Sons of Horus Praetor and Command Squad

"Heresy is like a tree, its roots lie in the darkness whilst its leaves wave in the sun and to those who suspect nought it has an attractive and pleasing appearance. Truly, you can prune away its branches, or even cut the tree to the ground, but it will grow up again ever the stronger and ever more comely. Yet all awhile the root grows thick and black, gnawing at the bitter soil, drawing its nourishment from the darkness, and growing even greater and more deeply entrenched."

This is the first in what will be a long, long series of Sons of Horus articles. 

The Praetor is the forgeworld kit with a modified back banner and Cthonian top-knot head. The command squad is fairly straight out of the box with the addition of an extra chosen added.

My entire Sons of Horus army will be on lava bases with an OSL glow effect on their lower legs.


  1. Looks promising. I am jealous of all you HH boys. I love it too but am holding out for the 1st legion before i start my HH hobbying ;)

  2. Looking pretty good man. I must admit though, I'm not feeling the back banner on the captain. I just feel like that between the Praetor and the Banner Bearer it's a little too much, and it doesn't suit the pose of the model

  3. Looking good, man! Definitely like the topknots throughout - really helps tie them together. Can't wait to see how you're going to go for the green!
