HOLY MOLY – The new Ahriman/Sorceror mini looks awesome! Take a look.
So remember that leaked sprue from a couple weeks back of the obviously 30K Thousand Sons Sorceror in plastic?
OK, so that sprue came from an ebay auction and it looks like by total chance instead of being shut down by EBay, one very, very lucky guy on Bolter&Chainsword put in a bid – AND WON!
He’s gotten the sprue in the mail, put it together and put up these pictures of the little dude assembled:

Now that we see him in the round, it is absolutely a Thousand Sons Sorceror from the Horus Heresy. I’d bet on Ahriman, but then again it could be any senior officer. It would appear to be a traitor based on the Eye of Horus on the right shoulderpad – but for you purists who want a Loyalist Thousand Sons model, an X-Acto blade should take care of that in short order.
I’m really digging the Scarab motifs. If you recall, there was a set of rumors earlier in the summer pointing to a Battle for Prospero plastic sequal to the Betrayal at Calth set. A model like this would fit right into those rumors.
~Have at it.
