Spoiler:
Greetings! I, in my own stupidity, have fallen in love with Ahrimmans new Horus Heresy mini, and, since I love the HH game, I will be building a new Thousand Sons army to follow him around. This was going to be be the Prospero Burns box, but I quickly relized that, since the TS are quite an "ornate" legion, I would have to convert and/or use upgrades on most of the models.
So that's what I'll do.

Here is the army list, just so you can see what my plan is.

HQ

Legion Praetor.....245p

Combi-weapon
Archaeotype Pistol
Master-Crafted Thunder Hammer
Melta Bombs
Iron Halo
Artificer Armour
Jetbike w/ Heavy Bolter

This guy will represent Captain Amon of the 9th Fellowship, query to Magnus the Red
This guy is gonna be fun...

Librarian.....160p

Volkite Charger
Force Stave
Melta Bombs
Refractor Field
Artificer Armour
Mastery Lv. 2

This will be Ahriman until he gets rules.

Librarian.....130p

Volkite Serpentia
Force Stave
Artificer Armour
Mastery Lv. 2

This will represent Tolbek, an adept of the Pyrae who later joined Ahrimans Cabal, left, joined Amon and then was killed by Ahriman.

Elites

Legion Terminator Squad.....227p

Reaper Autocannon
Volkite Charger
2x Power Fist
2x Chainfist


Troops

Legion Tactical Squad.....215p

Additional Chainswords
Vexilla

Sergeant w/
Artificer Armour
Melta Bombs
Power Sword
Combi Weapon

Legion Tactical Squad.....210p

Additional Chainswords
Vexilla

Sergeant w/
Artificer Armour
Melta Bombs
Power Fist
Bolt Pistol

Fast Attack


Legion Seeker Squad

2x Combi-Weapons

Sergeant w/
Power Fist
Artificer Armour
Melta Bombs


Heavy Support

Heavy Support Squad

5x Heavy Bolter

Sergeant w/
Augury Scanner
Artificer Armour



Basically, everything that has Artificer Armour will get a FW TS mkIV Torso and/or head, and I will mik left over MKIV bits form BaC and various bits box finds in with them. The seekers will get the special TS armour, to show they're "special".

So, that's all for now, once I get some test models done I'll post pics.

For the Crimson King!

Holy Terra.

Burning of Prospero has arrived and my first models have been built (these ones are slightly less Sons-y than my future ones, due to them being built completely out of plastic parts).

Scarab Occult:

These guys will be maxed out to a squad of 9, once I get my hands on the new 40k Scarab Occult. The only conversion here are some of the LC (I built them backwards because Tzeentch), but once they're painted they'll seem more Properine (just wait and see).


" target="_new" rel="nofollow">[url=http://www.dakkadakka.com/gallery/848035-.html]

Next up is Ahriman, again just a simple conversion (His head has been tilted towards his outstretched hand a bit more).

" target="_new" rel="nofollow">[url=http://www.dakkadakka.com/gallery/848034-.html]

And finally, I found a sprue of GK termies in my bits box and decided to chop up some nemesis weapons and attempt to make some Sons weapons:

" target="_new" rel="nofollow">[url=http://www.dakkadakka.com/gallery/848033-.html]

Im not sure if I like it, Id prefer using TK stuff but thanks to GW squatting them I can't find any swords on eBay or any of the bits sellers online. I guess I`ll just wait for the next flea market at my FLGS and hope someones selling Tomb Guard for cheap.

Next up are my Heavy Bolter dudes, followed by my Seekers when my FW order arrives.

Stay tuned!

Sounds awesome man, interested to see these Seeker squads

I'll check my bitz boxes, I might have some tomb kings stuff spare... It'd probably only be the skeleton swords, is that okay?

I have no idea whats up with my computer, thats the only way my images will post.


Automatically Appended Next Post:
Seeing as my Sons are an "evil" army, I thought they needed some terrain to fit the army theme. Normally, Ill just build some altars or buildings and call it a day, but this time I thought my project deserved something better (read: bigger).

So here it is! My first attempt at building a Zone Mortalis board!



With some of my Mor Deythan for comparison:



So far this is all have, with materials for another 6 pieces awaiting their turn. This will give me a 2x4 foot board, and Ill expand to a 4x4 once I get more foam. The walls will be added in soon, Im still not sure what I should use for them (Ill probably end up using plasticard) so suggestions are welcome. When I googled "Custom ZM board" all that came up where either Tyrannin themed ones or 2d ones, so Im doing this without any real resources except the FW ZM images and rules.

The board will represent the ship that my army used during the crusade, and that they've started using after Prospero again. I plan to get some Mechanicum models for the crew and maybe convert some GSC neophytes as lower rank serfs.
Also help with the ships name is appreciated, all I can come up with are things like "Magnus` Rage" and "Fury of Prospero", which don't sound very interesting.

As always C&C is welcome!

Ive started on the walls for the Delta Complex (the one with the walls in the corners).



