The roaring sound inside the Drop Pod threatened to batter the ears into oblivion but the auto sense of the Marines helmets stifled the assault of sound. Centurion Romulus shuddered about in his harness, his power armour juddering under the strain of the orbital descent. Harnessed opposite him was Gerhet, clenching and unclenching the deactivated power claw he wore. Romulus blinked and in perfect unison with his thoughts, his visor flashed through several different displays of information settling on the life signs of the squad he shared the transport with. Each one a Veteran marine of the Company, having survived from their creation centuries ago by cutting a bloody path through the galaxy with utter ruthlessness. They carried the most ancient and revered battle gear and their armour was also of ancient design, kept in as pristine a condition as possible with what little access the 3rd Crusade had to the Mechanicum. There was something in his own bio-signs read out that caused him to scrutinise it, an odd jump and tick in his brain waves. He focussed on it more intently, trying to judge what it was. He also noticed a tiny, slight deregulation in the tattoo of his twin hearts which caused a moment of tightness within his chest. Taking a deep breath and reciting age old instructions to himself he calmed his beating hearts as the rest of his mind focused on the thought pattern that evaded him. 



++Five minutes Brothers!++



Gerhets voice speared through the sound of the Pod, filling his helmet from the padded speakers either side of his ears. It was then that Romulus isolated the thought pattern and realized what he felt and why it was so odd. He felt nervous. Upon reflection he understood this momentary intrusion of feeling and then crushed it under the iron will of his indoctrinated mind. He was new to his command. The 3rd Crusade had its command element ripped out of it several months prior to his installation in a battle that cost the Macharian Crusade a notable set back. Romulus had been transferred from his veteran positions in the 6th Crusade by Chapter Command and given control of an entire Battle Crusade to push into this fresh new war. He knew he was command material, but even so, the prospect of leading these Marines into battle for the first time was altogether exciting and thrilling, especially against those they considered brothers. The normally well kept composure of Romulus cracked with a smile as he switched his information readout back to that of his squad, this should be interesting.

It was nearly time. 
 

++Somebody wake up Haephestan.++

---

The downward thrusters fired on the underside of the first set of pods, allowing the transports to slam into the ground just shy of turning their occupants into mulch. The staggered pattern allowed one in three pods to be filled with bristling weapons, their firing paths not intersecting any of the transports harboring Marines. Firing bolts exploded, sending the vast doors of the pods slamming into the ground, crushing curious rebel guard who strayed too close to the hissing vehicles. Giant, multi-barrelled cannons began to rotate at a frightening rate, the whir of noise causing those not crushed to flee in terror. The assault cannons opened fire, stitching a blaze of explosive fire into the mass of the enemy. Bodies were popped, shredded and shorn apart by the vicious guns. Several of the hulking Space Marines of the Star Phantoms were scythed down among the horde of dead men. 

Then the first transport bearing troops dropped its assault ramps and its occupants charged forth with a snarl upon their lips. Prefect Callisto punched the activation stud on his chest, igniting the twin turbines upon his back. He ascended on streamers of fire, as the rest of his squad followed. The roar of his jump pack was joined by the fierce whine of his chainsword as he revved it into action. He lowered his Bolter before him and unloaded the weapons contents into the mass of men below, blowing heads and arms from bodies. The Teeth of Vengeance smashed home into the enemy and began to cleave about them with screaming chain weapons and crackling power blades. Each Marine adorned with the heads of particularly honoured foes, trinkets and talismans taken from conquests. The most fearsome aspect of these grim warriors though, was the vicious snarling mouths painted up the sides of their corvus pattern helms. Saw edged teeth dripping with blood greeted each enemy as they died under the cold glare of the black visor lenses. 

Callisto pulled his chainsword back, ripping the guts out of a wailing rebel. He fired point black into the chest of another as a mob rushed him and then proceeded to back hand his gun into the face of the nearest foe. Teeth crunched and the man's jaw shattered as Callisto fire his jump pack again. The Teeth sprinted among the vast horde of enemy fighters, adding to the carnage before rising like angels into the air on contrails of fire. They dropped down into the mob at random, creating as much havoc and confusion as they possibly could while their Sergeant sought his primary target. 

