I've been sitting on a fully assembled and primed Thousand Sons army for some time now, but thanks to real life shenanigans and general procrastination I haven't gotten around to actually painting them. So my goal is to have the entire 1500 point army finished by the end of this contest. A lofty task, but I look forward to the challenge!
My first entry is a unit of Chaos Space Marine Havocs.
I've always fancied the Thousand Sons chapter. I love their aesthetic and find their lore really interesting, especially that their armor is a sealed tomb animated by magic and empty except for a handful dust - all that remains of the Space Marine who once wore it. Riffing off this concept, I went with an Egyptian-inspired theme, and played up the animated armor angle.
I did a fair bit of converting on each of the figures in this army. For this Havoc squad I replaced their helmets with skulls from the Tomb Kings Tomb Guard boxed set. I wanted them to appear intimidating, but otherworldly, so I went with a blue tint on the skulls instead of the standard bone color. Weapon wise - two of the Havocs are armed with Heavy Bolters, one has a Rocket Launcher, and other wields a Lascannon.
