Heresy Era Thousand Sons - Veteran Squad Khalmekt built

Not much hobby time this past weekend but I did manage to squeeze in an hour or so to put together the veteran squad for the army I'm taking to the Nova Open. The intention is to field them as a squad of 8 at the event thereby being able to be joined by a character and still ride in a transport (as well as being a squad size of Tzeentch's sacred number, heh), but for general usefulness outside of the event I'm building out the full squad of 10.


Going with the tank-hunters theme with a combi-melta on the sergeant and a meltagun for the specialist. I always had a soft spot for the RT-era style missile launcher, and so the unit gets one of those as well to round things out. The unit all get the fancy torsos, loincloths and helmets to help them stand out from the basic tac marines, and one of these days they'll actually have bases to stand on!

Next up in the build queue are a couple units of the aforementioned tac marines, and a couple rhinos for them to roll around in...

Tzeentch's sacred number is 9. I am shocked you didn't get this right. You will have to relearn the Occlus Mordant.

They look very nice though. Only one repeated helmet and all, well played.

@Rory Priest: Aye, 8 veterans and a character joining the squad to make 9. ;) The plan is to have the terminator Delgatus join them and the unit will roll around in one of the Proteus Land Raiders (as terminator-clad models can't use Rhinos).

Now I get ya. Could they not fit 9 marines and a termi though?

Loving the unique heads and torsos, where did you order them from?

@Rory Priest: The terminator takes up two spaces in the land raider, so it's like it was meant to be! :)

@Alpha Omega: Thanks! They're from a company called Wargame Exclusive, same company that does the combat cars and cult limousine.

Somehow they look better without bases.