---

Romulus disengaged the harness holding him to the power station he was hooked into. He ran through his suits protocols one last time as the ribbed metal cables snapped away from his mobile power pack between his shoulders. He steadied himself, the pod had crashed its way into a make shift gun position, flattening the bunker beneath it. He shared a glance with Gerhet and nodded. The assault ramps fired their bolts and were sent hurtling downwards into the rubble. Remus sprung into action and the sound of armoured feet rang off the ramps. 

++Bolter Link!++ 

He ordered his suits internal systems to activate and he felt the whir of servos as his auto senses adjusted into programmed patterns. A cross hair formed on his visor, flickering and highlighting objects and strewn rubble in a white kill zone. He rounded the transport and saw men picking themselves up from the ground. A rebel cradled his limp and shattered arm to his chest as he caught sight of the giant yellow Space Marine. The rebel was out lined with a white silhouette as the cross hair turned red, Romulus squeezed the trigger and his weapon did the rest of the work. It bucked in his hands as it sent a bolt round streaking through the air to explode the highlighted rebel. The silhouette faded to black with a chime as the cross hair acquired another target. 

---

The gigantic assault pod sat in a crater of blood and body parts, hissing as it cooled. The rebel sergeant had heard the screaming through the vox unit on the operators back and would be prepared for the Space Marines when they came rushing out. He nodded to the man knelt before him, the large tube of grey metal resting upon his shoulder. 

"Be ready to fire at the bastards as soon as that thing opens, they won't know what hit them!"

The assault ramp fired its bolts and the vast door swung downwards to crash into the lake of offal below. A wave of gore filled water sprayed upwards and the guardsman fired the missile launcher. The tiny warhead spiralled forward through the sheet of smoke rolling across the battlefield and detonated inside the pod. The Sergeant pumped his fist into the air and whooped. A whine filled the air, rising to a pitch that caused the ears to bleed. The Sergeant clutched at his head before his face formed a rictus of fear. The rebel with the missile launcher and the Sergeant were vaporized to nothing by a shimmering beam of heat that scorched the ground into a bubbling mess. Giant foot falls punched craters into the blood encrusted mud as the Mantle of Hate stamped forward on its massive pistons. The vast multi-melta fixed upon its right side spooled up its firing motor again as the Dreadnought cut a path of nuclear death through a mob of rebels running to intercept the Centurion. The living weapon lurched forward as a screeching chain blade bit into its gun arm. Servos whirred as the vehicle spun on its central axis to bring its full armament to bear on the Star Phantom who foolishly struck it. 

The whirring assault claw on its left side clamped shut on the Marines midriff, crushing into the ceramite casing and splintering the metal into the Marines innards. A gurgling roar bubbled from the brass rimmed vox grille as the Mantle of Hate squeezed the Marines innards out through its mouth. The Mantle released the pulped foe, letting it splash to the ground. The Dreadnoughts multiple sensor arrays triangulated the Centurions position and the giant machine thundered its way into the swarm of rebels. 

---

Callisto rammed his Bolter into the magnetic holster strapped to his armoured thigh as he roared down through the clouds. He braced himself, impacting on the top of the battle tank below him. He gripped the turret as the vast cannon swung about to target the Dreadnought cutting into the horde. He slung his chainblade and reached behind him to disengage the mag-locks on the melta device. The sound of metal rung out into the battle as he slammed the breaching charge onto the side of the Leman Russ. He spun the timer dial and punched his jump pack into life, kicking off from the tank he soared out into the air. The tanks commander decided to switch target at the last second to teach this Space Marine who landed in his firing line a lesson, the turret grinding down in preparation of obliterating the enemy. The explosion was immense, peppering Callisto with debris. He rolled his shoulders and laughed into his visor as the smoking remains of the tank cooked off in secondary detonations. 

A bolt round exploded against his shoulder guard, tearing a great crater into the ceramite layers. He spun round with the force of the shot and grimaced as five hulking bone white Marines lumbered through the smoke of the battlefield, firing from the hip at him. Bolt rounds detonated, sending chunks of earth scattering as he roared into the air on pillars of fire. 

From his elevated position he surveyed the battle field, his eidetic memory absorbing all the tactical information afforded him. He saw one of the Teeth go down under a hail of gunfire, his jet pack causing him to spiral uncontrollably into a mob of guardsmen, exploding in a ball of incandescent fire. Callisto spotted the Hydra flak gun thundering shells across the sky and narrowed his eyes behind his visor. He primed another melta charge and clutched it in his hand before streaking forwards for a taste of vengeance.

