pre-shading a shot. Here are the results:

May have gone a bit heavy handed with the white, but we'll see when I get some color on there!

 

EDIT!!!

+++++

Threw some paint on his head...happy with most things save for the eyes. Those Emperor-Damned things are impossible. More practice!

Great start with the marine! I think you should go for a heavier contrast in your pre-shade, airbrush in black in the shadows again. Great work!

Excellent work so far! The 40k universe is fit for plunder especially for less loyal legions! Keep us updated brother!

Lupercal!
