Today we look at the Sons of Magnus, tragically rendered to dust by the hubris of Ahriman, the Thousand Sons. For creating a “sharp” edge like in eddies, you can be a lil sloppy on the initial blue/red join, then “draw” the border with a touch of grey/black from the desired edge back into the blue while the blue is still moist.. Alternatively, red and blue will mix to purple, so if you want a “smooth” transition from one to the other, wet blend both colors into nagaroth night (or desired purplish-transition color) at the joins.. IMO that type of blending is a lil easier, albeit terrifying to consider for the headdresses. Thousand Sons were always part of my plan to cover all nine Traitor Legions.
Recommend color for 30k Sons? Some people also like Thousand Sons by Graham McNeill. Mostly dust tho.
I kept the head and backpack separate, which is typical, but also the shoulder pads since they’re quite bulky and can make arm details hard to get to that are still visible after assembly. Ah, the tragic tale of the Thousand Sons. In our How to Paint Everything series, we take a look at different armies of the Warhammer universe, examine their history and heraldry, and look at several different methods for painting them. Enter the Lost Sons.
The Blue: Like Bonds, I’m in a “blue first, then trim” mindset because it makes doing fades and gradients with the blue easier.
It wasn’t until the summer of 1997 and the release of Codex: Chaos that the seeds of heresy finally take root. For World Eaters there was a box of 10 plastics minatures that were all the same pose and a handful of metal minis in blisters, Emperor’s Children had two sculpts, Death Guard and Thousand Sons had one sculpt each. There were no other miniatures in production for the Thousand Sons. Each of the four Chaos Gods had their own unique marine units, with Tzeentch’s Thousand Sons having a cool gimmick of being MAGIC MUMMY MARINES.
There was one issue with fielding Thousand Sons as An Army. While written largely from the perspective of a Space Wolves Skjald, Dan Abnett’s* Prospero Burns is a great look at the Thousand Sons from an outside perspective and covers one of the most important events in their history. This was one of the first Heresy models that I ever painted,…” • See all of @raptorimperialis's photos and videos on their profile. The key to this scheme is the blue and for this I used Reaper’s, There’s not a ton more colors to do. In a sense, he was successful; in one fell swoop, most of the legion was turned to dust, Space Marines transformed into dust-filled living automata encased within their now-sealed astartes armour. This is likely the last time you'll see c2a5a.bsp on this channel, because i don't think there's anything else that could be done there.
I think he’s a misogynist and bad writer so I haven’t read it but it will give you a look at the legion pre-heresy as well as the burning of Prospero from the Thousand Sons’ perspective. save hide report. Since then I’ve added to the army in spurts, with a little here and there.
Kieran posted on Instagram: “This one is a bit of a retrospective. Gemstones: Khorne Red as a basecoat, then I shade that with Carroburg Crimson and Nuln oil up to the corner. Apocalypse plays well for big monsters and Primarchs so a mixed Thousand Sons force with Daemons and Daemon Engines can be quite fun and fluffy.
Thousand Sons are blessed by copious words written about them, and a lot of them are even good. Always Black. Then I edge highlight with Lothern blue. With model lines in 40K and Horus Heresy, there’s no shortage of Sons to build from. Between Rubrics, Terminators and Tzaangors, you have a solid range of cheap bodies and expensive heavy-hitters to build a roster with.
Thousand Sons are a powerful army in 8th edition. Tzeentch had always intrigued me since I started the 40k hobby. The model line also expanded, with new plastic and metal miniatures.

Even better for understanding the legion post-heresy is Chris Wraight’s War of the Fang which has Magnus invading Fenris and includes a lot of great scenes from the perspective of the few remaining Thousand Sons sorcerers and how they are dealing with the aftermath of their legion’s shattering. I'm hoping to start a 30k army and would love to do them in this style.

Retreating into the Eye of Terror, the legion embraced Tzeentch and the worship of Chaos. The fifteenth Legion of Space Marines, the Thousand Sons were pre-eminent warriors and scholars who claimed the world of Prospero as their own, where they built grand cities and libraries, and sought to understand the truths of the Universe. Eddies I believe is ahrimann blue and mephiston red with some grey/black to blend the edges or some such.
The problem was, there was ONLY that dude. There were no new sculpts for the Thousand Sons. Prime: Black.
These young men were taken from the territory of the Achaemenid Empire to the Emperor's secret gene-laboratories beneath the Himalazian (Himalayan) …
