Nice work! The personalisation on the boltgun adds so much character. :) 


Maybe you could model TWC-sized "were-templars" who's inner Templar took over in the fury of battle transforming them into a giant half man - half templar?

Okay... So maybe it's not fully MK II, but it's the thought that counts, right? Unfortunately, I never had the opportunity to get my grubby little paws on any full mkii marines from Forgeworld before they went out of stock. I haven't been giving my Horus Heresy Word Bearers much attention lately (that's a different log for a different day) but damn if I wasn't inspired by Kizzdoug's beautiful Mk2 Emperor's Child over on his log.

 

 So, with what few MK II bits I had lying around (just the head and shoulders,) I followed my inspiration and put together a rather standard line marine from a tactical squad. 

 

This wasn't really planned and we'll return to our regularly scheduled Chaos Worshipers in the 41st Millenium soon enough. 

 

This is giving me strong 'book 2, Word Bearers omnibus vibes', Love it.

Ships sailorless lay rotting on the sea, and their masts fell down piecemeal:
As they dropp'd they slept on the abyss without a surge—
 
The waves were dead; the tides were in their grave, the moon, their mistress, had expir'd before;
The winds were wither'd in the stagnant air, and the clouds perish'd; 
 
Darkness had no need of aid from them

Sorry for the little delay there, folks. I had intended on getting in an update sooner, but I was hitting a brick wall for a little while. Got a good bunch of updates coming in the works. Looking forward to sharing with you guys!
 
 
@Ryltar Thamior: Man, you always give me so much to chew on and think about, which I always do sincerely appreciate. Of course, I can't go into exactly what I'm thinking... otherwise that would spoil everything. What I will say, though, is that something that was very important to me was trying to consider exactly how someone can think of Chaos in an idea of a religion. We always look solely to Chaos a present thing and what it has done to the galaxy in its historical context. However, every religion has some kind of 'beginning'. Clearly, the Gods were born, but they did not create this world. So, from a believer in the faith of Chaos purely see the Gods as solely a product of mortals? Was the universe just the result of the 'Big Bang'? This makes no sense to me. If the warp is supposedly the very life-essence of the divine, then clearly there must be a source. 
 
Of course, everything I produce here is largely a work of pure theoretical, but it's something I'm very fascinated in. I like the idea of those who are willing to look back and see the divine interwoven between reality and the warp. A 'God' that created both corporeal and the incorporeal. To my particular sect of Word Bearer fanatics and their followers, they believe in the radical concept in the same underlying idea as the Hindu Brahman, a formless sentience that weave all forms in visible reality. To these Word Bearers, it is referred to as Phaos, or simply 'The Will'  Which is why the Host refers to itself as the Host of the Grievous Will. It will also become apparent that this Host is largely recognized, even by other members of the Legion, as a Doomsday Cult in some fashion. Buuuut we'll get to that reason. ;)
 
@Kizzdougs: Thank you so much, man! It means a lot to me. Your works is also a sincere inspiration for my work, particularly when it comes to Horus Heresy stuff. I really hope my XVII Legion army comes out half as well as your Emperor's Children.
 
@Bjorn Firewalker: Would you believe me if I told you that he's just a standard lineman Tactical Marine. sweat.gif
 
@Vazzy: Thank you so much for the love, brother!
 
@BadgersinHills: Thank you so much!
 
@Lexington: :D
 
@Hungry Nostraman Lizard: Any particular reason why this made you think of Dark Disciple? :)

OOOoooh! Are you getting onto the Battlefleet:Heresy train as well? 

It reminds me of the assault on the winter-bastion. I forget the name of it, but the Word Bearers come at it through a very strong blizzard, before disembarking from Land Raiders and Rhinos. I remember Reynolds describing it very vividly, the snow almost caking every inch of their armor immediately. I adore that you didn't do the back paneling in red, it's an excellent choice, if I do say so myself.

