I'm completely new to any form of miniature gaming, modelling etc. but I've taken a shine to the aesthetics and lore of the Black Templars, and started to build a crusade. I also like that there are no squad markings so there is more flexibility when deciding on a squad's loadout with regard to special and heavy weapons.
Already painted include:
1 x EC (the stock standard Finecast one)
Another EC based on a Forgeworld Imperial Fist commander (this was a very expensive way of doing things)
1 x Marshall (shield and sword)
1 x Marshall (shield and thunder hammer)
5 x Honour Guard and Banner
27 'shooty' Initiates with various special and heavy weapons (2x Melta gun, 1 plasma gun, 2 x power fist, 1 x missile launcher)
3 Sword Brethren (2 combi melta and lightening claw, 1 combi plasma and power sword)
10 stabby initiates
5 Sword Brethren TDA, Thunder hammer and SS
1 Las Razorback (bought it to experiment with air brush so that I could move on to LRC with confidence)
3 Dev Centurians, Grav cannon and missiles
5 drop pods
1 Storm Raven
1 land speeder
Current WIPs include:
5 vanguard vets
I'll photograph and post the painted stuff over the next few days, and although I've already stolen a lot of ideas from this forum I've got a plenty of questions:
1. Is it legit to create an Ironclad out of the Forgeworld Venerable Dread model just because he looks cool provided that the weapons are correct?
2. Can I model my stabby Initiates on 34mm bases and still use some of my old Sword Brethren on 25mm bases to lead the squad?
3. Can I make dreadnought drop pods by leaving out the centre console, instead of buying the ugly (and horrifically over priced) Forgeworld ones?
Pictures to follow.
