BionicBrain, sockwithaticket: Thanks brothers, I appreciate the comments.
Warlord Torvold: Here ya go!
Biohazard: Thanks dude! That helmets pretty cool, would make for a good World Eater. I don't think you've used it yet.
Congrats on the little one!
Olis: I can definitely see the Executioners symbology as well, but I also see a lot of other things in the model. When I was in the process on deciding on what direction I wanted to go, and this took like years, I thought about the idea of creating an obscure chapter that got its lineage from a successor chapter. I even came across the Iron Champs, a successor of the Executioners. It's a cool idea. But the Doom Slayers are Ultramarines. This will play a huge part in their background. I also want them to have a Rogue Trader feel, so their origins need to stay as vanilla as possible so I can twist their current pathos. Their story will be told!!! I just got to paint the little psychopaths first.
The Doom Slayers would have approved of the Wardian Space Marine Codex. They are right there with Ward. They see all other chapters/legions as something less then Ultramarine. And of course they see themselves as better then any other Ultra successor because of their own deeds. Their direct descent from the Ultramarines grants them a great sense of arrogance and hubris. So there's a little more background for you. Let me know how that sounds.
Of course this type of attitude can only lead to more and more tabletop war.

With Odysseus Cerberus (counts as Dante) this is the current force that I want to build with this WIP
thread. I have about five troops from various squads built and base coated. I also have one of the Stormravens primed and off the sprue. I still have a ton of work, but this is the general direction going forward.
Decals. Totally awesome experience to make my own Chapter badge. I think they turned out alright. It was quite a process but a lot of fun. A couple of pictures, no highlights on anything yet. Thanks for checking it out. There is only war!!!!
