The Promethean Crusade


Recommended Posts

Hey brothers of the Eternal Crusade!

 

I started a Primaris Crusade a long time ago. I painted about 10 models and didn’t follow through as I got distracted by my Krieg force.

 

Now it’s a new year and my brother wants to join in on the 40k fun!

 

He’d previously started his own Successor Chapter but has fallen in love with everyone’s favourite Space Crusaders!

 

We have a deal, he’ll do the modelling and I’ll do the painting.

 

True to form, I started with the model that I’d enjoy painting most!

 

Here’s the Marshal (as yet unnamed) of the Promethean Crusade:

Gotta say the new Black Templars range is phenomenal and I can’t wait to do more!

 

Thanks for looking and please let me know what you think.

Thanks very much brothers!

 

Slave to Darkness, nice to see you active here too! I’ll be mixing things up between my Krieg and the Templars so should keep both threads updated frequently!

 

Brother Captain Vakarian, I’m looking forward to adding more soon.

 

Bjorn Firewalker thanks for the encouragement!

 

Cheers Brother Kraskor! I thought I’d over done it with the gold so I’m glad you think it works.

 

Next up will be the first Crusader squad.

Small update.

 

I finished the first model of the Crusader squad!

 

The level of detail on the new Black Templars Primaris is just mind blowing.

 

Even the troops sport the detail of other faction’s characters! Can’t say enough good things about them.

 

Anyway, here’s the pics:

More Crusaders to come! I’m loving these models!

I'm pretty much of the mind set that space marine design has now peaked with the sword brethren kit. I've yet to deep diverse into the crusader kit, but I imagine that with the exception of there only being two neophyte body poses aside, im going to have a much similiar opinion of the crusader kit.

Brother Kraskor, thanks again!

 

Cheers Bjorn Firewalker.

 

Reinhard, couldn’t agree more! Believe me when you get around to the Crusader Squad you’re gonna love it!

 

There’s enough bitz to make the squad plus Templar up another squad (in my case it’ll be Intercessors)

 

I’m currently working on my fourth Initiate and I’m wondering shall I add a flaming torch on his back pack to single him out as a relic bearer?

 

I could use the representation of the relics that’s in the upgrade pack but then I can only use that particular one.

 

Plus being the Promethean Crusade they need fire right?

Cheers Urkh!

 

I’ve made some progress on the Templars this week!

 

First up are the Initiates for the Crusader Squad (another squad is in the post!)

 

I found these very interesting and a joy to paint, every model oozes character and the threat of righteous zeal!

 

Here’s the pics:

Apologies for the wall of pics but I got a little trigger happy!

Thanks Bjorn Firewalker!

 

Slave to Darkness, haha! Yeah it’d be rude not to include the Holy Hand Grenade!

 

Reinhard, cheers! Go for it! It’s a fantastic set.

 

As for the red fingers, it’s a nod to my bruv’s old successor chapter!

 

I thought it would give another point of interest on the model.

I’ve finally finished the first Crusade Squad!

 

I really enjoyed these Neophytes (dodgy hair cuts aside!)

 

The squad as a whole is just festooned with added details.

 

Here’s the pics:

I struggled a lot on the faces as I’m used to painting rebreather units.

 

I think they turned out ok.

 

Next up will be the Emperor’s Champion.
