If you've got the bits, good to use them tongue.png It seems that it was well worth it too, as some background came to me also:

 

 

The Sunder keep many of their traditions and procedures from their days as loyalists, in some ways even more so as traitors. As a brother would once aspire to join the Kindred as the pinnacle of martial art, so he does as a Chaos Marine. Joining such an exalted cadre is surely the best way to acquire more glory, and find more to devote themselves to for Slaanesh? The progression of a Marine darkly mirrors that of a loyalist chapter, even down to such veterans leading their newer brothers in battle. What better way to strengthen the Sunder, and therefore lead to great glory in the future? Of course, it is conveniently a great way to steal more glory for yourself...

 

As the nascent Chaos band formed under the Kindred's auspices they slowly acquired new members as those beneath them proved themselves before veteran eyes, and those of their new patron. The Kindred's famous (soon to be infamous) Tartaros armour could not supply them all, but thanks to being free of the leash of the Codex Astartes small bands of power armoured Kindred formed and started gaining their own glory.

 

In time the Sunder settled into their new form, and their way of devoting themselves to their god. This lead to an offshoot of those Kindred most devoted to Slaanesh, but no less in their skill and bonds of brotherhood. Taking on golden masks, all blessed under a Dark Crozius, they formed dark pacts and called themselves "the faith takers". In battle they are utterly silent, even their bolters and chainswords eerily so - at least until they bite into flesh. Yet they burst into maniacal laughter with apparently randomness in the midst of battle, and it is claimed this is the moment that their opponent's resolve is broken - their faith taken to be fed to Slaanesh.

The deathmask looks very eerie and unnatural, quite fitting to the fluff you've got for the group. I like that background for them as well.

It's one of those things that seems to have come together by itself, but it helps motivate me to get them on the table biggrin.png

Right arm is temporary to test the pose, but I think it works smile.png Unfortunately this is as far as I get for now as I cut my finger quite badly so hobby is on pause sad.png I have all the bits I need to make my Chosen now at least (all 20...) so I'll try and work towards that goal. In the meantime I suppose this gives me time to play with builds. I find myself leaning increasingly towards stabby...

I know how it's perceived in the english speaking community and I already try to tone it down but I barely notice when it's too much since it's normal for me.


So yeah, I'm really not rude it's basically just cultural differences that act against me here. Again, I apologize.

I like the death mask mod a lot! Removing the crest (or whatever you call it!) bit completely separates the head from it's BA look - at first look I thought it was a bare head until I looked closer :) Any doubts I had before have vanished I'm keen to see some painted up :tu:

I was experimenting with it, as it's a bit of work to remove the crest and clean the head up (not completely finished it in the example). I'm keen to get a squad done but I need to get more time and hobby mojo currently. Maybe I can find a spare plume from another kit for the Champ, as the Sunder do like them ;)

 

I also need to decide what I'm equipping the Chosen with. I think I'm set on CC builds - at least to start with - but still need to decide on what choices. The fist on the Champ makes sense for those 3 attacks, but maybe a second might be wise. Otherwise some lightning claws (paired?) and power swords should do the trick :)

For the Chosen I'd go either Power Sword or Power Axe and as side weapon combi-bolter, combi-plasma or plasma pistols.

That way they stay cheap-ish and they are a nice allrounder unit that benefits from the always strike first trait and the double shooting stratagem. Definitely a unit I'd want to use the FnP psychic power on or put in a transport since they still die as easily as any other PA Marine but pack more punch so they'll be rather high on the priority list for the enemies anti-infantry. ^^

I keep looking at the Rhino as something that might get more love once I have some Chosen :P A few plasma pistols will probably work well given I hope to keep them busy in melee!

That PF guy looks cool - maybe a little Loyalist looking, but the paint scheme / the perverse nature of him looking like a loyalist suits the theme well.
