Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

 

 

-The skald Wilian Henlaey, Circa M.2

‘-Can you hear them my brothers? The pitiful shrieks echo through the void, like a flock of crows caught in a firestorm: their cries lost to the inferno´s roar as it consumes them. The slave-children of Lychaeus are no more, their father’s folly has led them to their doom, and now only their ashes remain.’

- Dust Seer Malkoan, Librarius, Pale Nomads Chapter, XIX Legion. 606th Fleet, Excertus Imperialis. Circa 601.006M31.



‘- I know not what madness has beset Horus Lupercal and the Wolves, nor does it matter. They were our sworn brothers and we wrought war upon the foes of Man for more than a hundred years side-by-side, but that was yesterday. Now they and their ilk are but prey beneath our blades – my hunters will see to that.’

- Consul-Praevian Olakh Sah, Pale Nomads Chapter, XIX Legion. 606th Fleet, Excertus Imperialis. Circa 685.006M31.

 



‘No, we are not re-deploying to Kiavahr, Fleetmistress, the Legion have spoken and we are of one mind. Let the Raven Lord and his little birds flutter against the storm as best they can, our ´father´ made our position perfectly clear when he sent us into the void so long ago, and even if he escapes Lupercal’s talons he will not recall us. No, we fight as we always have: for the Emperor and the Emperor alone. Let the Primarch and his insipid children rot in their graves: we are sons of Terra and the Emperor, we are the 19th Legion. Dust Clad, the Pale Nomads! We will make the Warmaster remember the hidden blades that brought his Legion so many of its victories, and he will pay for that memory with the blood of his sons!’

- Centurion Khargun Sharn, Company Commander, XIX Legion. 606th Fleet, Excertus Imperialis. Circa 689.006M31.

 



‘The Dust Seers whisper of foul portents surrounding the fallen legions, dark things, wyrdling things. No matter, we shall endure, as we endured the psyk-wrougt weapons from before Old Night, wielded by the Tyrant of Ursch as we cast his armies into bloody ruin on the Asiatic plains, as we endured the scouring of the xenos-infested moons of Jupiter and the stygian nightmares that boiled forth from the depths of Lysithea as we purged it with Volkite-fire and dread Phosphex. We shall see their equal in both horror and hardship before this… rebellion has run its course.’

- Ancient Kromus, Contemptor Dreadnought, Deliverers Echelon, XIX Legion. 606th Fleet, Excertus Imperialis. Circa 692.006M31.

 



‘-Alright, alright! Settle down you mutts! Let me give you the run-down before you return to that mucking about that you sorry excuses for legionnaires call ´knife drills´. In his infinite wisdom our fearless Preatorian council, together with the company masters, the Librarius and the Ancients, have decided that we’ll call quits on things here in the outer rim and make haste towards the galaxy proper to engage whatever traitor forces we can find and give them a good thrashing! Yes, yes, I know, we’ll be taking on our former brothers without support, reinforcements and with limited prospects of resupply. So you lot will remain on basic rations, - stop whining trooper Kaon. We will be doing it with the 11 Battalions of the Legion, supported by the brave boys and girls of the 638th Solar Auxilia, Magos Askar’s Reductor war-covenant, the scions of honoured house Scipio, our war-engines of the Legio Praesagius and the forty ships of the line of the intrepid 606th fleet. Against us stands at least eight full legions and their supporting Auxilia, Mechanicum forces and Titan Legions, I’d say we have our work cut out for us boys, so you get back to your drills and sharpen your knives. We effect warp-translation when we reach the Mandeville-point in sixteen hours and from there on you are all on full combat-alert. Dismissed!’

Dear B&C.

 

Let me share my works with you all, I think it can be entertaining.

Normally I keep to my blogs on the Ammobunker and DakkaDakka forums but I felt a small expansion was called for.

Here follows my ongoing efforts (in concert with a few other hobbyists) to collect and paint a full army of the XIXth Legiones Astartes and hopefully be somewhat victorious in our ongoing Heresy Era campaign set in the Coronis Thule, what will be known as the Gothic Sector in a distant future.

