Hail, Exalted Sorcerors of the Legion! Welcome to the Thousand Sons Alternative Paint Scheme Inspiration Thread (TSAPSIT for short).

 

It's a universal truth that Thousand Sons are among the hardest 40k armies to paint, mainly due to the large amounts of trim involved, difficulty in getting a nice yellow over blue and other such considerations. While not technically difficuly, they are time consuming which leads to all kinds of motivational problems.

 

This thread is intended to act as a resource for people to share any alternate/unconventional Thousand Sons/Rubric Marine colour schemes that they come across with the aim of showing people that collecting Thousand Sons doesn't have to be painful. Whilst Rubrics themselves are undying golems of Tzeentch, the God of Change surely can cause a little variation in colour among his followers. Similarly, Rubrics whose fickle masters have changed allegiance over their 10,000 year exile might have had their armour repainted. 

 

Please post any cool schemes you've seen in this thread [with a link to the source], and I'll add them to the list so people can find them, and I'll group loosely accoring to main colour themes. Warband names would also be great if possible!

 

I've found a few already, which I'll lead with, but I'm looking forward to what you guys use for inspiration!
