The Silent Host: Scarab Occult Terminators - The Sekhmet

Teleport-striking from the aether with a hissing crackle of ozone, the Terminator-armor clad troops of the Scarab Occult stride forward inexorably. Their heavy plate deflects weapons fire, while their twin-linked bolters tear enemy troops to shreds. Once their steady gait has brought them within melee range, power-bladed khopeshes reap a heavy toll, slicing through bodies like wheat.

Scarab Occult are some of my favorite Thousand Sons models. They have all the aesthetic choices of Rubricae, but are a bit larger, which renders them easier to paint. Additionally, there's just something appealing about the lines of their modified Tartaros-pattern armor that really speaks to me.

They're also fun to play. Deep-striking them onto an objective or behind enemy lines is...Very satisfying. If you drop a Terminator Sorcerer alongside them, it's a great time. For you. Not your opponent.
