So just as I hoped, my package from the War Store came in yesterday during work! As soon as I got off, I rushed home to get some work done, and I have to say, I’m really happy with the results so far.
The Loyalist Marine look gives them the Sabotage sneaky look I wanted, while the Chaos Marine bitz tie into the rest of the army. Its hard to see here, but he’s mounted on pieces of cork painted to resemble a broken Highway. I’ve gotten the other two bases built and primed.
There’s two squads of 4 Bikers, and then a Champion on Bike, so I’ll be able to improve and tweak the bases as I go along.
Fluffwise, I was thinking of a planet called Vega Prime. A metropolis of technology and advancement, Vega Prime flourished under Imperial Rule and a mysterious Adeptus Mechanicus Magos. When the planet’s population suddenly began to riot and rebel against Imperial Rule, the Crimson Fists 5th Company was called in to quell the rebellion.
However, when they arrived, they were immediately attacked by Alpha Legion and Khornate forces. Forced into a tight spot, the Crimson Fists were forced to fight on their back foot for several years, and, coupled with large casualties, were finally encouraged to give up the planet which, after the war, was nearly destroyed.
As for the Bikers:
Chaos Bikers harried Crimson Fist positions many times during the war. Drop zones, emplacements, and heavily armoured vehicles were no match for the Legion’s hit-and-run tactics. The Bikers were also a telltale sign for a Daemonic Incursion of both Lesser and Greater Daemons.
I hope that sounds like decent fluff, I don’t usually go into that much detail on things like that. As for the Adeptus Mechanicus Magos, him and his team are going to be Obliterators. Man, I hate the metal models, so we’ll be starting with this:
“So, who is he going to be?” you say? Here’s a hint:
Stay tuned folks for more updates!
Also, I’m in talks with a gentleman about a Space Wolves commission. For the Wolftime!
