  1. Greetings fellow followers of the eightfold path. I am a recent convert to the dark powers having long pledged myself to the Dark Angels, I turn now to my most evil creations, the word bearers. These are the word bearers of the black Heralds chapter and I hope to use this as way to show off paint jobs, bat reps and flesh out the storyline of this legion offshoot. By way of intro here’s my first ever batrep using them. Hope you like it… part 1 With the imperial capital falling to the hands of Chaos and the Forces of the Death Guard ascendant a new threat emerges on the calixis sector and the Hazeroth Abyss. The Word bearers have come forth lead by their Dark Apostle Kor Harken. Their sights have been set on the world of Regulus. Leaving a bloody trail of victims, Harken and his possessed have nearly complete control of the planet. After surprise at the swiftness of their arrival, the Black Templar garrison on their fortress world of Cloister have sent a relief force led by brother Redemptor Karno and his captain Altair. The brother Captain Tomaso Altair brings forth his brothers to confront the menance… Deployment: the word bearers have set up in the agricultural processing facility. While the black templars setup at the edge of the city. Wb Dark apostle Cultists 10 Possessed 5+ 1 champion Obliterators x2 Black templars Captain Assault intercessors x5 Veteran Bladeguard x3 Redemptor dreadnaught ‘Prepare to show these dogs the power of the Pantheon!” T1 - Black Templars Marines burst forward from cover of the red temple ‘Cut down down the heretic with blade of faith and hearts of hate!’ The redemptor dreadnaught unleashes its hell fire on the obliterators but the word bearers use a hexaggrammatic ward blunting its potency. T1-word bearers The word bearers move about the cliffs for protection, while obliterators unleash on the bladeguard, the cultists take a few shots at the bladeguard inflicting 1 wound. “Prepare to die imperial dogs” The resulting melee sees the intercessors left with only blood stumps, while the possessed take minimal casualties. Full batrep found at blog spot but rest will be posted here over the week. http://legionofcaliban.blogspot.com/2022/09/calixis-campaign-eightfold-path.html
  2. Hey folks! I am brand new to Horus Heresy. I've always been intrigued by the Word Bearers ever since I read The First Heretic, but I've never liked the Chaos range in 40k. There's too much trim and teeth and tentacles. Horus Heresy allows me to dip my feet into the heretic pool without having to deal without all that nonsense! (until I want to -- planning some Gal Vorbak down the line). In any case, here's what I've got so far! Planning on updating here as I complete models. First up is my Praetor! Captain Esarhaddon of the Serrated Suns. He is Corrupted, and wields a Tainted Blade. Here is my first tactical squad! Outfitted with bayonets.
  3. It has been quite some time, and Warhammer has changed along with B&c. I don’t quite know where to start with my word bearers, but here’s where I’m at. How is the life of a chaos marine nowadays?
  4. Old content here in the OP, can disregard, I'm keeping it here to edit/modify it in the future. The first page is discussion re: a discarded idea. Had this thread moved to WIP forum to be merged with my other WIP thread. Thank you for looking! Currently writing up a bunch of narrative for fun as well, hope to share that soon. Much more to come!
  5. We Bear the Word Clothed in darkness, gilded in fervor By aethyr bound, an unbroken creed Through our faith we are known For we are the Ebon Word We Bear the Word of the Warmaster Chosen to serve under the broken Legion Long have we toiled without our Lord's eyes upon us Long have our brothers denounced us as traitors For we are the Ebon Word We Bear the Word of Lorgar Our pact is hidden, our blood runs true We are a twisting blade in the hands of the Despoiler We guard the Eightfold Path For we are the Ebon Word We Bear the Word of Chaos Bound to break the dreams of Man Our travels vast, our works unending The red hands of Chaos reach out For we are the Ebon Word
  6. "Put your trust only in the weapons you bear; for even those you consider closest might harbour thoughts of malice and treason under the familiar visage of a trusted brother." Unnamed Word Bearer Legionary. Unidentified firearm. Speculated to be a Khaladine pattern bolt rifle. Torso plate bears superficial damage, likely from previous engagement.
