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
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.
