The Renascibilitas Crusade [Redemptor WIP]
Marshal Mattias posted a topic in + BLACK TEMPLARS +This is my Crusade Thread; basically a mix of kitbashes, painting logs, battle reports and short story pieces, chonologing the growth of my home-grown crusade. Hope you enjoy something amongst all the nonsense BIG EDIT: Photobucket broke all my pictures... they are back up again, but not sure if this is permanent. In the meantime, here is my library in case you really want to see anything particular: http://s1287.photobucket.com/user/matzeke/library/?sort=3&page=1 First, some background info on the crusade: (For WIP, scroll down to pictures) The brethren of what is now known as the Renascibilitas Crusade were thought lost by their fellow templars when their flotilla vanished into the warp while pursuing a particularly destructive pirate fleet of twisted Eldar sadists, after a long and bitter campaign to push the Xenos back. After many years had passed, the return of these missing brothers came as a surprise. More surprising was their reluctance to discuss exactly where they had been, or why their numbers had dwindled. This information was deemed only for the ears of the high marshal himself. Since their return, the fiery and stoic force have remained distinct from some of their younger and more excitable chapter-brothers. Nevertheless, they demonstrate an unswerving loyalty to the will of the Emperor, and hold strong to some clear truths: The Emperor is the single greatest triumph of mankind and loyalty to him and his design is their highest priority. The Emperor's wisdom is to be respected. He chose to employ certain sanctioned psychic individuals to further his great goals, yet he decreed that his loyal marines should be free from that great burden and temptation. Those battle-brothers who have forgotten this are derided and scorned publicly, and rarely trusted or tolerated on the battlefield. 'Friendly' warning shots have been fired, as have less-friendly ones. This suspicion extends to all pyskers to some degree, but while essential tools of the imperium (astropaths etc) are tolerated within strict boundaries, the reckless use of battle-psykers means that inquisitors and librarians are viewed as one step away from the Xenos and the Heretic. This hasn't stopped the pragmatic leadership of the crusade from working with various chapters, inquisitors and members of the ecclesiarchy, but more than one ally has found that the templars can be fickle in their support. The crusade brothers are closely bonded themselves, likely due to their unspoken experiences in their missing years. As an old brotherhood, they remember the old ways, and the emperors truth. They respect the greatest man to have walked the galaxy, ritualising and dramatising their faith in his mind and design. They crusade in the name of man, not of a god. Their faith and zeal burns bright, a cleansing flame in the dark.
The Sanctus Crusade - Sigismund!
NoPityNoRemorseNoFear posted a topic in + BLACK TEMPLARS +Hi all, Some new bases arrived today and as such I have decided that I need to introduce you all to my crusade. As such I hereby Declare the beginning of the righteous Sanctus Crusade! The crusade was formed from the remains of numerous other completed crusades which had been denied the honor of fighting on armageddon due to their diminished numbers. Each finished crusade provides the expertise from their previous campaigns and adds new elements of warfare with which they are accustomed to, as such these elite warriors of mankind have come together under a new marshal to wage war upon the enemies of mankind. This marshals name: Mortus Helstrom, the aim of this campaign is a simple one: the recovering of sacred artifacts in the name of the emperor and smiting all that oppose him. So this model isn't finished converting yet or even glued to its base so is far from finished but gives a general gist as to what he should turn out as, without further ado I give you Marshal Helstrom! http://i1377.photobucket.com/albums/ah78/Btemp93/temporary_zps0fef7366.jpg?t=1419601794 http://i1377.photobucket.com/albums/ah78/Btemp93/temporary_zps7d441f68.jpg?t=1419601801http://i1377.photobucket.com/albums/ah78/Btemp93/temporary_zps7a8bdf8c.jpg?t=1419601800 Stay posted I have alot of things to post up!

Second Vendetta Crusade
sibomots posted a topic in + BLACK TEMPLARS +What do they say, 'When in doubt, write fluff' ? Maybe, maybe not... Vox chatter picked up serendipitously after the Second Vendetta Crusade command made landfall for a Command and Control Intelligence Reevaluation. Compliance was uniform and Zon and the column of leadership on board Vendetta Crusader Catena Gladius gave orders to secure domain. <fluff> </fluff> +++=== The Project ===+++ The project I started in 2016(?) to build a hand-made (no patterns, no kit) from scratch Keep based on images and ideas drawn from older BT Codex (or current Codex for that matter). I cut out, assembled, and tried to get the start on this. I then put it aside for a while. ( Materials/Methods: 1/4" pressboard, 3/16" birch plywood, bandsaw, drillpress, pnuematic-pinner (think air powered nail-gun but very small headless nails aka -- "pins", and misc parts sculped by hand from pine (soft easy sand) etc.. ) Fast forward years... BT are back in business, literally and figuratively. So, after finishing the latest Indomitus model painting vow, I got some models that are worth billeting into the aforementioned Keep. Prior to the actual Crusade, some planet-fall action takes place. And the Keep, and required structures are next in line. Going to try to think of a courtyard section to envision an honorarium (open air, stone) dais to place rememberances of fallen Brothers of the last Crusade (something about the Armageddon Books is pulling me in that direction.. don't know why). Anyway... the start (re-start) of the Keep. +++=== Next Steps ===+++ Much more to follow as I get around to finishing the woodwork, prime, putty (plaster more like) and so on... The 6' x 4' table isn't pictured but that is the footprint of the whole model terrain idea.. Keep, Honorarium, Field. All of the Space Marines and the Redemptor Dreadnought were completed in the last Indomitus Vow 2021-2022. Models are in the pictures to show relative sizes and format.
