View Full Version : Pre-Heresy White Scars

04-04-2007, 12:11
Hey, I'm the flash, and I'm going to do the White scars for the pre - heresy tale of four gamers.
I'm still thinking about the list but I got a basic idea of a solid core of bikers, who will move into shooting range, then fire their twin linked bolters for a turn or two, then charge the enemy after they are softend up.
I'm thinking about an assualt squad in a rhino and a bunch of terminators, but when my army list is finished, I will post it so I can get your oppinions.

Modelling wise, I'm going for normal bikes with some converted pre heresy torsos and heads and stuff. I will try to make them look Asian(mostly Russian/Mongolian/Tibetan). Maybe some jetbikes as a bodyguard for my hero.
My display board will be a steppe, with dried grass, some Yurts and maybe a shrine or small temple (all mongolian/tibet style) and in a corner some enemys thowards some Space marines are charging/shooting.
I already have a lot of space wolves sprues, space marine sprues and a rhino, a land raider, a land speeder, and 4 bikes. I'm thinking about buying a ravenwing battalion because of the large amount of bikes.
For the painting, my airbrush will do the most work, spraying al the marines black, then grey and then white. I want to go for heavy weathering. Much paint chips and much mud, dust and dirt.
So, i have a long road a head. I better get planning and army-list writing.

P.S. Is it for sure that the white scars did already have acces to normal bikes?

Ok, I already have confirmation about the bikes.

They look the same to me as the post-heresy bikes.

But an other question came up. I can't use multi melta's, but are meltagun's allowed in a pre-heresy army?

04-04-2007, 15:32
OK, i've been modelling. Now ready are:
-3 bikers
-2 tactical marines

This sound sinteresting, will be cool to see some pre-heresy guys on bikes. Are the colours pretty much the same as they are now?

Are you using the normal marine codex with traits to get the amount of bikes you need?

@ KayvaanShrike: Yes, plus minus same collors. And yes, I'm thinking of using Be swift as the wind and Trust your battle brothers, altough No Mercy, No respite in place of Trust your battle brothers would be suited to.

Anyone sugestions how to make a power lance?

So, now I have a list where I'm pleased with, I know what to build and buy.

First, the army list, wich is very bike heavy:

-Be swift as the wind
-Trust your battle brothers
-Flesh over steel


Bike squadron (elite) (241)
5 bikers
furious assualt
Atack bike

Bike squadron (elite) (260)
5 bikes
tank hunter
2 * meltagun
atack bike with multi melta

5 bikers (230)
expert riders
Atack bike

5 bikers (180)
expert riders

5 scout bikers (125)

terminator squad (245)
5 terminators
assualt canon
2 chain fists
furious charge

2 atack bikes (100)

Then, the to build and paint list.
To Build:
-Chaplain on bike
-5 Furious assualt bikes (this will probarly be jetbikes)
-furious assualt atack bike
-5 Tank hunter bikes
-tank huner atack bike
-7 Bikers
-5 scout bikers
-5 terminators
-2 atack bikes
To Paint:
-3 bikers

I will also post a small plan of the display base.
I want to make some scouts, tactical marines, assualt marinesand maybe some devastators or something, but that isn't included in the army list, so I want to get the army list finished first.
I'll try to put some pic's online when i make them.

From the pictures it looks as though the bikes are actually closer to Chaos bikes (http://www.angelfire.com/co4/chaos4/MVC-002S.JPG) - they lack the armor plating over the front wheel. Good luck with this, hope to see some pictures soon!

THe pic's:
A guy with dreadlocks, might redo the dreadlocks
A bad sculpted helmet, I already redid him.
Two pic's of an agresive biker with custom torso and Exotic blade.

The redone helmet
Another torso, wich is ready for a bike.
The space wolves, wich are ready to be converted into white scars...
death guard, still need much painting, but i Might use a couple of models for them, as they suit the pre heresy theme...

Some space wolves and space marines sprues
Two pic's of my painting space, one with my spray booth to.
My modelling table, with inspiration. Every pic i find inspiring, is one that rolls out the printer and gets classified.

More pics of my hobby room.

Thats a well organised paint station!

SO, for the financial side:
If i'm not mistaking, the maximum is 50 pounds per month.

space wolves blood claws:18 pounds
3 bikes: 21 pounds
2 bikes(wich I will buy from a friend): 14 pounds
Wich comes on a total of 53 pounds. Damn! 3 pounds to much. I will need to solve the problem. Let's think. Maybe i can consider the space wolves sprues as bitz box.

05-04-2007, 11:25
wow that dreaklock biker guy is awesome nice work
so any updates?


06-04-2007, 15:14
Ok, so, the budget changed to 35 pounds.
I will consider the blood claws as bitz box, so

5 bikes: 35 pounds.

So, another update. I made a base and will try to cast it. I used a cavalry base and used a round base to give it round ends. I am now trying to make a mould of it in Latex and then cast it in plaster or resin. If the latex doesn't work, I will get some rubber. I'm making a cast of it because I'm not wanting to make 25 custom bases. The mould includes some sand on the base, but I will flock them invidualy with grass and stuff and add some stones and other features.

And a sketch of my display base, still verry rough...