I absolutely love the look of the old school devastators- that targeting array on the helmet was always so cool to me (wish they'd update it and make them in plastic). My one concern about the model is that the thigh area is skinny by today's space marine standards. You may want to fatten them up with a layer of greenstuff.

I love all the older models and I'll be trying to incorporate as many as I can with updated war gear. I've never played with Green Stuff so this gives me the perfect excuse to start, thanks Chaplain.

Greetings and well met Brother Tyrax, 5th Crusade of the Marines Malevolent has arrived in system!

More Malevolents!! ;)
What you have done is looking good but I think you need to put another wash [gryph sepia] on your test model to sit in the recesses and then use a lighter yellow and dry brush/feather it in, the raised parts of the Marine.
Other than that,looking good and will keep checking in for updates!!

Thanks Furioso-Prime, I haven't seen a bad MM army done here so far. Tutorials are always welcome, obscure or no! Thank you for the help.

Oh, and your Dark Angels should be scared. ;)

+ Update +

Not much of one but I've been experimenting.

Posted Image

Messed about with dry brushing, the raised areas are more noticeable now. I'll be picking up a lot of different yellows and shades when I'm up at Warhammer World next weekend.

Posted Image

A close up of a re-wash on the boltgun and armour crevasses. I'm aware the highlighting on the fist is a little too raised and the paint isn't as thin as before, but it's a test model. All about experimentation after all. I've never once highlighted my models before, not intentionally anyway.

Posted Image

Close up on the Oath of Moment, I tried fine dripping the red wash over the wax to make it look as if it is dripping down the parchment which got a touch up itself.

So re-washed to make the joints of the armour darker, bit of a dry brush on the raised areas and tried my hand at very basic highlighting.

Update:

Begun work on my Sternguard squad, have 5 out of 7 so far, figured I'd start work on the first.

Posted Image

The start of the squad, they will all have Combi melta's and those models not sporting a combi melta will have a melta gun either dashed at their feet or slung upon their power pack.

Posted Image

Primed in Ulthuan Grey and Chaos Black.

Posted Image

Base coated in another layer of CB and Averland Sunset.

Posted Image

Washed to give the yellow depth.

Posted Image

The start of his details.

Posted Image

I coloured his loin cloth/tabard green to represent the Kolstrom Campaign (see sig), this will be a running theme in the army.

Posted Image

Details finished and given another wash.

Posted Image

Highlighting started in Yriel Yellow.

Posted Image

Flash to show recesses and detail.

Posted Image

Better shot of highlighting.

Posted Image

Bar the barrel drilling and base, he's done. Say hello to Veteran-Brother Madox (of no relation to the Thousand Sons).

Glory & Hate, brothers.

Update time. Been bitten by the bug as it were so...

Posted Image

Onto the Sergeant.

Posted Image

Barrel drilled, see I'm learning! :P

Posted Image

This guy had some serious craters from air bubbles and his finger tips on the power fist are buggered to all hell, but it's a Christmas present so I must make do.

Posted Image

Primed and ready for abuse.

Posted Image

Base coated.

Posted Image

Washed.

Posted Image

Details begun in earnest.

Posted Image

Pre Highlight shot.

Posted Image

Post Highlight and a tidy up.

Posted Image

Brutal criticism from my camera. Apparently wash hiding the resin in the deep joints is invisible to its beady eye. I honestly cannot see the resin areas by looking at the mini. Must have crap eyes.

Posted Image

REPRESENT!

I had declared this guy finished bar his base but in the last two photos I've now decided that tomorrow I'll give him a thorough inspection. I've got some super fine detail brushes in the post so I'll wait till they arrive before tackling those pesky resin patches.

Glory & Hate,

BT.

Okay. It's been a while now since I updated my WIP thread and if I'm honest, a heck of a lot has changed. My force make up has done a 360' on me and I've found myself hopelessly swept up with the Black Templar Codex for my Marines Malevolent and it just works.

There was a four vs four at WW the other day and I joined in as a rogue element who could become anyone's ally. The game make up was Dark Angels leading Ultramarines, Blood Angels and an Imperial Guard army against a swarm of Tyranid who had trapped a DA Librarian in the central objective. Orks showed up to join in the ruck and a Nurgle Warband emerged from the swamps to consume the IG as zombies. I drop podded on the middle edge of the board into an Aegis line and I was suddenly up for grabs.

