The Black Fists are a chapter that descends directly from the honored Imperial Fists. Sister chapters with the Black Templars and the Crimson Fists, the Black Fists combine both paint schemes of the chapters. The chapter badge comes directly from the Imperial Fists, with crossing triangles in the background represent both the Black Templars and Crimson Fists intertwined in brotherhood.

Founded in the year M37 from a surplus of tactical units, the Black Fists spent five decades training members to be specialized with devastator weaponry and in the form of rapid assault. Although the newly formed chapter had little to no experience in battle, Chapter Master Andre Cortola was soon to remedy that by bringing the Black Fists to battle with the dark treachery of Chaos.

After several incidents, the brothers who performed at a greater level of weaponry skill and tactics, were soon seen as the chapter’s elite. Chapter Master Andre Cortola soon made a point of forming proper companies after seeing initial performance of the marines. Following the strict Codex Astartes, Cortola soon had ten companies at full strength under his command.
Although the chapter closely followed the Codex Astartes, Cortola had put in an extra squad in his elite First Company. By doing so, he had ten extra marines to bolster the attack of the core force. The First would always move as one, soon to be known throughout the chapter and the home systems as Cortola’s Hammer was swift to bring destruction to the enemies of the Holy Emperor.

The chapter itself is a master of siege tactics. No match for the Imperial Fists themselves, the Black Fists have been known to hold citadels under siege for years, eventually flushing out the enemy from within. The commanders of the Black Fists are well versed in tactical planning, rehearsing every movement before it happens.

The Black Fists embrace the Codex Astartes readily, and receive training of all aspects of combat as written by Roboute Guilleman.

Once recruits are selected, their criminal record is examined, and they undergo a battery of tests: musculature, psychological profile, psychic level, eye reflexes, intelligence, the ability to shoot, pain resistance, and dexterity. If they manage to pass that, they face extreme heat, cold, empty space, and any other condition they may face on any warzone. The severity of testing increases along the way. If the initiate passes, he becomes a cadet and the symbol of the Black Fists is marked on his left shoulder. Then begins the indoctrination, training and the actual surgery that will make them Marines. After the initiation ceremony, the cadet's family is informed that their child has become a Space Marine to ensue a matter of pride in the families.

The 1st company always marches together as one, with the Captain of the Company always being the Chapter Master as well. As with the Crimson Fists, it is considered a bad omen to march to battle with less than a full veteran company.

The Black Fists have always had close ties with the Imperium and the Inquisition. They have contributed many warriors to the kill-teams of the Ordo Xenos, being renowned Ork fighters. Many of these kill-team warriors have made their way back into the chapter, and even into the veteran company.


This post was started on August 12, 2009 on Ammobunker Forums and I am now posting it here. I would like to become a frequent member of DakkaDakka. I've heard so much about it, and drop by every once in a while. But I'd like to share my stuff with the friendlies here.
So with my first chapter, The Royal Redeemers, and the most recent, The Sapphire Saints, both have almost failed miserably. In fact, the Sapphire Saints didn't really fail...yet, but I was having a very hard time coming up with a chapter icon. I was surfing the B&C boards, and saw several AMAZING Imperial Fists armies, like Shaw3029 and Inquisitor Engel's. I decided to make my new chapter, the Black Fists, be a successor of them. Obviously by the name, they're a mix between the Black Templars and the Crimson Fists.

The Chapter as of October 4th, 2010

Squad Prometheus.
The members of Sternguard Veteran squad Prometheus have been hand selected by Sergeant Andromedus. Each member has been in the squad for over a century. They have all had extensive training with every weapon in the Space Marine arsenal, though they are highly specialized in all forms melta weaponry more so than any other. As Prometheus was a being of fire, they use the burning might of melta weaponry to take down their foes.

War for Atalcina pt1 wrote:"Brothers, tomorrow we, the venered first of the Black Fists will arrive at Macragge, the honored homeworld of the Ultramarines Chapter to meet with Chaplain Cassius, where we will form up with the Tyranid Hunters to fight against the returning threat of Hive Fleet Leviathan.

Tonight, we must feast. This is the first time in two decades that our entire first company has been together to fight in such a tremendous battle. As one, we will show the Tyranids that they are have no place in this universe. Some of us will not return to this hall by the end of our great crusade, but fear not, as your lives will not be taken in vain!" First Company-Captain Marcus Othello of the Black Fists said aboard the great hall of The Deliverance, one of the three Battlebarges they commanded.

