Great work on the tank, especially the rivers. The work pays off in the end. How about doing a less seen chapter like the Scars or Salamanders?

Wow, that beast of a tank is superb! Can't wait to see it painted. Which Legion is it destined for?

As for the new force, how about the Iron Hands? They're actually dead easy to paint in a similar style to the AL you mentioned your opponent is doing; just prime them black, drybrush/zenithal airbrush silver, throw down 2 black washes, add markings and weathering, Ferrus's your uncle, Fulgrim's your aunt, you're done! Having done a good portion of my BaC stuff that way, it looks way better than it arguably should for the effort involved.

Thank you for the kind words gents.

As for the suggestions of sallies/scars/boys of ferrus, well.. thing is I never fancied those legions one bit I am afraid.

As for the Stormlord, it will go with the BaC-box and form the new army.

See, the first, the Legion force, is a veteran-tactical based zone-mortalis force, and as such quite small. The second is an iteration of the XIXth legion formed of unification war veterans and Terran recruits with a distinct early-crusade disposition: MK II Warplate, volkite chargers as the standard arms rather than the terran bolter. A drop pod / infiltration force with a low model count.

This third host will be centered around the idea of late era Legion warfare, mass-deployment of tactical squads either on foot or as an armored spearhead, the army's backbone will be three, fully kitted, 20-man tactical squads an a 10-strong cataphractii unit.
I am thinking a siege-assault formation, a linebreaker company specializing in fixed-point assaults, the unit that is called up to lead forlorn hopes against fortress gates, breach trenchlines to strike at hostile macro-emplacements at the enemy's rear and run search-and-destroy sweeps through contested hab-blocs and wards.

In short, the poor, bloody infantry. No specialists or fancy tactics, just bolters, knives and bodies, and when the fire gets too thick: call up the cataphracts to wade through it while the regulars outflank and give what covering fire possible.


I know what you'd say.. "why not iron warriors?" yes. well, I don't want a stereotypical force here, and more importantly: I don't want to paint a vast sea of metallics (or yellow) but somthing more colourful.

I think I will settle for the IXth Legion, otherwise I'd have to do loyalist sons of horus and where is the fun in that?

Oh, tehy're fresh from batchpainting the red and with all other details blocked in black primer, once the metallics, leather and transfers ar in place they will be heavily weathered.
Scratches, oilwashes, graphite rubbings and pigments: the whole nine yards! (finally gonna put into practice all the stuff I have been testing from FW's Masterclass books.)

I never liked the clear bright red they stuck the BA with in 40k, I am going for more of an umber tone, a bit more.. well. dark I guess.

Wow, I have really neglected to update here.

I made another tank.
Salvageing an age-old shadowsword that was quite litterally collecting dust in a box, freshening it up with a new gun and som additional detail.

A lick of paint and it will serve it's new Legion well, also, since there is no rules for huge volkite-cannons I'll be running this one as a fancy Legion Stormblade.



How the gun was made (with insanity, joy and lots of weapons-grade coffee):












After this I went on a bit of track and forgot to take pictures, this is the near-finished product though, at this stage it just lacks a heap of rivets and some other minor details but since I just primed it black.. well.. you'll just have to wait until it's painted I guess, while it's black you can't take pics worth a damn.

So, after an (extended) break from the hobby I got a new boost of both inspiration and time (especially time, wich has been an issue) and acctually painted something.

I also kitbasched a squad of Destroyers for my nomads in the desperate hope that FW will soon revisit their rules and make them woth the humongous load of points they currently cost.

Taking pictures I also remembered why I needed a lightbox. Anyone know a good one?

Ancient Autarion


MK IV Ironform, the Black Fury, firstborn of the Legion, known as the War Crow




"-Veteran of the unification wars, once-captian of the 2nd Breacher company and one of the few who walked away form the Jovian campaign

with all limbs still attached, Captain Autarion met his first death on the void-decks of Peshawar Station orbiting Karnak, in the 53d year of

the Great Crusade. Mortally wounded by a Khrave eviscerator-fusil, his left side shredded by hundreds of adamantium micro-darts.

Following his ascent to a hallowed ironform, Autarion continued to operate in his favoured theatre of war, boarding actions, urban assaults and

other Zone Mortalis operations with distinction, often in direct support of the Legions Destroyer formations."
