  • Faction: Imperial Fists

I have been working on and off on my Imperial Fists for a long time now. So I thought it was about time for a change. My Imperial Fists had a very definite theme to them when I started them, being a mechanised force, all mounted in armour with no decals at all, just molded pads. The same would apply to my new force. 

 

I'm not a big fan of 40k at the moment, whereas 30k for me is very exciting, and it seems to be the main game I play these days. So I thought I'd see what it was like on the other side of the fence and go for a traitor force. Admittedly, not many of the other legions really inspire me like the Imperial Fists, but what does come close are the Sons of Horus. 

 

I am however not too big a fan of the sea green (perhaps it will grow on me), but I am a real big fan of Horus and his Justaerin. So I figure, like people before me, that I'd go for an elite, chosen army of Justaerin. The colour scheme was also a big factor in them being chosen, no yellow.

 

So for my second Heresy force, I would play the ultimate bad guys. I have made a little progress, and made up some veterans, as although this is a 1st company Justaerin force, they also did don power armour on occasions. I am also going to steer clear of armour, as that is what my Imperial Fists are, and go for a different play style, which just happens to be drop pod heavy (or dreadclaw heavy).

 

So here is the start of my force.

I wanted these marines to stand out as veterans, and put as many gubbins on them as possible. I wanted them to reflect being representatives of the best Legion, with that sense of merciless fighters. 

 

I want to finish off this squad and then do a few test pieces to see if I can get a scheme going. 

 

I have in my bits box for this force at present:

15 more veterans

10 Heavy support with lascannons

2 Dreadclaws

Malogurst (conversion)

Horus

 

I am planning on getting some (a few) Justaerin in Terminator armour soonish as well. 

 

I am rather new to this play style, and Legion, so any pointers or comments would be most appreciated, especially in painting black or what powders to apply to these bases and legs.

 

Thanks for looking.

 

Cheers!

Damn, I would have bet money that you were going to be doing Alphas from the hints you dropped...

 

Sweet work on the veterans. Like the look of the sergeant a lot.

More of a gut feeling, the SoH are too cool to resist :P

Can't really help with advice on painting them black though, I haven't even reached that part myself. And I play my Sons like you would play your Fists so I can't give much advice on the play style either...

Well, that;s interesting. My friend plays Alpha Legion so they don't really appeal to me. Thanks for the comment. For the sergeant, I tried to emulate this old pic.

Fair enough. They are very interesting. Guess we will just have to learn of each other when doing the black!

Yeah, there is a lot of things in that box, from old 2nd ed land speeders to sanguinary guard. It just seems to accrue mass.

I have finished assembling the last of the squad, and have even made an attempt at a colour scheme. As already stated, they will be painted black in the Justaerin style, but finding a good black scheme, other than just painting them black, has been quite difficult. 

 

First up though, is the rest of the squad.

With these melta guns, I actually magnetised them, so I can swap them out for other kit, like heavy bolters and the like if I want, with out having to make another model kitted that way.

DSCF3875_zps6jxoqvei.jpg

 

Now I have also had a go at a scheme. Here is the wip.

DSCF3878_zpsz9srit1s.jpg

 

I'm worried it looks a little too grey, however, I need it to be 'lighter' so I can add some battle damage later. I am really happy with the left shoulder pad, as that turned out well. I also like my red. The base I am still wondering about. I was thinking metallic with red dust, but not sure. 

 

Any comments would be appreciated. 

 

Cheers!

Those Vets are packing! I can see what you mean about the black looking to grey and I'll take a guess and saying you drybrushed it. Maybe to kill that dustyness you should either focus on the edges only or wash it with black, I love the red though! The only thing I think he needs is a third colour, either the base or a spot colour like green lenses or something. Either way, looking good man.

Cheers! Glad you like them. I have gone ahead and done his eyes a glowing, menacing red/yellow. For the base though, I am thinking metal washed with something, with some forge world powders (not sure which yet).

 

I have washed the armour twice so far, but I might go for another one and see if that looks better. Will post a pic later on. Thanks for the advice!

Here is the first test model that is pretty much complete. I added an extra black wash to tone it down, and think it looks much better now. Let me know what you think!

Well, that's interesting. My friend plays Alpha Legion so they don't really appeal to me.


Hey! I resent that! :P

Looking good though man! Need to get my Ebon Drake crew assembled to face them! :)

Nice looking colours, rich red with the gritty dusty black. Nice contrast! :tu:

Thanks! I have already started on the next lot too.

Lol! You sure do need to get them done. Though having said that, the best thing about the Alpha Legion, is that no one knows what side they are on. I do have my 1200 pts mapped out, so I am painting and assembling them now. Might be ready for the next game.

Cheers! I really wanted to use some of the Forge World powders I have had sitting round for years. Thanks for the comment.
