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.

I like the symbol that looks like a crackling sun.

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