Weeeell, yes and no. sweat.gif While I could certainly use all of these ships in 30k and there would largely be no difference between them, the intent in this thread is primarily for 40k. That being said, I do have a friend who has a 30k Ultramarines fleet... So him and I should definitely get a game in some time.. 

 

Now that you mention it, I do remember the scene you're referring to. I have a weird relationship with Anthony Reynolds' works in that I find them incredibly engaging, even when I find most of his characters to be entirely uninteresting and shallow at best. That being said, the particular scene you're referencing is probably one of my favorites in the book. 

 

Something about the way MK 3 armour looks with plain back paneling is just really evocative to me. It provides a more utilitarian look and also emphasizes the colored platings. It helps make them pop out more and feel more like... well, reinforced armour. Really glad you like them. smile.png

Very evocative fluff you have going for these guys; it really brings them to life.

The Witch-Deacon is immense! The epitome of chaos; he looks truly evil to the core and a worthy vessel for the pantheon. I like how the trophies look fairly ‘freshly’ added, though theskin parlour and blood looks dark enough to look like they might be starting to smell. Very grisly.

The new guy looks promising also! Again, very grisly, which I wholeheartedly approve of. War, especially Word Bearers war, is not pretty!

Some great stuff here, found while I was looking for something else, and possibly in part stealing the thunder of something I am planning to post, but which you have done better and in more detail than I could have managed. So, damn you, but I come to praise you not to bury you! I will need to think darker and deeper if I should hope to aspire to this level of quality discourse.

Cruelty.

 

It is the sober truth of the Legiones Astartes, a fundamental pillar of our nature. As tools of war, we are meant for battle, weapons meant to maim and murder. Yet we are not the cold algorithm of steel, born into this world with not but fire in our souls. We are born of man, children turned into killers. No matter how far our ascendancy from humanity rises, that core of our nature remains, twisted and honed into the foundation of our minds made for the ferocity of bloodshed. 

 

In Ritual, there is sacrifice, an offering of blood and of spirit. To some, it is seen as freedom when we deliver ourselves body and soul to the Gods and allow the Will of Phaos to flow through us. In melancholy we see our shackles as the slip of bondage, to know ourselves at the most basic and crude level. But it is a sacrifice nonetheless, for what humanity we have is stripped away, torn asunder when there is no use for it, and a man is less than he once was, an animal and a slave to the whims of cruel masters. 

 

For those of the Astartes, such truth is no different, that last vestige of morality and conscience slowly peeled from our minds to give way to such habits most pleasing to the Pantheon. To savor the kill, the murder and carnage, to dominate over others for but the simple thrill of that deifying moment.. Such things are come amongst those slaves to the Dark Gods, and duty gives way to cruelty. It is a curse of the Legiones Astartes sworn to the Dark Gods.

 

No Exceptions.

Thanks, brother. Really looking forward to getting some more paint on the rest of my Chaos ships!

 

Very evocative fluff you have going for these guys; it really brings them to life.

The Witch-Deacon is immense! The epitome of chaos; he looks truly evil to the core and a worthy vessel for the pantheon. I like how the trophies look fairly ‘freshly’ added, though the skin parlour and blood looks dark enough to look like they might be starting to smell. Very grisly.

The new guy looks promising also! Again, very grisly, which I wholeheartedly approve of. War, especially Word Bearers war, is not pretty!

I honestly take this as the highest of praise, coming from the man of the Flesh Eaters. 

I genuinely couldn't be happier with how my Word Bearers have been coming out. It's been a long time coming and a lot of trial and error, but I'm finally fully satisfied with the overall level and quality of my work. 

 

The idea for the 'prayer scrolls' came from our old associate and member RazakelXIII and his truly grizly Word Bearers. Previously, I had just been painting my prayer scrolls just as parchment and it annoyingly blended too much with the skulls and bones already decorating the armour and base. After searching for inspiration, I ran across Razakel's old work. Tor'Val here was actually the prototype for the concept, so he didn't turn out quite as well as the others did, but I'm still happy with the result and outcome.

