Because i can't do anything the way it's meant to be, when i got my hands on this amazing FW piece for my new unnamed chapter, i just had to move it around alot, give it some oomph...

you guys like the pose?

any ideas for the name? its a fists successor chapter, very strict codex chapter.




and my company champion, which isnt a great pic because he's primed... but still

yeah, he is kneeling, the marine behind him confuses that a bit, i also realised i forgot some GS on teh dread... damnit...

the HB is raised because he's not using it...

How are you priming your figures? Chaos Black spray? It's a nice coverage, whatever you're using.

I do like what you've done with the dread, but I think the he's leaning over a bit too much, and he looks a little like he's falling. I would twist the front leg around to the outside a bit, so it's facing the same way as the torso.

yeah, just plain old GW spray

that is a very good idea. i'll think about it, im just slightly worried about the fragility of resin...

Nice dude, I likes it a lot, that has got to be the first time I have seen a Champion kneeling, looks very holy and reverant.

Can't wait to see it painted up.

If you can, it might be easier to just saw the leg (above the knee maybe), turn it, then stick/pin it back again. Or maybe remove the leg completely, move it into position, then fix it, filling in the gap with some greenstuff and gears/wires/etc.

This would be easier to explain with diagrams. :?

both looking really good, think the dred could be improved by some wires or something covering up the GS but other than awesome job

the GS is textured to look like... well... tubing, or something, something flexible that would allow a dreads arms to move..

What's you colour scheme?
Any ideas of chapter history etc?
Do you want to go 'tumpty-Fists' (eg Silver, Flaming, Storm) or 'Fists of bosh' (eg Fury, Vengeance) or just avoid 'fists' altogether?
Do you want to go with 'blah of Dorn' (eg knights, angels, sons, scions... fists even)?

Hope theere's enough there to keep you going.

Loving the piccies BTW, in a "mum, why don't his minis look all crappy where he's hacked them about like mine do? That's because he's not a brainless ork, son" kinda way. If I weren't so red I'd turn green with envy.

Personally, I love the pose of the Dread, very very mobile looking. I wouldn't change that pose at all Tor. The champion is damn cool too, kneeling Marines aren't the easiest thing in the world to pull off.

'Fists of bosh'
There you go, that's my marine army name.

but seriously, in a lame, but quite cool way, i'm going to go with the Silver Fists. I likey. Not written any fluff yet, but will soon, will also adjust paintjob to give them a silver fist. maybe Mailed Fists...

I'm not going to, having looked at it, the legs dont really seem to articule to turn just one leg, so it's staying as it is.

kneeling Marines aren't the easiest thing in the world to pull off.
i did cheat a bit, using the kneeling legs from the command sprue...

You probably need a capital 'b' then. :)
