I warned you distraction was likely:
With Thousand Sons finally getting their own 30k rules, I figured I
should really get on and actually get my army painted before everyone
else jumps on the bandwagon and start Thousand Sons armies, especially
considering Magnus seems to be the new go-to model for cheesy Primarch
There's still loads to do on these guys before I'm even close to
considering them finished.The main thing is adding transfers and a
freehand Raptora symbol put onto their shields. The Raptora Cult Arcana
gives them a rather tasty 5+ Invunerable Save at range and 4+ in combat,
making them incredibly tough. I was initially leaning towards basing my
army around the Corvidae, but Raptora seems to suit my style and vision
for the force better.
I've got another 11 of these guys to finish, once my bits order for more
Sigmarine shields arrives, plus an Apothecary and Preator to add in.
After that I'm probably going to go back and finish my DE Corsairs
before cracking on with the rest of my XVth Legion forces.
Lots to do, but with work being so quiet this time of year, I've got
plenty of time to actually get things finished. I'll post more soon.
