Howling Griffon 4th Company
Under the shadow of Badab. 922M41
After the disastrous ambush at Khymara, the near destruction of the 4th at the hands of the Executioners and the loss of Dreadnought Confessor Titus, it fell to Captain Uthor and Titus' nominated successor Chaplain Mogain to begin the long task of rebuilding the 4th back into a fighting force, both physically and spiritually.
Most squads within the 4th happily accepted the newly inducted battle brothers, and understood the need for an accelerated implantation and promotion due to the heavy losses sustained. There were however voices of dissent. Sergeant Galahan of first tactical out right refused to have any of the newer battle brothers added to his squad.
"We are the pride of the 4th, the first sons of Mancora and the ideal they should aspire to be. Let the thinner blooded brothers learn from us, but until they prove themselves not one of them shall join my brothers and I"
As part of the Tale of Gamers 2017 I have made the (rather foolish) pledge to build the entire 4th company of the Howling griffons, so this is the log I'm going to use to track the progress. As some of you who have seen my infrequent logs may know that I don't do things simply. So aside from picking probably one of the hardest paint schemes I decided to follow the example of the esteemed BobHunk and his team fisto Imperial fists. Yup that's right. LEDs.
So here's the current list for the fourth company, got a few conversion stuff planned (anyone armed with a power fist and Plasmagun/plasma pistol will have the gun mounted like Alexis Pollux's meltagun/powerfist). I'm also aware that there are a few differences to the standard layout for a company, with a Techmarine and a Librarian added, but I wanted to be able to field all the different options.
Captain Uthor- Artificer Armour, Storm shield Powerfist, Plasmagun
Chaplain Mogain- Powerfist
Librarian Merlain - Force staff,
Techmarine Ulfius - Servoarm, Conversion Beamer, Servitors
Command Squad "The Shield Bearers" Land raider
-Veteran, Company Standard
-3 Veterans, Storm shield, Plasmagun
Tactical squad Galahan- Plasmagun, Lascannon Rhino
Tactical squad Agravail - Grav Cannon, Gravgun, Rhino
Tactical squad Caradot - Multimelta, Meltagun, Rhino
Tactical squad Brastian- MIssile Launcher, Flamer, Drop Pod
Tactical squad Elyan- Heavy Bolter, Drop Pod
Tactical squad Parzivel- Primaris - Repulsor
Assault squad Bediven- 2x flamer, Powerfist, Jump Packs
Assault squad Lancel- 8x Bikes, 2x Meltagun, Attack bike, Multi Melta
Devestator squad Gawair- 4x Plasma cannon, Razorback
Devastator squad Morien- 2x Lascannon, 2x Heavy Bolter, Razorback
Dreadnought Dagonet - Assault Cannon
First company Task force
-Terminator squad Lyonal- assault cannon
-Terminator squad Baudwin- 3x THSS, 2xLC Land raider
And here's where I am on the construction front. This has been a huge learning curve both with the electronics and making silicone mounds so I can resin copy the helmets, but I think I've got to a point that I'm happy with.
And I started one of the warriors of squad Baudwin. Yes I know Cataphractii isn't a legal choice with THSS, but I figured the aesthetics looked so much better than Indominatus so I'll just use it as "counts-as". Besides, who doesn't love that new custodes shield as a Proper Storm Shield?
