Here is the first Honour Guard, and a pencil drawing of him:

Watched the clip, very interesting way to present an army.
Everything looked awesome. Can we get some nice detailed pics of those jet bikes and the Primarch?
Any plans to expand on the force? I would be in favor :)

Atman, thanks for that. Will upload some of the jetbike/khan today. Yep I have a speeder and Librarian on its way, as well as a plan for some robots and thudd gun variants. In the further distance I have 3 preds and a proteus LR and obviously lots more bikes

02-12-2011, 10:53
wow...this looks rather promising....and awesome...curious to see more

02-12-2011, 12:03
I'm gonna take the pictures of the Jetbikes this afternoon, but until then, please meet another 2 of the Primarch Honour Guard ('the Hammer' and 'the Bolter'). The Hammer is the Forgeworld Gamesday model, whereas the Bolter is the limited edition Black Templar Drago from a few years back:

Whata great way to show off a well executed army. And to think, 30 days? Really?! Wow!

That is absolutely fantastic/terryfying/amazing

He is my new fave commentator!

Hay Breazer, thanks for that, my blog seems to be mirroring yours (although 10k out)...more to come on my GK pre-heresy......

@Haywire....yep 30days, it was mad....nice to calm down a bit now!!

02-12-2011, 16:18
Here are my allies, 5 Legio Custodes:

@Haywire....yep 30days, it was mad....nice to calm down a bit now!!

Very impressed by the lengths you went to to include early Mks of power armour in your army - especially on the bikes. (This is especially prudent when too many slap a Legio colour scheme on Mk.VII marines and call them 'pre-Heresy'.) And your painting speed? Astounding.

However, I must ask, surely you're not referring to pre-Heresy Grey Knights from your last comment? They were a post-Heresy creation and would be like someone doing 'pre-Age of Strife Adeptus Custodes'!

Fight the good fight against anachronism, my friend. :)

02-12-2011, 17:03
Morden you took my bait, my friend, you are correct, I haven't done pre-Heresy GK, but instead Legio Custodes. I have uploaded photos of them, but as a newbie have to wait for a mod. to confirm the pics are allowed, watch this space for the 5 man Custodes.

Thanks for the comments on the armour, it was hard to do especially on the bikes and jetbikes, but worth it I think. I agree that many do do as you say paint-wise. PreHeresy WS paint scheme is very very similar to postHeresy, so with out the armour it would be little different. Ive also tried to follow the fluff rules with regard to dislike of heavy weapons, dreads, sponsons on preds and other tanks etc.

More to come...

Does anyone know the time scales to get the post with photos up on here. I posted 2 posts yesterday with piccies of some of my army and yet still they are not here? I know as a noob it may take a time but ....

That was a dirty trick. ;) But yes, props for sticking with the fluff so extensively. Many people are tempted to max-out on the more competative Astartes hardware and fly in the face on the established modus operandi of the Legion they're attempting, it's great that you've avoided this pitfall; character counts for a lot in an army.

PS: Why don't you use Photobucket for all your pics? Works for me!

03-12-2011, 10:53
Ok as requested by Atman, here are some photos of the Jetbike squad, including Apoc:

Great army! It's so beautifully painted! :) I follow teplarcrusade on YouTube so I envy you all so much! I say some of the table you all got to work on. I just wish I was able to see this army in person it must be a real treat! Can't wait for more mate.

Best wishes, Gearhart

03-12-2011, 17:00
Gearhart, yep its great and TC01 is doing an amazing job. I got the honour to play against him with his fists and my orks. Was great fun. There is lots lots more to come on the campaign so keep watching his blog

03-12-2011, 17:49
Great work dude, very cool :D

04-12-2011, 00:08

Awesome work! Especially if done in only 30 days!
I know how the 'pre-tournament-painting-rush' feels, as I've been doing the same thing for years myself :P At those times white is not your friend...

What are your plans for this army now that you've got some time? And why you no have pics of Khan in this thread?

04-12-2011, 00:47
Glad to hear we can expect more :D
Thank you for the photo of those jetbikes. They look like mechanical land sharks made of purified epic.
Excited for more of your fine work :)

@Nordic: Its FW from their upgrade pack.

@Residual Selfimage:

Khan will be up tomorrow. I need to base him.

So the first 100pts are:
5 Primarch Honour Guard
10 Man Tactical with Serg with PF
5 man Scout, 4 with Snipers, 1 with heavy Bolter, all with Camo clock
3 Bikes with 1 Assault Bike with Heavy Bolter
5 JetBikes with Sarg with PW

And the Khan (free to me in the campaign (but propbably worth 400-600pts)

I will max up all the squads, so 8 bikes with assault bike, 10 scouts, 20 tactical (part of the rule set we are playing to)

I am going to add:
3-5 Speeder (converted to look old school from the current kits)
a 3part unit of predators (without sponsons)
1 or 2 LR Proteus
A Thudd Gun with Squat Techpriest and a couple of servitors
2 other Thudd variants
a unit of 3-5 Robots with Techmarine
A unit of Terran Marines on Bikes

And then an allied force of:
5 Legio Custode Termies (see above)
1 Gift of the Emperor
1 Custodies Contemptor

I tend to be quite whimsical with my army building so things will change and be added to. Watch this space.

04-12-2011, 14:10
Amazing stuff :)

04-12-2011, 14:40
Love them jetbikes, wher are they from???

04-12-2011, 15:25
@longtimelurker: The jetbikes are from Kromlech (off ebay)
@atman: They are called Iron Shark pattern so good call

A quick update for today, 5 man Scout squad 4 with snipers, 1 with Heavy Bolter (after the photo was taken I added the red lightning motif on the shoulder (minus the gold bar - as per the fluff):

And here is the first of my converted Speeders, reading the fluff, the preHeresy Speeder was more open to the elements, which caused problems and a redesign post Heresy:

Just spent a bit of time dirting up some of my tactical squad, and giving them some battle damage. I'm really please with the attempt and think I will use it for the rest of the squad and probably army:
http://img15.imageshack.us/img15/3439/dscf4288z.jpg (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/15/dscf4288z.jpg/)

I am also starting an assault squad, which I am giving 'Grav Chutes' as fluff wise these were more prevalent in the pre-Heresy era. I was going to use Elysian grav chutes, but fell they are too small for the mighty Space marine. Luckily in a recent swop shop I stumbled on the Bloodangel Sang Guard backpack (minus the wings) which I think work quite well. Also for the walking marine, I attempted my first go at repositioning FW resin. As a result I am able to have my marine in full mark III armour while holding the assult weapons in a reasonable natural pose, I just need to model the other 6 marines for this squad and then find some more Sang Guard jumppaks:

BLUH-DEE-HELL... If you manage to pull-off this armoured Guinness advert... Jesus, incredible GS work and an incredibly ambitous conversion all round. Baited breath.
