It seems my original Executioners thread is archived so I have to start a new one, which is ok since I'm pretty much redoing the army and actually finishing it.

 

executioners_evolution_by_kasumidoll-dbw

The left is the original, but Reaper discontinued the blue steel I was using.

The middle is what I ended up working with, which looks more like metallic Crimson Fists than Executioners.

The right is my newest attempt, which I think is much closer to the Imperial Armour book (it is more bluish in person).

 

So my goal with this is to repaint just the armor of what I have already done (6.5 tactical squads, 2 assault squads, 1 devastator squad with extra heavy weapon options, 1 sternguard squad, 2 dreadnoughts, about 20 terminators and a full command squad) plus finish out the last 1.5 tactical squads, a damocles command rhino, and 8 rhino/razorbacks.

Well done. You captured James Earl Jones' likeness well.

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

 

Reasons to use the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think the Librarian Dreadnought needs Furious Charge AND It Will Not Die to beat down a Chaos-worshiping punk and his Defiler, while a Stormraven needs a Vanquisher cannon to beat down this punk's Heldrake.

Thanks! I actually had a 1920x1080 pic of him up on my laptop while I did the mini

Thanks! I think I have improved a -lot- over the last couple years. I have been watching a few streamers on Twitch and some youtube tutorials.

Tactical squad 2 done. I was originally going to just repaint the armor, but a lot of the details like the leather, purity seals, etc were different from squad to squad so I am taking the opportunity to standardize them.

No I already had most of them on 25mm so I left them that way. Honestly I don't see any reason to go 32mm.

Looking good! I really like how the rhino and dreadnoughts came out. Keep it up!

That said, are the green shoulder pads denoting the company?

No I'm using some of the original material for them. Green is tactical, yellow is assault, red is scout/recon, and purple is devastators.

Assault squad 1 done (squad number 7). I have a backstory of the sergeant in that he hears the Emperor talk to him, giving him advice and warning him of danger. It all started when he took that crystal skull as trophy from an eldar warlock he killed...

Sternguard squad (squad 9). All non-heavy weapons are magnetized. Executioners replace one of their devastator squads with sternguard.