 

Essentially, the thought process is that my Word Bearers, much in the same tradition that loyalist Astartes mimic, adorn new prayers upon their armour before the even of each battle. Rather than mere parchment, colchisian runes are tattooed onto the skin of devouted slaves before the skin is 'cleanly' cut and peeled away to adorn the armour of the blessed warriors. There is no higher honour for such chattel. 

 

And you're right. War, and the war of the Word Bearers in particular, is a particularly gruesome and horrific thing. To me, Word Bearer are, in every way, more terrible and horrifying a creature than any of the other legions. Whenever I think of the XVII Legion, I remember the single line from AD-B's Betrayer

 

"Khârn loathed that smile, because this one wasn't false. It was the smile of a murderer, not a warrior. Fanatics smiled like that."

 

I can't wait to see what's next. But it is the good kind of pain - the one that brings us closer to the gods! smile.png

Bonus points for using the Styx.
It is probably my favorite class from the Gothic game and I always felt that it's the vessel of choice for the serious warlord: fast, lance weaponary and ample launch capabilities for Thunderhawks and Boarding Pods.

Yeah man. The Styx has always been my favorite of the Cruisers. But, then again, smallcraft carriers have always been a favorite of mine. 

 

Some great stuff here, found while I was looking for something else, and possibly in part stealing the thunder of something I am planning to post, but which you have done better and in more detail than I could have managed. So, damn you, but I come to praise you not to bury you! I will need to think darker and deeper if I should hope to aspire to this level of quality discourse.

Thank you so much, though I'm curious to know what you had in mind that I stole tongue.png

Before battle, the Word Bearers gather in ritual prayer, chanting blasphemous hymns and forbidden doctrine to affirm their faith in the power of Chaos. Often these chants will be answered and it is common for the Word Bearers to fight alongside hideous daemonic entities that have made diabolical pacts with the Dark Apostles.
 
The Word Bearers then raise their damned standards high and march into battle beneath cursed icons, bellowing catechisms and canticles of hatred at their foe as hideous drums beat out a dolorous thunder. The relentless advance of the Word Bearers is a terrifying sight, as the monotonous chant and beat of drums can break even the strongest will. The night before battle, the enemy can hear dark mutterings emanating from all around, echoed in the pounding drums, stretching the nerve and instilling every man with fear.
 
The unshakeable belief of the Word Bearers that they alone can save the galaxy has seen them marching towards certain death, yet unwilling to take a single step backwards. Any victory won over the Word Bearers is only won at a terrible cost, as their attacks will only ever end when all are dead.

Didn't the Black Psalm have an array of gorgeous looking tanks in the Imperial Armour 13? For some reason, I can't seem to locate my copy of the book so I couldn't cheek. I think the general concept of Chaos as a real religion is often overlooked in 40k and narrators usually just gloss over it. Word Bearers and their form of faith would, naturally, be the most common standard. I could certainly see the Black Psalm, if they had some kind of connection to the XVII Legion, could certainly have some overlapping values. 

 

Really great stuff though, man. You should keep it up and see what you can make of it!

 

Excellent work on Tor'Val's model, and the accompanying narration. Is he sworn to Khorne, as the narration suggests?

Haha. Again, as with the tactical marine, he's a standard Word Bearer and so follows all of the Gods equally.  rolleyesclean.gif

Thats a good mod on the new CSM shoulderpad trims. I'll keep that in mind for future reference.

Excellent work on Gro'Vaar's model.
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.

You make me want to give the XVII another try. I did two color recipes that I wasn't content with, looking back on them.

Well, I certainly wouldn't recommend mine! While I do absolutely adore the completed product, I will whole-heartedly admit that it takes forever and is an absolute pain in the ass to produce. I would absolutely love to see you do some Word Bearers though, man.

Sorry, but I'm not entirely sure what you're referring to. What mod? :huh:
