Hello!

 

Departed for the farthest reaches of our Galactic Cluster, the armies of the Carcharodon Astra split from the XIX legion before the time of the Horus Heresy.   Spread across the Galactic plane and reaching far into the nearby galactic clusters, Carcharodon Astra have become a thing of myth and misunderstanding.

 

Spread into Nomad Predation Fleets, each Company has evolved into an independent fighting force capable of fielding huge numbers of warriors.  Human recruits forced into caged deathmatches and augmented against their will are conscripted into Scout platoons capable of overcoming even highly trained PDF or Xenos soldiers.  Only after proving their loyalty and skill will a Scout be elevated to the position of Battle Brother Marine of the Carcharodons.  Casualties are high for these Scouts as they are used to prepare worlds for the appearance of their Carcharodon brothers.

 

When brothers are fitted with their Power armor, they are originally assigned to Devestator squads and drill endlessly on using heavy weapons.  They are then promoted to Tactical squads and can choose to learn to use Jump Packs and Bikes as their skill increases.  The role between Tactical and Assault brothers blurs with these warriors as each and all wields a panalopy of chainswords, knives, Bolters and close combat weapons.

 

As the brothers achieve greater victories, they might be chosen to join the ranks of the Terminator armored warriors of the chapter.  Each fleet keeps its own supply of Terminators and has its own special lineage of honor.  The Red Wake assigned to Chapter Master Tyberos is just one such Honor Guard.

Great paint jobs! I especially like the shark teeth and tribal stingray on the LRC.

The Nicor is part of a separate fleet.  I prefer to create my own fluff within the guidelines of the existing Codex and supplements.  My Captains are standard Captain models assigned to specific roles and bearing control of specific areas of the battlefield.  Tyberos is a great character, but Predation Fleet Mako is led by Fleet Commander Marcus Pluvius.  His role is limited to BFG and he will not be represented on the tabletop in normal skirmish games.

 

That having been said, I am using the ASC 2.0 rules for BFG and am creating a Space Marine Frontier Fleet list for my Carcharodons.  I do need at least another 12 escorts to round out my current models so this fleet will be legal.  Their primary enemy will be Tyranid for their first series of campaign games.  Hooray for scratch build Tyranid fleets!

 

All my tattoo and markings were done with homemade decals I made.  a gloss coat then decal and another varnish gloss coat worked great to avoid the silvering or edge problems I read about all the time when applying decals.  I do need to work out a better dullcoat though.  My current selection still looks far too shiny for my tastes.

According to official canon, Carcharodon Astra are Raven Guard successors. So if Raptors can be discussed here, then so can they.

I want to read more about the Carcharodons anyway. And I want to hear more about making decals. My Samoan buddy would be impressed with those patterns.

Whoops. I should have been more clear that the vow was for the BT.

LOL Ninja'd

 

I took Mr Bannons message as a friendly point that ETL vows go in the Codex Marine section.  He is right about that, and I while I had already posted there, his comment could have saved me a bit of hassle trying to sort why my vows had not been recorded.

 

about the decals..........

 

I bought decal paper for my laserjet printer and used photoshop to make various sizes of tribal images I found on google searches on the internet.  (As it turns out, there are a bajillion cool looking tribal designs on the internet).  

 

Make sure you get the right kind of paper for your printer.  (Laserjet gives great results).

 

Practice shrinking your images on a regular sheet of paper until you get the sizes you want.  

 

I applied gloss varnish to each model before adding the decals and then after trimming them to fit and lie flat, I would add another layer of gloss varnish to conceal any edges.  I really think this double layer of gloss is vital to avoid the decals looking out of place on the models.

 

Sadly, white decals are still a fantasy.  I would love to get a set of the old Forgeworld Carcharodon decals.  So many little sharks to paint.....

I read the WIP thread that the pads are from Shapeways. How is the quality in your opinion?

I have been very happy with the quality of the shapeways shoulder pads.  They are slightly differently shaped from the shape available from GW, but you have to compare them closely side by side to see any difference and then it is still very minimal.  Mounted on each marine, they look great.  I also found out there is a new guy making shoulder pads for Deathwatch who has a good selection of Carcharodon shoulder pads with more than one type of insignia.

15 of the 25 brothers pledged to ETL are completed today.   The remaining 10 brothers are being painted in a Codex approved camoflauge pattern.

 

 

 

Camoflage has been used by the Carcharodons in the past.  I am trying my hand at the old Rogue Trader era pattern listed for Space Sharks.  I am making good progress, but am still only about half done with them.

Today, I completed the camoflauged brothers of the Vanguard Veteran ranks.  Led by a wild eyed Chaplain, they strike from hiding, bringing bloody death to their foes.

