Quasi resurrecting the blog as I'm doing some Astral Claws/Tyrant's Legion work at the moment.
I love the small scale of Shadow Wars and I figured with the Chaos Space Marine warband I could make a pretty nifty Tyrant's Legion amalgam.
Any way, I give you some pics of the WiP boys.
So there is the group photo, we have 5 Astartes and 4 Auxilia Inductees.
I have edited the GW CSM killteam into a Tyrant's Legion one, including changing fluff, marks etc, you'll find it here, so let me know what you think!
Anyway, some more in depths pics, first up here is a pic of the 4 Auxilia Inductees
On the left we have some well...'volunteers'... I wanted the guy on the far left to look like he is running from something, as he really doesn't want to be fighting, I've also put him in quite plain clothes to account for being a citizen, the green stuff is an arm band that will be blue with the Tyrant's Claw on it. The guy on the middle-left is just an old dude that has been given a big ole blade and old school shield so he can at least maybe shiv an unsuspecting victim haha...
Next up the power houses, we have.
I realise I said less rage-chargey, but there always has to be one, wanted this guy to look like he is really swinging that heavy arse chain sword at some people, logically he would have the NCI: Retaliator Cohort.
This is my first specialist, I thought it would be cool to have him slung the flamer and to be firing at range with his pistol. The little arm shield is just to look cool, but could represent him being a Scion of Valthex, for the 5+ invuln and upgrade the bolt pistol to 'kraken' bolts later on ;). Sculpting marine hand is super hard, not as good as what some of the amazing people out there can do, but should be serviceable!
Finally a line up so you can see scale. I've obviously done plent of true scale Astartes before, but never a termy and I am super happy with the size of him. A lot of true scale termies are 'extened' normal terminators so they are a bit taller, but logically terminators shouldn't be too much taller than a normal marine, as they are/should still be the same size inside, but they should be crazily more imposing and I think this guy does the trick!
Any way, going to get them undercoated and what not tonight, will try and put some updates up soon on where they are heading.
Let me know what you think of the models as well as the Tyrant's Legion list and see if I need to change any fluff.
