Thousand Sons Dreadknight Conversion by Proiteus Thousand Sons Dreadknight Conversion by Proiteus
Well I'm done for this project for now but what better way to finish off the Thousand Sons but with this awesome looking Dreadknight Proxy of a Thousand Sons Commander with a powerful Tutelary familiar.

I did experiment with the idea of adding some blue lighting effects for the Tutelary but it's very difficult to make work on red armour and the ruins, the glow effect from the sword however came out perfectly.
The Tutelary is pinned to the ruin using a clear flying base so he's very far forward from the pillar and thanks to the positioning of the arms and shield you can't see it unless from looking at it from a certain angle. Of course I enjoyed adding the Space Wolves especially the one with the burnt face.

I'll be entering him into the 'Throne Of Skulls' monster miniature contest next Saturday.

I can just about hear the Tutelary letting out ghostly wails as it hovers forth.

that tutelary looks absolutely badass, but... what is he? haha, I'm not familiar with this bit of the lore, I've never seen this before. or should I just keep reading the horus heresy and I'll find out myself :P

In the Thousand Sons novel the majority of the legion used Warp entities as familiars to enhance and sometimes channel their psychic power through.

Just wow.
The whole scene is just wow! Where did you get the arms from? And the helmet/head?
I only saw the glow effects of the burning sword when you mentioned it ... it fits so perfect into the paint job.
Great!

Looks awesome! I really like the lighting on the area around the sword. What is the Tutelary made from?
