“Last of a ragged house long bereft of lordship.....”

“Brothers, fellow warriors,

We have sat in the shadows and have watched our legion descend into madness. We have endured the uncontrolled rage of our so called father. We have been shunned for our enduring loyalty to the emperor, banished to the corners of the galaxy to seek and destroy terrors that stalk the night.

But our loyalty runs deeper, we lay down our lives for a vision vast in its ambition and millennia in its creation. A vision that is threatened by the actions of one who we once recognised as warmaster.

It is clear to us now, that Horus has rebelled against the imperium. His reasoning is unclear but our gene father stands by his side, the loyal remnants of our legion lie slaughtered on the sands of Istvaan III.

But we will not succumb to this heresy, and we will bring honour back to the name of our legion! We are shunned because we are feared and rightly so, for our fury comes from a deeper well, natural, innate, not manufactured by a fools design.

We will endure and we will exact vengeance for those loyal to the XIIth, those murdered on Istvaan.

For the emperor!”

Endryd Haar. Extracts taken from a speech to loyal members of the XIIth legion under his command. M32.

———————————————

Greetings fellow warriors!

Welcome to my new WIP log, I was intending to finish my iron hands and alpha legion projects before embarking on this, but my desire to start a new project has overcome my ability to focus. I’ve always found following what you enjoy in the hobby, rather than forcing yourself to do something you “should” do is more productive in the end!

Ever since we saw the first images of betrayal and the models that accompanied the release, I have always wanted to start a world eaters force. The Typhon in glorious blue and white was such an awesome sight to behold! Even before that, I remember reading various index astartes articles about the traitor legions before their fall to chaos.

Alas, I was distracted by bringing my 40k iron hands into the 30k universe and more recently by the beautiful metallic alpha legion airbrushed paint schemes. But now I return to what first drew me into the heresy, the XIIth legion.

I’m a loyalist at heart (I know, I know), and reading about Endryd Haars background really got me inspired to produce a loyalist world eater force. He has so much character and the mystery of his background is intriguing. He is also a force to be reckoned with on the tabletop.....

So this is the start of my loyalist world eater blog, with a twist. I will be using the blackshield rules to represent the force on the table. The Chymeriae rules (option 3: Fleet, fear and rage) really represent them well, still ferocious but subtlety different to their world eater kin and distrusted by everyone around them (no allies). I also couldn’t resist the modelling opportunity of having marines wielding chain axes and shotguns!

I aim to slowly build a 2000 point list, which you can peruse here:

http://www.bolterand...r/#entry5472970

The force will be modelled and painted in the time just after Nuceria and the legions reorganisation after the discovery of Angron. So they will be painted in the blue and white of the XIIth legion.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I am!

Cadmus.

Looking forward to your take on these guys, I've always liked the idea of loyalist XIIth, using the Blackshield rules is an interesting twist.

Vexilla “Mortis”

gallery_87021_11487_840596.jpeg

Attributed to the company early in the great crusade, the vexilla has taken many forms along its path of evolution to what we can see today. Originally presented to the company by Constantin Valdor after a particularly bloody campaign fought alongside the legion. It is rumoured that Valdor felt no other word could describe the character of the company other than”Mortis”.

The outline of a generic legion vexilla can be seen as the basis for what is now more of a company standard, rather than a squad vexilla. Various additions to the vexilla have been made over time, recording the various battle honours of Endryd Haar and the “fangs of the emperor”. The parchment detailing the deeds of notable, now deceased, warriors under his command.

No record of the vexilla falling in battle has ever been recorded.....

File type: Pict Capture
File Location: Monitoring station Beta-four.six.three security imaging.
Commentary: this pict capture, taken from the image banks of an orbital monitoring station far into the outer reaches, depicts a member of the XIIth legion.

Squad digital identifiers mark this warrior as part of the 19th assault company, under direct command of Endryd Haar. The non standard equipment of the legionary is typical of Haars company, given their predilection for close assault and zone mortalis actions.

The original location of the data repository tells us just how far the 19th company ranged in pursuit of [REDACTED]......

