|I paint my Tzeentch models in the blue and yellow colors
typical of post-heresy Thousand Sons. Black and white are used for contrast
colors. This model started as a Fantasy Tzeentch champion. Add Bolter
and backpack, and Presto, instant Sorcerer Marine!
||In our house rules, Globes of Change are grenades, it made sense
for Tzeentch to have a spirit warrior equipped with a Grenade Launcher!
This is the classic metal spirit warrior model , with a portion of his
bolter carefully carved away and replaced with a grenade launcher from
an Arbites model. I carried the blue and yellow banding theme on
the grenade tubes of the launcher. I also used more black and a darker
blue for a more sinister look. Only the ribbed areas are painted
yellow, with a red wash for contrast.
|The new Thousand Sons box set is a must buy- in addition to nifty metal
parts you can use on other models (like terminators!), you also get this
great Sorceror model. For contrast, I painted his robes a dark red.
His force sword is black with steel drybrushed edges. I'm getting
better at doing nice brass trim- I base coat in brass, wash with dark brown,
and do a very light drybrush with steel. This look is particularly
effective on face masks like this guy's helm and backpack.
||To bulk out
the ranks, cultists have been added to all my chaos forces including Tzeentch.
Of course, psychic cultists don't hurt... The model on the right
is a light wizard from the Warhammer fantasy range. The model on
the left is a converted plastic figure from another game.
|Another nice sorceror model- Brian Nelson did a good job of emulating
Jes Goodwin's style on these sorcerors. I replaced the original force
axe with a rather sinister looking sword from another model line.
I continued the brass face mask theme, and painted his robes green for
contrast. The backpack uses bits from a noise marine pack, trying
to continue the ornate theme seen on other sorcerors.
||This model is not particularly Tzeentch--I use it to represent a Dark
Apostle. This extensive conversion is based on Fabius Bile's body.
The head is a metal accessory head from the plastic Chaos Warriors regiment.
The right arm claw is from a 1999 mini, with a plastic skull added to it's
clutches. The left arm is a standard plastic chaos marine arm, with
a plasma pistol stolen from Kharn the Betrayer. The left shoulder
pad is a metal one that comes with the chaos bike squadron, I believe.
|The icon on his back is from a Necromunda Wyrd figure. It rests
atop a backpack from Doomrider, I believe. I also added a cloak hanging
from the pack, taken from the new plastic Marauders regiment. I used
a dark red color scheme, with flame colored highlights that give the model
a sort of Tzeentch look (though it's generic enough that anyone could use
