Commander Carab Culln watched as the battle unfolded below. The Imperial Fists had taken cover in the ruins of an Imperial church, the guns of their devastators roaring from the towers. The hordes of undead that assaulted them were cut down in droves, but heavy losses did nothing to slow the tide.
++Strength in Purity!++
++ They shall be my finest warriors, these men who give of themselves to me. Like clay I shall mould them, and in the furnace of war forge them. They will be of iron will and steely muscle. In great armour shall I clad them and with the mightiest guns will they be armed. They will be untouched by plague or disease, no sickness will blight them. They will have tactics, strategies and machines so that no foe can best them in battle. They are my bulwark against the Terror. They are the Defenders of Humanity. They
are my Space Marines and they shall know no fear.++ - The Emperor of Mankind
Culln turned to Captain Maximus of the 4th company.
‘Brother,’ he said, ‘ready your men. We go to war.’
Greeting Heretics. It's a new year and time for a new army. This year I've chosen the Red Scorpions space marines, specifically the 4th company. As there is currently nothing written of the 4th, it gives me free reign with fluff.
I intend this army to be my best, modelled and painted to the highest standard I can achieve.
I don't have an army list yet, but hopefully you guys can help me with that over the coming months.
My rough idea for the army is to start with a core of tactical marines, 20 to begin. These will be supported by rhinos and razorbacks (see further in post)
Later into the project I will pick up Sevrin Loth and Commander Culln but for now my first FW order is just a set of the RS brass etch and the veteran sergeant haas upgrade pack.
Like my Imperial fist army, I intend to make a unique looking force through conversions and not using a single standard marine helmet throughout the army.
I think that's enough blabber from me, on to the pictures. Huzzah!
First we've got the two test models I painted up. Some of you will have see these already but here they are again anyway.
Since this photo was taken they have had more highlights and generally been tidied.
Today I've been working on my January entry for the army painting challenge.
I plan to have all my transports able to swap between rhinos and razorbacks. And as a first, I intend to paint the insides :shock:
So here we have a WIP of my first transport. I want each of them to have some sort of little story inside them and in this first one we see a brother marine surveying tactical information on his auspex.
I'm really pleased with how this guy turned out. It looks just how I envisioned when I began. I know the green stuff thighs aren't brilliant but neither are my green stuff skills so I'm pretty chuffed.
There will be more updates as I progress on the transport.
