Pre-Heresy Thousand Sons Bike Sergeant by skycat Pre-Heresy Thousand Sons Bike Sergeant by skycat
A bike sergeant from my slowly-expanding pre-Heresy Thousand Sons army. Greenstuff and plasticard used to modify the helmet and make the power glaive. Forgeworld MkIV backpack used as well.

Thank you! :D I didn't come up with it myself though, as much as I'd like to claim I did. ;)

It's an absolute pain to paint though, hehehe.

Awesome work. Sry, but I don't think the helmet works. It's just the green stuff's 'goopy' look that is a dead giveaway. From distance, great! but not close up. :heart: the blade with a fiery passion, but not the helmet. Again, sry.

Thanks! And yeah, I need to improve my greenstuff work - I only started using greenstuff a few months ago, still learning. I admit I didn't put as much effort into this guy's helm as I probably should have - I just wanted to get him done, heh. Since he's more meant for game and not just display, I'm not too worried about how it looks close up. As long as it looks decent on the tabletop, I'm happy enough.

Thanks again for the comment! :D

You make a persuasive arguement. I wasn't trying to critisize, I just have a wierd way of showing affection. I still find it odd how in pre-heresy the thousand sons were red, but in chaos (tzeentch if i'm correct) they're an awesome sapphiric blue in colour! Why? That is the question. :eyepopping:

No worries, I don't mind honest criticism! It gives me incentive to improve next time round. ;)

As for the colour change... I'm not sure why, but at some point after the Sons ended up on the Planet of Sorcerers, Magnus ordered them all to paint their armour blue. It may be because Tzeentch's colours are blue and gold, it may have been to distance themselves from what they used to be - it may have something to do with loyalist marines using blue to distinguish their own Librarians. Who knows. XD

Hehe, thanks!

If this guy starts singing "You've got the Touch", I'm going to be worried.

And then I'm going to blame you. ;)

very cool, excellent work on the weapon, sorry to hear it's fragile. You can't get a pin into it? Or maybe use Epoxy?

Thanks! :D Unfortunately the haft's a little too narrow for me to drill into properly. :( It's all right for general handling, it only breaks off (apart from when I dropped it!) because I don't have a proper carry case for my models yet, so it was carefully wedged into my work box. Apparently not carefully enough, heh. Now that it's finished though I won't be carting it around the place, so hopefully it won't break off again any time soon.

The blade is carved out of plasticard, the handle is some spare weapon handle, and all the details are added with greenstuff. It's just the join where the handle with the blade on it attaches to the hand - there's not much surface area for the glue to hold on to, and since it sticks out from the model it tends to catch on things and get broken off a lot. Ah well.
