Emerald Fists - Sternguard Complete




 
Finished!  These guys definitely look bling enough to be in first company.  I remember when I started with the Emerald Fists I didn't want them too be overly flashy.  Problem is gold just looks really good on space marines as an accent.  Especially when it's just on veterans and such so that theory is out the window.  It messes with my original captains but oh well.  Maybe they're just not the ostentatious ones.

Bandwagon! - Khorne Daemonkin


For a few reasons, partly because I'm not playing really and want a close combat army so I can try another play style, secondly because I am bored of painting white, and thirdly because khorne is such a pure theme, I'm jumping on the daemonkin bandwagon.  I'd never played with the daemons codex because all of the tables and rules honestly pushed me away.  I couldn't be bothered to write down and keep track of so much random junk nor did I want to play with random things.  So this, with its clean up approach really pulled the trigger on me starting a new army.

Renos - Building a Man Cave

Starting in October 2014 I decided it was time to finish renovating my basement.  Half of my basement was built by the home builder (a rec room and a bathroom) and the back half was left unfinished (just a large space with the furnace, water heater and laundry).  Over the years of living here the room slowly became disorganized and full of junk (not hoarder level junk but still a mess).  Building code when my house was built only required insulation half way down the wall in a basement.  You can see the mess of a 'back room' on the left.  The entire process took 5 months (lots of weekends and after work).  I've never done something like this before but youtube is an incredible resource.  Lots of research and about 50 hours at home depot (always forgetting something) and I finished at the end of February.  A few WIP shots below (not to be too boring).

Emerald Fists - Sternguard PIP 3

Well I thought I was done, had them all mounted and everything then realised that they had no weapons.  Next time I guess.

Another week and more progress.  I'm nearing the end on these ones.  Some lenses and I think I'm finished!

[Fluff] The Siege of Bruj - Chapter 3

Based on an adaptation of the Badab War Campaign, the result of 5 games of Warhammer 40k are being used to write a recount of 'The Siege of Bruj', a compendium for the background of the traitorous elements of the Emerald Fists; my homebrew chapter.  The results are being formatted with photographs of my models and the battles.  Enjoy.

Emerald Fists - Sternguard PIP

I made a lot of progress on these guys rather quickly.  I previously went with red cloth on my models but in hindsight think it's too much colour.  The blue-white is much more subtle and I think the direction I'll go in the future.

Emerald Fists Army Shot (Huge) Must See!

I was moving my Warhammer stuff around and had some time to take some photos of all of the Emerald Fists I've done so far.  There's about 90% of my 3rd company, 30% of first company plus all of the vehicles and support units for them.  Also sprinkled into the photos are 50 or so chaos marines and daemons to match the loyalists.  More to come over the next year though, I have a lot of stuff to put together and paint including more terminators, boarding marines, devestators and a reaver titan!
