So I'm going about starting my 4th redition of my beloved 4th Legion. I plan on keeping this one as it has such a perfect beginning, I have long since sold the others. I plan on using this rendition of the army to start with a Heresy edition of them, then expand in to both a Chaos version and a Space Marines version. Those are both long term though.

 

So to start, here is my test model:

 

1620753_852282158146030_6175897788107245

 

10698605_852282168146029_277572439804863

 

997088_852282178146028_76060297782805395

 

I like the GW decals for the Legion emblem, so I'll probably use them over the molded FW pads, and over free handing them.

 

I am going to start with a heavy armor army, as I always loved the "other" part of the Legions specialty of massed tanks, ala Tallarn. I went with Mars pattern tanks to conserve some funds. Once my FW arrives and I get everything assembled I'll get the beginning pictures up.

Looks awesome. The pose is simple. But strong. I like it. Keep up the good work.

Looks great, man! Nice choice on the legs too! I've been using the loyalist legs on my Night Lords because I'm not a huge fan of the regular CSM leg sculpts smile.png Keep it up!

Sooooo I got some pretty pre-paint, but assembled, models for your viewing pleasure. I'm still waiting for my FW order to show up, so this is just a couple characters and some GW tanks.

 

Master of Signals:

Apocathary: (I will most likely swap the chain sword out and make him a Centurian Primaris Medicae)

 

10299108_857753277598918_679892456857541

 

Tanks! (All mars pattern, but with twin linked bolters instead of storm bolters.)

 

10713009_857753227598923_797688798842738

 

Tops come off for interior painting, and to put the tracks on after I paint them separate.

 

7605_857753247598921_5946081771842135038

 

I will probably get started on one of the tanks with in the next week or so. I need to find away to squeeze it in around all my other projects.

Since I have just started thinking about doing the IW as my traitor legion, I will be coming back to this thread for sure. Looks very nice so far. Love the first guy. 


The Tervigon and Termagants on my right unleash a salvo of spines and grubs at my small platoon, forcing Commissar Hogan to order his men to bite the Emperor's glorious dirt and go to ground. Casualties are light, and under Hogan's gaze everyone claims the dirt is delicious.

 

Six-barreled rotary cannon capable of solving 6,000 problems per minute. I love assault cannons.

Good luck with the tanks. I'm looking forward to seeing the Apothecary painted up. Always been fond of that mini.

Got a little done on my test vehicle. Top is pretty much done for basic colors. I'll need to do weather and all that jazz once I get the tracks and bottom done. Taking my time on these.

Got some more work on the Vindicator done.

I need to mask off the chevrons, done some more details and highlighting, then do weathering still. Plus whatever decals I decide to add.

 

On the plus side I should be getting my FW stuff tomorrow, so I'll have a lot of assembly to do. Happy Happy assembly.

Vindicator is pretty much finished. All that is left is if I decided to add any decals or markings. I'm pretty happy with the weathering, it was my first time work with weathering powders and working up to such a muddy finish.
