Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hey everyone, ive finally mustered up the courage, but more importantly, the cash to add the much coveted defiler to my extreme-fluff Thousand Sons army. Just as a side note, in keeping good to my word, my army has the "less spiky, more egyptian" feel to it, and therefore i want my defiler to be in a scorpion configuration as opposed to the regular one.
Anyway i plan on using 2 defiler kits as well as parts from a Dark Eldar Raider, as seen in the links on the bottom of the post (im not good with the whole embedding pics thing). i really really admire both of these conversions and plan to borrow the idea for mine heavily from them (if you look closely, they have slight differences in the two conversions, besides the obvious similarities), and so im posting this because im just looking if anyone has any experience with this conversion, or any comments/criticisms/help for the conversion, or just wants to pop in and say hi.
thanks a ton
ps sorry for writing an essay

Hey i know where your coming from also. I myself have a fluff-based thousand son army. The only problem i have with defiler shown in those images is that it says thousand sons, but i see nothing that link it to the thousand sons? it doesn't scream Egyptian to me either other than the one eye in the middle, its even painted more along the lines of Khorne. Now i dont have any ideas for a better one, but i dont necessarily think that this is the way to go. Now if you can find bits or whatnot to add an Egyptian feel i'd say that would be perfect.
I reject your reality and substitute me own!
actually if it were painted like khorne/world eaters it would be white and blue, because this awesome brass scorpion is panted in PRE-HERESY THOUSAND SONS!!!!! common mistake.its even painted more along the lines of Khorne
Love the model, PH 1k sons is probly going to be my next army, they gots the coolest fluff.
congrats, AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
