After getting back into the hobby a few months ago when i started my Dark Eldar army, which is now around 1500pts. I decided to go for a second army.
reason for this is that my wife also likes to play an occasional 40k game and with 1 army thats kinda hard. So i decided to go Crimson Fists.
Im not planning on speed painting this army like i usually do, but go for a high quality finish.
a) i really like the fluff around the chapter
b) i really sux at painting yellow ( so no imperial fists)
c) BA/BT/DA/vanilla... already done once
d) i really want to get a crack at painting darker blues.
To start off i made a test model, which will also be my commander for my army.
(first off i have to excuse myself for the crap pictures, im shooting with a really old camera, since my other one got stolen)
body of the commander
For the skin im going for the reaper triad tanned skin
base - tanned shadow
layer1 - tanned skin
highlight - tanned highlight
This will give a slightly tanned (duh) skin which i think goes well with the blue armour of the Crimson Fists.
Planning for 20-05-2012:
Getting the head done. As i progress i will post pics on how it goes
