Bullgryns

I finally finished painting my converted bullgryns, i loved building them, but painting them was a bit of a chore. These bad boys are going to give my army a much needed counter-punch, i'm thinking of adding another 3 to the collection to have some flexibility in fielding them. 

Thoughts?

You've knocked it out the park again though I'd think of paining that cable that's on the hazard stripes on the axe as the rest of the paint (and conversion) work is good enough that the omission stands out. 

 

I wish my stuff was anywhere near as good as this.

They look great :) I enjoyed painting mine but they are a lot of model to paint :P Adding more will be good (plus you can have a Nork) both table top and hobby wise :D

Excellent work on the Ash Princess and her mount. I'm impressed with the kills she made on enemy tanks- can't be easy with multi-meltas, when battle cannons have three times the range, meaning she must literally tank enemy attacks for quite some time- without the ability to retaliate- before she can get close enough to shoot.

The ways of her tank hunting are mysterious indeed!

Thanks!

I heard word she trained under none other than Creed himself, and the rare survivors of her attacks are seemingly driven insane by their experience claiming that she appears almost from nothing...

I heard word she trained under none other than Creed himself, and the rare survivors of her attacks are seemingly driven insane by their experience claiming that she appears almost from nothing...

Shas'la T'au Sha'ng, granted the cognomen of "Longstrike" for his marksmanship, carefully centered the railgun's crosshairs over what would be his greatest kill in this campaign: The Imperial tank ace Commander Princess Al Ramad Amira, known as the "Ash Princess" for her proficiency with multi-meltas. Sha'ng knew the weapons as crude analogues to the Tau fusion blaster: Deadly at short range, but harmless so long as one remained beyond their reach, as Longstrike was.

"For Shas'la Ma'tu W'aru'do," Sha'ng swore, squeezing the trigger to avenge his fallen comrade.

Bam, clang, clatter, clatter! The railgun exploded, shaking the Hammerhead it was mounted on. The Shadow of Grief- the Ash Princess' command tank, a Leman Russ Punisher with bow and sponson-mounted multi-meltas- drove out the railgun muzzle, the Imperial vehicle's weight forcing its Tau analogue's bow into the ground.

"What?!" Longstrike forced his attention away from the Punisher gatling cannon now aimed at his face, to what the now destroyed railgun's crosshairs were centered on: a thin wisp of smoke eight kilometers away- a distance the Imperial vehicle crossed in a split-second, emerging from its ambush position in Sha'ng's own command tank's railgun. "That's impossible!" a thought shared by countless other enemies of the Imperium.

"Surprise!" At Commander Princess Al Ramad's command, the bow and sponson gunners squeezed their triggers, sending melta beams through the Hammerhead like a titanium trident through a jellyfish's buttery flesh.

The word "How?!" barely left Longstrike's lips, when his command tank transformed into a fireball.

This picture really captures why the Guard is such a cool faction. You could line these guys up next to some Cadians or Kreig and never feel like they weren't part of 40k.

Your opinion is important, and someone posting here probably does care what you think. You should go tell them. Remember that it really hurts to come up with an idea you care about and have no one else care. Go care about something and tell them what you think. Now. Think of what it would have meant to you when you were young.

August von Asche.

 

August von Asche, the proud wearer of a silver skull. Earned for destroying a cohort of slaughter-kind during the purge of hive Halhoth. Though grievously wounded, his chainblade kept killing in the name of the Emperor. Leaving him covered in heretic blood as sole survivor of his platoon. 

 

During his recovery on the ‘Emperors reverance’ August started having disturbing dreams of himself navigating a small boat down a river running red with dark blood and gore. Though shaken, his immense faith in the Emperor of mankind protects him from the effects of these dreams, or so August thinks...

 

Being a member of the von Asche family comes with its own set of problems for the 501st, as they are the rivals of the van Hoff family. Creating an immediate distrust between Albert and Wilhelm (the company commander). Whether shared combat experience will dissolve or deepen their personal problems remains to be seen.
