Although Tau of War is somewhat intended to be a Tau-specific blog, I don't have to write about Tau this week. I haven't been playing lots of games with them nor have I discover any cool new tactics. However, a lot is about to happen in the world of 40k. First off, Dark Eldar are almost here and I've decided I am going to collecting them. What I'd like to do is finish painting all the Blood Angels I've got then move on to Dark Eldar. It's not that I am an army-of-the-month painter, it's that I really haven't gotten that excited about the new Blood Angels Codex and I am playing less games with them than I did with the old PDF version.
The Dark Eldar are beautiful and I can't wait for the chance to field an army that is fast and highly skilled, yet folds like a deck of cards in a war of attrition.
But there is one army I have to do before moving to the Dark Side, I'm going to stepping back in time to the year 30,000 and the days of the Horus Heresy. I'm going to visiting the planet of Prospero and building a small elite force of Pre-Heresy Thousand Sons. Below you can see the modest beginnings of this new project.
What I am looking for is inspiration. Readers, if you can help me, I'm looking for some great online resources about the Thousand Sons. I've googled it to no end and discovered some real gems out there but I wonder if any of you out there know any great links to Thousand Sons projects that I could use to help form the vision of this army. I'm looking for great project logs on forums, good tutorials, or even ideas like what you all think would be cool and what bits from the various ranges would work in making loyalist Thousand Sons Sorcerers and Soldiers.
Obviously Forge-world now has some great kits for Pre-Heresy Marines and you can bet I'll be getting some of those. What about the Fantasy range? Anything I need to see from there to incorporate into my conversions. Any independent sculptors out there that are making great bits? Whatever you guys suggest would be great to making this project and really cool unique army.