  7. Greetings all. It has been a quick minute since I posted on the forums (way back in the depths of 2019). Some of you may recall my Thousand Sons, but this time I am back with a slightly different shade of red, the arterial red of the XVIIth legion. My friend wanted to get back into heresy and what better way then to split the launch box. This gave us both a core foundation to build on as we evenly split the tactical marines and terminators. I wanted to go with a look that was metallic red reminiscent of what was found in Book 2 Massacre and Book 5 Tempest. I chose the Flayed Hand chapter to represent the bulk of the legionaries though members of other Chapters will be appearing due to their presences on the lovely transfer sheet. Below are my initial works (not pictured is the Spartan). I've not quite decided on an expansion direction. Likely expansion directions include the Kratos, a mix of Rhinos and Drop Pods to lean into different rites of war, and then a unit of Procurators from the exemplary battles. Flayed Hand Chapter, 3rd Battalion First tactical squad - During the build process I had built all the bodies up and promptly forgot which arms paired best with each body, this led to some more varied posing with the bolters. For colour variety of the armour I have incorporated more black and silver panels on the back-packs. I also blacked in some of the beaks. As I had ran out of spare bolt pistols, I decided that the plasma pistols would become warpfire pistols for which I wanted an eerie green glow. After initial highlights on the armour I then apply a highlight with iron hands steel to reemphasis the metallic look of the armour and to added battle damage. Tactical squad two - This was the squad I built first and very much stuck to the instructions. Head poses do slightly mask the the repeating poses a little bit. This squad also has the most bare heads for variety. Since I used them here I didn't want repeating faces in the squad above. In the back you can see some of my initial test marines whilst I was waiting for the boxset to arrive. Now we come to Praetor Endyios Feyd, commander of the 3rd Battalion of the Flayed Hand Chapter. He is likely to be joined by a diabolist in the future. Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.
  8. Hey BnC I’ve got a couple logs up here - right now the active ones are my Iron Warriors 30k legion and my 40k Zerkers kill team. I also have a very slow progress log based around Fabius bile and the Emperor’s Children, and a Carcharadons army which is on Hiatus. So why make a fifth? The answer is simple. I love converting things. Sometimes I’ll see a piece and think it looks perfect for X Legion/Chapter/Xenos and I’ll put something together real quick. Some of my favourite kitbashes and conversions happen this way, but I have no place here to share them - so I wanted to put together a blog where I can post whatever, whenever, regardless of army. So to kick this off I’ll start with my current WIP - A late Heresy Word Bearer by the name of Myr Khothon, known as the Zealot of Cassidium Primus. Here he is a little before I finished converting him (some changes made to the right arm): And here he is now, nearing the end of painting! Here’s a close up of the glow effects on his conjuring hand as light glows through from between his fingers: LMK what you think! There’s plenty more to come, I’ve got years of conversions (Some of which are actually painted!) to share. CC welcome! Cheers
  9. Hello one and all!I've been in the hobby on and off for 16 something years and thought I'd make a thread for my endeavours in the ol' B&C. The Horus Heresy bandwagon hit me like a brick when it started and I've always had a soft spot for chemical warfare so picking a favourite legion was easy. I've been working on this true scale (Shoutout to Doghouse!) Death Guard army for about a year but never really bothered posting much about it. I'm aiming for about 2500 points and will see how far this leads me after that. There's lots of stuff in the works (tacticals, terminators, heavy support...) but this is all I've bothered taking pictures of at the moment. Less talk and more pics, right. First squad. http://i.imgur.com/rr9160U.jpg?1 http://i.imgur.com/gK1KOeJ.jpg http://i.imgur.com/XxssMSh.jpg Pimped out ride and some sense of scale. The Rhino is based on a 1/35 M113 APC if someone is wondering. http://i.imgur.com/1q8rzZ7.jpg Praetor http://i.imgur.com/IWd88zX.jpg Consul http://i.imgur.com/CHQhxUo.jpg Imperial Space Marine http://i.imgur.com/8SKNLYS.jpg That's about it for now, will post more stuff soon as things progress. I hope you enjoy them and am happy to answer any questions, C&C is always appreciated. Cheers!

    My first Word Bearer since I decided to go WB again (for the 100th time...), getting this holy warband done... for Aurelian!
  18. Greetings Bearers of the Word, Does the Diabolist gain preferred enemy on shooting attacks? The text in Horus Heresy book 5 states "The Diabolist gains the daemon special rule and preferred enemy added to all their close combat attacks (in addition to any other weapon effects)." Does the text in the brackets mean he also gains preferred enemy on shooting attacks? - or solely during combat?
