Fraters,

 

After a long, long, long time putting these guys together, my passion project is finally shaping up. 

 

I present to you, my IX Legion. 

 

Below are pics that are representative of the different building blocks of my force, so you may not see full squads in some cases, but I wanted to get the major pieces, themes, and components done first and then fill things in from there. 

 

Those who know me also will attest that I've always beat my own path through the woods at times, so while the "textbook" was certainly consulted, it is certainly not adhered to in all ways.

 

Comments and critiques welcome.

 

Enjoy!

 

-Indy

Chapter Symbol:

As noted under "Seekers," I have a theme for the coloration of the IX Legion Chapter Symbol. It is thus (so far) : 

  • Line Troops: black-wing + red gem blood drop
  • Veteran status: red-wing + Red gem blood drop, on a black background with gold border
  • Command (Sgt up to Praetor) : gold-wing + red blood drop
  • Seekers: bone-wing + red blood drop
  • Angel's Tears: black-wing + black blood drop; blue gem tear on silver mask
  • Dawnbringers: red-wing + gold blood drop
  • Apothecarion: red-wing + red blood drop on white background with black border

 

The Dawnbringer Champion for example has gold-wing + red drop on one shoulder and the red-wing+gold drop on the other, representing that he is a commander of the Dawnbriger Cohort. It also happens to perfectly tie in with the Dawn/Dusk theme of the DBC as well smile.png

 

Hope you enjoy this as much as I do and I will update as I complete more. 

 

In our next episode: HQ's.

Good to see the fruit of your labours! I have to say I really like them ALL yes.gif

Particularly the Sternguard Veteran Tactical Squad and Dawnbringers, but others too

 

Those big red shields need some decals or freehand imo.

 

@Blade of Perdition - it's yellow, cause of the Blade of Perdition (IF warship)?

 

Good luck with this project thumbsup.gif

Good stuff, nice to see another IX army - a good take on some classic BA units. Agree the shields need something, even just a chapter decal.

Thanks. The Vets were a surprisingly fun bunch to do.

 

As for the gold blade....think Black Library and not directly a BA-focused book...

I have the FW decal sheet, but it’s at a friend’s house at the moment and out of quarantine reach. I agree it would make them pretty cool.
