The following transmission originates from a rebel human colony - intercepted by Solar Auxillia scouts of the 777th Rad Dogs attached to the 456th Expedition Fleet, working under the IVXth Legion
894.M30 - Resistance Outpost to Resistance Headquarters
The line opens with some brief static and the high pitched sound of a vox frequency adjusting. It is eventually broken and tuned into a male voice - deep and gruff, but a sense of culture, like he is learned in both scholarly and soldiery pursuits. The pic-feed adjusts and shows his face - he seems to be about 40, rugged and wreathed by war and his uniform denotes mid-level seniority, a line or platoon officer perhaps. He speaks:
"The mists are coming in... The men don't feel safe. Unease grips at thier throats like a would be assassin, threatening to end what miserable lives they have defending this hell hole. We were told to shore up this place and for what? Not even a whisper of an enemy. Day after day and night after night we wait but they never come. Johnson thought he saw something at dusk the other night, a grey shadow with obsidian eyes peering at us in the distance.
We all laughed at the poor bastard. Although now, with no sign of the enemy there are... Whispers....
"What if they're seizing us up?" "What if they're waiting for our supplies to run out?" "What if they aren't man, but ghost intent on eating our souls!"
Yes... That last one was Johnson. Wild imagination running again. I keep them in line. Run drills and patrols to keep them on thier feet. When the enemy come, if they do come....
We'll. Be. Read-
The distinctive sound of bolter fire suddenly intensifies, as the door to the room is kicked open and the mist floods in through the open hatch. The man turns around in an instant and fear washes over him.
"Oh lord... Johnson was rig-"
A single bolt round pierces the mist and his head in turn, his bloodied body slumping to the floor. The last image of captured before the feed ends is as follows:
Well - Hopefully you enjoyed that little bit of fluff and photoshop I've made it pretty obvious in the AoD forums I'm going to be starting DG so I thought I'd make a thread to pretty much cover all aspects of that: Fluff, Lists, Modelling & Painting etc. This will be a suuuuuuuper long term project so updates will come and go when I can (and when I'm not doing my BA for 40k!). I have a bit of a fluff idea for these guys but I'm going to be building mainly on rule of cool.
Oh and chemical warfare. Lots of that. The only good Xenos is a Xenos with a chemical fire where his eyes used to be.
But no one cares about that really do they? You want models! The resin hasn't even been washed properly on these, but this (bar a couple of MK3 suits) is all I have so far for the Reaper's Legion.
Section Leader Crysos Mortug:
Complete with Combi-flamer and crazy 2nd edition Chaos power sword.
OH EMPEROR. First time I put one of these together today. B-e-a-utiful. Probably the reason I'm going DG.
Old girls are these, will be repurposing them soon for my tacticals.
A Relic of the Past:
Because I have a lot of terminators... I need Land Raiders... Right? I'll be covering that wretched blue off soon
Big Morty Himself:
No introduction necessary - but he needs some work done as he came cheap but a little battered. But that's just standard fare for the reaper of Barbarus.
How dandy - this post starts off the second page putting a clear line in the previous nonsense I'll probably try and mock-up some potential colourschemes tomorrow. What would people's reaction be... To god forbid... Silver?!
