A full tactical squad of 10. Just got to wait for glues and putties to dry before a clean up and then paint shop.


As for the severed head, not a clue, I found it in my bits box (recently stocked up from ebay bits.) It's got a new style space marine hand on it.

Wow!

What a collection! What consistent ingenuity! Absolutely loved looking through your work!

Missed the whole of your thread, having been awol for two years, but feeling gee’d up to get back into my own RT pile, whereupon I will certainly ‘pinch with pride’ a few ideas from what i’ve seem here.

Thanks, Max :)

Not made much progress of late. Just shot a bit of black and slapped a bit of red on more as a test of concept. I want the paint job on them to give the impression of spectres and not just black marines with fire painted on their armour. I'm after a glowing-ish red flame effect and mat light absorbing black armour. Still very much a wip.

That's absolutely incredible. I love them all!!
About the severed head, it's a new Daemonette. I believe it comes from the Grey Knights pack, but I would need to check.

He has really captured a weird glowing metal vibe.

Great conversions by the way

Thanks for the link, I've not sen that before. What an effect! I love it, what a great job he did and something to take a little inspiration from. :) I don't think I can achieve that look with my skill or paint ranges but hes nailed it!

Re: Crimson Fists Marines, Inquisition & Legion of the Damne

Slowly plodding along with these. Experimenting as I go.



As said before, my idea is of spectres rather than just half dead marines in flame painted armour. Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with that but A: I didn't fancy painting yet more neatly painted space marines and B: I like the idea of them being an enigma. With very few of them left and swiftly dying how do they keep appearing?! Also, despite the inquisition trying, a dead marine has never been recovered from the field of battle. I also liked the idea of the RTB1 armour mix for them as they were such an old lost chapter, it seemed right,(not just because I had some spare :) ) For those who don't know about them, they are supposedly the remnants of a chapter by the name of Fire Hawks;



I like this image, idea of them. Stuck in some place of reality / warp.
