A nameless terminator of the Khorne warband. He was once a warrior capable of impressive tactics and foresight, however after being on the wrong end of a heavy flamer, He was barbecued alive in his armor, the burning promethium that poured over him had left him as near dead and destroyed in both body and mind. The dark Mechanus toiled for weeks to restore his body. Nicknamed “The beast of Khorne” He is chained to the bulkheads in between battles. Once on the battlefield however, he slips into a semblance of clarity, fighting with as much skill as ever, In the battles he is alive again, and he dreads the end of the battle where his mind will once again slip into the bestial state.
More Imperial Fists, this time a second Rapier to go with the first. I’ve found the rapiers to be an economical way of adding more heavy firepower to my forces, and I must say I like heavy firepower. Let me know your thoughts?
It seems that I didn’t take very many pictures of this squad, but here is the second of my 20 man Siege Breacher squads. Armed with boltguns like the other squad. With the two squads I am able to run a rather decent “Stone Gauntlet” list thanks to the rules in Horus Heresy Book 3. With these models painted I’m over 100 Imperial Fists painted, which is a huge milestone for me because I have never had an army get this big before. I’m excited to continue working on the models, and I look forward to sharing more with you as they are finished. Look forward to More Imperial Fists and more Khorne as well!
Sometimes additional firepower is a must when the Astartes must take the field, and in lieu of heavy vehicles, the Rapier weapons platform has found a role in tight quarters. The rapier’s Laser destroyer is a proven weapon that is capable of burning through a bulkhead door, or through enemy armor. Accompanying the rapier, as one of it’s crewmen, Brother Castor carries an auspex, his near paranoid review of it’s readings having denied foes the benefit of ambush more than once, as well as allowing the rapier to incinerate foes hiding behind debris.
I’ve posted a mix of things, some pictures that have character story added, and others that are just the pictures of the miniatures with some basic information about what the figures are. Which do you prefer/which would you like to see more of?
So I had just finished painting up the last of the 40 Tactical Marines when lo and behold Forge world comes out with book three and the Imperial Fists rules.
I present to you the first of two 20 man Siege Breacher Squads. Armed with the boltgun and a boarding shield, these marines stride fearlessly into battle. With hardened armor to protect them from the cold embrace of the void, or the chemical death of many weapons, there is little that can hope to shift them from their position, or deny them an advance.
Sometimes live gives you lemons, sometimes things get frustrating, sometimes you just BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD, SKULLS FOR THE SKULL THRONE.
I’ve been doing large batch painting for long enough that it was almost odd to paint a single figure at once. It definitely feels like it takes longer when you have to wait for things to dry instead of skipping right to the next figure. All in all I am really pleased with how this model came out, though I may make a couple changes to it over time. I tried out the new Agrellan Earth and Blood for the Blood God paints, both have their uses, and I look forward to more experimenting with them in the future. Now a challenge for you all.
Can any of you name all the kits that went into this model?
One more heavily work in progress item to join my forces. This piece of hardware is waiting for now on me managing to get some parts to finish it off. Once I have the parts though it should be good to go.
Alright, so I’m out of finished products to post for the time being, but I figured I would post what is on my work bench. Who can name what all I’m working on. I wish you all luck.
Are you up to the challenge?
The first entirely new squad, my heavy support squad. Their lascannons reach out like the talons of the Aquila, rending fortifications and tanks asunder. I really need to figure out some decals or something though because the bare shoulders are getting to me. The standard GW ones are too big and the Forgeworld ones cost quite a bit. Any suggestions?
