Hey everyone, I'm new to this forum and I thought I'd share some of my current projects plus the commission I just picked up today.
The Guardians of Silence
These guys are a homebrew chapter I've been working on for the past couple of months. When I first came to the hobby I was going to play a long, lost company of the Raven Guard, the 13th Company. As I learned more about the 40k universe it became harder and harder to fluff away certain realities when it came to making a 13th secret company of the Raven Guard. Thus began the Guardians of Silence.
A Brief Intro
A prophecy was once foretold, warning of doom and destruction from a great green maelstrom that would rage across the Imperium in the distant future. A raging storm of mechanoid invaders that, if uncontested, would destroy the entire human race. It is rumored this very prophecy led to the founding of the Guardians of Silence, a long unseen chapter of the Adeptus Astartes. It is said that they vigilantly stand guard over the Imperium from their dark homeworld on the distant edge of the Segmentum Pacificus. They have one mission destroy the Necron scourge wherever they are encountered.
The Adeptus Mechanicus were said to have strongly suggested heeding the prophecy and offered their full support. The edge of the galaxy was sure to provide the opportunity to seek out lost and new technology and the Mechanicum would not miss the opportunity to journey out with a Space Marine chapter. This led to a quasi-symbiotic relationship between the two and the creation of a well defended forge world in the core of the Aradius system. This relationship has led some other chapters to look down upon the Guardians, whilst others understand the necessity of such a union so far from the rest of the Imperium. In the eyes of the Guardians, the priests of the Mechanicum are brothers of faith and battle for both groups have helped to prevent the destruction of the other.
The prophecy was now told millennia ago and the Guardians have suffered great losses and terrible betrayals by some of their greatest brothers since their founding. The quickening of Necron awakenings creates a vast imbalance of power against the great Guardians, they stand alone amongst the Halo Stars, attempting holding back the prophesied storm.

I'll be sure to post more about them in the fluff section. Now to the fun stuff, pictures!
The Great Sage of Strix Sigurn Mordax, Chapter Master of the Guardians of Silence
I converted this guy over from an assault terminator. He's been a little true scaled and obviously has a green stuff tabbard and cloak. Details on his construction can be found on my blog: Imperial Red Inventions
He was made from the Dark Vengeance Librarian Turmiel, I pretty much just got rid of all the Dark Angels heraldry.
