This looks like it will be a great IF army. Maybe you could work a bit more on the eyes and paint on a glassy effect. But that's only a small thing.
I like the yellow - doesn't fall into the trap of looking like a Fisher-Price army.
However, what's "pre-heresy" about them? They all look normal to me.
im loving this army thread, best imperial fists ive seen in a long time
but i have to say, my own personal taste is the less battle damaged the better, i do believe there is a lot on your test marine, even if it is a big pictures, but ya know its up to you in the long run, make sure your army is for you first, others second (unless commissioned lol)
cant wait to see that sicarius convertion finished, he will look like a great commander for your army, ive used that base model as Garro for the Death Guard
and those pre heresy jump packs dont look too bad tbh
and in reply to your PM i do actually only have 11 left, but im ive already begun using them, so atleast you got those wookie ones
cant wait for more updates!
Good stuff as ever guys, we're planning something similar for the Battle for Earth so im keen to see how it all turns out! Plus oooh, Pcrc website updates? Did you get a video of the last event? The others cracked me up
looks great. I like the MK3 test marine
Ah, I think I see now. Mind you, all the guys in Mk 5 armour would suggest it's "during Heresy", not "pre heresy"
possibly 'Heresy Era' then rather than pre heresy, but it's nice to see the variation, and there are lot's of mk4 armies kicking around these days
Wow thanks guys,
Emilio 101; I agree with you they need a bit of something to make them pop out a but I think il start a bit darker.
Andrew G Paul; Thanks I would have said exactly what Funky Chef1 said but I suppose they are more heresy than Pre heresy but its all pretty similiar really.
LordKhaine; I've managed to get 10 jumpacks now although I will need one more I think il be able to find one on Ebay. Thanks for the compliment and i really like your Space wolves they look great.
I'm going to be trying another technique for the battle damage so I will be doing a few more test models until I am 100% happy before I go ahead on the whole army.
Nik & EmMeTt; Thanks guyz.
Noserenda; I'm not sure I know what your talking about. Battle for earth? Video from the last event? PCRC updates?
Stuffs looking lovely, really liking the Captain and the overall look of the army. I saw that you're also planning a Primarch, any thoughts on how you'll do it?
These are some very well painted models shaw3029. There seem to be a lot of Fists around at the moment and yours certainly stand out. I particularly like your method of painting battle damaged armour.
Whoops... Wondered why that wasnt on your thread... wrong thread and it seems the one I wrote for here is gone entirely...
These guys are indeed awesome, keen to see how Hammer guy comes out and love the battle damage!
Noserenda, How strange, I was looking at your thread you've got some nice stuff are you talking about the Tempus Fugitive campaign weekends? I was thinking about going to the one in September but I'm busy then. Are they good fun? I presume they will be doing at least one more for the actual seige of terra.
Bob Hunk, There certainly are alot of Imperial Fists about at the moment I will be keeping an eye on your joint log especially to see Dorn and any other characters you guys decide to do.
CaptainSenioris, I know exactly what I will be using for the Primarchs body guard and I've ordered them so expect some pictures of them soon after they arrive.
As for Dorn I'm thinking of using Calgar as a starting point. I don't really like the sketch in the horus heresy artbook. I'm going to go for a much less ornate, simpler look to him. I'm stuck as to what weapons to give him, I posted here;
But nobody really seems to know. I thought the "Fist of Dorn" would work well and I will probably arm him with a storm/combi bolter.
Some of my Jump Packs came through today so I paint stripped them and got them stuck onto the five assault Marines.
I've traded some Ork bits for another five jump packs which should come through any day now so the Chaplain will have one as soon as.
Let me know what you think.
Those assault marines are looking promising and are definatly looking suitable pre heresy.
As for Dorn weapons it's written in several places that Primarchs, whilst owning weapons that they prefered did own/use more than one. So whilst Fist of Dorn and Dorn's Arrow may seem like the pair to use they may have just been gifts that Dorn left on a shelf. I have a Dorn model which can be seen in the first post of my rather dormant painting log, it's partly inspired by the HH:CV Artwork that you don't like but it may give you some ideas.
Cool, Cheers mate! I can heartily recommend the Fugitives events and they are doing another 2 Age of the Emperor events, Battle for Earth in May and the Scourging next September! Be good to see your fists there!
On a related note on Dorns kit (Like the 2 Fists idea) in the TF packs hes armed to the nines with the Fist of Dorn, Arrow of Dorn, Storm Shield AND a Master Crafted Power weapon, plus assorted grenades
Those Jump packs are a pain to get, but well worth it in the end
CaptainSenioris, I like the simpler look about your Dorn he looks cool.
Noserenda, Maybe I will try and arm him like that although thats alot of gear to get one one model. Even If It Is a Primarch. Maybe I will dump the storm shield we shall see but first I have to actually get hold of Calgar.
I've had a good look through the campaign pack on the website and Camba Diaz looks like a good option to put in the shadowsword I might have to buy a Chronus model to make him. But where can you find the background for him? Is he In the Mechanicum book?
Archamus- Master of the Huscarl Templars sounds cool aswell but where can I find info on him.
I will look into going to the battle for earth next May it sounds fun doing the siege afterall thats what the Fist's are built for!
Tis true, id probably pick one or two and roll with that personally, dumping the shield is probably the easiest bit too!
Cambra Diaz is cool, and pops up briefly in mechanicum, Archamus I have no idea
In Mechanicum, Cambra Diaz leads a strike force against one of the forges loyal to Horus. I think there is a brief bit about the fighting but I can't remember to well.
The company Champion.
Is now finished I am thinking of putting all of Dorn's honour guard on the larger bases.
Noserenda & EmMeTt; I've just started reading it again.
