Those terminators... wow

Also are the "twins" inquisitor scale assasins?

I love the paint scheme! The purple is a nice alternative to pink. How much do you think the whole army cost to put together? I play marines and I would have a hard time lasting more than a few turns against that horde!

The Twins are indeed inquisitor assassins. The lighter one using Belakor's wings and the Avatar's hair, the darker one uses Morathi's horse's wings and hair.

The cost of the army? I have no idea. I bitz ordered all the sonic stuff and shoulder pads before they made them into bitz packs, so that's a good few dollars in pads and guns alone. I find it best not to think about the answers to questions like this

Your right RedBeard! I should not think about the cost!

First of all awesome army. i am just getting into 40k and I have decided to paint a emperor's children army (after stripping my guys three times)
I was wondering how did you get that purple to come out so nicely?

All very nice - I particularly like the Terminators and tank iconography. The Inquisitor models as Daemon Princes are a great idea - I've seen many Inquisitor models used this way...
The Belakor-based model doesn't quite sit right with me though... It's either the sword or the wings. Either way, your paintwork and uniformity is supreme as usual, and more than makes up for my perceived petty issues.

The sink.

I love the nice purple color, especially on the soulgrinder in your demon army. I wouldn't mind seeing pictures of your other demon armies.

Looks great this, I've been toying with doing a Emperors Children army in purple and pink but this puts the nail in the coffin!

That looks amazing :O

Yeah, I have to agree that the particular shade of purple you have going there really gives the army a unique and very crisp color on the board, very nice!

I agrre with Generalstoner, Awesome shade of purple, really crisp and helps define the model.
Awesome job!
love the capes on the termies too.

T'zeentch is the Changer of Ways, and win or lose, it is all but a part of the greater game, in which he is the king, and mortals are but pawns....

I really liked it, color scheme is quiet nice and design also. It was great idea to build DPs from assassin twins.

Really liked the color scheme. Pre-Heresy? The bases are cool too, no pun intended.
