Hey y'all, Squeek here with a project that is near and dear to my heart.
Templars was my first army when I started this hobby 10 years ago, and now I've gone back to them!
I've always loved their playstyle and how simple they are to paint. Not that they always are (trust me, I struggle plenty with them)
The last few weeks have been used stripping my old army that was painted a long long time ago, trust me you wouldnt want to see.
I've also procured new models from a friend that I have also stripped.
All of this has left me with a sizeable force. Probably close to 2500 points (and I don't even have any raiders yet!)
This log will be a driving force to keep me motivated to get all of this stuff, and hopefully more painted in the next year or so.
So, out of all the stuff I have, I think I'm going to attack it one unit at a time so I dont get overwhelmed trying to do to much at once.
The first units I got back into it with was a Dread. Im pretty happy with how he came out, but I don't have any picture of him yet. None the less, in the five games I've played with the army so far, he has yet to be killed. Still suffering no less than 6 immobilizations, 5 weapons destroyed, and countless stuns and shakens. All of which were suffered at the hands of those incideous orks! This simply confirms my hypothesis that painted models kill moar stuffs! Needless to say he will be getting some sort of lucky ork glyph added to him in the future
The next unit I started on was a basic 10 man crusader squad. All have been base coated and had the basics of their metallics done, but I decided to break up the chunks into even smaller bits. So I finished the first five, including the powerfist, and melta gunner.
So, I present to you the first models of my rightous crusade!
Sorry that the pictures are so close up and large. It doesnt do the models justice as they start looking crappy this close up. I simply am not a good photographer. Something else I can hopefully improve on through the inception of this plog.
C&C is always welcome and appreciated!
Thanks for looking
