Heresy Era Thousand Sons - Sekhmet Terminators begin!

A quick hit this afternoon, managed to sneak in a decent amount of hobby time over the weekend! Not too many Thousand Sons units await the attentions of the painting servitor at this point, next up on deck are the two 5-man Sekhmet Terminator units.

I decided I'd do one set in Tartaros armor armed with combi-plasma guns and power fists, using a combination of the heresy Tartaros kit, the new 40k thousand sons plastics, and some shoulder pads from Pop Goes The Monkey on shapeways.

The second unit wears Cataphractii suits and are armed with combi-bolters with Asphyx shells and chainfists (my favorite melee weapon for terminators). Again a mix of bits and kits, with the leftover thousand sons combi-bolters from the tartaros set, resin torsos and loincloths from Wargames Exclusive, the heresy Cataphractii legs and arms and further shoulder pads from PGtM.

Doing all ten concurrently, and thus far it's just the white and gold trim on 'em, but that comprises the most tedious portion by far. Still quite a ways to go, but pretty happy with how they're coming along so far!


  1. Sweet! That Tartaros one at the end is definitely having a "Luke, I am your father" moment!

  2. They are looking pretty slick so far chief. Not a fan of the loincloths on the second set, but finished paint will help.

  3. Never thought I'd like the look of 1k sons in Tartarus armour, but those look pretty cool!

  4. @Monkeychuka: Haha! Thanks!

    @Rory Priest: Aye, the Cataphractii loincloths are a bit more ragged than I'd prefer in retrospect.

    @Dai: Cheers, man!
