For any of you experianced with the Tomb King models, do you think there are any pieces of them that could be used for Thousand Sons marines?
For decoration of a Sorcerer and possibly Rubric Terminators.
looking at the models i could possibly use the Tomb guards and cut off their weapons and tabards to use......but 45 bucks for tabards sounds a bit much.

It's fun to mix the Tomb Kings with 40k!
The easiest s to use the Tomb King bits for your HQ conversions.
I did this with my Chaplain, the pic is not so good, but you should get an impression. Click!
For the conversion I only used one Tomb King mini Click! Lich Priest
But it should be possible to use the other HQs as well.
The Tomb King has great weapons that are easy to convert. Click!
The Tomb Queen has a great weapon as well, but you should be able to use nearly the whole mini for an HQ conversion! Click!
The casket Guard swords and vultures are nice as weapons and decoration for vehicles. You have to scroll a bit Click!
The Tomb Guard is probably not the best choice, because as you said they can get very expensive.
The icon bearers could be used for your chaos icons. Click!
Plastic Skeletons are useful for nearly everything! shields, icons, decoration, etc. Click!
And last, but not least the perfect weapon for Daemon Princes, the Ushabti Glaive! Click!
Hopefully I could show you some inspiring bits!

The TombKings has, as Hekau Chasut showed, some great bits for conversions. I have used some for my Sons and am very pleased with the outcome.
I do however recommend to use the metal minis for this as the boxed sets are a bit limited- there are mainly skeleton parts. Perhaps it's better to get the sprues directly from GW.
Tabards are easily made from GreenStuff and if you have not tried this yet I strongly urge you to do it soon.
I'll try to get some pics of my conversions for you, but at the moment my digicam is a bit... cursed.
thank you for the quick and valuable responses. Its a shame that in order to get the peices i'd need i would have to cut up an entire model, but i suppose that half of the fun.
I've never tried tabards from green stuff before, it doesn't seem to want to work for me. sometimes it seems impossible to even make a round ball out of it.
