Greeting all,

A few months ago, while waiting to collect the final bitz for my Angels of Vigilance, I started another Space Marine army. Highly devoted to the God-Emperor, they seek to convert the godless masses of the Universe.

Here is what I have so far:

Terminators


Tactical Marines


Terminator Librarian


Dreadnought


Current WIPs

Captain


Beliel/Chapter Master


Dreadnought

I apologize for the huge amount of pics, but I've been working on them for the past few months and forgot to make a blog on this site. I will post more background and the like as I think of it.

Until then,

SoG

I can't help but think that the librarian needs a little bit of purple?

Everyone: No.

Nice captain WIP, I take it he is a converted Sicarius?

@P4NC4K3: It is indeed Sicarius.

Chapter Badge: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v334/Khrangar/DSCF0638.jpg in gold.

Here's everything I have written so far about the Emperor's Word.
Background wise I want them to be devout and perhaps spread their gospel. I figure since I'll be using both the double headed aquila and the skull one, that it'll be the two paths the potential convertees can choose. The Emperor, the regular aquila, or death, the skull headed one. This option, of course, if only for humans, and any xenos they face automatically get the 2nd option. Since they will be devoutly religious to the Emperor, they'll be called 'The Emperor's Word' and follow the codex.


Other information:
Primarch: Dorn - will be similar to BTs, but perhaps more zealous?
Home Planet: None - Fleet Based
Founding: M38... 23rd Founding.

They could have been originally formed from a core of templars who found them to be too lax in their beliefs and decided to form their own chapter. Kinda like how the Puritans formed.

They deviate from the standard markings in that they keep the central colour of their armour, bone, and show their rank/designation on the arms as I wanted them to put less importance on things such as titles and ranks. I can't, however, figure out a good reason why they don't change the bone in their armour other than it's holy.

Examples:
Standard Marine/Commander: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v334/Khr...spacemarine.jpg
Librarian: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v334/Khr...pacemarine5.jpg
Chaplain: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v334/Khr...cemarine1-1.jpg
Techmarine: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v334/Khr...pacemarine2.jpg
Apothecary: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v334/Khr...cemarine0-1.jpg

As for religion and how they view the Emperor, I think I want do to both actually. They will have the God-Emperor view that the Ecclesiarchy have but before they are inducted into the 1st Company, they are told the truth about the Emperor, and if they accept this, then they are inducted, but if not, they are turned into drones/servitors or something of that nature.

Battle cry 1.0: "Heed His word, or feel His wrath"

That's about all I have so far.

I've thought of doing a deathwing contingent of the Emperor's Word, but not straight deathwing.

Awesome job so far. I like the purple arms, what's your recipe for the light purple highlights? Overall excellent painting

@Lint: The highlights are just white added to Liche Purple in small amounts, nothing fancy.

@grey_death: Thanks.

I hope to get more of these guys painted up in the coming week. We've been having a bit of a cold spell so priming hasn't been possible.

Updates shortly.

I managed to finish the Chapter Master/Beliel stand in today. The blending on the cape isn't that great, I think, but it'll do for now. I may redo it later on.

After a long hiatus, I have returned again to the Emperor's Word. I've been meaning to do this for a while but haven't gotten around to it.

I've begun to model my Kantor Counts-as and this is what I have so far.



Which head do you prefer? Alternatively I have Sicarius' bare head.





Probably the only bannered back pack for the army.

Next Special Character I'll probably do is Shrike using the Wolf Guard with Lightning Claws and an Assault Squad Culln to make it Mk4 armour.

Hopefully I'll start painting this guy soon.

I managed to get this guy about 99% finished in terms of modeling. I still may add a laser sight to the storm bolter but other than that he's finished.
