The Ardent Crusade.
 
A Black Templars player, lost in the warp since the Eye of Terror Campaign, has finally re-awoken with a desire to pick up the old crusade and expand it in these testing times. With the ETL over I've got a few models completed with a fair bit more on the to do list. Here are some pictures of my crusade so far...

These look really good, the banner is a nice conversion and the golds and white are well painted.

Outstanding work brother and welcome back to the Eternal Crusade!

 

I like how you started out with a bang, great banner bearer and he certainly sets the tone for the rest of the crusade.

 

Play on!

Impressive miniatures. I'm enjoying the consistency and neatness of your colour scheme. The heat effect (I suppose that's that!) on the Contemptor's assault cannon barrels is an interesting touch. Great execution.

Thanks, I got the inspiration from another post a while back. I think it turned out ok. If anyone's interested in what I used for the whites and golds, I used Balthasar Gold and then washed with Nuln Oil, Gehennas Gold for raised areas and the Auric Armour on top. For the white it was Celestra Grey x 2 and then White Scar x 3. All paints watered down to around 50/50 bar the Nuln Oil and the Auric Armour. The Auric I found was watery enough already.

 

Looking great.

Thanks, I think they're from the command squad set for the champion. I thought they'd make the HG stand out a bit better.

Yeah I wanted to do something a bit different instead of leaving it silver. I followed a youtube video online that was basically a wet blend of Drakenhof Nightshade, Druchii Violet and Seraphim Sepia applied in that order.

Excellent work, overall.

Company Ancient

Why is he bearing what is obviously a Dark Angels standard?
Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)

Warhammer 40,000+ Star Wars- Rian Johnson- Reylo= AWESOME! (Knights of Renaissance)

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' 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.

So your Templars killed an enemy psyker, decorated his corpse to look like the Dark Angels Chapter symbol, mounted the decorated corpse atop a Company or Chapter Ancient to raise your troops' morale and demoralize your enemies.

That's HARD CORE. Dorn and the Emperor approve.

Just adding a few bits that I've done recently. I picked up a cheap portable light box from amazon just to check out how it worked. Here's my Ironclad:
