Default A strange and unusual kit...

My fellow Heretics,

For the best part of a month by now or so, I've been keeping tabs on a rather unusual model kit that's caught my attention.



For those not in the know, this particular image originates from the famous Bolter and Chainsword Horus Heresy/40K project "The Dornian Heresy" - a Shattered Glass-esque retelling on the Horus Heresy, where Rogal Dorn rather than Horus becomes the Arch Traitor. Long story short - Space Wolves become this continuity's Khorne Legion, the Salamanders hook up with Malal, the Blood Angels turn to Nurgle (yes really), the Ultramar Segmentum secedes from the Imperium, the Sons of Horus become the Black Templars (while the Imperial Fists become the Black Legion), the Thousand Sons turn into Proto-Grey Knights, the Word Bearers found the Ecclesiarchy (and become it's militant arm as this continuity is devoid of Sisters of Battle, way to go guys Matt Ward would be proud) etc, etc.

Anyway, I really like the look of the armor, but I cannot for the life of me identify the original kit the legs, torso and even the shoulder pads come from. Are they produced by a parts manufacturer? Are they still operating? Is this eBay link the only place where I might pick up this brand of armor?

This is especially jarring as the suits have popped up in at least one other guy's modelling project, which I have linked here.

You may also find the eBay link for said kit here. I'd like to know if this is the only place where I might pick it up, or if there's some obscure third party manufacturer out there cranking out new suits.

Yeah, saw this on eBay a few weeks past. I didn't even know about the whole alt history thing they come from.
Going to have to look into this. Khornate Space Wolves, just sounds truly epic.

I didn't know people were actually creating kits related to this. Kudos to them.

According to what little I've been able to dig up, this is the only kit relating to this. This is why I'm trying to find out if the manufacturer really is a company I've been overlooking, or one Russian guy on eBay.

They don't look all that bad to be honest

now i know what to do if i ever want to start running a chaos army . honestly the legs are the only cool part of that entire armor though. everything else is pretty lackluster to me.

Just as an update - nobody at my FLGS has been able to positively ID the manufacturer either.

Love the look of this MK16 armour could certainly do some things with that. Only thought is that is seems to be quite a departure from the more standard marines in the standard line more like Ironman/Mk8(higher gorget and alternative pauldrons) and Mk 3 Iron armour with that segmented cable gaurd. With a bit of blending through the army i think these could be put in nicely.

I'd wager the manufacturer is the ebay seller.

Not unlike these guys, Montastore. Montastore used to be a different seller but selling exactly the same 3rd party items. Their Iron Warriors (I bought this) and Thousand Sons conversion kits are pretty nice. But it seems like there are a number of Eastern European, Russian, Ukrainian, and Asian ebay sellers who are producing their own lines.
