What happened to my Pre-Heresy Thousand Sons?

From this thread

Age of Ego's asked: "What happened to the Heresy TS? You saving them for the Adepticon...or did you nail down a list yet? Any pics of the conversions?"


Well, a couple of things happened... I took a 2 month break, and now I am getting ready for the Broadside Bash.

This is what I have 2 weeks to paint:

16 Warp Spiders

3 War Walkers

2 Wraithlords

4 Jetbikes

Fix and repair 8 Harlequins


Then the next month for Adepticon:

4 Wave Serpents

Assemble and paint 9 vypers

Finish my other 6 War Walkers

I am lucky that my fellow teammates are going to do my Adepticon team tournament army this year and I can take this one off.


For the So Cal Slaughter and the next month after that I have to work on a few big bugs to round out my Tyranid army.


No painting for the 'Ard Boys *whew!*


I am playing my Eldar right now because I am enjoying them the most right now, and they give me the best chance for winning an invite to Vegas, and in Adepticon for the European Team tournament.


After that I will have time to work on an army. So there is a good chance that I will finally get to work on my Thousand Sons. I bought all of the bitz for them during all of the Thanksgiving sales, so they are ready to go when I clear up some time for them.



  1. Hey Blackmoor this is a great blog you've got here. Keep it up!

    So are you re-doing your Eldar vehicles? They looked pretty good from the battle reports I've seen but that sounds like a lot of work in such a short time.

    Also, you don't want to do the Adepticon team tourney? That's my favourite part of the whole event!

  2. For some reason I can't change my Blogger avatar. :p

  3. No, I am doing the Team Tournament, it is my favorite event too!

    It is just that Centurian99 (Bill Kim) is painting up the army, and I do not have to do any work on it this year.

    4 and 5 years ago we each painted our own armies and brought them, then we decided pool our work and ship it around the country and have each of us do a portion, and I ended up painting a lot of our team tournament 2 years ago when we did Tau, but I have been able to take off last year, and this year. Next year I hope to do an army that I want to do and I can do a bit more of the work.

    Oh and as far as re-painting my army it is good that you are looking at pictures that are from far away, but there are a few pieces that need a lot of work.

  4. Darn, I was looking forward to some TS Heresy conversions. I'm about done wrapping up my heresy Scars Adepticon list (It will likely be more pretty than competitive). Well, guess I'll have to keep an eye out for your Eldar and wait for the Heresy Sons.

  5. Ahh, okay. This sentence confused me:

    "I am lucky that my fellow teammates are going to do my Adepticon team tournament army this year and I can take this one off."

    ...but now I see what you meant.
