So ive decided to start up my favourite space marine chapter again, the chapter which got me into 40k over 20 years ago when i saw them in the Rynn`s world battle report against the Orks back in 3rd edition. I instantly loved the colour scheme and of the image of forlorn defenders fighting insurmountable odds. I originally collected Crimson Fists when i was about 15 years old and and managed to actually field fully painted force of them for a few tournaments which i was proud of as a teenager.
I had a long break from the hobby when i went off to join the military but now in the past year ive got back into it in my local area and built up 2k of Deathwatch but i have always had my eye on my first love the Crimson Fists and now ive taken the plunge.

So far ive set aside a few models i had left from Dark Imperium and a couple of marines from the first issue of Conquest to make a killteam, this is also supplemented by a couple of Sniper scouts i fished out from my parents garage! Ive also gone a bit mental and ordered the Imperial Fist supremacy force which ive had my eye on for a while and cant wait to get into them!!

Update as of January 10th 2019


Onto the pics!

Brother Menendez of the 4th Company

Sergeant Sejanus

These boys will face my friends drukhari in a kill team game on Saturday so we shall see how they fare. I'll try to take pictures and get them on here!

For Dorn!!!

Alright then chaps I've been slowly working on my crimson fists. I've made a decision of the direction I want to go down with the background of the army now and after re reading the novel "Rynns world" I will be building my crimson fists as the 4th company lead by none other than Alessio Cortez himself. The but in Rynns world where he takes on a warboss and then rips his spine out is just too cool.

In terms of Xmas ...well I got a lovely present which I had vindicated buying but luckily it was under the tree for me!

This will obviously be the ideal starting point for my budding force as well as 10 intercessors and 3 hellblasters I had lying around. So the total number of bodies I have ready to paint and build at...
1 primaris captain (which will be converted to be Alessio Cortez)
1 primaris librarian
20 intercessors
8 hellblasters
3 aggressors
1 Redemptorist redemptor dread

So a fairly large force to start off with, this will take me a good few months to get through and in order to get them on the table I'll be fielding then as a second battalion next to my scythes of the emperor.

So here are brother Menendez and my sergeant as part of a combined kill team with a few of my scythes of the emperor. For some reason the crimson fists were continually targeted over the guys with bright yellow armour!!

And finally here I am yesterday back at painting after xmas, hopefully have the first 5 done in a few days!

Right I’m a little bit in love with how you’ve used the classic iconic helmet of space marines that we all know and love and combined with the new better proportioned primaris body on this guy. Basically true scale marines we all wanted right?

Ryns world was the first 40k novel I ever read and it’s a bit of the fluff I love coming back to.

Looking great - keep posting.

Hello once again I've got a small update for my crimson fists as for the first time since before Xmas I managed to get more than an hour to sit down and paint!

@jac_boj thanks for the kind words mate I'm pleased you like them so far!

Here is Brother Galius the latest member of the squad.

Pretty pleased with them so far, like I said I will be drilling barrels once the first 5 marines are fully painted! I haven't really got much else to add apart from a quick WIP pic from the other 2 battle brothers!

Ok so I've been working away on my crimson fists and managed to get the first 5 intercessors completely done and dusted!! The only things I may add is some more Tufts on the bases and drill the barrels but they are basically finished now and I'm pleased with the results. Here are some pictures.

And a couple more individual pics that haven't already been posted.

Brother Harkus

Brother Velez

So I'm quite pleased at how they've turned out and now the first squad is actually finished I can move onto the main man himself which of course is Alessio Cortez the commander of the 4th company!

For Cortez I used the primaris captain sprue from the Imperial fists set and lopped off his arm to add his power fist (as all true soon of Dorn should have) I also then chopped off the boltgun to add his customary bolt pistol which he so loves! I decided to not put a cloak on him as I don't think it suits his rough and ready aggressive character.

I thought an old marine helmet would be best for him as a touchstone to his roots and I also think the old helmets are very cool.

Hope you enjoy.

Right so I've been working away on captain Cortez and I'm pleased to say that he is now finished. Equipped with a power fist and his legendary bolt pistol he had emerged from the Rubicon Primaris to once again lead the 4th company into battle!

Here he is with the first combat team of the company leading the way for those who will shortly follow in his footsteps. Next up I've started building 3 aggressors who will be undercoated and basecoated later on today.

In other news due to GW price hike on paints in to the opportunity to order myself a full range of blue paint and sons khorne red to adjust how I do the crimson parts on the models.

That's all for now chaps I'll be back soon with more crimson goodness.

And so my paint brushes have been in furious action once again as my Imperial fist force box set has been delved into once again. My choice of unit this time was the aggressors. I decided that they would have to be veterans as I wanted to paint booth gauntlets crimson.

After an online re stock of lothern blue I got to work and to be honest I absolutely hated building them and the bolter feeds were a nightmare for me because I very stupidly clipped them all off the sprue without even checking which ones went together! Eventually though I got there and here they are.

Very happy with how they came out actually and next up will be a single inceptor who will bolt into the squad for use in my death watch force so I can use these guys without having to actually finish the entire force off first!

After that I'm thinking of going big... The redemptor!

Here's a quick shot of everyone so far.

Update : another upload from me, I have finished the absolutely epic model that is the redemptor dread. I wanted to finish him off for a game that I have tonight at a local club and add him to my force. So here he is!

Brother Amadon of the 4th company was recruited from the world of Badlanding. In the Rynn system the planet was overrun and captured by orks when Waaagh Snagrod hit. after the reclamation of the planet by a combined crimson fist and rynns guard task force several years later work was begun to revitalise the outpost.

Brother Amadon had served in the 4th company for only 50 years after his elevation to a full battle brother when he was struck down by Heretic Astartes. Showing great promise and of a compatibility with the redemptor chassis, brother Amadon was able to continue serving his beloved chapter.

Looking good so far. Is that a repose of the easy build redemptor? If so it is really well done, bravo.

No it's the normal redemptor kit but I did make a few cuts and adjustments to get him into a more punchy pose! Thanks for the his feedback.
