Default Unxpekted22's Black Templars

UNXPEKTED22's BLACK TEMPLARS


Their ship floated in orbit far above us in the night sky, its black hull glistening from our home world's star still coming around the bend. we could heat their impending march. We could hear the hum of their armor. They had no need for silence, we were doomed. We dared not shoot yet, for every round would be hoping for a miracle, even at point blank range. When we turned the spotlight upon their first numbers, we stared at the Emperor's wrath incarnate. In black armor they were Death, with great shoulders of white they were Purity, with crimson eyes they were Oath, but for our point of view, those eyes were Hate. They were the Black Templars, those of The Crozius, the strike cruiser that never halts in its Eastern Fringe Crusade. There was no divine intervention for me, luck, pure and utter luck, is the only reason I still live. They leave some alive to spread the word of their fury, so that a single strike cruiser's forces can enact the preliminary stages of purging throughout an entire sector before they even step foot on the next world's soil. They have little regard for the codex, they are no tools of mankind, but only the Emperor's will. Even in death I will not forget, the image that spotlight unveiled before me.












This thread goes in order of time of painted, so these on the first page are not my newest. I have many that are older than them but I dont know if I'll ever add them here, probably not much point really.


A quick list of my army's iconography: (my main opponent is a necron player, so I have included some stuff for that, and why terminator basing has necron parts hehehe)
boltgun metal knee pads-defended an objective against overwhelming odds
holy censors (hanging lantern things) - outstanding ability to lead brothers in prayer and motivation, are known amongst the fleet to keep everyone's head straight in difficult situations.
robes/cloak/cloth - have tutored a neophyte who successfully went on to become an initiate.
crossing yellow scythes -fought side by side with members of the scythes of the emperor SM chapter.
bright blue dots - each dot represents and equivalent of 10 tau killed in the Revenge of Tria'Vaa. Battlesuits were considered equal to 5 tau infantry.
black and white checkers - each white checker stands for an ork warboss killed.
bronze/gold elbows with templar cross- soon to be sword brethren.
sword brethren - color scheme differs form the BT norm.
White crosses on the knee pads - have successfully charged through necron gauss fire and sent many lesser necrons back to their graves on multple occasions. warriors, immortals, flayed ones etc...
templar cross on the helmet - killed a higher being of necron. destroyers, periahs, lords.
silver or boltgun stripes on legs and/or midsection - has killed an innumerable amount of lesser tyranid forms, gaunts, gargoyles.
red stripes on helmet - has killed a particularly tough or problematic tyranid synapse creature.


(this is all subject to change of course, it just helps me out with them as characters and such for my fluff and RPs. I'm using it as a reference for me to remember as well as any of you.)




five assault marines:







Some other initiates:




I posted the pred a while ago in the regular modelling forum. in a future post on this thread I'll show the vehicles. pred rhino fixed up dreadnoughts, and hopefully I will finish my vindicator. I doubt i'll have my LRC done for a long time.


I still have to put my assault terminators together and paint them too....


So far I have built and painted:
grimaldus & retinue
Emperors champion
marshal/castellan
7 terminators 1 with cyclone missile launcher
2 assault terminators
techmarine with servo harness
5 sword brethren
2 dreads (AoBR)
1 venerable dreadnought
ten assault marines (five metal)
ten neophytes
~60 initiates including standard bearers, special weapons, apothecary etc..
1 rhino
1 predator annihilator class
1 landpseeder
1 bike

built or base coated:
vindicator
land raider crusader
razorback
2 attack bikes
3 assault terminators
1 rhino
Helbrecht
2 terminators with assault canons

I have, but are not built or painted:
6 initiates

things still on the list to get:
more rhinos
more razorbacks
two more preds
maybe some more landspeeders
5 more assault terminators
most likely more marines

You can never be prepared for the unexpected

Very cool how you have named them all, its a good idea!! I really like the Vanguard sergeant in white, it really stands out, very nice. Nice use of all the Templar upgrade parts, they really make a hell of a lot of difference.

+rep on the basis you've actually named everyone in the army.

lol yeah Azwraith i took a few names form the rps we've been in.

thanks for the compliments as a whole im glad you guys like the fact i have actually taken the time to name them all haha, it helps with the individualizing i talked about in the post a bit. Still need to name that new guy.

oh and to eltanko's comment, i am really glad i chose to do that as well. As the squad leader i would say yeah he definitely stands out, i had never painted a white model before so im pretty happy with how he turned out.

the predator:









is there a way to make the transfers not look so obviously like stickers in when bright light hits them?

Look forward to the pictures.

In answer to the transfers question, I normally dilute a matt varnish and put it on the area where its going then apply the transfer using a dry brush to squeeze out the excess varnish. After that I just paint neat varnish over the top.

It stops there being any air behind the transfer and seals it on good and proper.
