I had after a break due to work etc decided to get back into the modelling aspect of the Hobby. I liked the History of the Relictors. And decided to paint some up. I left off most of the Squad marking etc as they appear to be banned, although some purity seals remain, mostly for contrast. The vehicles were are meant to look messy, as the Chapter is vastly under strength I wanted this Army to look like it didnt have the resources or the time to maintain them properly. I've used pigments here for the first time too. some work needed there, but overall not too bad. Used the occassional Chaos weapon too just to show the lack readily avaliable equipment they have. I'm reasonably happy with the out come. I may add a Dreadnought, and some Termies one day. thought I wanted to avoid the use of Elites as I made the assumption that they of likey stayed behind to fight the Grey Knights whilst those that could made a run for it.
» History/Fluff This is a good link. Full of History, and even a Codex. though it might be a bit dated now. Anyone interested in this Chapter is advised to check it out. The Relictors seem to have a growing fan base even with Chapters like the Blood Angels getting all the good toys lol.
» Modelling and Conversion Information
I ended up adding or reconditioning from other projects some Elites to this Army as I had the time. So I have added.
-A Chaplain
-Iron Clad Dreadnaught
-Terminator Squad
And decided that though the Elites did stay behind to fight the Grey Knights, some still managed to get away.
So, ended up adding yet more. Kept getting my butt kicked gaming, mostly due to my poor squad collection, so have ended up adding another Term Squad with Thunder Hammers and a Chaplain. A Landspeeder Squad, and adding 3 more assault Marines to the Assault Squad in the hope that they will last a little longer..... Plan on adding a Drop pod and either 4 more assault Termies or a Stern Guard Squad. Just to bring it up to 3001pts.....

Added the Sternguard in the end, minus 1 Chaplain is a 3000pt Force. Still a little tempted to do a Vanguard and a Command Squad though.....

The Red dude in the Sternguard squad was a bit of a modelling project/character. he's loosely based on Hellboy. And as The Relictors use Chaos to fight Chaos, I thought he was pretty fitting. In game terms, he's just a Marine with Bolter.

Nice army and thanks for adding all the attachment pics! I'd suggest getting some better lights or opening the windows to bring out the contrasts better. Also, with a black or dark army, you really can't photograph it on a white backdrop cause the camera will auto-contrast and make your model look way too dark. I'd suggest photographing a dark army like this on a black, gray, or dark brown backdrop.

Thanks for the comments. This ones pretty much done mate. this is the Army I take to the local GW when I get the chance. I may add a couple more Scout Squads, or another Assault Squad at some point, but for now I'll be re-vamping my Pre-Heresy dark Angels. Got some big plans there.....
