Default Dagmires Inquisitorial Storm troopers project

Ok then here we go. My fisrt blog following the start of an army all the way to 1500 points.
The army is based on an Inquisitor and his force of storm troops. I want the force to represent a small detatchment of Troopers led by an Inquisitor. The over all look is one of a prolonged conflict within a built up area. All the troops will have a grimy feel to them, this is a step away from the pure white of the sisters i first started.
The list it self will be coming form the IG codex with a counts as Company comand squad being the Inq and his retinue. The idea for the army will be quite fluff based. As fluff can be anything you want pretty much i will make a brief mention of my idea as well.
The Inquisitor as finished his investigations and moves his troops into position. Calling on the resources he has at his disposil he calls in 3 or 4 squads of Storm troopers who get into position in chimeras. The forward squad will already be on location passing back info, these will be in the form of The squad with Harkler in and also a squad of ratlings who will provide intemit fire support.
As the chimeras roll in they will be supported by a LR executioner that has be requsistioned for the duration of the Inquisitors investigations within the system. There will also be air support in the form of a valk and vend. These ships will take out any reinforcments the heritics may try to bring in and will also provent the enemy escaping. They will also have a RRF(Rapid reaction force) on board in case back up is needed
Once the assult is sprung the inquisitor will roll in in his command chimera using oficers of the fleet of black ships to ensure the enemy dont spring any supprises as well as astropaths to relay messages "real time".
Once the enemy is suppressed the Inquisitor and his retinue can take any captives back to their support ships by using the airships.
Short version.... see black hawk down.

At the moment the list is as follows:
in green means its done

Coy HQ


Command squad with:
Commander with Bolt pistol and cc weapon
2 x melta guns
2x guardsmen
Astropath

Officer of the fleet

Chimera with 2 x Heavy bolters.
187 points

Troops

Vet squad A
Gunnery Sgt Harker
2x melta guns
1 grenade launcher
Demolitions
All others with shotguns

170 points

Vet squad B
Sgt with shot gun
2x melta guns
1 heavy flamer
Chimera with Multi laser and Heavy flamer
155 points

Vet squad c
3x grenade launcher
Auto cannon
Chimera with Multi laser and heavy flamer
150 points

Vet squad D
3x sniper rifles
Missile launcher
Forward sentries
Chimera with Multi laser and Heavy flamer
185 points

Vet squad E (to ride in airship )
3x flamers
85 points

Heavy support
Executioner with las cannon and sponson plasma cannons
245 points

Fast attack
Valkyrie with ML and 2x multiple rocket pods and HB sponsons
140 points

Vendetta
130 points

Elites
5 ratlings
50 points

total of 1497

There is alot of room for change in this list but at the moment this is what i intend to play with.
The + side is thatI have alot of inf models to paint up so if things do change i wont have wasted my points on Vechs.

I will update the blog when ever I get models done. The sisters are still getting painted as well so the going may be slow. I have however formed a nice system where i paint SOB at work and IG at home so i have a distinct time allocation.
If all goes well i would like to have this army done within the year. That sounds liek a long time and I guess it is but jhaving a busy job and my sisters army to complete i think its a realistic goal.
Please let me know what you think of the list and the models. For now i will give you a glimps of my first test peice guards men


These are poor pictures of the models (not sure why) but this is the general theme and colour of the army. The heads are pig iron and the bases are by Dark art minis.

Ok here is my Executioner. I have used the FW turret and have made the sponsons changeable.
Plasma guns are getting painted later as is my tank comander who is also magnatised.
As with the rest of the Storm troopers the tank looks very dirty (too much?) Its almost done. Added some rust and tools. Some touch ups here and there and it will be ready. what do you think?
I used an air brush to get a clean finish with this tank. starting with black and then Adeptus battle gray. I then highlighted it with 3 layers of gray working my way up the colour scale.
Hopefully it fits in with the rest of the troops colour wise.


Next up 15 troops and a tank comander







Wow what a wall of text

Fantastic! Great pre-army fluff direction... and the heads are excellent (am biased as I'd do something very, very similar if I could do IG!)... colour scheme is good... hope to see more of these as time progresses!

Nice work there Dag.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?
