361st Krieg Mechanized Regiment
116th Assault Korps, Salient Cluster Garrison
‘...as to the reason for their presence here in the Cluster, I am unsure, although I hypothesize that one of the more reclusive among our number is the architect of this decision. They are a potent tool, the mere threat of their arrival enough to dissuade rebellion from rearing its traitorous head.
In those instances when that is not enough, when a demonstration of their power is required, they serve unerringly, unwavering in their purpose, and brutally excise the cancer of heresy, crushing those who would flaunt the Emperor's light.
Indeed, the need for the 116th Korps is a mystery to both myself and many of my colleagues, but I sleep more soundly for their presence.'
- Lord Aevander Amaxus Bel Theryk, Inquisitor, Salient Conclave (attr.)
I recently took the plunge and bought some DKoK minis from Forge World, as I've always wanted to collect an army of them. I figured that with so many other fine regiments present, this was the place to post my progress as my collection grows.
With most of my other logs, I've focused primarily on narrative blurbs and background (like the above), so this time I wanted to try my hand on the actual WIP of the army, as it is something I've never really done before. With that said, as a total fluff junkie, I'm sure one or two narrative elements might find their way onto the log.
Anyways, here are the obligatory pictures, the first recruits for the 361st!
