Battle Bunnies 20 Legions of Xmas: The Thousand Sons

On the fifteenth day of Christmas Santa gave to me;
Sor-cerers a' cast-in'

Poi-son and cont-a-gion
Big blue bastards
12 Butchers Nails
Ten Ma-chine addicts
9 Angels weeping
Psy-chos a' skin-in'
Seven breachers breaching
Sa-vage laugh-ing kill-ers!
Dirty ditch diggers
+++Records Expunged+++
And a Legion full of mys-ter-y

Legion: XV
Name: The Thousand Sons
Former Names: None
Primarch: Magnus the Red (The Crimson King)
First Captain at the outbreak of the Heresy: Ahzek Ahriman

Forge World colour scheme:
Red armour colour:
Base coat of Mephiston Red followed by a highlight of Evil Suns Scarlet. This is then shaded with a couple of thin washes of Carroburg Crimson. 

Gold: Base coat of Balthasar gold. This is then highlighted with a mix of Balthasar gold and Auric Armour in a 25/75 ratio. This is followed by a further highlight of Auric Armour and then finally with a mix of Auric Armour and Runefang Steel in a 50/50 ratio.

King Fluff's paint scheme:
I will probably follow the the Forge World scheme, although I may use Halford's primer and then perhaps the Games Workshop spray on top (if that's no longer available then I'll use the Halford's red primer)

Sample 2500 List with Primarch.

Sicarian Battle Tank: armoured ceramite 155

Sicarian Venetor Tank Destroyer: armoured ceramite 210

*working on the assumption that Thousand Sons can take Librarians as compulsory HQ

The list is very hypothetical until we see the rules for the Thousand Sons released. I wanted to put together a list with lighter tanks for maneuverability and a solid core of infantry. The intention is for units to be able to swap transports and make best use of the abilities of the librarians in their midst. Potentially Magnus could use the Spartan as his personal transport if needed with the terminators teleporting in. The anti tank comes from the Sicarians however there may be enough anti-tank poke with Psychic powers to ensure a good offensive line.To expand the force I would upgrade the Spartan and perhaps add transports for a split tactical squad and I would most definitely include at least one Xiphon to boost the harrying and anti-air potential of the force. Potentially I would also add in a contemptor talon as anti-infantry mobile platforms.

I'm very excited for the Thousand Sons (and I have a Betrayal at Calth box with their name on it)


  1. Love that bouble !!

    I will use a metallic scheme for mine (in the far far future^^) :P

    1. Love the metalic red too. Looks awesome.

    I'd add a Praevian too cos of that guy in the Thousand Sons book who lead the Castalxii-esque battle Automata.

  4. Good job you placed that bauble far away from the VI legion counterpart or there could have been trouble!
