So... been painting up an IF army for a few years on and off, due to current circumstances they're all sat in boxes unappreciated and out of the fight :(

Figured I'd register on here and share them with the world! I'll try to keep adding to this as I get more pictures done, and I still have some models (like a Thunderhawk...) to get finished off. So without further ado:

8th Company Captain on Bike and his Command Squad:
(Captain has plasma pistol & relic blade. The command squad consists of an Apothecary and four Veterans on bikes, each with Thunder Hammer, Storm Shield and Plasma Gun)









Land Raider Ares (Conversion)



Land Raider Executioner (Conversion)



Land Raider Crusader variant (Conversion)


Land Raider Terminus Ultra (Modified slightly so all the guns can point forwards...)



Modified Stormraven Gunship (didn't like the big box on the back...)



Predator IV

Hmm... some of these pics haven't come out so well (Winter sun plus yellow paint scheme is a bad thing).

Interestingly, a lot of my IF are very slightly different shades, due to them being painted under different light. I like it as it gives the army a slightly 'worn' feel, but anyone wanting to paint an IF army and have all the yellow turn out the same might want to bear this in mind...

The army's banners work thusly: Captains have a quartered design, with the Chapter Badge, the Company Number and Colour, and some miscellaneous honours (Iron Halo etc). For the squad sergeants, the banner is much simpler - a plain background in the Company Colour, with the Company Number, Squad Number and occasionally an honour badge. The overall idea is that the banners are uniform in design across the army. I need to practise freehand more before attempting a Company Banner!

Anyway, onward:

Thunderfire Cannon


Terminator Squad. I need to re-do the Sergeant's banner at some point to match the (more basic but better-looking) designs that the rest of the army has on it's Sergeants.


Captain of the 1st Company. You know who he is


8th Company Land Speeders (Forge World transfer sheets... YES!)


8th Company Bike (Tactical) Squad I


8th Company Bike (Tactical) Squad II. The shadow of a crazy man with a thunder hammer that you can see on the left of the photo is a member of my lunatic 10-man TH SS Vanguard (on foot) squad.


3rd Company Captain and Librarian

You sure like Thunder Hammers. O_o

Nice, very nice. The yellow seems solid. Maybe a bit thick, but that could be the camera too. No complaints though. Everything is shiny and killer. Geez, full squads of TH/SS? On bikes AND Jump Packs? Crazy, crazy man. Perfect Fist. XD

The correct question is, would I be enjoying this hobby if I did this?

The correct audience is you.

Thunder Hammers and Storm Shields are what the Codex Astartes tells you to do in the section, "How to deal with shiny people armed with Initiative 6 Power Weapon Instant Death Wondersticks 101". The hurricane plasma guns and Executioner cannon Land Raiders... same section, Appendix 1.

'Hurricane' pattern Predator built just after the Stormraven Gunship was released and I discovered the hurricane bolters were SUCH a nice fit...


Mk.I Predator I found cheap on eBay and repaired/repainted. Still looking for the Mk.IIs!

Dreadnought with twin-linked autocannons


MORE Land Raiders of various patterns

As you wish.... However, the combination of grey carpet, yellow paint and camera flash has done some slightly odd things with the colours...






EDIT: For comparison, check out my gallery or scroll up to the Terminus pictures... the yellows look totally different depending on camera and the type of lighting! The actual colour is probably somewhere between the two.

Small update, I got some more infantry finished off today and also re-did the picture of the guys with jump packs:
Darkness, electric lighting and camera flash have messed with the yellow again. This army is a different colour every time I see it, I'm sure...

Sternguard Veterans


Vanguard Veterans with Jump Packs

Hey man I really like the color scheme. I think my favorite models are the bikes (There's too many cool models to choose from!).

I admire your dedication to the Imperial Fists! Sweet army.
