Thousand Sons Khenetai Occult Blade Cabal Unboxing and Build

Today's post is about the Khenetai Occult Blade Cabal upgrade set.  I haven't bought the full sets as I have a load of Marines from Betrayal at Calth (B@C) sets and have marines available to use.

The cover shows the models painted in the superior metallic red scheme most Forgeworld Thousand Sons are painted in.  The parts not included in the set are thoughtfully greyed out.

The contents of the pack, is twenty parts.  Each weapon set is in a unique pose, but is otherwise identical.

The parts laid out.  All are well cast except an air bundle on one sword (?).

A close up of the inside wrist detail (note the air bubble just out of shot)

The Cabal assembles very nicely with super glue.  Here is the finished squad.

This is my favorite pose, he looks suitably pensive.

What do you think of these guys?  How do you think they will perform in games?  Will you be buying some?  Let me know in the comments below.
The long hobby war continues...


  1. Lovely!

    I'm likely going to add a squad on down the road, hard to go wrong with a whole mess of khopesh-style swords!

    1. I'm toying with adding some plasma pistols or hand flamers to the squad. Heresy is more T4, 3+ so I think plasma has more utility. What doe you think?

  2. Now you have to buy Anvil Industry legs to use with the left over bitz....

    1. That's a thought, But I got 2 sets of 10 mkIV legs off ebay for (slightly) less...

    2. Another small win in the long war....