 

 

 

Coronis Thule

 

733443_md-30k%2C%20Battlefleet%2C%20Goth

 

 

 

We'll start out where the book leaves off: The worlds of the Cyclops cluster, the Grail Abyss, the Manarchean Commonwealth and the Armada Imperialis sector anchorage of Port Maw have fallen to the forces of the warmaster, only the Coronid Reach remains contested.
On Bitter Hold, Darende and Dispater Imperial forces still hold against the Warmaster's onslaught and on Hell Rock the Sons of Horus clash with Iron Hands of the Morragul Clan. Across the Cerada Primus, Secundus, Quavausari and Olverach systems the Tericos of the Agathene Solar Auxila and loyalist Knightly houses are engaging the Taghmata forces of the Cyclothrathi Mechanicum for control and on the Hive World Numinal they have secured victory over the mecanicum invaders, inflicting a sizable loss for the turncoat Forge World.

In the closing months of 008.M31 only one domain outside the Coronid Reach resists the Warmaster: Mezoa. Located to the coreward south-west of the Reach between the heavily populated Cyclops Cluster and the Grail Abyss, the Forge World is under blockade and constant assault by the Death Guard and the Taghmata of nearby M'pandex yet it holds firm, burning the landingzones of the rebels and thus eliminating vital beacheads for their ground assault.

But across the sector, survivors from the killing grounds of Isstvan are slowly tickling in. Not only the Shattered Legions but also bands of survivors from Isstvan III, wearing the black or in some cases; the old.
Warriors in the Stormcloud and crimson of the Dusk Raiders, the Cobalt and calcium white bearing the red dog of the War Hounds. The mist-grey and obsidian of the Luna Wolves.


From the outer dark of the Halo-zone stalks the ebon ships of the XIXth Legion, returning to the Imperium after 8 decades in the void to hunt the traitor legions: yet across the worlds, unseen and unknown; The Legion awaits...

 

 

The Coronid Reach

 

741071_md-Coronid%20Reach1.jpg

 

 

We begin with a first stage of finishing 250pts, a squad more or less, and then run a campaign round using the Suicide Squad rules to represent the first scirmishes between the recon elements of the various forces, it all begins on the contested world of Bitter Hold in the outer marches of the Coronid Reach as the Pale Nomads chapter of the XIXth Legion returns to an imperium devouring itself in the flames of civil war.

Thank you, I have been wanting to do this army for quite some time and I am having a blast with it, it will, as you soon will see.. be very volkite-heavy.
The basic design philosophy is 'early crusade era', so the rank and file runs with exclusively Mk II warplate and volkite chargers, specialists, as support elements have access to the Mk III where appropriate.

 

I'll be going for a quite weathered look on a quite subtle black, not the shiny onyx but a more 'moonlight' theme for the base colours, also, there will be next to no white, perhaps the odd raven but I will endeavour to not go heavy on those, cementing as it is, the Terran veterans identity as the 19th Legion, not the Raven Guard.
Also, the 19th, before the discovery of their primarch recruited exclusively from the Xeric Techno-nomads of the south-eastern Asiatic dustplains (modern-day australia / kiwi-land) and as such took that culture with them and where quite.. different from the Lyrchaen rebel slaves that Corax led, a big reason why the Primarch sent the majority of the terrans away into the halozone as nomad-predation fleets or seconded detathment to dozens of rogue trader fleet to get rid of them.

Now, I have a centurion, a librarian, 5 veterans and a contemptor all based up with the airbrush and ready for the brushes. I can't really go more detailed with the airbrush I currently use because the spray-pattern is too wide, it's a 0.35 needle so it does not lend itself well to detail work.
The models are primed with a mix of 80:20 Vallejo Black / Vallejo model air Panzer dark grey, are blocked out with 50:50 of the same mix, given a highlight of 25:75 black/grey and finally a zenith highlight of pure Panzer grey.
After this they will have two extreme highligts of panzer grey miced with progressively more white.