With a mighty cheer, Captain Othello knew that his brothers were ready for war.
~
"Steady brothers, hold fire until I give the command."

The Whirlwind batteries behind the wall of bastions, similar to that of an ancient race that had once tried to block out an invading force from their territory in ancient Terra, launched several salvos of incendiary missiles into the tsunami of Tyranid organisms racing towards them. The Earthshaker Cannons followed suit, launching barrage after barrage over the high armored wall. Screaming missiles and large shells hurled into the huge moving mass, displacing hundreds of terrible organisms with each explosion.

The entire second company of Ultramarines, under the command of Captain Cato Sicarius was formed up in the uppermost level of the bastion wall that fully circled the hive city of Atalcina. Joining them were elements of the first company led by Captain Agemman, veteran Tyranid Hunters led by Chaplain Cassius, and the Lord Macragge himself and his Honor Guard.

Mixed into the Ultramarine force was the entire first company of the Black Fists Chapter. Dwarfed by the hundreds of Space Marines at the ramparts, platoons of Imperial Guardsmen and the Adrian Planetary Defense Force were proudly looking over the battlefield, ready to die for the Immortal Emperor and their home planet. Behind the battle wall sat companies of Imperial Guard armor and Space Marine vehicles, mixed together, read to destroy the Tyranids if they spilled over the wall. Scores of super heavy tanks sat patiently, while the Macharius Vulcans and Stormlord tanks sat, guns at the ready, their Vulcan Megabolters steaming in the early morning chill.

Another several salvos of incendiaries and Earthshaker shells were launched again, one shell hitting the decrepit hull of a Mars Pattern Stormhammer, crawling with Tyranid Warriors. The thousands of gaunts around the hull shuttered as the synapse in that area was disrupted. As a flying Hive Tyrant took the extinguished brood's place, as the wave of gaunts surged forward once more.

"Aim for the leaderbeasts!" Cassius cried out.

With that, several missiles and lascannon shots descended from the ramparts into the Hive Tyrant. With a tremendous scream, the tyrant took every shot. As the smoke from the blast cleared, the Tyrant uncovered itself from behind its wings and let out a mighty roar, everything around it surged forwards at a tremendous speed.

"No… Even our heaviest weaponry can't even take it down…" muttered an Imperial Guardsman.

"Don't worry soldier, we'll take it down." Said Captain Othello to the small man. He turned his attention to one of his Sternguard squads. "On my mark, fire your lascannons at the beast" with an acknowledgement from Sergeant Polonius, Othello told one of the Whirlwind batteries to aim at the Tyrant. As another barrage went over the wall, Othello watched as the tyrant once again covered itself with its wings. As the force of the blasts threw numerous lesser creatures away, the tyrant stood anchored to the dilapidated Stormhammer hull.

As the fires died down, Othello quickly got back on his vox to talk with the Sergeant Polonius.

"Fire the lascannons now!"

As two beams quickly descended from the wall, the tyrant unfurled its wings. It was about to let out another roar of defiance, but it turned into a screech of pain as both beams penetrated right into what would seem to be its chest, and through the hull of the Stormhammer, into the ammo bay, and causing a chain reaction that disintegrated the tank and the tyrant in itself.

As the gaunts in the general vicinity started to swagger, the Imperials on the ramparts heaved a mighty cheer. One of the guardsmen looked up, taking his empty gaze off the smoldering hole.

"Holy Emperor…" he pointed out towards the horizon.

Several gaseous, spider-like shapes could be seen behind the morning sun.

"Hierophants…" Cassius murmured. "The titans of the beast… I hope Legio Ignatum and Invicta can take those down…and we still have a wall of 'Fex's to go through… Holy Emperor, watch over us."

The guardsman looked at the guy next to him and whispered, "And he's supposed to be our faith…"

"I would kill you now, faithless one, but we need every man we can get against these things." Barked Cassius.

War for Atalcina Pt2 wrote:The fighting was intense, thousands of gaunts clawed at the wall, scrambling up just to get a shot to the face by a soldier of the Imperium.

It was not even midday yet. Every hour or so, Space Marine brothers with flame throwers would lean over the wall to use the flaming promethium to clear the mass of dead gaunts piled at the bottom of the wall.

