LPC 2012 First wip posting - Black Templar Command Squad Sergeant, Chapter Champion & 2 initiates (apothecary & Razorback ready & waiting, not part of the vow).
Trying hard to avoid distractions from business trips, "critical shopping" and tempations such as my half finished Landraider Crusader.

Here is the Chapter Champion with the latest focus on his power sword, starting with a boltgun/blue ink mix and the undercoat of the flashes. Combat shield is a cut down storm shield from the assault squad sprue.

Next is the Command Squad Sergeant, with a power sword to match his Champion. Thanks to some magnets, he also has a power fist - just finishing the shoulder pad.

Posted Image

The Initiates have a long way to go - only the tabards undercoated and basecoated with Dehneb Stone so far. Not worthy of a pic.

Good luck with your vows.

Hey brother looking good. I'm also working on a command squad. What load out are you planning on?
I'm thinking ...
Marshal - counts as lightning claw, storm shield
Company Champion
Apothecary
Sergeant - powerfist, storm shield, termie honors
2 meltagun sword brethren
4 sword brethren ccw/bp

Anyway back to your models ... I think u should try using the color u used for the lightning effects and then mix in a good dose of skull white and touch up parts of the lightning. It'll give it a better effect IMO.

Looking forward to more Brother

Hi Kisade,

I am planning the Command Squad for a Razorback load so far. Emphasis is on CCW, as I have other squads with meltas. I might expand to a Rhino crew later, in which case the two meltas would definitely be in - a serious BT advantage.

Plan so far:
Marshal - pair Lightning claws - completed 2011
Sergeant - Terminator honours, Power Fist & BP (optional magnet swap for power sword) - as above almost complete for LPC 2012
Company Champion - BP, combat shield and power sword - as above now almost complete
Apothecary, Terminator Honours, Plasma pistol from armoury
2x Initiates with BP/CCW

I also have a Chapter/Company Standard Bearer, but this is not really worth the points over a BP/CCW replacement.
Not that fond of storm shields for their points - a tank hull gives much better protection and value. Plus the separate Sword Bethren squad and a few other choice targets can readily dilute the firepower.

LPC vow completed! Here is the final Initiate all decorated up:

and the completed Black Templar sergeant with power sword. The banner is meant to be relatively plain, as I could not imagine an Initiate taking personal heraldry over his fellows.

and assembling the four members of the Black Templar Command Squad for this vow:

Now to put these guys in context, here is the full Command Squad and Castellan, with models finished last year. The Chapter Banner is just for parade, as he's not needed to load out a Razorback.

This was only a small group, but I will be away on a business trip for a few weeks and more would be getting ambitious. When I get back, it will be time to finish off the LRC that I started after Christmas.... fun, fun, fun! ^_^
