Hey everyone,

Finally starting my own thread for my VII Legion, and putting it in the AOD. Big steps.... So without further ado.

I love the metallic schemes so went with a golden yellow and a splash of crimson for my company colors as well. This thread is aimed to keep me honest and hopefully show progress of the buildup to the Border Bash and Loyalty& Treachery.

I absolutely love everything Imperial Fists so I'm rocking a pretty simple bolter and artillery style list with a wee bit of choom and phosphex because why not. The red is a sign of censure for my Fists because they use some less than savory tactics, not crazy skinning pits like the VIII, more like Marines Malovent and leveling things with artillery... Later there will be additions of a seekery flavor and some gunslingers possibly. msn-wink.gif

Army list as of now (will be built out to 2500 pts): 1500 pts

Red Devils chapter/company heraldry. I know it's the GK symbol but it's just so freaking cool!!!

Will post tac squads later.....

Would love to hear any thoughts or questions. There will be a smidge bit of inconsistency in some of the metallic colors. I changed primer from army painter to gw chaos black. The army painter cans were terribly inconsistent.... Also this whole thing will hopefully be a learning experience for painting. I've been trying to incorporate things I've learned from the Forge and other great threads in the Age of Darkness threads.

"Less than savory tactics." Because REAL Space Marines do their job the way they see fit, and couldn't give a censored.gif about being censured for it!

Pretty much... That's why the XXth and Marines like Thiel are some of my favorite characters.

 

My tactical squads are almost identical minus the casing of the bolters and the vexilla;s. I wanted to have the rank and file all look like there gear is standard issue. So they are bulky and look like line troops, like proper fists. The sergeants are the only one's who really break the mold,. Legion Vexilla and Vox officer get chained templar style bolters.

 

Sergeants got revamped black knightly style helms. I saw the Black sarge helms in Book 3 and had to use them for my troops. I know technically the black helms are heavy support sarge's but I liked them too much.

 

Tac Squad 1-(Purple bolters)

Sarge- Currently reworking helmet to make him stand out some more

Tac Squad 2-(blue bolters)

Sarge- same helmet revamp in progress

to this, used the WE helmet because it's another knightly helm/it needed to be used.... The blood was calling!!!!

Also the photos will be better hopefully because my stupid iphone is more adept at pictures than my camera... SMH.

That MK5 armour looks chuffing epic. That mixed with the MK4 helmets rocks for Imperial Fists!

Thanks man!!! I actually always thought Mk.5 was the most appropriate for the VII so I found some on ebay. Made them look a lot rougher. Well I don't really need to explain myself on the Mk.4 do I. tongue.png

Slight update, 4 members of my Legion Support Squad. Soon to have calivers and HEADS!!!

 

Used a slight contrast on my iphone to show how they actually look. Again rocking the heavy support squad sergeants helmet. Had to use painters tape to get somewhat close to a straight like. I've been using nicer brushes and it has made a huge difference when I paint, I get a nicer hue for whatever reason....

Trying to churn out more Wolfpack. My goal is to finish this squad by the weekend. Then my scorpius's followed by quad mortars.

Ps: I have a deadline with the bash. Should help move things along

Love the way youve set up yer color scheme it really stands out while still being exactly what its supposed to be, I also love the level of wear and tear visable on the models ! Been in a warzone for sure!

Thanks Bladewolf. I really like painting the red which makes it easier to chug along. As far as the wear I wash down the leadbelcher silver which I use as the base then layer with casanadora yellow yellow. That really brings out any "imperfections. I used to highlight before I did the yellow layers but I do it after now because it seems to look a little better plus you can see a silver highlight on the yellow/gold.

Update!!!

 

Finished Choom Team 1!!! Thanks for the encouragement Wolf_Pack. The flesh was not weak this eve!!! Volkite's are wicked fun to paint. The coils are my first time doing the glowy vibe. In the picture they don't show well but they are there and yes my choom is purple, like Mace Windu :P Definitely painted these guys a bit different. Had special helmets (phalanx warders) and backpacks. They are a semi-command squad for my siege breaker so they got a little extra love msn-wink.gif