 

 

No tribal markings adorn these camoflauged suits, but their right Shoulder was left in the chapter colors with their shark insignia, to appease their machine spirits.  Only after the missions are over and the suits are repainted for more conventional use will the tribal markings be repainted onto them.

 

A group shot of all 25 VV Brothers and their Chaplain HQ vowed to the ETL.

Two squads of tactical brothers arrive to lend aid against the enemies of the Emperor.  Bearing a panalopy of boltguns, chainswords and bloody trophies taken from mighty foes, these warriors inspire fear in their enemies.  These warriors are drawn from feral w2orlds and their traditions are encouraged by the leadership of the Fleet.

 

 

Able to lay down a withering hail of boltgun fire and hold objectives, these brothers are also able to charge their foes and overwhelm their defensive positions.  Fear overcomes many who are charged by these bloody and silent warriors.

 

 

Blood splatter reflects the skill this vet sgt has developed using two chainswords in melee.  All negotiation teams of Carcharodon Astra are shown this and other effective means of negotiating with the enemies of the Emperor.

 

 

Tribal markings, purity seals and blood mix together to help define what it means to serve as Carcharodon Astra.

 

 

 

Powerful Grav-cannons are issued alongside chainswords to handle a wide range of threats on the battlefield.

Carcharodon Command Squad Banner.  Forged of the maw from a massive beast raised in the depths of the Apex, its centuries long life saw it used to train thousands of brothers and it is still honored as a mighty servant of the Fleet.  Skulls of defeated foes are ritualy fed to the maw as they are taken from the leaders of enemy forces.  The stylized shark of Predation Fleet Mako can be seen on the red banner hanging below.  Trailing donw to the ground, the Litany of Victory reads of the Fleets ever growing awards and victories over the Xenos and Heretic.

 

 

Captain Lelash Muto Leads Ground Forces from his mighty Godhammer pattern Land Raider.   Always nearby, Chapter Executioner Simon Vask wields a mighty Power Axe and Storm Shield.  They are joined by Apothecary Hsuang Theil, one of few Apothecary sent to battle and trusted with the sole duty of preserving the life of the Chapter leadership.  Chaplain-Aspirant Davros Timon wields an assault shield and power sword as he leads a squad of three volunteers who are entrusted with use of the Chapter Plasma Rifles.  Their noble service leads to the path of Squadron Sgt eventually.  The burn marks left from Plasma use helping to build bonds of brotherhood between the squad Sergeants.

Adding Veteran Sternguard and Las Cannon Devastators to the ever expanding fleet.  ETL vow #3 completed and I prepare myself for a final round including Scouts and Camo pattern Devastators that will serve as part of a Skyhammer Annihilation Force.

 

Las-Cannon Devastators provide powerful, long range support for Ground based attack.

 

Additional Terminator suits taken from Mantis Warrior armories during the Tranquility Campaign.  In accordance with Carcharodon tradition, the Crux Terminatus are returned to Terran Authorities, and a single one assigned from Holy Terra is worn by the squad leader.  All other brothers wear Tribal markings or Shark insignia upon both pauldrons.  

 

 

Veteran brothers of Predation Fleet Mako sometimes appear at a glance very different than their brothers.  Born form Geneseed collected thousands of years ago, the original lineage of many brothers is unknown to all but the Emperor.  All brothers submit to regular testing for both physical mutation and pshychic manifestation.  Vigilant is the thought of every brother against Chaos and mutation.

 

I am looking forward to starting my final vow for the ETL.  I will be completing my Scout teams and painting more of the Yellow camo pattern I used in my second ETL vow.    Soon my army will be fully painted and will lead me to work on my Inquisitorial allied troops, and several Xenos armies that can challenge these fierce warriors.

I like the Devastators. I have 4 kneeling Missile Launchers, and I made a kneeling sgt, who, instead of pointing, has a flat open hand, palm down. He is telling his squad to get low, behind cover, and line up their firing lanes.

Your Banner is AWESOME!

RobMac, thank you for saying hello!  I am eager to see your upcoming Carcharodon book.  I always wondered why they did not get more love from GW since they were one of the original chapters listed in Rogue Trader.   I have enjoyed putting this army together and am flattered to see someone directly involved with developing the chapter commenting about my models.  I will certainly be smiling for a while about that.

 

Jacques, I totally feel you about the kneeling devastators.  Mine will be camoflaged and I love the idea of them kneeling or assuming prone positions to fire.  Even the subtle use of the Sergeants hand appeals to me.  Each model contributes to the squad as a whole.  Now for me to shift gears a bit and work out how to paint tattoos on all my converted Scout models.
