Today I finished the first Tzaangor from the Silver Tower box.
I really like these models a lot. They're lots of fun to paint.
Tzaangors are a subtype of Beastmen; those dedicated to the Chaos God Tzeentch.
Tzaangors are considered as natives of the Planet of Sorcerers, despite that world being uninhabited until the arrival of the Thousand Sons. It is recorded that, over many thousands of years, the Planet of Sorcerers has become inhabited with a sizable number of humans, both directly employed as servants of the Thousand Sons, and living wild beyond their towers, as a result of the Chaos Space MarineLegion's habit of kidnapping mortals. Those that have escaped thralldom to the Sorcerers of the Thousand Sons over the years have since created the 'free' population of the planet, although all these individuals are still slaves to Tzeentch's plans. Amongst these unbonded groups exist the Tzaangors; it is unknown if they originate from Beastmen transplanted to the planet like ordinary humans, or whether they are a result of the mutations so favoured by the planet's patron. Nevertheless, they exist in enough numbers for the Thousand Sons to be able to use them as source from which to recruit the guardians of their Towers. The Thousand Sons appear to value the use of Beastmen in this role and treat them well; few make any attempt to escape and return to the warbands they began life in.
