Hello Everyone, you may know me from such threads as Mighty Morphin Power Primarchs and Lucifer's Mostly Ork and some Imperial WIP blog. Well now I've finally made the plunge and chosen a chapter to stick with forever

in the past few months Ive made many 'start-of' blogs, but have never gotten very far. Other than my orks, all my ideas have crashed and burned after a while. Well not this one. Ive held back on posting any images (except for my 'test' model) until I had a lot of work to show, because lots of pretty pics attract more viewers and C&C than just one or two

So, here we go, the start of my Crimson Fists blog

(if anyone reads this while Im uploading pictures, Im posting this first bit before I edit and add pics and descriptions in case I lose anything. Just be patient )

First up is my Scout Squad










All Scouts have free-handed fists on their pads

Termy squad with FW pads






(this guy was too boring so I free handed a fist on his leg )


sorry for all the blurry pics, I'll try to take better ones soon

Next Up is an old captain I painted


My pride and Joy (at the moment) My Standard Bearer. Let me know what you think on the banner please




It says : 'There is Only the Emperor' 'He is Everything' 'Let our Deed be His Will'

Next up, some WIP and teasers
Dready 1

With a scratch build AC

Made from ork loota bits, two ork mines, an ork shoulder pad, the autocannons from the LR sprue, a normal las. arm for a dread, and bits from the Ravenwing sprue (and the chain)

Teasers!




C&C on everything and anything appreciated. Thanks for looking everyone, hope you saw something you liked

Still needs to be painted:

2nd CCW scout squad of 5
shotgun scout squad of 5
6 sniper scouts (5 metal, one plastic)
4 assault marines
and hordes of other stuff

EDIT: oh, and here is the test model I was talking about

Thank you

Im planning on having all the scouts finished before I moved on, then the 4 assault marines for completion, but after that what would everyone like to see?

I have another dread with dual FW autocannon arms, the first dread, LRC, 4 rhinos, 2 R.backs with converted turrets I got from a trade, a pred, an oop metal apoth in wip, 3 oop Thunder Marines with glaives (1 wip), and tons of oop metal termies including a chappy and libby. My sternies and the rest of the command squad minus the champ and apoth are build in progress though

Great freehand work, the shoulders are looking much better than with the transfers.

This is my favority guy: he looks like he's going to smite a defiler/daemon/carnefex/something equally nasty and big

Ambitious banner work, and it turned out well! For text, have you tried a micron pen? I find that I get much better results than painting text.

Keep up the great work!

The scouts trousers were bleached bone, but I thought the grey would work better for my eventual planned urban board and basing

Also, that termy is my favorite as well

Where? in the pictures of my bits everywhere? probably
In the pictures of the marines? no. that fist is iirc part of the new Dev box

Ok, painting a ton of scouts is really boring (they are all like 80% done) so I started painting a dread too.

I made a few experimental army lists, can anyone tell me how they are/ what I should change?

thanks everyone

oh, and the standard bearer now has a plasma gun, pics up when I finish the command squad hes in

really? the assault sarge's fist REALLY looks like the aspiring champ 's...

as for the list, seeming they are not competitive, I'd say go for it! they're all good

It had banners for writing on the fist, so unless the guy I got it from was an epic converter, Im pretty sure its from the dev box. if someone could find a pic of the dev sgt with a powerfist, that would be great

Any suggestion on which list is best?

And all the lists are made of stuff I have/plan on making regardless (ex: the MoTF)

so I could add vindis to other lists or something like that.

actually, after a closer look, the fist isn't the one from the chaos marine box.

the finger is too straight

Hello all, heres an update for you all

I have 10 scouts, the dready, and my command squad all waiting for an ink wash. I still have to finish the sniper scouts, and I have started on some projects.

One of which was my captain. Relic blade, combi melta, and whatever else I give him. tell me what you think




And the other was my MoTF with Conversion Beamer. Any tips for making him look more techy?




C&C appreciated

Wow, whats the Conversion Beamer made out of?

For making him look more techy maybe have a look at the GW version for inspiration?

Keep up the good work!!

I think it's a great start! Lots of convincing bits!

CC: His pose looks a bit unatural, I don't know if you have some spare devastator arms/weapons about that could be cannibalized. Also, I'm not sold on the missle launcher front end. The "beamer" part of the name makes me think less projectile, more las/electric. Have any great bits that look like a lens or conductor?

Good luck!

I made a thread in the p&m section about him and as someone suggested im going to be angling the gun slightly and replacing his left arm

Next up on my wip table is the sniper scouts (about 40% done) and a termy chappy

Ill post progress on the MoTF soon as well

if you noticed my new title update, then you'll know what this post is about. I completely overhauled the MoTF, thinking he looked too small and kinda awkward.

Using termy arms (cut down) and termy legs (waist shaved down) with the old MotF's body, head, and weapon+ backpack, I made this

Let me know what you think



Also, any tips on how to make a robotic stabilizer off the backpack or something? I want to make something that looks like its holding up and supporting the beamer, cause as it is I dont think he could hold it one handed (as badass as it looks, it just seems too heavy )

Also, I'm planning on a tabbard of somesort