Safe to say I wiped out the BA player, crushed half of the Dark Angels and then cut a bloody path through the Orks before I was declared Team Evil Bastard and prevented the Loyal army from reaching their objective. It was a nice dynamic, I was potentially Loyal and a Renegade, it just depended on the Loyalist forces, who attacked me first.

Then today I went against my brothers Nurgle warband and my friends IG in a 3 way deathmatch and came out on top. The army make up is a hammer blow.

Anyway, onto the models I have been rapidly assembling after a massive spending fit over the last month.

Also found a use for lots of my old Knights Vermillion, rather than them gathering dust they were butchered for a worthy cause.

Despite them using lots of BT stuff from the upgrade packs, I've gone for the less obvious items and stuck mainly to weapons and the absolutely bitchin' sword decorations.

793689_10152533639920156_955650395_o.jpg

Then I realised I won't be using shotguns on my Neophytes so I got bored and slightly creative, figured as the Malevolent's are pressed for equipment that the younger marines will have to make do, so this dude scavenged an antique bolt rifle from one of their battles. I've shaved it down so it's a bit more streamlined with the body of the shotgun.

The bolter marines of Squad Claudius with the man himself. I've tried to go for a grizzled individual look to each one, as though they really are wearing lots of different MK's of armour like they are supposed to.

The Champion of Hate. My counts as Emperor's Champion. I've modeled him in full MK6 as he deserves to have a full suit of armour. Also, his Black Sword is sheathed to give him the callous, stalking nature I envision a grizzled murderer of the Emperor to have. His free hand will be cleaned up and drilled so it's empty.

Next step is cleaning the last and missed bits and then onto painting these bad boys.

What do you lads think? I just wanted to share my budding Crusade in the name of Glory and Hate.

Thanks,

BT

but the last guy stalking here...I would but a knife in his hand in a downward pose (blade towards ground...) like he is thinking you are not worthy of the sword but only my knife...

Cheers Capitano

 

I hate the standard Scout heads and figured the ones I used would add a little flavour to the squad with Neophytes. 

 

The more I look at the Emp. Champion the more I feel I should put something in that hand. The knife is a good suggestion, I may well try that, I'm sure I've got some nasty looking shanks in my bitz box.

yeah the reverse knife is always a good fall back...

 

I have a few squads kit bashed together and the none champion second in command type guy has that set up...seeing that he is Chaos it is ready to walk up next to the Champion and just plunge it into his throat...

Thanks guys. I do have another update for you and some painted miniatures!

Capitano, I went with the reverse knife and it looks pimpin'.

Heathens, Glory and Hate, brother. Hopefully I can do the Emperors Finest justice.

Although, painted is a liberal term, they aren't the best but they are my best so they'll do. Bar a few touch ups where my flash has been a cruel, cruel mistress here's the head of the snake that is the 3rd Crusade.

Big Ugly Babies. Lysandros on the left, Arxion on the right. Deployed via drop pod side by side onto the battlefield and have already EATEN an entire Death Company squad to themselves.

The black ink I used to smooth up the chevron lines is apparently immune to flash, it honestly doesn't look that garish in real life but that's why I use the flash, to show up all the imperfections. Another coat of black over that, me thinks.

Chapter symbols, my first proper freehand ever.

Crusade Centurion Remus Tyrax primed and base coated.

Close up of (Quasi Modo) facial details. His thousand yard stare is a little less intimidating when using the eye to view the model. Honest.

Chapter symbol and power weapon. This will be the theme I'll be keeping for Power weapons, I always have. Nice stark white for the blade or fist and purple flames(ish, kinda, if you look in the right light) sweeping up the weapon.

After some touch ups and turning the flash off to make myself feel better, I present Remus Tyrax practically done, until I bother to make a HoH thread.

