"I have lost brothers, aye, and wept over their graves. Good men deserve tears to mark their passing. Even the Emperor weeps when His warriors fall. Royal thralls gather that mourning dew in blessed vials, to be treasured as relics forevermore. Regret is weakness. Guilt is weakness. But sorrow? Sorrow is a chamber in any soldier's heart. Sorrow is felt even by the divine."

High King Arucatas, Chapter Master of the Emperor's Spears


"Skovakarah uhl zarûn! Skovakarah uhl zarûn!" ("Redden the earth!") - Warcry of the Emperor's Spears

 
 
Hello all of you uptight snobs. I'm starting this thread here as a more Narrative log for my Emperor's Spears and unfortunately it has to go here tongue.png
 
I had always wanted to do a melee Chapter, as my Dark Angels are the "shooty" Marines. I didn't want Blood Angels or Space Wolves, as there's multiple players at my FLGSes of both of those chapters. And Black Templars... Well, My Dark Angels are painted 30k so I'm not doing two Black Space Marine armies laugh.png
 
Then I found the thread on the Emperor's Spears being written by the amazing ADB. So, after buying the Collector's Edition, and waiting until the paperback came out to properly read it (because that book felt too good for me to dirty with my grubby hands) and I safe to say, was hooked.
 
So, I started building a force. These will be my first forays into airbrushing, as the scheme I found (from Tangui Jollivet) several months ago is an airbrushed scheme (and of COURSE his scheme is shown/explained in White Dwarf 460, but he doesn't go into detail how it's done laugh.png)
 
The list of my force so far (Red is built, Orange is in progress (primed and progress of painting), Green is completed):
  • Dark Imperium (sans Gravis Captain: Battleguard (Lieutenant), Battleguard (Lieutenant), Primaris Ancient, 5 Intercessors, 5 Intercessors, 3 Inceptors, 5 Hellblasters)
  • Know no Fear (Warhost Lord in Gravis Armour, 5 Intercessors, 3 Inceptors, 5 Hellblasters)
  • Intercessor Squad x10 (to reinforce the squad from Dark Imperium and Know no Fear)
  • Intercessor Squad x10
  • Hellblaster Squad x10
  • Paragons (Sternguard Veterans) x5
  • Indomitus (Warhost Lord, Paragon Battleguard, Druid (Chaplain), Druid (Judiciar), 3 Paragons (Bladeguard Veterans), Paragon Ancient (Bladeguard Ancient), 5 Assault Intercessors, 5 Assault Intercessors, 3 Eradicators, 3 Outriders)
  • Recruit Edition (Paragon Battleguard (converted into a Sergeant for Veteran Intercessors), 5 Assault Intercessors)
  • Command Edition (Warhost Lord (will be converted into a Primaris Chapter Ancient), 5 Assault Intercessors, 3 Outriders)
  • Assault Intercessors x10
  • Assault Intercessors x10
  • Gladiator Reaper
  • Druid (Primaris Techmarine)
  • Druid (Primaris Chaplain on Bike)
  • Redemptor Dreadnought
And here's the first painted Spear:

My dropper bottles will be in next week, so I should be able to start painting them fully soon.

First one is looking good. I have not read the novels yet for the Emperor's Spears, but I want to when I get the chance.

That helmet is amazing. Plus I love love love this model. Are you going to get some 3-d printed gear for them?

Thanks! Currently it's only the one novel and a short story in a White Dwarf, but they're very interesting.

Thanks! I'm surprised it came out so well, as it's just Corax White, Apothecary White recess shade and White Scar highlights (future Spears' will have Nuln Oil in the smaller vents on the front of their helmets).

 

And yes. Though "some" is an understatement. As I've got close to 700 dollars worth of 3D printed bits and bobs for them planned out (between PopGOESTheMonkey, our own Ezr91aeL's The Reliquary and Martillo y Cola) :lol:

 

Aesthetics!

No updates yet, but I have gotten more of my Spears built in preparation for when my dropper bottles get here :yes:

Got my airbrush fired up tonight (properly) and attempted some base-coating.

 

This was the test model last night (when my airbrush was constantly leaking):

Progress update! I am NEVER AGAIN batch-painting this many dudes at once. Having to recess-shade 42 Primaris Marines is a special kind of hell I never wish to experience again laugh.png

 
I also messed up on the shade intensity on the first 10 models (2 Battleguard, Primaris Ancient and some Intercessor models) as straight Drakenhof Nightshade is far too dark, so I have to blend it back with some more Alaitoc Blue.
 
The Battleguard on the left is the un-thinned Drakenhof Nightshade, the Intercessor on the right is Drakenhof Nightshade thinned 1:1 with Lahmian Medium.

Looking forward to seeing how this progresses

Thanks!

These look excellent!
Its, "space wolf," not "Space Wolf," or "SPACE WOLF," or "spacewolf" I'm the only Astartes cool enough to spell his name without capital letters! But if you're feeling decorous, you may add a "THE" in front of it.
