Hi all

Yes I'm afraid its another one of those pre heresy armies. In my defence I started this about 2 and a bit years ago, I'm just very very slow at getting things done. Originally I started the army using the current GW plastics and my own home made Fulgrim.
See here:

However once FW released the different marks of armour I switched over to the newer...umm older...newer..you know what I mean. As a theme the army is set just after Fulgrim takes the lear deamon sword and I'm using the Chaos Codex. The reason for this is the deamon prince is the best fit I could find for a Primarch. I'm working towards a 2000pts list which is as follows

Fulgrim (Deamon prince)
Terminator squad x4
Dreadnought (contemptor model)
3 tactical squads, each with rhino
1 Assault squad ~(raptors)
1 Devastator squad (havocs)
Predator
Land Raider
Jet bikes x5 (Chaos bikes)

So here is where I'm at.

Comments and crits welcome.

I have now ordered the contemptor and the remaining jetbikes. So I will get pics up of them as soon as they arrive and are put together. I will also try to get my camera working and get some better pictures up.

The Predator and Rhino upgrades are made by Machinator who frequents this forum. The Land Raider extras are scratch built and the jet bikes are by a company called Kromlech.

My mind is very confused by your tanks. They are new, but look Rogue Trader. Awesome.

As did the tracks for the Land Raider but they are proving to be a bit more difficult to fit than I thought and will take some time before I get pics up

I'm almost done with the raider so I will update with new pics hopefully this weekend. till then here is a filler. Not Emperor's Children but something that's distracted me from them.

My Astral Claws.

It's nice to see this idea being continued, I'll be watching with great interest!

Excellent and thorough use of Heresy-Era equipment. May I ask where you got your helmet crests from?

Keep up the great work! :)

I'm really liking the converted termie champ/lord - excellent posing on what can sometimes be a pretty static model. Converted from Culln I presume?

Using the washes has made a real difference to your purple - looks great!

Yes and no.
I have the worlds un-stickiest blu-tack which made it a pain. However it is such a great model and the way its designed gives you so much room for creating cool poses its worth the effort
