@ Custom Hero

 

Thank you, I might come back to the chain knives in the future. I've made a unit with the chainswords as Assault Intercessors.

 

 

 

As I've been playing Crusade recently I've switched my attention to getting the models built.

 

Here is a Sergeant for the Assault Intercessors...

Here's the squad. I enjoyed trying to get a little bit of Striking Scorpion flavour into these.

Here is a Suppressor sergeant...

Here's the squad...

And finally a phobos Captain conversion. Went full predator influence on this one.

Not too keen on the sergeant's hammer personally, and would replace the large head with a pick or similar sharp implement. Mantis and hammers just feels a tad....off. The Pred Captain however is inspired, amazing conversion and use of bits.

Fantastic work overall.

More conversions from Krakendoomcool, so exciting! 

 

That predator captain is inspired and completely epic! I also love your suppressor conversions, I really enjoyed the original models but felt really hampered with the choice (or rather, the lack of poses) and am so glad you were able to make yours look so unique!

 

So looking forward to seeing these guys painted up to match your previous Mantis Warriors!

Captain conversion is beyond cool, but i have to ask, did he take the time to strip that skull of all its flesh, seeing as the body is still got the fleshy bits on it? tongue.png

Whoa, that cap is simply fantastic! I always wanted to make some spears for my BAs and those look great.

Those not-mandiblasters might have taken care of that perhaps? msn-wink.gif

Man that captain rocks! He is so menacing, it fits super well with a sneaky guerrilla tactics chapter like the Mantis Warriors. Where does the spear come from by the way?

Your army is one of the best out there as far as theme and originality are concerned. I love what you did to the Suppressors, they don't look silly like that and the Reiver helmet suits them.

Keep up the good work!

@ oldschoolsoviet

 

Thank you. With the sergeant I might think about doing a claw hammer shape if i can find a good bit. Probably now i'm crusading with these im being influenced by the rules i want, like I want a Thunder Hammer now.

 

@ Smoke Frog

 

Thank you so much buddy! I felt the same way about those Suppressors and hadn't seen many if any changes to the poses. I wanted a bit of variation in there.

 

@ Reinhard

 

Thank you. It's whatever a Predator does, spinal rip (?). At the painting stage there will be a lot of blood and gore, the skull and spine will be almost completely red.

 

@ Majkel

 

Thanks so much. I'm using Ossiarch Bonereaper bits, check those out.

 

@ jpwyrm

 

Thank you. Spear is from the Ossiarch Bonereaper, the ones one horseback specifically. Thank you so much for the compliment, if I could hopefor anything it would be to have a great themed and original army!

 

 

 

 

I've finally finished painting the last Bladeguard Veteran!

 

img_6393.jpg?w=722

 

The next thing on the building table is an Invictor. The kit is fantastic for posability. In fact i think i can build two very different builds without using glue and just magnetising the gun.

It's work in progress but I'm excited for this model.

Having just finished an Invictor myself (and working on a second); reversing the pelvis and legs is an interesting idea... I like it!

Love the bladeguard veterans, glad to see all three painted up!

 

Favorite Mantis Warriors I have ever seen, the conversions really make them unique and come alive with so much character!
