I started a 30K Blackshield Blog over on DakkaDakka, but soon realised HH interest is REALLY centered around here. So without further adieu, here's my Blackshield force so far. Unfortunately I haven't fully painted any of them, but I sure as hell plan to.

So far I've only played ZM games with them, so I don't have any vehicles yet. Still figuring out a name for this Blackshield Warband, I want to make it a bit poetic in a philosophical way. If you have any ideas, shoot them my way. My next post will detail the fluff I have for these guys.

Still testing all of the WbW. Primarily using Chymerie Berzerker right now for that rage and fleet - which has proven BLOODY good in ZM games. Fast agro is my playstyle (my main army is orks biggrin.png). I'll test out +1 S/T and outlander too.

These look great!

 

Odikinya is by far my favorite. That helmet works well with a terminator body!

Finally finished building my 2nd Cortus Contemptor, guess which legion he use to be from biggrin.png ?

He looks so damn mean wub.gif

959837_md-.jpg

His primarch is the only primarch to have regular mortals dying on his base, so I had to put this sad sod here.

 

I'm going to call him 'Pegleg'. I always wanted to give one of my blackshields a peg leg, and I finally did. Used a Ogre Kingdom club, so its nice and thick to fit the contemptor size. I built the main dude with a BaC Contemptor base. The legs are 'Posabe Mechanoid Leg Kit' from Ebay. The decorations are from Empire Flagellants, Kroot, Vampire Counts, Ogre Kingdoms, and Empire Knight. After seeing how good this guy's pose is. I have to buy another 2 set of these legs, and rework my old contemptor, compared to this one, he just looks so static and boring. 

 

Apologies for just posting these WIP pictures. I really want to paint them, but life right. I promise I'll paint some stuff and post it. 

Also tomorrow is my monthly ZM game, fingers crossed my boys do work. I have lost 3/3 of the 30k games I've played so far, daddy needs a win.

Man, I was hoping he'd have been an Eater of Worlds after seeing that buzz saw but he sounds like a son of the Night Haunter.

 

Regardless he looks pretty cool and I love that out of everyone he has the peg leg.
