Heresy-era First Legion Log
 
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
Born amongst the vassals of the Terrawatt Clan, brought up amongst the great steel clad and rad-fueled forges of the Ural Mountains, the boy known then as Rion-43 was selected as one of the aspirants for the tribute payments. These payments, hundreds of genetically-strong young adults and children were given to the Emperor for his use, along with cruel weapons of war and conquest for his armies. Going through intensive and bloody training under both Custodian Guard, and the more cohesive Thunder Warriors, those who survived from these tributes became the first of the Space Marines. The Angels of Death. 
 
Reborn as a Legionnaire, Dumah, sorted into the second Host of the ‘Six Hosts of the Angels of Death’ bore his new name with as much purpose as his blackened plate and deadly weapons. Fighting alongside the early Legion, Thunder Warriors, Custodes and even Emperor on occasion in some of the harshest battles of the Unification Wars he proved himself capable time and time again, earning praises from allies and brothers alike, rising to the rank of Lance-Decurion; one of the handful of leaders of the Host.
 
At the peak of the Unification however Dumah fell amongst the barren wastelands of Hy Brasil as a counter-attack force of millions of psi-shackled conscripts and elite Dracos soldiery, the last in a desperate gambit to prevent the Imperial forces from reaching Dalmoth Kyn’s seat of power. As disintegration weaponry lanced out from the Legion’s lines, it was met in kind by vortex cannons, bi-phage projectors and other weapons of atrocity. Nuclear weapons were used in last ditch attempts to slow down the implacable Angels, the blasts costing hundreds of thousands of lives on both sides, and splitting the very continent they were used on. Almost the entire second Host was wiped out in the conflict, a sixth of the total legion forces at that time. Though through the sacrifice, the push was halted and within the week, Hy Brasil fell to the Emperor.
 
Rescued as one of the few who lived yet at the end of the conflict, the imperial forces found Dumah’s body addled with radiation and cancer, broken beyond repair, even for the skilled gene-forgers and bio-technicians. But he yet lived. Interred in one of the first experimental contemptor-pattern dreadnoughts, his mind was brought back screaming from the pain as body and metal became one. With sophisticated life-support modules preventing the last of his living flesh succumbing to the decay that had ravaged him, he was reborn a second time, brought back from death itself. 
 
With the armour still in development and subject to alteration, the contemptor chassis Dumah now resided in would later be known to have more similarities with that of the Contemptor-Cortus suits created during the Ullanor Crusade than the true Contemptors created during the early years of the Great Crusade, once contact had been re-established with the forges of Mars. Later transference of Dumah to a more suitable dreadnought was found to be unfeasible, with the neural shock of such an action quite likely to end the worn mind, and kill one of the oldest surviving members of the Legion.
 
Winning countless battles through the years of the Great Crusade, Dumah proved his worth in both front-line combat and imparting the wisdom accrued through centuries of war. By the time of the Horus Heresy, though it’s outer layers were updated and strengthened, the inner workings, life support, and complex neural strata were worn and frayed. It was obvious to the legion’s techmarines, apothecaries, and the occupant himself that by another century whatever remained of the honourable warrior within would be faded and gone. His mind broken, and body finally wrought through with lesions and cancerous tissue, Dumah would suffer unending, living in unescapable torment in the realms of his own broken sanity. 
 
It could be seen as a mercy then, perhaps, that Dumah fell only a handful of years later. Sent along with the bulk of the Dreadwing to the Thramas Sector to combat the delaying actions of the VIIIth legion, Lance-Decurion Dumah of the Dreadwing would die amongst the rubble and ruin of Tsagualsa. His chassis would later be recovered from the piles of fallen Night Lords, and ceremonially burnt in purifying flame to mark the passing of one of the oldest of the Legion.

Thanks all :) Really glad with how he came out, now to just get the rest of the army looking similar.

Thanks for the compliment! But coming from someone's who managed to create a whole legion, with an awesome looking Primarchs to boot, think you're selling yourself short. Rest assured there'll be another model soon enough (tonight?) , though more of the flyer variety :P

Thanks Vairocanum! Hopefully it comes out alright. The shape of the lightning wings doesn't entirely lend itself to the whole design, but it's going alright so far. Had to rearrange some parts of fabric.

@Vairocanum : Thanks man! Completion is coming close, though I simplified the pattern a bit. Should have a picture of it almost done soon.

 

@Ikka : Cheers, I'd be lying if I said there weren't a fair few mistakes in there though msn-wink.gif

 

 

The Fires of Vengeance burn ever bright

Brother Aelius, assigned to Ignis-designation support squad during IIIrd Rangdan Genocide.

Slain during purge actions of Eliphid system. Rangdan defense actions noted to be more ferocious than usual. 

 

Additional: flame weaponry highly effective against Rangdan xeno-forms. Experimental use of massed volkite weaponry had effective lethality increases of 13% over mars-pattern flamers, 86% over boltgun varients. Recommend increase of Ignis-designation support squads in future purge actions.

 

IMG_20170326_203205_zpswcknouh6.jpg?1490IMG_20170326_203115_zpsii4jsaoy.jpg?1490IMG_20170326_203136_zps8u2uh76w.jpg?1490IMG_20170326_203125_zps4riz74k6.jpg?1490IMG_20170326_203217_01_zpsmqsggsna.jpg?1

 

Pretty happy with him, first DA infantry model now done. Tried out a bit of OSL with the volkite, think it came out alright. Might have to go over the left side of the robe sometime and try and redo the pattern since that didn't come out well, and was then covered up a bit. 

 

Also finally managed to get the bits together, so now the army starts proper! One of the command Squad bikers. I'll be putting mkII legs on the command squad, characters, and sgts, but probably leave mkIV on the rest unless I can pick up some mkII particularly cheap. Enjoy!

I can't say I think the PF is realistic, and in hindsight I probably would've given him a thunder hammer to represent it, but too late now. Let's hope the paintjob distracts people :D

Maybe he took the Raven bit too seriously, and he imagines it as his 'talon' for grabbing heretic shinies.

Othniels: Lol. This is what happens when you don't have a helmet on, you go all...funny. Next he'll be building a nest

 

Vairo: Thanks! Really quite proud of the checkers. Gonna try and get a bit on practically everyone.

 

Bob: Cheers wub.gif 

 

Now for the main event. The wing could have come out better, but I quickly went from liking it to hating it, so it is how it is. Just need to sort out a scenic base now, and it'll be good to go!

Ident: 1st Legion Naval asset

Type: Mk 1-B Primaris-Lightning Strike Fighter

Location: Thao Mountain range. Low altitude. Pict captured at 372km. Da'thao city at estimated 829km.

Designation: Purity's Wings of +Redacted+ Squadron

Armament: High yield explosive ordnance. Anti vehicle laser weaponry.

Danger rating: Gamma.7

...

Notes: Design suggests main role is as a fast harassment/strike fighter alongside more heavily armed and armoured aircraft. Although explosives carried vary, once the main payload has been used, no method of re-armament bar returning to (assumption) their main support structure is possible. Suggest luring out with low-effectiveness vehicles, then interdicting with flak or fighters once missiles have been shot. 

 

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

+Update+

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

 
Armament: Extremely high yield explosive ordnance. 
Danger rating: Alpha.2
 
Notes.Additional: Da'thao city destroyed by two wings (three aircraft each). Missiles appeared to have been replaced with more devastating equipment. Sub-Audite analysis suggested missiles to be either Nuclear or +Redacted+ based.
 
Later inspection of alternate downed aircraft revealed missiles to be containing slivers of antimatter, kept still by magnetic fields. Majority of missile structure is armour protecting the antimatter housing, with the tip also containing a variable single direction shield generator.
 
This level of security would suggest that any hits that breached the missile while it was on the aircraft would detonate it and the rest of the payload.
