Thanks guys! Really appreciate all the comments, well besides the heretical ones of course!

Finished painting up the medic with needle pistol but I am just waiting to get some decent pics of him. Until then, I have got to share this little idea of mine, tell me what you think!

Alternate future Deathwatch!

Three weeks before the infamous Istvaan dropsite massacre, chief librarian Ahriman and many other members of the corvidae cult began to receive horrific visions of the events that were quickly unfolding. Unable to prevent the full disaster that was about to unfold, Ahriman did the only thing he could, cause as much chaos and disruption among the ranks of he soon-to-be traitor legions as possible. This was no easy task if it was to be accomplished in time to cause the maximum damage. Visiting his old friend Amon, the esteemed captain of the 9th fellowship, the two unleashed the wrath of the Thousand Sons.

Amidst every single legion of the Adeptus Astartes lurked an agent of the Thousand Sons, these troops were known as the Hidden Ones. These deep cover spies had been placed methodically to gather intelligence about their fellow battle brothers, without even being aware of the fact that they served the XV legion. Ahriman had Amon contact each member of his company, who were all scattered throughout the galaxy and release the barriers around their minds. Each were told of the situation and told what their part to play would be, to gather together every loyalist marine they could gather to their side and convince them of the events that were soon to unfold. Many the Hidden Ones approached were unable to believe such high tales but there were others who had witnessed strange things during their time in service, rituals that bordered on heresy, strange occult practices and the dark looks in the eyes of their primarches.

When the time came, these marines who were loyal to the Imperium of Man over their battle brothers banded together, organizing a vast rebellion, coordinated through the psychic abilities of the Thousand Sons. These noble warriors were to converge in the Istvaan system to provide an extra punch to aid the warriors of the Imperium who would be desperately outgunned against the traitors.

On the eve of battle Ahriman met with the Space marines that the Hidden ones had recruited on the flagship Photep. Greeting them all in a booming voice that filled the grand chamber in the center of the vessel he addressed them all. "Battle brothers, warriors of the Emperor, a great tragedy is soon about to befall us, we will be betrayed by many of our fellow legions, while I may not be able to change the course of events that is coming to meet us, WE can still make a difference! You all have a part to play in the coming hours, you shall rally to the beleaguered defenders on Istvaan V and smash these heretics, with my own legion at your side the tide can be changed, history needs not go in this direction, it is in our hands, let us take advantage of this and aid our comrades!" Pausing, Ahriman allowed his words to sink in then raised his staff and screamed "For the Emperor!" at the top of his lungs. Roars of approval met him and each Marine in the chamber raised their fists, readying themselves for the incoming battle.

Within the hour, each loyalist was garbed in jet black armour, representative of their new status and battle brothers with the exception of the right shoulderpad, still proudly displaying their founding chapters colours. Emerging from the Warp, the newly anointed Deathwatch and the Thousand Sons shot toward the planet of Istvaan V...






Phew, that took a while to compose! For those allergic to text block, the general idea is a Deathwatch made up of members of the traitor legions, supported and commanded by the Thousand Sons.

I think I may build a squad (or two!) of these guys to go along with the Sons to act as an elite unit with varied skills, I am rather looking forward to it!

Any input would be greatly appreciated, be it ideas for the models or the fluff, I am eager to hear your thoughts!

Ok, my advise...

If your doing thousand sons as a loyalist legion, you REALLY need to explore the symbology and design of them. get yourself some of the tomb kings kits and play with the swords and shields, the concept is nice but... the modelling just makes them cloaked blood angels at the minute.

Sorry man, nice models, but they don't quite reach the level i think your aiming for.

-oh and you can produce the scarab easily with green stuff,



it'd do a lot for you, and all it is (basically) is a off circle with three lines in it.

A Chaos Deathwatch squad would be really cool, its an excellent idea the best of the traitor legions.

Looking forward to seeing these guys wish I thought of something along those lines, they will make an excellent chosen squad.

These models are really really nice. Thousand son's is by far my favorite legion out of both loyalist and chaos. However, the lack of traditional Thousand Son's Iconography is making me cringe. You have Blood Angel's and Dark Angel's symbols still allover them, but no Thousand Son's symbols. I love the idea, but I just don't think a red paint job makes them Thousand Sons. The thousand sons where always a unique legion, and to take that away their symbols and iconography is pretty much blaspemous. I understand you're getting new heads for them but you really need more iconography than that.

Keep them criticisms coming for I know it means I will end up with a better result in the end!


Just for you Max, here is the update I have long been procrastinating about...


Thousand Sons Apothecary

Armed with his trusty chainsword and needle pistol, the apothecaries of the Pavoni cult are an essential component for the legion.













It was only after I finished painting the red that I remembered that apothecaries are white...ah well!

Okay, as promised, WIP shots.

Thousand Sons Honour Guard

Pretty pleased with these guys, they are a mix of the Calgar boxed set and GK plastics and an Emperors Champion.

For the obligatory finecast review, the emperors champion was perfect, not a single flaw, barely even a mold line on it! The Calgar set was a disappointment however. The bolter molds were misaligned badly though did not have any bubbles, the two similar guard are riddled with bubbles, one specifically was so bad on top that I had to chop the head off entirely! Calgar and the other guard were pretty good, nothing a modeler like myself could not fix. Oh, I was also sent the wrong sprue as the set did not come with Calgars head and a few swords, instead I got two of the bolter sprues (both badly misaligned as I said). No matter, I bought the set to chop up anyway!

There, now that that nastiness is out of the way, let's get cracking!

Awesome! Glad to see you starting on your blog! And why the hell didn't I think of alt-future 1K Sons...

Ah well, I love the look of yours- especially the Honor Guard. And your awesome khopesh weaponry! I'll be keeping an eye on this, as I've got no time at the moment to continue my own Sons. Perhaps watching will get me back on the horse...?

Keep up the great work, Cain! I like the mix of red and robes for the Pyrae!

Your conversions are top-notch! I must say, they are exactly how i believe a conversion should be!

I MUST ask, how did you make the needle pistol? Im building an assassin with one for Inquisimunda, but havent got any idea where to begin

I dont put a lot of thought into the things I say. So forgive me if i say something idiotic or offensive, its not intended. i blame the moon monkeys.

Thanks! Hmm, the body of the pistol is a dark eldar shruiken pistol with the spikes removed. Now I honestly can't remember where the ammo cartridge came from though it could have been a little bit from he baneblade kit, I shall have a look for you!

Thanks Izzy and Perkustin!

Looking good, just a quick question, the (what looks like a) gun magazine on the Storm Bolter of the Inquisitorial Overseer...where did it come from? It looks just like a round canister with the Inquisition symbol on it.

Thanks!

The bolter mag is actually the fuel canister off the TAGK set. I was just trying to plaster him in as many inquisitor symbols as possible!
