First and foremost, a shout-out to Brother Arkley for putting in the hard yards on the Primaris Template, which inspired my our efforts, and rekindled the flame for my DIY Chapter. I did have a crack at them once previously using CHS's Tru-Scale models, but only got one squad before all of their legal troubles, and Tru Scale-marines became unavailable.

 

Here's the Fluff i wrote for them for one of the Brotherhood oh Angels challenges,

I will be editting the above to ammend the 2nd Co. into a Primaris Company, and as such, they will be the focus of this thread.

I don't have the time or money to hit these guys full force, straight away, but have eBay'd the Captain, and two Lieutenants for $45 AU posted. 

 

 

Cheers,

Jono

Great stuff Grotsmasha. The fluff was very enjoyable and I love your choice of colour, purple isn't used that often. I'll be keeping an eye on you.

Commenting only on the fluff because I'm still nonplussed about Primaris.

 

I like the name Heralds of Devastation. The last word is pretty similar to ruin, and yet it implies Imperium more than Chaos to me when Heralds of Ruin pretty much says the latter for me.

 

I like the chapter badge too. These Dark Angels successors certainly don't beat around the bush.

 

I wouldn't call Tenebrye II the only other habitable planet (well, technically, moon) beside Tenebrye III if the fifth moon is a death world; it's still habitable, however barely.

 

I suggest calling the Conquest of Tenebrye the Reconquest.

Cheers lads, and good points on the fluff. I'd definitely needs a revision.

Fun side fact, originally it was the Skrillax system until a certain artist became popular with whom I have no interest in.

The two Lieutenants sat on my desk for a week or more, as I was lacking inspiration for conversions, but once the Ancient arrived, switch was flipped for me and I built these three in about 45mins combined.

Just a thought - you could use the GotC chapter badge decal sheet here on B&C for the left leg. Not sure how much of a job to change the black background on the decal sheet to green (if it is easy, let me know how) but that would probably work as you can then paint round the decal with the green for the leg armor - might be a slightly different shade of green but would at least blend together easier than black! I've used the std badge for my Guardians and it looks pretty good once you paint round the edges of the decal sheet, the smallest size badge would probably fit.

That would probably work, I was just going to cut the wings from my plethora of DA chapter badges and make my own crossed swords.

The pics have revealed a few missed details, and tidying opportunities, but for now, he is done as I need to finish my August Challenge mini.

Nice work, great choice of colours. I have soft spot for purple, even though I usually fail to make it work.

 

Are you taking the pictures with flash or frontal lighting? I have the feeling your shading gets washed out on photo.

Sooooo, it's been a while, yeah?

 

Time to blow the dust from this thread and update you all. This year, over i n the WIP Forum, I'm once again running the 12 Months of Hobby Challenge, but this year I've created a Campaign to go along with the Challenge. The narrative of that Campaign, and it's conclusion, will inform the new history of the Heralds of Devastation post the appearance of the Cicatrix Maledictum. For my part within the Challenge I will be focusing on a Strike Force of Unforgiven Chapters to discover the Fate of the Heralds. This means I'll be painting multiple Chapters throughout the year, including some new Heralds. 

 

First step for the Heralds will be to update their scheme. The problem, you see, I mixed paints willy-nilly for the models above and haven't been able to consistently recreate the colour, so I'll be coming up with a new method that is easily repeatable as a first step. I have some failed 3d Prints that I'll be using to sort that out.

 

Since my Primary Force is the Guardians of the Covenant (due to ETL, and how simple they are to paint whistling.gif ) my first pledge for the 2020 Challenge is for 5x GotC Reivers.

 

gallery_48988_16024_111058.jpg

 

 

As my primary source for models is the Warhammer 40,000 Conquest subscription, I already have quite a backlog of models to choose from. So I got started, and begun assembling that backlog to allow me greater choice month by month in the Campaign.

 

gallery_48988_16024_10285.jpg

 

 

I am unsure yet which Chapters these will end up being, but having recently completed an Angel of Absolution tester (The AoA are the Heralds parent Chapter), I'm pretty tempted to start there.

 

 


 

For November I've chosen to paint an Angel of Absolution, one of the Dark Angel Successor Chapters, I was inspired by the planned narrative I've been working on for the 2020 Challenge. I was on such a roll I got started before posting, and went the whole nine yards and finished him up in just 4.5hrs.

 

 

Primer on, ready to go,

30mins in,
