First post for me, but;

 

I have loved the Imperial Fists since I first got into 40k, to be fair I never really actually bought any models but I loved the fluff. Of course Primaris Marines... well damn take my money. One of the chapters I always loved and even more after 30k became a thing was the Imperial Fists closely followed by the Crimson fists. But my absolute favorite was the Astral Knights.

The Astral Knights did the impossible, but unlike another chapter who I shall not name, they did it but actually paid for it massively. Always thought if I was to collect a SM army they would be the ones. However I would have to collect them based around the World Engine. but now that Big G is running around handing out SM's left and right have a perfect excuse to bring them back

Ever since I started paying attention to this game at the end of 2nd edition, when I first saw the ad for the Imperial Fist attack Force, and the battle report between the IF and eldar in WD, I've been fascinated by the guys who dressed in yellow on the battlefield.

I started collecting IG, but bought 2 boxes of the 3rd edition boxed set, and then started collecting marines.

I couldn't paint yellow back then, because the internet wasn't what it is now, and neither were the paints, and I wasn't into mixing and shading and making my own inks. So I started my own chapter called the Iron Fists and painted them Boltgun Metal and Dwarf Bronze.

Turns out the Bronze looked like poop, and because of my divorce I ended up getting out of the hobby for 8 years. When I came back, I really wanted IF, so I began to strip the marines I had, and that went slowly so I decided just to buy new marines.

I now have three tactical squads painted and am working on my fourth. I am very happy with my progress and the fact that I can almost field a full company, which I will do during our next apocalypse game.

Here is what my SM used to look like, as my Iron Fists (totally before GW put that name in a codex!):

I thought the Iron Fist were a Canon Iron Hands successor?

They are now. I had never heard of them when I first created mine. Back in 1999.
