Rashidi, Pre-Heresy Thousand Sons Boarding Marine by skycat Rashidi, Pre-Heresy Thousand Sons Boarding Marine by skycat
Rashidi, the first of my Pre-Heresy scheme Thousand Sons. The model is the Forgeworld special Boarding Marine, only sold at Games Day Australia 2011.

Had a lot of fun painting this guy. :D First time attempting zenithal lighting, using wet-blending.

Base was made from spare greenstuff and Realistic Water from Secret Weapon Scenics.

Sorry, I don't actually have anywhere special I get my parts from! This particular miniature was a Games Day exclusive model, so as far as I know if you weren't at Games Day you can't get it anywhere else.

However, check out Forgeworld! They've got a ton of stuff you can get to make customised models from. :D

Alright then. Now another thing i want to know is If based on the Thunderwarrior figure in the armor through the ages kit is what kind of pieces would you recommend to use for converting a normal marine to a thunder warrior. As far as i know i figured i could possibly use IG helmets. scout heads and arms, chaos backpacks and boots  but i have no idea of which Forge world chest peice would look better, Deathguard MKIII or regular MK III iron armor chest peice

Hmm, I don't know much about the Thunder Warriors apart from the pic on the Games Workshop site. I don't know if I'd use IG heads/helmets - they might be a little small. Worth a try though! You could also try using the various bare-heads from regular marine kits, and if you're feeling really adventurous, try sculpting helmets on them with greenstuff or something.

I also probably wouldn't use chaos backpacks, at least not without modifying them first - the exhausts tend to be noticeably further out away from the backpacks than what I'm seeing on the Thunder Warrior pic. It's possible to modify chaos backpacks though to put the round exhaust things closer to the backpack itself, it just involves some very careful cutting and sanding and some glue. XD I've done it myself but I don't have any pics yet 'cause I haven't touched my WH40k stuff for like a year. :\ Or you could just use regular marine backpacks. 

As for chestplates, I really don't know. You could try both, perhaps - maybe the Thunder Warriors had a mixture of different armour designs as the Emperor was developing them, who knows. Go with whatever you think looks coolest!

Thanks For the Advice on the Subject. I think both would be good the way i look at it because from other pictures i just found shows that most thunder warriors wore blank armor just colored to match the legion they were belonging too.

Thanks! :D I bought the whole model while I was at Games Day 2011, Australia. He's the exclusive Forgeworld model that you could only get at the various Games Day events last year.
