I have been working on a few miniatures recently, with a view to designing my own chapter. And this is one such mini.
Briefly, the idea behind the chapter is that it is a Raven Guard successor chapter, and it was all but wiped out. With the arrival of the Primaris marines, the Chapter has a shot at survival. However things haven’t quite gone to plan, as many of the wargear and resources have not made it to their home world, and the Raven Guard have a history of unstable geneseed….
I am not 100% certain on the name. I chose sons of the Raven because they were allegedly wiped out, and I like the idea. But I was tempted with “Sons of the Crow”. Anyway. the basic thoughts are bumbling about in my brain.
Next up on the Dark Imperium challenge. The Hellblasters. I managed to work on these, and the Intercessors at the same time. Cutting a few corners. but able to keep the standard as high as I would like.
I have set myself the challenge of finishing off the Dark Imperium set before the new Indomitus box set comes out. This is the second squad of Intercessors, the squad of Hellblasters will be very soon after these!
Well, I dislike painting tanks, so this ended up being a little sloppy. But if I want to get my Ultramarines finished this year I had to buckle down and get it done. I have two more Repulsor tanks to paint, a regular and the Executioner variant. I also have the Impulsor. My idea is to try and spread out painting them, so I don’t get too disheartened.
I recently painted this chap. I am pretty happy with him, I was under a pretty tight deadline, and if truth be told I would like to have spent more time on him. But considering the time constraints I can’t complain too much.
A few days ago I had a game with my brother and we took a few videos. I have done my best to put these videos into a battle report. The video quality isn’t great, this was a test run and hopefully next time I will have a better camera!