It had only been two hours since the fighting actually started, and yet the soldiers on the wall were already shouting that they were running out of ammo magazines. The Black Fist and Ultramarine brothers were more careful to save their ammo than their Imperial Guard allies. When the opportunity arose, instead of shooting every single gaunt that made its way up the wall, they would instead smash it in the face with the butt of their Bolter.

As a brother or guardsman fell, another marine would pick up the weapon to be set aside for later use. Captain Othello, Captain Sicarius, and Master Calgar were all calling to Atalcina for ammunition reinforcements. Both chapters had taken a large portion of their ammo supply from their home worlds, but yet their supplies were starting to dwindle.

The hive planet of Andrian was worth saving, because besides having a population of over 17 billion, it was classified as a minor forgeworld. While it didn't create titans or space-venturing ships, it created several of its own variants of heavy vehicles. Several large tanks sat with dual battlecannons, fastened to their hulls. Others sporting several large flamestorm cannons mounted on a rotating turret were anchored to heavy ferrocrete blocks near the wall. Not only did the forgeworld produce heavy armor, they also designed small, light missile buggies. For the confrontation with the Tyranids, they replaced the missile launchers with heavy bolters and heavy flamethrowers. The whine of their motors over the grumble of all the idling tanks could be heard as they skirted around waiting for a target.

Looking towards the city, several black specks which where ammunition and promethium trucks could be seen rushing towards them.

The claxons blared suddenly, stating that another wave of gargoyles were approaching. The soldiers on the wall didn't need the claxons though. A large ominous shuddering black cloud was approaching out in the distance.

The Invicta and Ignatum Reaver Engines fired their gatling and laser blasters into the cloud. With the distance from the mass, they were able to take down hundreds with each shot amounting to thousands before the cloud even reached the wall. Then all hell broke loose.

Several guardsmen were picked up by gargoyles to be swung around and thrown towards the assaulting Tyranid wave.

The vulcan megabolters from the Macharius and Stormlords whirred to life as they sputtered death from their barrels. Each slug punching a hole through the cloud of gargoyles.

After several minutes of the swarms attack, the entire mass shuttered as one. There was a screech among the masses of gaunts and gargoyles. The entire wave turned around and burst into the foliage from which they came.

To a great confusion of the Imperial forcers on the wall, the Tyranids had disappeared as quickly as they had arrived. Confused, brothers and guardsmen alike were murmuring amongst each other, wondering what had just happened. Captain Othello and Master Calgar immediately started shouting out orders to repair weapons and drag the dead away. The brothers with the flamethrowers made sure to clear the outer wall before refueling with the trucks that had arrived from the city. The atmosphere turned from scared chaos into confident tension.

Engineers ventured out along the outer bastion wall to plant trigger-timed melta bombs into the acid soaked soil. They were to be triggered when the large beasts appeared, hopefully timed to correctly to detonate at the best moment.

Master Calgar and Captain Othello received word that a large element of the Imperial Navy's airforce had arrived. Several wings of Thunderbolt fighters and Marauder bombers and destroyers were ready to assist in the battle, each being loaded with

A question about the fluff. They have markings to represent two of the other Imperial Fists successor chapters, does that mean that their gene seed came from those chapters as well and not just the Imperial Fists chapter itself?

Thank you Cadbren.
Really, the Imperial Fists and Crimson Fists have the same icon. But I couldn't help that. The Crimson Fists and Black Templar are two venerated successor chapters of the Imperial Fists. And I guess I felt the needed to be recognized on the banner as well.
The chapter descends directly from the Imperial Fists.

Thanks Element206. The Land Raider is something I've been working on for over a year. Or at least...thats when I started the thread for it.

WOW! Moved to page 2 of Blogs already!? Geez!


So I glued the top piece on.

And man...those layers I was complaining about..what an eye sore.

So I very slowly cut them off, took quite a while, but it actually wasn't tedious. I was pretty excited to be at the moment where its all fine detailing now.

And thanks to Green Putty.

And helping my dad at our apartment rentals. I was able to fill all the gaps left by the cuts. My father taught me how to patch holes in walls and stuff, using a putty spatula. So I did the same thing with an extra piece of plasticard. The Green Putty fills the gaps, then I screech it off, and its left in all the spots that aren't flat. Once it dried (2 minutes) I sanded it down with 600 grit sand paper.


My next task is now angling all the top plasticard to have the beveled edge of the Land Raider.


