"I have voyaged the dark stars for five times the lifespan of a common man, long before our glorious Emperor made me one of his, and I tell you this: monsters crawl the blasted faces of myriad uncounted worlds - creatures so foul they would stop a man's heart just to see, and that is only the start of the true nightmare, for there is no mortal mind that can encompass the wickedness of the alien in all its formsand designs.

 

So then, why should it surprise the wise man that in such a galaxy of terror, that mumanity should need monsters of its own - if we are to survive?"

Hello B&C and welcome to my Istvaan V themed World Eaters army!

 

I started this army in late 2010 when FW first released the older servo armor variants and have since then added more and more units. FW realy kept me busy by releasing rules (at the beginning I played them with the Chaos Space Marine Codex) and adding more and more units. When you look closly you will see the older units in this army, even tho I later added decals and stuff, over the years my paintingstyle slightly changed. I tend to paint less hazardstripes and more metals... getting more and more rid of the comic look. Anyway here is a groupshot I took in September:

And some of the new units missing in the groupshot:

 

 

 

 

You can find closeups on my Flickr account.

 

 

Right now I am working on some characters from A D-B' Betrayer, one of them beeing the Ember Queen laugh.png But more on that later, so stay tuned!

It is great to see you post this beautiful army here finally!  I was so inspired by your work that I've been gathering bits and kits to build some WE myself.  I can't wait to see the Warhound with some paint on her.

Looks like the old storm trooper heads.

As for the army, beautiful work. The red butchers with lightning claws look brutal and you've managed to convey the sence of motion on your assault marines.

Thank you guys very much smile.png

 

 

Exactly, the Heads on the Scouts are from the old metal Stormtroopers and the bearded one on the sergeant is from Victoria Miniatures.

 

 

I. Love. That. Lighting!

How was it putting that beast together?

It went together very nicely. Some wings where a little bit bend, but nothing a hairdryer can't fix.

Also I was very surprised about the little amount of parts, the fusilage is actually one big chunk of resin and you just add the wings and guns to it.

Reading Heathens' question earlier, I was going to ask how many parts it came in, so, that's good to know. :)

 

Beautiful army, btw. Thanks for sharing!

This is a marvelous army to look at, the paint is a little too pristine for my tastes, especially since it's a heresy era army- but the quality of the modelling and painting cannot be denied.

 

Also, good to know that the Victoria miniatures heads match up in scale with the 40k 28mm; my idea for head swaps on old metal scout bodies  as neophytes are entirely possible as a future project now! 

 

Can we get some close ups of tanks like the vindicator and spartan? I'm a sucker for old metal vindies!

Those Red Butchers!  I thought the "easter bunny" photoshop of them in the incoming heresy models thread had ruined them for me, but now I want to get some after all. Did you do some head swaps or do they come with more than one unhelmeted head?

 

That's an amazing army you have. And now I want to paint some World Eaters myself...

Thank you so much for the warm welcome!

 

Can we get some close ups of tanks like the vindicator and spartan? I'm a sucker for old metal vindies!

Here you go:

 

 

This are the most recent pictures of the Spartan. I added some trackguards later on, after seeing Sheeps amazing conversion.

 

 

Like the Rhinos he is based on the actual plastic Rhino and converted with plasticcard and as many parts I could fit into from the metal Vindicator to get the retrofeeling biggrin.png

The Rhinos are btw conversions because when I build them, FW had not jet released the Deimos pattern ones.

 

Are you going to get Khârn the Bloody?

Yes I propably will, the Khârn model I made back in the days looks a bit outdated as it was based on an Artwork that does not fit anymore to the newer Blacklibrary and FW fluff.

 

Those Red Butchers!  I thought the "easter bunny" photoshop of them in
the incoming heresy models thread had ruined them for me, but now I want
to get some after all. Did you do some head swaps or do they come with
more than one unhelmeted head?

Yes I replaced some heads to get a bit more variaty into the unit. Sadly legs, torso and head are all cast together.

 

What's next on the list of things to make and paint? smile.png

 

Well for one part there is the Ember Queen, a Warhound I am working on. And on the other hand, I want to build some characters from Aaron Dembski-Bowdens Betrayer. I build already my favorite one:

 

Codizier Esca

 

Right now I am painting Kargos Bloodspitter, Apothecarius in Kharns commandsquad. There is a realy cool illustration from Mark Gibbons of future Kargos, where he is a immortal Champion of Khorne, which inspired me for pose and bits.

 

 

Also I have ideas for Kharns standardbarer Jeddek and at some point I will do Delvarus, together with some mk3 elite shipboarders from the Triarii.

That Mark Gibbons illustration is one of my favorites from the old days, and it's translating very well to your conversion though that fist might look better if it were turned over...
