UNSTOPPABLE FORCE!
Back when I started this project I had the idea for a Dreadknight proxy of a Thousand Sons sorcerer with a large Tutelary unleashing the full force of his psychic powers. Because in the Horus Heresy novels when a Thousand Sons sorcerer lets lose his full powers whole squads of enemies are killed with ease often crushed or burnt and unable to do them any real damage in return. The idea for this conversion came from an Anime Series where a character could summon a gigantic, humanoid being that surrounds him.



Recently I've been tweaking with my Dreadknight conversion and with most of the parts finally here I'm likely to begin assembly sometime this week. However it maybe sometime before the model is completed so here is a blu-taced rough version.

The commander on the base will be converted up similar to the first Thousand Sons commander I made but this time in Power Armour and made with all GW parts. The Dreadknight tutelary is armed with a shield using the tzeentch disc and a sword from the daemon prince, I would have loved for it to have been the balrog's flame sword to match the one the commander will wield but cheap plastic Balrogs or at least the sword is impossible to find. I may alter the dreadknight's helmet to match the commander's as if he is a large psychic projection of the commander in the warp?
I'm thinking of adding a green stuff cape on the tutelary to hide the hollow lower back torso, I also need to decide to use a clear flying stand or mount something large onto the circle on the rear of the base and pin him to it?

As you can see I have a dead space wolf terminator on the base, I wanted a burnt out wolf corpse as well but have had no luck finding a single vampire counts dire wolf to use, anyone got a spare dire wolfie who needs a good home?

Anyway what do you think?

GETTING BACK TO WORK
Sorry for the lack of updates I've been working on a Steampunk gauntlet for an expo I attended on Saturday, I maybe upload a photo for you lot to see. Anyway with that out the way I can get back to working on my commander and his large tutelary dreadknight for Throne Of Skulls next month, which you can see below is coming on quite nicely. Base is still crying out for a burnt wolf, anyone got a spare plastic dire wolf?

COMMANDER ZUL'AZADAR OF THE 6TH FELLOWSHIP
Since my old commander can't be used in non GW tournaments I decided to make this new version. Also no Thousand Sons Captain or sorcerer wears terminator armour in the art books or the novel, not even Ahriman of the 1st so I decided to also go with artificer armour for this version.



Like the last one this model will represent my Grand Master but for most games he'll likely be on the Dreadknight base channeling his power through his massive tutlary. By the what do you think to the purple scarab detail? Does it work on this model or do you think it would look better in gold?

All that is needed to complete the Dreadknight now is the dead space puppies on the base!

Did you at least make it past the Pain saga?

I also like the purple addition.

THE LITTLE THINGS
I needed to create a Spire Guard armed with a lasgun for my new list who would most likely be manning the defence quad turret so I converted this Spire Guard Combat Engineer.
I also realized I didn't have a objective for 'Relic' missions so I created this large magic tome.



THE PROJECT'S GRAND FINALE
Well I'm done for this project for now but what better way to finish off the Thousand Sons but with this awesome looking Dreadknight Proxy of a Thousand Sons Commander with a powerful Tutelary familiar.



I did experiment with the idea of adding some blue lighting effects for the Tutelary but it's very difficult to make work on red armour and the ruins, the glow effect from the sword however came out perfectly.
The Tutelary is pinned to the ruin using a clear flying base so he's very far forward from the pillar and thanks to the positioning of the arms and shield you can't see it unless from looking at it from a certain angle. Of course I enjoyed adding the Space Wolves especially the one with the burnt face.

I'll be entering him into the 'Throne Of Skulls' monster miniature contest next Saturday.

WHAT NEXT FOR THE 15TH LEGION?
I'll be taking a break from the Thousand Sons to work on my Grot Rebels, but after they're up to date I'll be returning to convert my Cybernetica robots into Broadsides and creating Spire Guard shock troops for Fire Warriors. Also I may add a few more Thousand Sons infantry units and a another commander like model for use as a Librarian.
Of course if I'm able to get a hold of a decent full army picture I'll post it up on this log, till then!

Your army is so inspiring to me! I actually had a similar idea to use spire guard and gk's as the rules for a preheresy TS army!

I hope you don't mind but I may have to steal a few ideas from you such as the necrosphinx dreadknight as I think it's just TOO cool and I do plan on running a dreadknight or 3.

One question though as I'm sure it's been asked and answered before but i really don't feel like looking through all the pages here, but what legs did you use for the spireguard? I can tell the torsos are Cadian but I can't quite put my finger on what legs those are!!!

Anyways love the conversions and the heavy fluffiness to the army! Well done man!
