Hi everyone! Long time lurker first time poster, wanted to start a thread to help with motivation for my new crusade. It's a combination of new purchases in the last year and an old firstborn force I tried my hand and I'm now rescuing, from 8 years ago when I was 16 and didn't pay attention to mold lines! 

 

Forged in the fires of the Imperium Nihilus comes The Ardent Vigil Crusade. A combination of Armageddon firstborn veterans and fresh primaris recruits now wrestling for control with chaos forces in a sector containing several Imperial Shrine worlds at High Marshal Helbretch's behest. I might write up some proper lore later but the rough idea I have is they are wary allies will a big culture conflict, the new primaris recruits not adhering to the chapter's tradition. 

 

For now here is the painted group, as well as Templars we've got assassin allies as well as the local guard infantry that I usually speed paint with drybushing and washes to blow off steam.

And finally my conversion triumvirate, left to right is a jump captain, jump chaplain and the Helsreach legend himself.

Your models are well-painted. The Ancient's standard looks great!
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.

Lovely clean style! The gold looks especially realistic to me. Beautiful banner and cool conversions, can't wait to see them finished.

Welcome to the Crusade. Nice work on that Primaldus conversion - he's going to end up looking very similar to mine - I also based mine on Lt Zakariah.

Thanks for the warm welcome and great feedback everyone!

 You are very right as I used your Primaldus conversion for lots of reference, think using Lt Zakariah was a really good idea. I think the only major difference is I managed to snag the Hvarl Redblade scenic base.

Just a small update, my own primaldus is assembled (mostly) and now starting to block out colours, lots of staring at various art pieces of Grimaldus and figuring out what to keep and what to change!

Grimaldus himself is finally painted! Need to get the base done ASAP since I've got a game booked in with an ork friend who leaves the country soon and we've got one last game planned, and Grimaldus will meet Ghaz on the field! Overall really happy with the result though.

The chains on the plasma pistol are lovely.

Thanks everyone, really appreciate it! The hvarl red-blade base is currently soaking in soapy water so hopefully get that done soon.

Grimaldus is well-painted. How will you decorate his base?
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.