Kasatar Ser-Jena - recruited into the XIIth legions ranks as part of the first Luna induction. Kasatar spent most of his early life in Nomadic claves of Northern Albia, perhaps the oldest surviving member, bar Endryd Haar himself, Kasatar met the riven hound early in his induction process and since that time he has never left his commanders side in battle.

For this, Kasatar was given the honour of vexilla bearer for veteran squad Balearicus. Pict capture taken from hostile battlefield surveillance monitors depict Kasatar just after the muster at Bodt, the fangs were issued newly acquired MKiv plate.

Kasatar can be seen with an augmentic left arm. It is rumoured that his arm was lost during the Cerberus Insurrection, early in the Young warriors career. After several failed implantation processes the warrior decided the loss of his arm would serve as a reminder of the fate of those who choose the path of rebellion. Inscribed into the ceramite of the augmetic, the ancient text reference Mt5.29-30 can be seen under the wrist, the meaning of which is now lost, following the warriors death, shortly after the start of the heresy.

The muster was actually held on Bodt, but but otherwise, looking good :)

Incidentally I've never seen a WE character who was specified to be from Bodt, so that might be something for you to add.

These two are really well posed, as per your usual, chain axes and shotguns are such a savage combo and suit the XIIth down to the ground. Having said that, Kasatar retains some nobility in bearing.

File type: Pict capture
File location: Remembrancer Illias Mercer, personal pict capture device.
Commentary: the majority of the images we have access to regarding the 19th company and their campaign into the outer reaches originate from Illias Mercer, a remembrancer attached to the cohort.

It is postulated that Illias perished during the engagement pictured above, as all other Picts, apart from this image, show some form of post editing or are accompanied by Illias’ personal commentary. Ship records do not however, contain official record the remembrancers death. Given his perceived lack of importance, an unfortunate commonality of view held by most legions with respect to the remembrancer project, this fact is perhaps unsurprising.

The image depicts the XIIth legion engaging an unknown foe, presumably of human origin, but the enemy warriors bulk and stature suggests heavy genetic augmentation. The warriors panoply of war is unfamiliar to me, his equipment perhaps echoing an imperial aesthetic. Interestingly, the lightning bolt design appears on his baroque armour in several locations, similar to that seen in legion astartes pre-unity wargear. However, the lightning bolt symbol is common amongst many enemy organisations. Therefore, we should not draw any definite conclusions about the warriors identity based on presumption.

File type: pict capture
File location: Illias Mercer, personal log.
File commentary:
I have finally managed to capture a picture of veteran sergeant Balearicus, sporting his full panoply of war. A fascinating character, using dark humour as a mask for his past. I think he has told of at least five events which led to the loss of his right eye, I suspect non of which are true, despite having inherent entertainment value for the listener.

Whilst an experienced warrior, he is perhaps not most senior amongst his peers. It would seem the esteemed Lord Haar chooses his squad leaders based on ability rather than time served in the legion. Balearicus exudes an unnatural level of calm, quite an anathema within the ranks of the XIIth. There is a certain delight in his demeanour, observing the sport his brothers have in the heat of combat, rather than being overwhelmed by personal need to participate. Exacting his own, cold efficient violence when joining the fray.

Perhaps this is why he has been chosen to lead Lord Haars personal squad.

Some reason this guy makes me think of the saying “I’m here to kick BLEEP and chew bubble gum. And I’m all out of bubble gum.”  Definitely has the BAMF aura around him. Job well done.

“Bodt, a planet that inspires wonder, at the scale of operation, and simultaneously, revulsion. Whilst resupply of munitions, armour and personnel is an appreciated necessity, I cannot but balk at the hideously efficient processes that enable the mechanism.

Most training facilities I have known, build a sustainable symbiotic relationship with their planet. There are rumours here that the entire human populace was inducted into servitude, there will be no more recruits from Bodt after this time.

The warriors they have produced here have too much akin to my wayward “father”, the world reeks of his influence. I have however, managed to save a few from the nails, the only few that will join me on the campaign. These inductees are foolhardy, headstrong and yet untested in battle. They must be broken, like the stallions of ancient Terra. They must earn their place by my side on the front line of my company.....”
