Greetings fellow hobbists,
I'm currently involved in several Great Crusade/ Horus Heresy projects. I have built about 100 Space Marines, more or less , alongside several vehicles and I'd like to share those models with the B&C community.
I'll start with a Rampager Squad, one of the first quick conversions I made for the project, for accompany Angron on the battlefield and a Primus Medicae with Jump Packs for a Son of Horus army.
Let me know what do you think about them.
Rampager with Twin Falax Blades
Rampager with Barb-hook Lash
Primus Medicae with Jump Pack
Note on the Fluff aspect of the Project:
The purpose of this project is a twofold one: the miniatures are used to represent both the original Legiones Astartes they belong to, both a Space Marine force for the “standard” 40K period.
I really like the Great Crusade/ Horus Heresy period since it depicts several of my favorite events from 40K universe but I also want my armies to tell a piece of story set the current 40K timeline as they fight on the table. Several of my friends are willing to play their 40K armies against HH ones and I’m planning a small narrative campaign.
So I found the solution: in the 30K context the miniatures of this project represent their actual Legiones while in a 40K context they represent a Chapter who decided to leave the “center” of the Imperial Society during the Age of Apostasy/ Age of Redemption and rebuilt themselves into a demi-legion before reentering the wide Galactic scene. Just like a sort of Carcharodons-like (namely a “no one know who controls them, from where they come etc” ) Space Marine force but with a the organization, and numbers, of the old Legiones; everything made “easier” by strong connections with several circles within mechanicum and an abundance on STCs and resources from their explorations (I’ll explain that point when I’ll write the fluff )
In few words every Legion from the FW books will represent a chapter of the demi-legion with every Primarch model and rules counting as the leader of that given chapter and Horus count as the supreme commander of the demi-legion.
I’m sure many of you will ask: How do you justify a Primarch-like being?
Well if we analyze the stats of the Primarchs from Betrayal book we can clearly see they are nothing god-like in gaming terms. Every of them is like a Monstrous Creature with advanced equipment (armours, weapons etc). So they may represent SM heroes enhanced by some tech acquired during expeditions in the unknown regions of the Galaxy
So allow me to introduce the :
I’ll try to write something more detailed about them in the future, in the meantime you can give a look at minis and sorry if the Fluff-aspect made no sense. It’s a complex project and it needs more words to be explained. I’ll try to do it ASAP but writing fluff requires time, usually
P.S.: If you find other Void Leviathans around the web, I don’t know if the name has been used in the past, they are not related to my fan made project, neither my project is reference to them, if other Void Leviathans ever exist
