Heresy Era Thousand Sons - Plasma Support Squad and Terminator Sorcerer

Not a lot of hobby time overall this weekend but I did manage to sneak in an hour's worth of build time and put together the plasma-armed support squad for the Thousand Sons. Pretty straightforward, was thinking about doing a full 10-man squad but the unit gets ridiculously expensive at that point. Figure 5 is just about right!

I've also been poring over the army lists to see what I can come up with for the Feast of Blades event coming up next month. Seeing as the actual special rules for the Thousand Sons aren't going to be available for quite some time, I'm thinking that there's one thing that really makes them stand out, and that's the use of Sorcerers. Considering running a trio of 'em for the tournament, two in power armour attached to the tac squads, and one in terminator armour to accompany squad Phosis into battle.

Enter Malagor Auramagma! I had a few leftover terminator bits from the earlier squad build, and kitted him out with a curved axe-head that hadn't been included in the unit build previously, as well as one of the bird-style helmets to help him stand out. Quite looking forward to painting him soon (assuming Real Life(tm) lets up a bit)!


  1. That terminator looks epic! Loving the detail and bits. Wow. Just wow.

  2. careful all that plasma doesn't blow up in your face. I speak as a former Dark angels player who always had lots of plasma... stoopid plasma. Love the conversion on the terminator!

  3. Loving the beaky head on your termi sorceror. Really fitting for a thousand sons wizard. Where do younsource your parts from? They are pretty cool

  4. O wow, that termie looks so perfect for this project.
    Something very Skeksis about him.

  5. @Greg Hess: Thanks very much, man!

    @Zab: Hah! That's always part of the fun in my mind! "I'm mellllltinnnng!"

    @Nafnaf: Thanks! The terminator bits were from a seller on eBay called Irina_est.

    @Jugger: Cheers bud!

    @Dai: Thanks man! Might have to watch The Dark Crystal again soon, been years and years since I've seen it!

    Thanks very much everyone!
