How are they pre heresy? The armour looks post-heresy mostly to me...

The helmets are very cool....

Good job, like the terminators especially.

Doesn't seem pre-heresy nor thousand sons. Aren't they more bright red (it's nearly brown now), and a lot more white? Right now yellow-brown takes up more space then white. Plus they have these things on their brow that look pretty cool and really makes their helmets.
And finally, army icons would help. IIRC they use a eight-pointed white star with a hole in the center, and those egyptian scarabs.

Painting skills are fine though. I'm being negative but I don't even respond to threads I think suck. So this doesn't suck, it just needs some help becoming really pre-heresy and recognizable as such.

Looks alright model wise, but I think you need to brighten up the red as it seems a bit too dark. Chest Eagles need trimming too :chrome: But good Start!

A few pointers, im not going to burn you with negatives if I can help it. The red could do with brightening up and same for the white, but then again it might be the camera. As said above the eagles could do with being removed because as I recall from the Pre-Heresy and Herersy era fluff only the Emperors Children where the only legion to wear the aquilla eagle. Also, I know its easy to say this and harder to do it with this sorta thing because I have had similar comments with my projects but if you can the armour could do with some altering with Green Stuff to change the appearance. If you like I could send you some scans from the Heresy Collected Visions to help, PM if you want. Apart from that your painting skills are good, the helmets look awesome. Where are they from?? Want to see more of this soon.
Hmm me thinks I will start some Pre-Heresy myself.....

While it's been mentioned, I do find it funny that there's a model there wearing the MK VIII Errant armour, the newest type of armour in 40K:p

The red is a bit dark. I know from experience that 1000 Sons red is an.....odd...red, it's just a wee bit brighter than Blood Red, but has a kind of....I don't know, it's just an annoying colour.

I have fallen in love with those conversions! Highlights on the red armor would add something to this army. And maybe brown wash on the gold parts?
