Never put up pics here before, but here's some of the Crimson Fists I'm currently repainting. Got a couple of the Command Squad done, plus one of the new Plastic Venerable Dreadnoughts we have in our store as a preview.

I'm loving that dready and your other models are pretty sick too.

An Ork, a Chaos Space Marine and an Imperial Guardsman are sitting around a fire. The Ork says "I could get dead stompy on the both of you but I'm too tired." The Chaos Marine looks at the two of them, "I could just shot you both in the head but I'm too lazy." The Guardsmen looks at them, "I've been shooting you both for an hour now and not a damn things happened yet."

Just got Pedro done. I had painted him during the week but the dullcote caused Frosting on him so he had to be redone. I lost his original helmet, but I feel the one from the Masters of the Chapter box works pretty well.

Any particular reason you mismatched the dreads shoulders? one looks to be convex and the other more of the mkIV concave.

you mean it doesn't have the option to have a matched set? the gun arm is always convex? Unless the sprue pics on GW are lying, there appears to be a cap for the cc arm to match the gun arm to the right of the exhaust packs.

ah I see, I checked the sprue again and it has options to match each of the three gun arm, what I did was just built all three gun arms so I could swap easy, so the poerfist arm matches the plasma cannon arm, and not the assault cannon arm. What I think they expect people to do is use only one gun arm, and slot the weapons in and out (sicne the new weapons have square bottoms that push into the shoulder

I'd just like to mention that I would like to use Matt Ward's face as a pinata for the abominations he has made of the two Power Armour Codicies with which he was entrusted.

Really liking the bare headed Kantor. It has a bit more character than the stock mini I think. The paint work is good too, and Ithink you've more than done that Venerable Dread justice :)

Work continues, just finished a terminator sgt with the Forgeworld shoulders and Scout Sgt with Combi melta and am 90% done on one of my speeders and a sternguard unit. Hopefully I'll get my FW Land Raider doors and can make a start on that this week

Hi there, just wondering if this is a conversion or stock model? It is very nice.

Just out of interest; how do the metal Crimson Fist helmets compare to the plastic Space Marine helmets?

Hell, according to the fluff, you're more likely to find Superman flying around than a female Space Marine, because whereas the fluff states that geneseed only works in males, it doesn't state that there aren't Kryptonians in the galaxy.

Awesome model - I did pretty much the same for my CF chapter champion - check my sig! Nice to see someone using bright colurs on CFs.

edit - sorry, meant avatar/profile pic

Nice, very nice indeed. Looking forward to seeing some more stuff soon.

"It is not our battle barges and bolters, our lascannons and melta bombs that will bring us victory. These are merely devices of destruction. It is our will to wield them without compromise, to unleash righteous devastation in the Emperor's name, which will bring us victory. Hate these foes! Hate them with every fibre of your being. Hate them in your hearts and despise them in your souls. Purge them with flamer and sword and be happy at their deaths." - Chaplain Cassius

"We commend our souls to the Emperor. Let the story of our sacrifice burn across history like a shooting star. For Death and for Glory - for the Ultramarines!" - Veteran Sergeant Lucian Ventris. 745.M41
