With the robots done for the moment itís time to move onto the 2nd ally of the Thousand Sons the Prospero Spire Guard. As I mentioned before I wanted to create something regal looking but practical and I believe Iíve hit that target with this guy.
I was worried about the top knot at first but it works well with all the other details, however finding that many high elf top knots will prove the larger problem. The ceremonial sword was going to be at the side but it was hard to place on and see due to the gun so I mounted it on the back. Speaking of which they were to be armed with Lasguns then I found out henchmen are armed with a laspistol and close combat weapon so I armed them with boltguns instead, using some bits from an interceptor backpack and the clip of an old bolter to concert the lasgun into a assault rifle.
The robes will be red, the armour gold and the top knot bleached however Iím unsure what tone to use for the visor, suggestions?
The squad Iím building at the moment is a long range support squad and includes 3 plasma cannon servitors which Iím converting into automated mobile defence turrets which are controlled remotely. I still have a few more details to add which you will see when the full squad is completed.
