Greetings brothers!

 

It's been years since I have painted a grey knight (since the metal guys back in 4th edition). This is the start of a brand new army for me and it consists of only terminators. I know the state of play in 8th at the moment isn't kind to the good old termie, but I build and paint armies with lore / looks in mind over gaming performance.

 

First up is my Terminator Justicar:

I hope you guys like him.

Excellent work.

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)
Sisters of Battle+ Fenrisian Beer- Inhibitions- Sanity= Trouble! (Order of the Blazing Heart Rocket Punch Pimp Magnet She-Wolf)

 

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 for kind words brothers!

 

Fresh from the painting station is my dreadknight. A bit of conversion work here to get his left leg bent and more in a stride pose. I also turned his blade upside down as I felt it gave the model more balance. I am just waiting for his custom base to arrive and he will be complete.

Hope you guys like him!

I see you put a lot of effort into the Dreadknight, and commend you for this.

Update time!

 

I got my hands on 5 metal grey knight termies (for old time sake). They weren't in the best of shape, so 2 days spent in paint stripper and alot of brushing my first one is finished. I have to say, there is something about the metal grey knights I really like.

I also finished another member of the squad, and took inspiration from the following artwork for his pose:

Hope you guys like today's update.

 

Kraigo is next on my list to paint..watch this space.

All your updates have been inspiring. After I finish my brother's Tau conversions (working on the Fusion Blades and Onager Gauntlet), I'll get back to some GKs and post my current GK army.

Keep up the good work!

The battle damage on the helm matching with the wound on his face is too sweet!

Btw, where did you get the hammer-head from?

Thanks mate!

The hammer is from the deathwatch kit. It's perfect because it's designed to be wielded in 2 hands nd it has those small inscriptions just like the grey knights have on their armour.

Very Nice hammer upgrade more brutal looking too. I feel the Stock GK hammer is lacking in a intimidating brutal feeling,  compared to Thunder hammers and Heavy Hammer.

Bjorn - Thank you my man, it means alot.

 

war009 - Exactly my thoughts too. I thought it was a perfect opportunity to 'upgrade' the look of the daemon hammer - glad you like it!

Update time brothers:

 

I finished another metal terminator..this guy was a little more taxing for some reason, but i am happy he is done!

 

pdus3nE.jpg?1

 

tp6Kh48.jpg?1

 

And more bases arrived in the post so my 2 paladins are now complete:

 

cNwNoAO.jpg?1

 

qM8nGTx.jpg?1

 

Here is what I have left to paint to bring me up 2000 points:

 

3 x paladins

2 x metal terminators

1 x Land Raider

1 x Chaplain (Limited Edition Store Terminator One)

1 x Stern

 

I can see the end in sight..but might add a few more options like Interceptors - we shall see as I don't want to move away from my vision of an all terminator army.

 

Thanks for looking!

Dex
