Hello fellow Templars of the Bolter & Chainsword, long time reader - first time poster... getting back into the Warhammer 40k arena after many, many years. Last time I played was 2005 and had the start of a good BT army. Held onto everything through the years and am coming back to the table with new ideas. Here's the first part of the fluff background for my updated army for 2016. Hope you enjoy and all comments welcome.

Army WIP pics. If the background above fell under the TL;DR category then i'll break it down for ya real quick:

 

Updated Sisters of Silence without the weird top-knot haircuts. Taking old marines, some others a friend gave me that were an honest, but failed attempt at painting (he tried, he really, really did), and putting together a Crusade that's comprised 2/3 of special forces female Neophytes, Initiates and Veterans. Basically the Seal Team 6 of Black Templars. Why? Because my wife has awesome ideas and I'm running with it like Usain Bolt being chased by a cheetah with rocket feet. Yeah, like that.

 

IMG_3608_zps8hzg8owh.jpeg

"Why didn't I join the Sororitas? Maybe if I wanted to dress like a Cadian hooker."

 

IMG_3607_zpsmmiwdhat.jpeg

I can't stand the heads for scouts out of the box, those guys look like Duke Nukem afterbirth. These snipers look SO much more the part. Especially the one sporting the doobage.

 

IMG_3606_zpsyxmwuhdi.jpeg

Magnetized mock-up but still a bunch of cleaning to do on this one. Had a bunch of Brettonia bits so they came in handy to keep with the Templar look for helmets and accessories.

 

IMG_3605_zpszqlglymm.jpeg

Still getting back into practice with green stuff, extra cloth isn't hard to do though.

 

IMG_3604_zps6xw7mxjh.jpeg

The goggles on this sculpt is perfect for Vanguard Veterans. Also magnetized. Pretty much any trooper over the rank of initiate is getting magnets.

 

IMG_3602_zpsxnbvqyvu.jpeg

My equivalent of "more cowbell" for a Templar. A bit more predator and a little less claw. This one had some pretty badly gloped on paint so I was able to get most of it off with a really long soak in some 405, still, a lot of the hard edges and fine detail are lost. Good warmup though for first pass at base layers.

 

IMG_3601_zpsy3muzhc1.jpeg

Still getting back into pratice with my painting skills, but this is a good first pass on my color scheme. Still a lot of detailing and weathering. And pardon the dust, where IS that canned air....

 

IMG_3597_zpsogo5suvu.jpeg

Chopped off some chaos bits for backpack thusters, looks quite nice, magnetized Sternguard.

 

IMG_3596_zpsldzvjw13.jpeg

"That Guardsmen didn't just call my scrolls 'pieces of flair', did he? He DID? Hold this for a sec..."

 

IMG_3595_zpsdsvjosin.jpeg

"Make fun of my unicorn helmet again. No seriously, you see this double sided power sword here? Yeah, this one. Means I'm company champ, bub."

 

IMG_3594_zpstlry9g1m.jpeg

Scibor pads, FW shield, Puppets War Steam Knight head, off-road lighting package, dual exhaust, extra pointy bits at the end of the Thunder Hammer, because more pointy bits!!! Reads: Royale with Cheese.

 

IMG_3592_zpstyq08dhu.jpeg

And last but not least the Terminator Captain. I am smitten with double sided powerswords.

Interesting...

 

Though, from a modelling perspective, I would not have used SM bodies, they are too bulky.

 

One could consider IG bodies (which would be suitable to represent volunteers in a PDF) such as

Or some of the non GW stuff

Though, from a modelling perspective, I would not have used SM bodies, they are too bulky.

 

My reasoning is simple enough - female combat troops (prime example: Israeli Defence Forces) are often just as laden with gear and armor as male troops, so any notion of seeing body type and shape through Space Marine armor seems frivilous. Also, I really don't like the Sororitas scuplts from GW, with those pointy faces and bob cut hair, those awful upside down bowl helmets. Just a bit too much like a bunch of hooker goth lolitas went to Burning Man and found Jesus (not that there's anything wrong with that). 

 

Run that same line of thought into the fluff machine and I'd say the insides of that just about any power armor can conform to it's wearer. And, it's armor, I think it should be bulky. A badass from the lower levels of Helsreach Hive who's worked her life on the docks wouldn't wear Sororitas armor with a grav gun to her head, am I wrong? Also I like the idea of an "off the books" experimental Crusade just taking whatever resources they can would mean that all their stuff is pretty standard, maybe outdated, perhaps antiquated, up until it gets to it's unit. Then they just go to town on their customization. Macgyver meets A-Team meets Delta Force meets Tuskegee Airmen meets Grimdark.

 

I'm a big fan of Vasquez from Aliens. Or Bobbie Draper from The Expanse books. Also, I have two nieces that are fascinated by my 40k stuff, so they were very excited I was building a partly female army.

Oh, I absolutely understand that, make no mistake. I was merely stating a personal preference, sorry if that was not clear. Besides, some inquisitors do wear power armour (Coteaz for instance) without space marine enhancements so there's no reason to think women couldn't have suitably adapted models.

Who sculpted the female heads you used?

 

Statuesque Miniatures released some heroic scale female heads last year. I think these sculpts are some of the best ones out there in terms of facial proportions and volume. They have a couple types, I used the regular and veteran sets, there's also a set without hair for the AA sculptors out there. I just tried adding some longer hair to a model last night and it took fooooorrrreeeeeevvvvvveeeeerrrrrr. But worth it.

 

Regular:

Veteran:

Wings were sized down from a WHF Brettonian (I think) pegasus mount... I have three other sets of wings, but not sure if I want to make a whole Vanguard squad with those or just keep it for the squad leader. Perhaps adding some wing bling to my EC or chapter master is a possibility.

Fine addition to my Crusade as well... initially I plan on getting 2 Thunderhawks to get the entire Crusade on the floor, but if 1 Stormbird can carry 100 Marines, including equipment... ;)

Unless I missed some change to it, the stormbird can carry 50 models, not 100. That said you'd be hard pressed to find a grander mode of transportation

 

EDIT: then again, the rules I recall seeing of the Stormbird didn't feature those lovely ball turrets with HB's either, but had lascannons... Am I behind on my info?

Dumb double post, if possible I'd like it deleted.

I don't think and actual rules for the Sokar pattern have surfaced yet. From some fluff sources Stormbirds had a capacity of 60-100 troops. I'm sure there's going to be a variant of that model at some point to maximize profitability, like the Stormraven / Storm Eagle / Fire Raptor models.

There's rules for it for Horus Heresy. While this is no guarantee it's going to be exactly like that in 40k, they typically haven't deviated that much between versions. The available HH rules state 50 model capacity, but also 5 twinlinked lascannons (and no alternative to have anything instead of the lascannons, so obviously they're due to be updated if they haven't been already)