Then I will ruin the neat black I have made with scrapes, dents, mud and dust...
Anyway, it's easier to see on the contemptor (though not much) because of the bigger areas than on the infantry, the lack of other colours means it's hard to make out the gradients on the small parts, it just looks, well, black..

I guess you could say I have been a bit too successful with my efforts... anyway, it will pop once the metallics and details are in place.

Pics for you!

"-Sergeant Marn. .. Sergeant MARN! Answer your damn comms or I'll run over there and bash your skull in with the data-scroll myself! Artillerystrikes or not!

-Sir?

-About time Sergeant, are you and your men in place yet? Orbital tracks are getting a bit skippy,  I am figuring those Cthonian grox-fondlers must have a signals interference-cart here around somewhere..

also, where is 6th talon? Is sergeant Rashkan 'acting on initiative' again?

-We're one block from marker 5-Kappa-08 sir, had to cut our way through a Reaver Squad, and I have no idea where 6th talon has gone, I still have 2d talon and 14th support with me, zero fatalities so far, in position in 30 seco... Emperor's Blood!

 

-Well sergeant Marn, *chuckle*  from that ludicrously large explosion and the sudden halt of shelling I think we can safely deduce the position of 6th talon. ALLRIGHT YOU GUNSHY PRINCESSES! 5TH COMPANY, ADVANCE!"

Sgt. Vilund Rashkan, Terra-born of Xeric gene-stock, well known in the 5th for being a highly independent but fiercly competent squadleader specialising in infiltration, demolitions and close-assults.

To this end he is one among the many senior warriors who have secured for himself the use of a stormblade from the legions limited stock, fiendishly hard to wield the stormblades usuallt take the form of a glaive or pole-axe with a broad span of monomolecular teeth, a first-grade matter-disruptionfield and an overcharged galvanic traction drive making it a fell weapon capable of slaying a legionaire as easily as said legionaire can cut down a grot with his chainsword. A fact that Sgt. Rashkan put to murderous use during the engagements with hostile legion forces during the assault on Bitter Hold.

After a much needed pause and recharging the inspirational batteries I am at it again.

 

Now, we will start lightly and convert a couple of sniper rifles for the squad of veterans.

 

Inspiration has been shamelessly stolen from the majestic photoshop-fu of Iron Hands Fanatic here on B&C and his Atrox-pattern boltrifle design.

 

 

What follows is a series of photos on how to design the boltrifle, should you so desire. :)

 

 

Enjoy.

The Phobos-Atrox was a bit tricky since you had to cut down details so darn carefully on the phobos bolter, but once you get the hang of it it just takes.. time.

The Vertex was a lot easier to pull off, I am thinking about getting a small squad armed with those (because hot damn they look cool), however I am uncertain how since I don't think any regular unit has the option for combi-bolters. dry.png

You should give it a twirl. thumbsup.gif

As a small intermission I could mention that the workbench currently holds a re-built strike-captain, a squad of near-finished veterans (with choom), a Master of Signals (with boom) and a Moritat (so. much. choom!) Pics in a day or so, almost done..

 

Also a small box from Nottingham arrived and now there are Vorax, Choom-veterans, Choom- tactical support, and Choom-heavy support squads haning out in the soak-tub.

 

Only 6 models in the army so far has no choom.. it will be a veritable volkite-bonanza. (the unfortunate 6 are the captain (paragon balde/power claw) the master of signals (no need for ranged besides the boltpistol) the Praevian (combibolter for better range) and his Vorax (have no volkite options cry.gif )

 

Soo.. there will be some building going on, painting will probably be on hold until I am finished modelling. smile.png

Why the hell wasn't I following this thread before? Followed!

 

Those snipers are absolutely awesome! Especially the converted rifles! No chance you could make some of them for me, I wonder? :P I kid of course. Can't wait to see paint, though!

For the light of Sol, and the earth of Terra, we stand. For the oaths we made, we stand. For the blood in our veins, we stand.
For the stones laid by our ancestors, we stand. For the days that have passed and the days that shall come, we stand.
For the living and the honour of the dead, we stand.
