Returning to 40k, my Thousand Sons Kill Team
It’s been about 20 some odd years since I have bought any 40k miniatures having abandoned the game after 3rd edition.
For me, 2nd Edition was my favorite of the series and was what we gamed as a group back in the day at my buddy’s comic book store.
My local gaming group has been playing a few games of Kill Team, and having played it wanted my own force.
I didn’t want to use a faction I had fielded before and also wanted my troops to be able to ally when necessary with my buddy Tim’s Nurgle forces.
You can view his awesome troops on his blog, The Safe Hole.
Anywho, my thoughts on the 40k forces I bought.
I bought a Start Collecting box set of the Thousand Sons and my first thoughts upon opening the box were that this product is much more polished than the 40k I knew before.
What I mean by that is that inside the box were stats, detailed assembly instructions as well color guides. It is very thorough.
My second thought was there are a lot of pieces to these minis! They really are more like models now, but I can say the way they fit together is done very intuitively.
Also included in the box set are decal sets.
So here are my Thousand Sons Rubric Marines
All set for action, recovering arcane artifacts
While reaping revenge on the false emperor
The bases are from Dragonforge, which I can’t recommend enough, great product and service.
These guys were very time consuming to paint, but I’m happy with how they turned out.
More to come,
