"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 But more on that later, so stay tuned!