My Champion of Hate, Brother Judas. My reasoning behind such an un-ornamented Marine being the lead of my army is a tiny bit of fluff I came up with. Basically the Champions of Hate answer to none, only taking suggestions from the Crusade leader at the time, this however doesn't give them free reign over the Crusade itself, merely their own actions. Upon insertion into the drop zone, the Champion of Hate will simply just unstrap himself, clamber out of whatever vehicle and proceed to kill until killed or until the war is over. Then he'll just saunter back when the Crusade is making its extraction preparations, without a sound the whole time, left to scream and rage inside his own helmet. The Chapter artificers remove all vox capability from within the Armour of Hate, the Marine inside only able to receive transmissions. The Champion is left behind if he doesn't return from murdering what ever takes his fancy, by the time the Crusade moves off world. They wait five years, in that time if he doesn't return via his own means, they will appoint a new Champion from the veterans that constant war has taken its toll upon. The Champion will just walk about the battlefield, battering down any who get in his way, not necessarily killing them. He'll only draw his ancient blade upon an enemy he deems worthy, presenting itself to him.

Brother Judas is as of yet, un-blooded and hasn't drawn his power blade since donning the black Armour of Hate.

The Chapter Symbol, which I am pretty proud of, I think I got it spot on this time.

823356_10152548639815156_560339771_o.jpg

Just a rear shot to a ) show me what I need to touch up and b ) to show you guys just how sparse the Armour of Hate is. When they finally snap and something inside their brain makes them go doolally, the Chaplaincy will strip their armour of any and all ornamentation they have gathered over their centuries of warfare and paint them entirely black, then they are attached to whatever Crusade is lacking a Champion.

Thanks for viewing guys and as usual, I'd like opinions, no matter how harsh.

BT.

I'm a huge fan of the conversions/kitbashing and your dreadnoughts! Awesome! And it's also nice to see another templarish player, if I may say so.

BC, thanks for the kind words fella, my old Blood Angel army was very uniform and I tried to start a decent kit bash at the start of 5th, but never got round to making any real head way on the project. However now, it's time to get stuck in and I've currently got 1'500 points worth of unpainted but assembled just waiting for the painting line. When it came to stating army lists I used the Vanilla 'dex and it felt very flat when I looked at it properly, then I flicked through the Templar 'dex while at a friends and fell in love with the rule set and I just figured the army make up was perfect for the way I want to play my Malevolents. 

 

So, it's snowing here. Which means more actual painted models. 

 

See below for some very angry wasps. 

 

 

 

The first five men for Squad Callisto of my assault element, the Teeth of Vengeance. 

 

 

Sergeant Callisto, primed and his body is ready. 

 

 

Basecoated, before tidying. 

 

 

Washed for the dirty foot slogger feel I'm going for and tidied up. 

 

 

All close combat weapons will be decorated with chevrons. Also, quite pleased with the blood splatter. 

 

 

First ever attempt at free-handing a designation symbol. I used a micro pen, that's why it looks a little, well, drawn on. It'll do the job for now until I can come back at a later stage and competently (yeah,right.) re-paint them. 

 

 

For now, Callisto done. 

 

 

Angry Wasp number 2 ready and base coated. 

 

 

Angry Wasp number 2 done. 

 

 

Flamer marine prepped and ready for detail and wash. 

 

 

Post detail, pre wash. 

 

 

 

Flamer Marine done and made as pretty as I want him to be. 

 

 

 

Holy mold line Batman! I honestly hadn't picked up on that one, ah well. Here they are, first core Marines of my army completed (bar obvious bits that'll annoy me weeks later that I'll just have to try and fix. 

 

I think all I have to say as a sort of header for this force is that they will all have a rough and ready look. I want them to represent the Marines in my fiction (you can find the Librarium link in my signature below!) where the Campaign they are embroiled in is desperate and near hopeless, where Marines will be given different roles with the rising body count. Slap dash marking and all that. I know I'm not the best painter but I am pulling out the 'fluff' shield -wink wink, nudge nudge-. 

 

Cheers, BT

Small update, more snow, more paint. 

 

 

Vengeance Marine 4 primed and basecoated.

 

 

Vengeance Marine 4 detailed, washed and finished for now. 

 

 

Vengeance Marine 5 primed and basecoated. 

 

 

Vengeance Marine 5 detailed, washed and finished for now. 

 

 

First five Vengeance marines of my 20 man assault element.

 

 

The painted parts so far. There is still a whole case waiting to be painted. 

 

I figure if I commit myself to my own vow of 5 marines by the end of every week, or a tank, then I'll be keeping a decent project/painting ratio. 

 

Cheers, 

 

BT
