Hey I was thinking of Starting a Pre-Heresy Thousand Sons army, and I wanted to know how to make them look the way they do. Also what pieces should I use? If there is any pictures of conversions, also I plan on having Magnus the Red as my leader so if anyone done a loyal conversion of him i would be grateful of the pics.
Well, doing an entire army of the suckers is gonna be a fair amount of cash - there are pictures of their pre-heresy scheme in one of the index astartes books and also in a number of the "horus heresy" art books. They're reddish pink predominantly with white trims, and have a number of scarabs and embellishments on their armour.
As for Magnus, there's a detailed description of him in the book "False Gods". Contrary to some's belief, he was not a cyclops in the traditional sense - he only had one eye, and the other was an empty socket. Look it up, and I wish you luck with the conversion opportunity - it's a challenge for certain.
The only difference between tattooed people and non-tattooed people is that tattooed people are awesome and can kick your ass.

i have started a squad of this legion, and it is pretty easy to paint, but not to my eye. i am meticulous, but a dunce at painting. the colors ar dark(scab-blood) red with bronze/gold highlights. the symbol i can find you, as well as a link to a GW view of what they look like.
Yeah that would be good. I have read false gods and that is why i wanted to start them. I am a true space wolves player but after i read what really happened with magnus i feel sorry so I guess my impression of them changed so i really want to do an army on them because one they look cool and it would be cool to see.
You can pm me that link or post it here.
dude.. where can i find this false gods book?
PM me about Aurora Prime Vassal fights! Willing and ready!
i think it should be on the black library website, a section of GW. they publish almost every book if not all about the 40K universe, and WHFB. good stuff, really. never read that one, but i've read other books, and they are good.
Here's a link. Go in on the pre-heresy space marines and look.
They look good but I think the one Andusciassus posted looks much better.

Long ago there was something in me, but now that thing is gone,
I cannot cry, I cannot care, that thing will come back no more.

Where did they get the heads for the models are they chaos warrior heads or what? Also is that the sign of their chapter b4 the heresy. Also For the magnus i was going to use the blood thirster body beccassue magnu was a giant among the primarchs and its furry like magnus. What do you think of this idea, If i dont use the blood thirster body where could i find a suitable body with armor or stuff like that to represent a primarchs massive body.
Just a pointer, i think that Zartas didnt make that model but found the pic on the net and ecided to share it with everyone.
