http://i.imgur.com/7vsAoyb.jpg “What did you do? Answer me.” “I saved him, Khârn. It was the only way.” - Khârn, 8th Company Captain and the Primarch Lorgar Aurelian Greetings Loyalist and Traitor alike! Unsubtle title, hey? Welcome to my log of what is my new project, the equally unsubtle XII Legion. After a long break from the hobby, I have decided to finally get my juices flowing with my World Eaters, a project I have been sitting on for a while with boxes of bits hanging around waiting to be built. Those of you who know my previous work, my Flesh Eaters and my Black Legion, should know what to expect - I have always had a ‘thing’ for the more blood thirsty Chapters and Warband aspects of 40k, so my first foray into the Heresy was always going to be Angron’s unwanted sons. As you may have guessed buy the quote from Betrayer, I am going to be setting this army as late heresy, post Nuceria. By that, it will be post ascension of Angron and coloured in the newer, white and red scheme published by Forge World. I won’t be going overly Khornate, but there will be a few Khorne runes and fetishes dotted around the army - the warriors may not even know what it means or simply view it as a good luck charm - I am sure the fact that their Primarch has turned in to a :cussing huge Daemon Prince have some baring in their outlook in life ! My decision on the late heresy setting was also helped by the fact Angron is currently out of stock at Forge World, surely a sign from the Blood God? ;) Righto, enough rambling, time for some pictures. First up, test dude - http://i.imgur.com/y8FfcqK.jpg http://i.imgur.com/UQ7VSXR.jpg http://i.imgur.com/3v7ABbP.jpg http://i.imgur.com/EfDMToe.jpg http://i.imgur.com/QgAmhIM.jpg He was basically just thrown together with spare marine parts, there is in fact only his head, shoulder pads and arms that are actually HH !! Quite happy with how he turned out really, as white can be troublesome (the red and brass were already decided on) and I wanted it to look good, but not take an absolute age to do as, let’s face it, I don’t get a great deal of hobby time any more. I will be going for the green glow on power weapons and eyes as per my Flesh Eaters. Also, I know his pose doesn’t look particularly late heresy XII Legion (ie, lost the plot pose!) but hopefully his mates do a bit more - http://i.imgur.com/aS5ftnW.jpg Some of my faves - http://i.imgur.com/sSpLjmV.jpg The Sarum pattern helmets, also marine sporting arm from a Khorne Bloodreaver - http://i.imgur.com/cHRLs0R.jpg And finally, my entry in to Grotsmashers “Warlord Conversion Challenge” over in the WIP forum, Praetor Drakus Ghorn, 17th Assault Company - http://i.imgur.com/FEeuoMG.jpg Rawr http://i.imgur.com/Gz8h9iE.jpg http://i.imgur.com/Gyv3tEN.jpg I know, I have done the cloak of skulls in the past, but it just feels right for this guy! So the story goes, he was killed at Terra after rampaging his way through single combats with loyalist champions and adorning his cloak with their skulls. He was last seen duelling a red skinned Daemon thing with an equally impressive cloak of skulls atop a statue of an aquilla, enveloped in blood red smoke at the height of the fight obscuring the outcome. Neither was seen once the smoke abated. Maybe. His powerfist is magnetized, as will his back pack be for a jump pack, as I am planning on running two squads of assault marines :tu: Also in the works (read in a box, unbuilt under my bed) are a Spartan, a Leviathan with a Lucious Pod, and some various things requisitioned from my other armies including a Deredeo. I also have 50 FW Chainaxes of varying types :tu: The Spartan in particular is a point of interest as I have had it for 3 or 4 years! Surely, now is the time :D Anyway, c&c most welcome, hopefully you enjoy the bloody ride and in the words of the XII, “Kill or be killed!!”
