Default Warmongers 2nd Company

Warmongers Space Marines
2nd Company




I went through a number of chapters and came across these who fulfilled the criteria of having an established colour, the colour being two toned and that it didn't have a much in the way of background, the only background these have is a force composition chart in a forge world book which included the name of the Captain whose called Balthus and his Battle Barge, Allegiance of Terra. I've yet to figure out the naming conventions for the rest of the squads though.

I've nearly finished three parts of it so far. The overall force is going to be a planetary assault themed force, the army list is at the bottom.

Captain Balthus of the 2nd Company (Uses Lysander rules)



Terminator Squad



Tactical Squad


I've been working on the lore behind them on the Black Library's Bolthole Forum and so far in a combine effort we've come up with them being a Salamander Successor Chapter.

The reason as to why they've not been noted as being a successor is because the original chapter master was a Terran Salamander who disobeyed Vulkan's orders to regroup after the Istvaan Massacre and instead went off to fight the traitors wherever he found them.

After the ending of the Heresy, instead of been executed for disobeying orders, Vulkan who loved all his sons, exiled him with those who had followed him and forbid the newly forged chapter any acknowledgment of their ancestry stating "Salamanders follow orders and dedicate themselves to the protection of the Imperium, you however only monger for war."

This is as far as I've got with it, the thread on the bolthole forums kind of died down after a bit.

Thanks It's very overcast here so the light wasn't the best when I did the pictures, they are highlighted a lot more than what can be seen in those pictures. Next Squad I'll be doing is my scout squad which is made up of the old metal scout models.

It's been a long time in the making but I'm going to be entering my stores Armies on Parade and I've took some quick photos of what I've done so far and thought I'd share them with you. Apologies that some are out of focus, they looked focused when I took them but you know.

Very cool looking. The quartered vehicles look great. It might just be the photosn, but I will say that some of the green on them could do with a few more highlights.

Thanks! The drop pod hasn't been highlighted yet, the others I did highlight, I think it may be the focus that's not showing it very well. What do you think of the board, I did it myself today.

I think it needs something. The grey and white needs something to break it up. Maybe some craters with lava in the bottom maybe, just to add a bit of colour.

That's a really interesting color scheme that I wouldn't think would work if you pitched it to me but it really does somehow.

The display base looks good, the only things I would do is add a little more static grass to it as there is quite a bit on the mini's bases and not so much on the board. The other thing I would do is put some snow around the bottoms of the Defence Line walls as they stick out a bit atm. I may be wrong but with the Vindy, I think the crew man is supposed to go underneath the hatch rather than on top, it kind of looks like he doesn't any arms atm.

So, I take it off the top and slide it in from beneath? so just he head is popping through? The defence line isn't finished just yet, but I'll try add some grass and snow around it, it's not being stuck to the base because I use it in my army sometimes.

Edit: Altered the crewmen and it does look better just need to paint the rim again as the inner bit is now bare.

Yeap that's the way.

I imagined that's what the defence line is for, makes perfect sense, it's what I would do.
