Hi, I would like to share my pandemic effort.
For me, WH40k started with WD235(July 1999) and battle report Orks vs Crimson Fists. I loved it and read it countless times.
I couldn't decide which army I want more. 6 years ago I decided to start an Ork army and managed to paint over 5k of the greenskinz.
Now, after over 20 years, I decided that with the 9th edition I will build a Crimson Fists.
I hope You will like it.

Whole army:

And now Units.
Squad Dominus

Squad Castro

Squad Ardite

Squad Amnito

Squad Damas

Squad Morrelis

Squad Boras

Lieutenant Raphael, Ancient Javier, lieutenant Agaston

Captain Drakken

Looks really good. My only nitpick is that the Captain and the Blade Guard should have both hands be Red.

Great looking army! Very motivating.

Glory is fleeting, but obscurity lasts forever.

Considering also your duty as a warrior you should not waver. Because there is nothing more auspicious for a warrior than a righteous war.

Looks absolutely great! How did you paint the blue armours? I'm about to start painting my own SM army, and could use some tips.

Nice, with lots of attention to details. Your bases ties it all together really well. At first I wasn't sure about the colored rims, but I think it works pretty well here.

I have a second army - Orks and a lot of desert terrains and desert mats. Black trims do not look good there.
Besides that - when that "black trim" originate from?

Santiago Judicar

Been Around the Block

Brother Santiago walked through the battlefield, his gaze fixed. A storm of bullets and strange energies raged all around him, explosions ripping the earth asunder, throwing clouds of dust into the air. He cared not.
He walked past his Brothers, who wielded combat knives and chainswords in fierce combat against their most hated enemy: the filthy greenskins.
Their monsters’ stench was overwhelming, their screams loud as thunder strikes.
But he didn't care.
He was close. He didn't lose focus on his prey even for a second. He was analyzing, looking for every weak spot in his victim’s armour, every failing in his fighting style. When Santiago reached him, he already knew how the fight would play out. Every move was already planned so that all that remained was their execution.
The Judicar drew his bolt pistol and fired a single round into the beast’s back, just to get its attention and provoke it to act. He knew that its armour was too thick to be penetrated by anything less than a melta-based weapon.
The ork was huge enough to dwarf a dreadnought. He was covered in layers upon layers of thick scrap armour. One of his arms has been replaced with a power klaw, which sent sparks flying as it did its work. The second sported an array of guns, all spitting fire.
The beast moved much faster than its size would suggest. It lifted his claw and swung with full force - a blow that could easily demolish a tank. Santiago waited till the last second and spun away, swinging his sword over his head to add momentum to the force of his own blow. He cut the power klaw off from the ork’s arm just above the elbow. The greenskin roared with anger and tried to crush the space marine with a wild swing of his second arm. The Judicar ducked the blow, which gave him the opening he had been waiting for. A piece of neck armour with a rusty weld became exposed. Santiago dashed forward with his blade raised high. It fell lightning-fast and decapitated the greenskin. The beast’s massive bulk hit the ground hard. The lesser ones of its kind panicked when they saw their leader killed and started to flee. It mattered not, for the marines of the Crimson Fists chapter knew no such thing as mercy and butchered them all regardless.
For the Emperor. For Dorn. For Rynn.
