Pre-Heresy Thousand Sons Plog #1

Well after my initial decision to start making a PH Thousand Sons army, Legio Malaysia announced their "Legio Army Throwdown" as part of their 2013 Legio upcoming events.

This has provided me the incentive to see my PH army though. The Throwdown is simple enough, get a 2000 pt army list, build, paint and present it over a series of weeks, i.e. week 1 - Troops, week 2 - Elites, etc.

Armies must be not more than 25% completed at the time of beginning the challenge. As an added challenge, armies can be built according to a theme decided by the organisers - in this case the theme is "Horus Heresy". That's right up my alley.

Being in Penang and all, I realise that I probably won't officially be in the contention to win any awards, however I will still give my all for this.

Having pored through the Horus Heresy Book One - Betrayal, this is the initial list I've come up with.
