The topknot and the lightning claw make the golden armored Luther look like Abaddon the Despoiler. I presume this is intentional. Will he have different stats in-game?

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.

Actually it wasn't really planned, but I was rifling through my bits box and it just started to fit together. I like the parallel, hopefully one day he will get a chance to go toe to toe with Abaddon on the table and avenge Sigismund! And yes in gold he will use Helbrecht's stats (so the claw is just for show!).

Might as well say the claw is a power claw (power fist variant) instead of a lightning claw, so Luther has a way to deal with enemy tanks and Daemon engines.

Grand Marshal Luther (after tearing off a Black Legion Predator's turret, he now wields the turret like a hammer, to batter the Despoiler): "For Sigismund! For Dorn! For the Emperor and His Imperium!"

Abaddon (swings Drach'nyen at the Predator turret, only for the improvised weapon's mass to push back the Daemon weapon, making him cut himself): "Ow! Do something- Ow! Useless Daemon!"

Drach'nyen: "Do what? When you destroyed Cadia instead of conquering that world, you denied me the souls I needed to...!"

Drach'nyen (as the Predator turret shatters Abaddon's skull, spilling the Despoiler's brain across the battlefield): "Grow an extra three meters and match his weapon's reach. Um, Grand Marshal Luther, isn't it? Are you recruiting new... souls... for your crusade? I assure you, I have a lot of experience fighting crusades."

Unit Fluff - Stormbringers (Bladeguard):

 

Spoiler

 

Here are some Bladeguard. I would have used the Forge World shields if they were still available, but alas they are not. I didn't trust myself to mangle the AoS shields so I thought I would just create fluff to suit them!

 

I've gone back and reorganised all my posts to put the fluff in spoiler tags to make it a bit neater. Might add some detail to the OP concerning the Crusade organisation too at a later stage.

Good job on the Stormbringers. The thunderbolts on their shields remind me of the Thunder Warriors who helped the Emperor reunify Terra; I presume this is intentional, and these Templars see their mission as reunifying the galaxy under the Emperor's rule.

Yes I thought about trying to find some tangible link to the original Thunder Warriors but thought the time gap is just too great for any meaningful true connection. Doesn't mean they can't honour them though, which is what they're doing!

Your EC looks a suspicious lot like our first champion Sigismund.

 

Nicly done. I've got Sigismund and am debating wheter to paint him as IF or as BT.

 

I will probably go the BT route, as my Hellbrecht is also in black.

 

Keep up the good work and inspiration!

Yes has to be BT! For the glory of the Eternal Crusade.

Unit Fluff - Ebon Eagles (Terminators):

 

Spoiler

 

Story Fluff - First Blood

 

Spoiler

 

Moving the fluff forward a bit to their first target, and below are my Terminators the Ebon Eagles! I plan to have their spears represent Chainfists, given their enormous size and that they are being wielded in both hands, a swing from one of those could just as easily cut a tank as a man! And the shoulder-mounted bolt-launchers will represent their combi-bolters. 

 

As ever, click the image for better focus!

Yes well spotted! They are Phoenix Guard, I figured as long as I didn't cover them in gold they could get away with the eagle iconography so just kept them in red Sword Brethren colours.

Story Fluff - The Burning of Macharia (Part One):

 

Spoiler

 

I was not quite happy with how Luther looked previously, a bit too much cloak and looked too similar to the Librarian model he was taken from. That conversion was a useful learning experience though.

 

I wanted something a bit more obviously armoured, and so now we have the new Gravis-armoured Luther. Pretty pleased with how he turned out! As ever click for better focus.

Great job on Luther's model! He looks appropriately intimidating.
