Icon 2015 Project Log: Crimson Fists and Allies

++SOURCE: Opurad Delta-Five, Co-ordinates: 144022, 099725++
This is a call to all open channels. This is Sergeant Capiro, Krarern 392nd Armoured Company. We were ambushed by Ork units attempting to cross the Croizur Pass going South West from Central Piaze. Several units have been knocked out of action, commanding officer is KIA, I am the ranking officer of the company. We have flanked around the assault and disengaged, but it won't take them long to work out where we are.
Poseidon-347 is still Bravo Positive.. I repeat.. Bravo Positi...
<Explosions overheard>
Seeking immediate assistance.
Sergeant Capiro out

Brother Librarian Vargas relayed the message to the Command Castellum via a click of his vox unit in his helmet. After a few seconds, he received the all clear. He turned to Brother Sergeants Ruiz and Ibarra.
“Ready your men Sergeants, we have confirmation. We are to reinforce a stranded convoy with Poseidon on board only two kilometres from our current position. We fight until the Exfil arrives”
The two Sergeants acknowledged and turned to their squads. Vargas turned around, closed his eyes and cleared his mind. As he did, a bright blue aura wrapped around his neck and around the top of his scalp. Vargas looked at his force sword in his left hand, swung it around in a testing arc, listening to the soothing noise the psychic energy makes as it burns through the air around it.

Looking back at the two full tactical squads of Crimson Fists under his charge, he moved the force out, Razorback APC covering their rear. The gunfire erupted once more from the co-ordinates of the last known position of the Krarern 392nd. Picking up the pace, Vargas just hoped they weren't too late...

Hey guys and girls.

2015 starts a new year and a new project for me. I've recently sold on my Iron Lords to someone who paid a large sum of money for them! So to celebrate this I decided to start a army i've always wanted to start.. Crimson Fists!

Going for a more fluff based project log with extra bits added as the log is updated. The first 500pts is a Librarian leading two 10 man tactical squads with a supporting Razorback.

Thought i'd show you a trial model i've painted up using a tutorial I found. I'm quite happy with it, i'm sorry the photos are a little dark, but hopefully you can see where i'm going with the army:

I'll be also adding to this project log my first 1000pts of Tempestus Scions. They are nearly complete bar a Commissar.

Plenty more photos to follow!

Very crisp painting, can't wait to see the collection grow.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Nice start there. Looking forward to seeing more. The edge highlights are very good, I never have the patience to do that.

I'm sad that you sold on your Iron Lords but it's worth it I guess, especially if you get to do something you have always wanted, in this case, Fists.

Loving the first model.

As above, it's sad that the Iron Lords are gone. Those guys were great. But I'm a fan of the Crimson Fists and I always enjoy your logs so bring them on.
