Within the dark days of the Horus Heresy, not everyone fought in the fires of a battlefield. Malcador the Sigilite, second only to the Emperor Himself, waged his own battles within the shadows and darkness surrounding the nascent Imperium. Agents and assassins, outcasts and renegades, all played a part within his schemes. To him, each were a piece of a puzzle, whether they knew it or not. His goal? To secure humanity's’ survival, no matter the cost. While the Emperor worked to preserve the Imperium and stop the Warmaster, the Sigilite was the contingency, thinking of the impossible and trying to preserve what could be lost if the Warmaster won.
Did he succeed? In a sense, he did.To this day, humanity still lives on the edge of a knife, it’s enemies ready to pounce. Yet it still lives, his marks unseen by the common eye yet still felt. Did his schemes end with his death? For some, the Silent War died with him, never to be spoken of again. The Truth? It never stopped. In fact, his schemes have only multiplied, replicated and multiplied by his successors. Malcador himself was only a larger piece on the board of the galaxy.
Here lies the tales of his successors and is rivals.
Here lies the Silent Wars.
Well, it took me longer than I thought it was gonna take but here I am. I've been meaning to get a WIP log up but due to real life I've been a bit occupied and have really had the time to get much hobby time. With the ETL VI popping up though I've decided to try and get some models pumped out for that. Right now I'm focusing on some Primaris marines in the colours of the Alpha Legion though once I get them done I'll post up a bit of fluff for the unit. So far I've got a 5 man squad of Hellblasters in the works along with a Captain I've converted from the Dark Angels Lieutenant model that you can see below:
As you might be able to tell from the back photo, I do also have a Leviathan which I bought a while back. Honestly I just really like the look of it, simple as. Here's a better picture of it right here:
I'll most likely leave it until nearer the end of the ETL, I don't know if it's viable since I already started putting on the blue before the event started but we'll just wait and see.
Lastly, before I wrap up this post, I do have two Deathwatch members who I've been painting up for a campaign one of my friends is running inspired by the Deathwatch campaigns done by Miniwargaming. Hopefully the campaign will start up soon but I've still got some time to finish the models up:
First one is your normal avergae kill team member, a Red Hunter. I've always had a small interest in these guys so I might end up doing more of them later down the road. Second is a Red Scorpion apothecary taken from the Mark iV forgeworld set. I've really liked the model and to get him tied into the Deathwatch a bit more I replaced part of his right arm with the wrist-mounted comns panel thing the Deathwatch tend to have. Both are still WIP but it's mostly just tweeks here and there to sort them out along with the bases.
In any case, I hope you've enjoyed seeing the start of my road down ETL. Any C&C is welcome, after all I can't improve my skills if I don't get any feedback. Thanks for reading
