And the 82nd submit the completion of their vow.

 

Hell Hound Lambda-Two aka "Lucky 2"

Cadian 82nd Special Operations Group; the Ghost Hunters

According to the official records and papers of the Administratum, the Cadian 82nd Special Operations Group is a simple Shock Troop Regiment of the Astra Militarum. Brave, loyal, faithful and decorated with Battle Honours in the Emperors name to be sure, but no more or less than would be expected of the Sons of Cadia.

 

The truth is a somewhat different matter; the 82nd are permanently assigned to support the Office of the Holy Inquisition, specifically under the control of Inquisitor Varchilde of the Ordo Malleus.  In this function the 82nd prosecute actions under the Inquisitor’s direction and supply support and man power for Varchilde’s war bands and kill teams. If a situation warrants it, the 82nd will be used in conjunction with the formidable Space Marines of the Ordo Malleus; the fabled Grey Knights!

 

In turn the Cadian 82nd receive the support and favour of the Holy Inquisition; the Regiment is well supplied with equipment and resources and can make use of rare and specialised weapons should the occasion call.

 

The Cadian 82nd are a fleet based force, moving quickly from theatre to theatre as circumstances dictate. This mobility follows through in their tactical doctrine; highly mechanised with drop trooper support for rapid insertion. 

 

The 82nd maintains a high number of veteran and specialist units, including a number of psychic-sensitives; telepaths are deployed among the 82nd’s command structure as another means of communication between Inquisitor Varchilde’s eclectic forces, and to provide a measure of defence against the warp-beasts and witches they battle against.

 

Command of the 82nd is held by Colonel Staysback; a gruff battle hardened officer who leads his troops from the front line. Discipline and courage are the watch words of the 82nd, but Staysback recognises and values initiative and tactical acumen in his officers. His men are value resources in the Emperor’s service and their lives are not to be spent carelessly.

 

Hell Hound Lambda-Two

The Cadian 82nd Special Operations Group are currently on deployment on the verdant jungle world of Karsh-5, fighting a serious of mobile engagements against Eldar pirates.  The xeno forces are led by a wily and cunning farseer witch who has eluded capture and elimination at all turns. The eldar psyker hides in the shadows of the jungle vegetation, using his witchcraft to confound, confuse and kill the Emperor’s loyal servants.

 

The 82nd have deployed Hell Hounds in support of the troops tasked with rooting out the xenos. The Hell Hounds of Lambda squadron are employed as a kill team in this venture, having specific instructions to seek out, engage and destroy the farseer and his retinue.  The hounds have a weapon load out specifically chosen to destroy enemy infantry in heavy cover, and are equipped with dozer blades so to allow them to better negotiate the treacherous terrain.

 

One might argue to draw service as crew on a hell hound would be a terrible piece of luck, but the vehicle crews of the 82nd would argue that service on the sturdy Lambda-Two would be something of the good kind! Lamdba-Two aka “Lucky 2” has a reputation for serving her crew well, and coming through scrapes where other tanks would not.  So much so that traditions grow out of the stories; “Lucky 2” is bedecked with lucky charms, notes of thanks, and tokens of victory; as crew men join the tank each adds a small piece of their own luck to the eclectic mix of tokens and hopes the old girl will keep them just as safe!

 

Lambda-Two aka “Lucky 2”: Hell Hound, Hull Heavy Flamer, Dozer Blade, Relic Plating. For those of a narrative bent, the good luck talismans of “Lucky 2” can “count as” Camo Netting.

I agree Commissar elmo, that's some fine work indeed! I've not even come up with an idea for my vehicle backstory yet but I'm going to have my work cut out for me at this rate :P

Will upload a better pic and all the fluff tomorrow.

61st Daltarn Forge Guards

 

The 61st Daltarn Forge Guards are one of several regiments specifically founded to defend the various planets of the Forge system Daltarn, The 61st are an armoured regiment who are tasked with rapidly deploying to bolster the defences of areas under heavy attack. They have gained a reputation for extreme heavy handedness even in situations where victory is assured; Marshall Andrask is often quoted as saying “unless the enemy have been pummelled into patches of bloody pulp on the floor by more tank shells than is perhaps necessary can you really be sure they are dead?” As such they are rarely seen without deploying one of their 4 super heavy tanks regardless of enemy numbers.

Despite relying on large airborne transports for rapid deployment the regiment has never been overly fond of aircraft, so for reasons unknown to some of the more balanced commanders of the Daltarn system the 61st elects to only keep 2 Valkyries flying at any one time.  In a similar vein the infantry units of the 61st are often seen as more of a hindrance than a help in combat and are pretty much exclusively used to guard the “Armadillo” mobile ammunition storage tankers.

