Imperial Fists project

Post by Omenos on Thu Mar 14, 2013 7:48 am

Hi guys,

Kinda let slip in Rivans Salamanders thread that I've recently made some Forge World purchases too. Kinda got some heresy era stuff in there (as it looks awesome) and some standard GW (as my wallet wouldn't like me anymore otherwise)...

List o' Kits:

Land Raider MkIIB x2
Land Raider MkIIB Redeemer* x1
Cataphratcii Legion Kit (power fists) x1
- 8 Additional Cataphratcii Thunder Hammers (2 spares)
- 10 SM Terminator Sergeant Storm Shields (2 spares)
- 4 cyclone missile launchers
Lysander x1
SM Tactical Squad x4
SM Devastator Squad x2
Crimson Fist Command Upgrade Kit x2
Crimson Fist Shoulder Upgrade Kit x4
Crimson Fist Tank Upgrade Kit x1
SM Sniper Scouts x1
Razorback x2
Stormtalon x2
Vindicator x2
Aegis Defense Line x1

*due to missing parts in the original order I made, I was sent replacement kits which left me with enough spares to make the Redeemer

I've been busy assembling some of these, will have to post up some pictures of assembled kits later. Looking forward to being able to play some Heresy Era games with these guys! Very Happy

It'll be just Imperial Fists, the shoulder pads etc are branded as crimson fists on the website but they are a perfect match for imperial fists as the only differences as far as I can tell are just the colours Smile

@Omenos: There's an awesome Imperial Fist army that had a lot of FW pieces I saw featured on GW's website. I believe it was a Japanese national who owned the army-- would be a great reference Smile

This is awesome that everyone is excited about pre-heresy forces. FW has done a nice job on some of the models.

That is a significant list of kits you have there Brother!!!! Your wallet lasted A LOT longer than mine would have Razz

I think that if I were to collect pre-heresy, I would go for a Raven Guard force personally.

@Aubec: I might have a solution to that problem. Store manager at my local GW recommended using the cassandora yellow shade over white. I wasn't particularly convinced until he did a quick demo... Will save me a significant amount of time and effort. Will have to show you guys when i get ar. nd to painting ^^

@Rivan: Yeah, i saw that army, it looks pretty damn sweet Very Happy

@Constantine: Yeah, I got a bonus this year which added a bit more to my budget. It allowed me to get the shiny FW kits. I chose Imp Fists because I like the idea of playing an army specialised in siege warfare... Perfect excuse for me to invest in my heavy support options (mmm, vindicators Twisted Evil )

I like that you have chosen the Imperial fists and that you are going to base your build on their strength/specialty Twisted Evil

I always have liked the look of imperial fists, nice models. Would love to see ongoing pics of the project.
