Hey guys, now that ive finished my DA's (just about anyway) I have decided to start 2 new armies. The first of these will be a Scythes of the Emperor force. Painted my test model last night. Sorry about the average quality pictures.

Few things to note about this model.
- I used what i had left in my box as i always do with my test models
- He was assembled quickly hence there is a few mould lines visable
- He is painted to represent a Sergeant (Specifically Manuel Calibre if you read my short story)
- He has an ornate relic bolter which looks rubbish in teh pictures but actually has a lot of fillagrie detail which the camera couldnt pick out
- Im also really eager to improve my free hand so if it looks a bit below par at the minute or i have lots of unnessessary bits, please excuse it
- i had never painted yellow before so i used the same method i use now for my DW. (brown base, 1:2 brown:yellow, yellow, 1:1 yellow:white highlights)
- Im working on my black armour highlighting.

My force is going to consist of the following (im unsure of what rules to use but thats another matter) to begin with,

-Custom built Captain Anvil (Based upon Lysander)
- 4 Custom Sergeants
- 4 Tac squads
- 2 rhinos

So yes im looking for C&C, thanks

I hope this gives you some insight to the Scythes.
'Brothers! These foul Aliens stand before us, thinking they are powerful enough to resist us! But they have made one, massive, terrible mistake; they have forgotten who they face!'

'FOR WE ARE THE MARINES MALEVOLENT, CHOSEN OF THE EMPEROR, THE ONLY TRUE SERVANTS OF HIS GLORIOUS WILL!! FORGED WITH HATE, ARMORED WITH TRUTH, TEMPERED WITH BLOOD!!! THESE XENOS SHALL FALL!!!!

FOR GLORY! FOR HATE!! FOR THE GREAT CRUSADE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm not a big fan of the helmet and high collar
But go scythes; the more the better.

Nice job painting it, though he is a bit fancy for a sergeant but that's fine if you can make the commander that much cooler.

Nice work, always good to see a Scythes army.

What else you got planned?

I've not actually planned anything! ^_^ :sweat: If im honest im not 100% sure which direction to take.

Im going to get a SM battleforce and see what i can do with that. Im currently putting 3 armys together, My DW are 95% finished and ive just started the Scythes and a Chaos army as well (Word Bearers or Alpha legion, still undecided) so it may take me a few months (and Pay cheques!) to get things rolling.