Due to strong ties with several of the local Manafactorums the regiment is rarely short of parts or ammunition and is well respected by quite a few of the high ranking Magos, despite Marshall Andrask refusing to have the Baneblade Indomitable restored to full pristine condition citing “No one before me and no one after me has or will take away the scars earned by that tank and the crews that have bled and fought in her, she is living testament to the unbreakable will of the regiment and the Daltarn system as a whole. We will not surrender, we will not give ground, we will not show fear in the face of the enemy for we are Indomitable”

 

Baneblade "Indomitable"

 

The Baneblade “Indomitable” is the oldest tank of its class within the regiment, having defended the Daltarn system for 600 years without fail. Its presence on the battlefield is a true inspiration to the men and women serving alongside it as there are many victories attributed to its name, most notably the siege of the ammunition plant on Daltarn Sigma. 

The siege of the plant by Ork forces lasted 9 weeks with thousands and thousands of casualties on both sides, the key turning point was the defence of the main gate where after a 13 hour long push to take the gate and approximately two thousand casualties the enemy was driven back. The defensive line of tanks and guardsmen held their ground with the commander afraid of what might happen if they abandoned their dug in positions, the engines of the Indomitable roared in defiance at such a display of cowardice! Despite having barely any ammunition, tracks clogged with dead Orks and huge chunks of armour missing from its hull it surged forward alone towards the centre of the horde, determined to find the enemy commander and end the siege once and for all. It eventually found its target 2 miles away from the gate and with the remnants of a burning Deff Dread still attached to its hull the Indomitable bought its main cannon to bare on the enemy warlord tearing all remnants of the foul creature from existence. Seeing this the commander (name redacted(executed for dereliction of duty) of the defensive line ordered his troops forward to assault the remaining Ork forces and as such the battle was over within the next 2 hours.

Great work Ldorte! It certainly looks like its been through the wars, an excellent completion I think the battle damage turned out well. Don't forget the write up pieces for vehicle and regiment to climb the ranks to Sergeant :D Good to see more progress on your Russ too baz, it's looking nearly done. The colours and details you're doing are really looking good keep up the speedy work :tu:

Not long until Big Guns closes for new recruits, so if you want to join in the great crusade time is running out! Most have got to the WIP stage which is great but we still have some stragglers - could this be our fabled 100%? Only you can decide that...

Painting is complete but needs weathering and battle damage, but I have a campaign game on Monday. Seems appropriate enough to weather, damage and name it dependng on the outcome!

Browns and Leadbelcher done (though the latter hasn't yet been drybrushed or shaded but for the punisher cannon).

And heat staining on the barrel. The photo looks bloody awful on my PC screen. It looked fine on the phone (and in real life ;) ):

The cylindrical cover near the muzzle(s) will be painted up...something special.

I, Chefzilla, being on not so sound of mind and body. Upload these images for consideration. However after looking at some of the other entrants now feel most sheepish in my attempt. You guys put out some really fantastic models.

I bring you Knight Commander Pask in his Punisher now attached to the 2nd Cavalry Regiment.
 
The 2nd Cavalry can trace it's lineage all the way back to Terra in the  year 1836. When they were formed as the Second Regiment of Dragoons to fight the Seminole indian tribe. This makes them the longest continually operating cavalry unit in the Imperium. The 2nd Cav has been at the forefront of battle since that time. Distinguishing itself time and time again. The motto of 2nd Cav, Toujours Pret, which translates to Always Ready has been the rallying cry for it's cav troopers since that time. You will always find the 2nd Cav at the forefront of any armored spearhead. Its tank leading the charge into any enemy defense. Fast moving and hard hitting. Using maneuver, firepower and shock effect to close with and destory any and all enemies of the Imperium.
 
Leading the way as a hard hitting, armored heavy force the 2nd Cav is know for it's flexibility in battle. Giving it the ability to succesfully accomplish almost any kind of mission. 2nd Cav most recently working very closely with Sharpe's Rifles in battling the Archenemy and it's forces lead by Urlock Gaur in the Sabbat Crusade.
 
'Eagle 6'
The command tank of E Trp 2nd Sqd, 2nd Cav has changed hands on several occasions and the designation of Eagle 6 has changed hands almost as much. As commanders are killed or transferred to new units. The latest itteration is the Punisher(Bullet Hose) variant of the Leman Russ. This particular Punisher has served with the E Troop for almost 85 years and has seen action on several planets within the Sabbat System. One of the most important contributions was during the capture of Balhaut.
 
2nd Cav on orders to flank around the capitol dispatched a heavy recon screen into an industrial area. This screen included 2 Salamander recon tanks supported by 2 Leman Russ Battle Tanks and the Punisher 'Bullet Hose'. This screen was attacked and after fierce fighting that destroyed the Salamanders and the Battle Tanks left Bullet Hose immobilized, with no comms and  on it's own against a battalion of Blood Pact troops. The tank then commanded by Sergeant Lafayette 'Wardaddy' Pool stood as the only armor protecting the entire flank of the battle group. One particular assault had Bullet Hose surrounded by troops and the only thing to save her and her crew was the igniting of the fire barrels around her hull.
After 19 hours of intense fighting that left Bullet Hose desperately low on ammo, with 2 crewmembers killed and Pool losing a leg. They were finally relieved. Final kill tally was 275 Blood Pact troops and another 300 wounded.
