For the bases is that just plastic netting like what's used for gardening and such?

Yup, it was a big roll of netting used for interior walls.

They are not going to be like that for long however. I am torn between basing them on city ruins or a better looking starship interior.

I shall get some pics taken tomorrow of the new figures I have put together. So far I have a 5 man Raptora squad, Corvidae squad and Pyrae squad along with a termie boarding team!

Progress!

Boarding Terminators

As the years after the heresy progressed, the Thousand Sons found themselves without a home planet. Left to cruise the stars in their huge battle barges, it was not long before the Thousand Sons became adept at ship to ship combat. Heavily armoured troopers would launch toward the enemy craft in boarding ships. Among the elite of these were the boarding terminators. Armed with specialist equipment, earned through their pacts with the Adeptus Mechanicus, these warriors would punch through any opposition they met in their path.

Lightning claws


Heavy Lascutter


Heavy Incinerator




Thunderhammer trooper



Individual fluff will be made once they are cleaned up, converted a bit more and painted!

Raptora Cult squad

The Raptorae are telekines, trained in using their own telekinetic power as a means of both offense and defense. Offensively, Raptorae could direct physical objects at enemies, as well as simply use their powers to directly manipulate enemies; ripping parts of them off. Defensively, they generate 'kine shields', barriers of invisible physical force that blocked attacks. Kine shields were not just generated for personal protection; Raptorae could also project this ability to shield others.

New guys




Athanaen Cult squad

The Athanaeans are telepaths, able to read the thoughts of others as well as transmit their own. Athaneanans complement Corvidae in intelligence operations - while Corvidae interpret what may happen and influence strategy, Athaneans are able to discern current movements and influence immediate tactics. Athaneans also provide secure communication. Battlefield roles involve direct intelligence gathering and transmission.

Squad shot


Sergeant


Troopers








Apothecary with Needle pistol and Chainsword

Despite the Thousand Sons being able to use their powers to heal, apothecaries were still needed on the field of battle, often recruited from the Pavoni cult, these figures were invaluable in the more intense fights.





Next up, Pyrae cult!

Cain



Automatically Appended Next Post:
Pyrae Cult squad

The Pyrae are pyrokinetic, able to both generate and control fire. Their powers can also be used to make them effectively immune to pain or injury caused by fire. They can project the fire they generate in many ways, principally as variations of shields or projectiles. The temperature and lethality of flame can be controlled; as it is warp-powered, Pyrae fire can become exceedingly lethal to not only anything it alights to, but also anything in the immediate vicinity of the flames. Pyrae teachings also seemed to include the ability to control and manipulate automata, such as Robots and even Titans. (Thanks Lexicanum! )

That's all for now!

These bits are on Ebay, at the following link. They have multiple units. You would just have to cut off the blade in invert it to look like the one you are talking about.

Excellent work! I especially like that you didn't go w/ the "traditional" Thousand Sons helms as they would have (as Loyalists) kept up-to-date w/ the most current armor types and would have abandoned those "hey, hit me in the head!" helms long ago.

The conversion work is inspiring and very well done. I'm enjoying this thread a lot so far, subbed!

Thanks for the comments folks!

Here is your New Years eve-eve update!

I got myself some red paint for Christmas so have some guys painted up for you. Pretty pleased with them. I chose a fairly bright, clean paintjob, very 'eavy metal style!

First up, a good old tactical marine!

Well, from what I could see, you are working with a much thicker material. The technique remains the same however, I did indeed cut out a rough shape, then sliced away the remaining edge with a craft knife that I placed so that it followed the angle of the sloped part of the base. Filing would probably leave you with a rougher edge in the end methinks.

You're stuff looks pretty good, but have you seen the alternate history on the Bolter and Chainsword? It's based around if Dorn became warmaster and became corrupted instead, and has loyallist Thousand Sons. You should check it out, maybe for some more inspiration!
