Hee guys,

I want to start collecting 40k and I wanted to build a Thousand Sons army. I tought it would be really cool to replace the demons & cultists with Skaven. The Idea started when I was considering a Verminlord as a Demon Prince and I don't like the vibe of Nurglings and Cultists with the army.

My current headcanon is that the Skaven are the (lab)rats the Thousand Sons used to experiment on to cure the Fleshchange and they evolved into the Skaven (also have the Magnus Gene). Some can have like multiple tails or arms.

Other option was them being some of the former citizens of Prospero. The Fleshchange could either be the curse of the bells as in the old world or the changes the humans experianced in the warp.

All in all, the skaven are bound to the will of the Thousand Sons, but not to Tzeech and always travel with them. They share the same affection for magic with a degrading mind. Like the Rubrics they are Slaves to the sorcerers. They would pretty much fulfil all the roles in the army that isn't the legion, her mechs or demon engines.

I was wondering what you guys think of the idea?

- Would it be acceptable to play with (including Tournaments)?
- Does it fit the Thousand Sons for you?
- Or any other toughts or ideas?

Looking forward to the replies!

Great idea!, i think they would fit in nicely actually. I just finished painting this one, but it's for friend, other wise i would consider doing the same thing with my very small 1k Army.

Yeah but the lore is fine. You can always think of something that works I think. It's really an esthetic thing. Wether your opponents enjoys playing against your army and is not hindered by it