I have a lot to do... -_-

While I'm here, what do you think about this? I'm thinking that the fists may be a tad large for the launchers, but I want some advice. I could always replace some skulls with them instead.




AND! While I'm here, I'm looking for 4 of these EXACT thunderhammers. (Maybe you can see where I'm going with this )


AND! 2 of these Storm Shields. (Maybe you can see with this too, but more vague. )


And...2 of these as well.

Well, I finally decided to finish Telion. It was actually pretty difficult :( I don't like the arm placements at all, but I have no ideas on how to fix them! His left arm seems to be at an awkward angle (and his left hand seems huge (Its a SM arm, thats why -_- )) and his right arm seems to be pointing down funny...
But I am REALLY happy with the beard. When I went to take the pictures, I smooshed half of it with my thumb...I was sad...but it wasn't super hard to redo.

I don't think the fist emblem works that well, can you cut off some of the bottom so that it doesn't hang over the lower edge of his armour so much? The rest looks good, nice to see a Telion with hair on top of his head; the bald look bugs me for some reason.

Well guys...I hate to be the lame-o who doesn't get anything done, so I tried to start and hopefully finish another vanguard squad tonight...but I just couldn't do it.
After a half hour of de-flashing 10 legs, 20 pieces of torso, and 20 pieces of backpack...I just couldn't get the urge to do anything.
But I managed to put one together, half...and two HORRIBLY static guys... I realized that the extra 2 running legs are on the dead dude, and one of the Death Company... :( So they're as static as can be..and rushed...


Hopefully I'll work up the courage to finish them tomorrow (I have to start studying for finals) and maybe even work on the Exterminus...

I'm really good with the ADD (I don't really have it, I just multitask..a lot) and so I've been flipping through Index Astartes I-IV and also Insignum Astartes. And have decided to make my veterans actually have some veteran markings. I like what I've done with them, but I'm not sure if its enough or too much.
I'd like to add some crusade checkers, like if they worked in concert with Black Templars or Ultramarines or something like that.

So this update is thanks to Sachiel for his always genius ideas. He recommended that I add the side banners to make them pop out a bit, so its not just a singular flat surface. So after trading a couple of PMs yesterday and today to clear some things, I worked them out. I like how they came out, the left one not so much, but the right one definitely.

And a little bit of hang-y:


I'll spray them up, then glue them on, then paint them. I'm also thinking of doing something similar to the banner piece on the top too, I'll figure something out.
Thanks Sachiel

Thanks Wolfshadow, Sachiel's idea.

Well, here are the promised WIPs. I added some depth to the top banner as well.


It will be cleaned up, don't worry. I'm waiting for it to dry.

And the newest project... My linebreaker squadron. Originally Dark Angels, I figured they could be redone in Black Fist colors for merit.



Keeping the tank name banners to replace them on the newly painted tanks.


To now:

They were supposed to get a spray today, but the girlfriend picked me up from school, so was over for 7 hours of my day..so tomorrow. (Class was canceled, so I don't have to go until 2, which is just to take a test, and then come home )

I realize that I now only have 2 of those circle icons left, and 4 of the lone fists...so...Milliput, here I come.
Also, I have received friendship from Mikhail of BolterandChainsword, who is shipping me a few fist icons and bitz as well. Also meeting the Milliput.
Also...I have scored several bitz orders from eBay. In the form of awesomness. so Sternguard assembly shall resume soon...hopefully after the Vanguard that haven't made any headway lately... -_-
[hr]Well, I'm sure you remember these two static guys.


Instead of cutting them up and repositioning them. I took the lazy rode, and just gave them different arms... :p


But...if you don't put them next to each other, they don't look so pathetic.



Yep, thats right. I churned out 10 marines in about 2 hours. (Sans heads and shoulderpads) I think that these fellows turned out okay. Not super actiony, but not stating either.
Sachiel wrote:Head down, shoulder barging througha door or enemy squad, i always imagined marines as being almost like tanks on legs so they'd be able to crush enemies out of their way with their own bulk and the bulk of the power armour.

Sachiel, the guy in the first group pic, second from the right. Hes the one with the pose. I tried to do it as best I could with something bigger than a normal arm.

And, if you look in the picture of the two dudes with the whips, you may see a thin strand of greenstuff. Thats for redoing sergeant big-o.


And of course...once again..I am out of 30mm bases...drat...
