I am making a 10 man tac squad of Pre-Heresy Thousand Sons.
I am going to base them so it looks like the ruins of Prospero.
Here is the first guy he still needs some fine tuning

Should I try to paint the eyes or leave it as is and if so what color?

Yay , pre heresy ! Anyways , wonderful model , i'd just touch up the white freehand on his shoulder pad , as you can still see the red . If you want to paint the eyes , i'd suggest you have it glowing ? a blue or yellow . And dont forget to have some dead space wolves too , eh ? ;)

Good luck on this , Would Love to see more !

As far as I can remember, the chapter symbol for the Thousand Sons was a big red M, if you were not aware. M being the Roman numeral for 1,000 and the Initial of Magnus the Red, before Tzeentch put his big flaming stamp on them.

Those fork-tongued Fluff-Traitors at GW changed it, though. Now, the 1000Sons use a Sun-Wheel similar to the Star of Chaos (and supposedly "always have").

Sadly, the only group to use the "M" anymore are those f@kking poser saddies the Brotherhood of a Thousand, a lame, know-nothing "Codex" Marine Chapter. Ah, well.

I should mention,by the way, that the "warding rune" on the hand is a totally awesome touch, and that I love this mini. Great job, EsinHorn!

Thanks for that, cause i went and double checked myself on wikipedia et al. and found the sun wheel symbol everywhere! Was beginning to think I was spreading false information.

I like it! I was just wondering, is the head a norse marauder one? Or is it something else that I don't recognise? lol

I like it so far!

Perhaps with an extra highlight on the hand and tidying up the chapter symbol a bit would make it even better.

Ooh, pretty!

I've seen a lot of your other stuff, Eisenhorn, and this is by far the best.

Keep up the good work!

i have to agree with trooper, glowing blue eyes would make a great little detail

Booo! Red eyes bad!

Leave them black. Looks much better.