My plan is to add Mechanicum symbols to every other wall panel, and have pipes and wires covering most of the exposed spaces. I might also try and find some Rhino consoles to make some kind of scribe station, or maybe a small altar to Tzeentch. Suggestions are welcome.

And yes, I started today with a sheet of foam board. All of this was done in the last few hours.

Yep, it's shaping up to be great. The wall sections with the cocktail sticks are going to look fantastic when painted.

Holy Terra.

Since my FW stuff hasn't arrived yet, I can't start work on the Seekers and Tacticals.

So here is my first Support marine. As always I began with the sergeant.



He is armed with a Heavy Bolter and Augury scanner, represented by the Tzeentchian eye he carries around. I like to think that it constantly watches out for enemies, and screams loudly whenever it sees one.
The Hvy Bolter is from BaC, and required a lot of cutting and re-positioning to fit on the MK III arms. Im going to have to do this again, seeing as the BoP box only has 3 Hvy Bolters.

Next up will be the rest of the squad, followed by more ZM tiles. Painting should start in a few weeks, once it gets warm enough to spray undercoat.

Until next time.

Sorry about all these posts, Im on vacation so I have plenty of time.


I tried another variant of Power Khopesh, this time using a nemesis falchion base and a WE Ranger weapon.




Im still not sure about it, i like the blade but the hilt seems off. Suggestions on how to make it better are appreciated.

Holy Terra.

Started thinking about what to put in those big open spaces of my ZM board, heres what Ive come up with:


Im not sure about the double pentagram, with the 9 pointed one ( ) over the 6 pointed one, although i do like the placement of the 5 cult symbols and tzeentch symbol (which will most likely be pointing towards the exit.)
Im thinking about having the floor in the middle of the circle be cracked, with strange, otherworldly light shining through and eyes lurking in the depths, but im not sure how much Ahriman will like his underlings messing up his ship.

As always comment and stay tuned for more!

Yep this is really cool love the idea for the centre of the Zone Mortalis board. Perfect!

I like the 2nd converted power sword myself. Still fits with it being Imperial in design, but definitely TSons

Did some more work on the Delta Complex, it now has all its walls and almost all the trim, debris have been added (they'll most likely just get in the way of my minis, but ehh).
The cracks in the floor will either be glowing blue or oozing greenish-black fluid, ill let you guys decide on that. Im also going to paint blood splatters around some of the corners, as if someone took cover there and failed their cover save roll. Im also thinking about painting runes into some of the panels, like on the Burning of Prospero tiles. Next up is the other tile, the one with the Pentagram thing. Stay tuned.

Holy Terra.

A question for the followers of Tzeentch (and everyone else who feels like answering)!
As you may know, my goal for this army is to have it be lead by Amon, because I like how his story and Ahriman`s intertwine. I am going to have him on a Jetbike, because why not, but I still haven't decided how to model him. I will defiantly give him a Sons torso, but I can settle on his helmet. Now, I know Ahriman is currently wearing Amon`s armour (in the 41st millennium) and Amons helmet seems very distinct.
My options are:
1: Use a generic Sons helmet form FW and claim Amon got his horned helmet later.
2: Use a AoS Chaos Warriors helmet.
3: GS horns onto a Sons helmet (probably won't come out well...)
4: Buy Ahriman`s new mini and just use the helmet.
5: Buy Ahriman`s old mini and use the helmet.

Im leaning towards 1, but I would love Ahrimans new minis helmet (i dont want to spend 25£ own it though). What do you guys think...

I would also go with one. If these are pre heresy or during the heresy guys the horned helmet would probably be to chaosy.

Finally got the first tile painted (excluding the edges, im not sure what to paint them).




Seems like someone decided to do a little post-Prospero redecorating...






Some esoteric glyphs:


And a less cultured area of the ship:



Next up is the summoning circle room, followed by a few more hallways and the command deck. Hope you guys like it!

Welcome to the TSons club Emberlord! If you are looking for easy ways to bling out your force I have discovered a couple of easy hacks that you may want to try out

For khopesh style power swords you can just take any old blade and carve out the inside section leaving only the sharp edge remaining. Just be careful you don't remove your finger in the process...

Spoiler:


For nice bits of egyptian style crests you can't go wrong with picking up the Necron Lychguard. Not only do they come with a nice selection of blades also, but their staffs have anough nice bits on them to decorate several squads of marines if you chop 'em up right. Plus you get some sick robot torsos in the process

Welcome again!

Holy Terra.

Thanks guys! I will defiantly try out the Khopesh conversions, and the 'Crons could be useful as a plan on marketing some Mechanicum crew for my ship (board...whatever).

As for the board, I plan on making a full 4x4 foot board, mostly using FW's tiles as a template but some of the more decorative tiles will be custom, with different wall arangements and such. Stay tuned for more, the second and third tiles are awaiting paint now so...


And the Sons will receive paint next week, Ill be in London for the weekend so I can buy paints for cheap.
