Commander Isiah, Chapter Master of the Flesh Eaters
Let me introduce to my first project log in the WIP forum, my take on the infamous 3rd founding Chapter, the Flesh Eaters. Now I’ve always been a Blood Angel, ever since I was a fresh faced 14 year old when Angel’s of Death came out. After dropping out of the hobby for a good while I returned to it a couple of years ago and picked up my beloved BA during the pdf.codex. I have currently got around 1500-1700 fully painted army with other stuff built. At this point it was either carry on building/painting more BA or have a change of direction with something different and a more hard core successor while it is still possible. It’s something that was always niggling at the back of my mind during the build of my Angels, and I finally took the plunge towards the end of the year. I looked at the more common bad-ass poster boys the Flesh Tearers, the hardcore Knights of Blood who have appeared in the new codex, and the equally hardcore Flesh Eaters; the latter described in the codex as being “fatally undone by their geenseed” a theme I think I could definitely work with. “How could GW destroy one of their original Rogue Trader Chapters in one sentence?” I here you cry! Tut-tut .
Also helping with the decision were a few other more practical reasons; including a uniform colour scheme that I can easily apply to my existing marines (I dislike all the different coloured heads and the rise of Assault Squads over Tacs has meant my BA look like a yellow headed successor nowadays!), anybody who knows of my work will know I like a heavy vampire theme, to the point of more so than the standard BA. I also like to cover my dudes in blood, guts for a gritty look instead of bling-bling showroom fresh shine meaning the time has come for the change, so here I am repainting my BA army lol. Check out my Flesh Eater test marine HERE, it shouldn’t be too difficult to convert my BA to FE. I want them to look border line Loyalist/Traitor – a sort of are they or aren’t they, so expect a hard core look with lots of trophies, and I’ll be using the old RT era colour scheme with the current Chapter symbol of a monstrous fanged maw.
Once I start making new models, I plan to use a lot of Corvus armour (esp for the Veterans) as this is ideal with the 3rd founding history. Anyways, enough boring stuff, pictures are much more fun, yes? All only my old stuff repackaged and re-badged so you must bare with me if you are familiar with my BA army for the time being.
Enter the Flesh Eaters…….
