Crimson Fist: 1st Sternguard Squad

The unit that started this whole project. This was the first squad I painted up in the CF colors. The unit sat around doing nothing for a long time, after a while I did get around to building up a few of the models with weapons and gears. After a while I got busy elsewhere, now that the project is in full swing I have come back to this unit and finished it off finally. Armed with new Forgeworld bolters for a better sternguard look. They also have some modified markers to show they are different from the rank marines, two fist painted red, also infantry markers in silver instead of red, as well as different chapter insignia. I've been told that GW no longer makes these kinds of fist shoulder pads, and I have a few more, so I might add few more veterans in the future, for now 5 is enough. Enjoy the modified motion detector I put on the heavy bolter.

Crimson Fist: Captain Alessio Cortez

Captain Cortez is the leader of the Crimson Fist 4th Company. He is known as the Master of the Charge, and besides Pedro is the only other CF character with his own model. I picked this model up a long time ago when I began collecting pieces for my Crimson Fist army. While it is known to be the most notorious model ever made by GW, it's still CF history. I liked the character in Rynn's World, and like his background. So for now he is my army leader, a basic captain with a few upgrades.

Enjoy! :)

Update: Crimson Fist Transports

A small update on some of the things I'm grinding away on for my Crimson Fist army. Now that a few units are finished, it's time to bring out the transport options for them. I wanted to give my transports the bulky full armored look, so here are two Rhino chasies that will work as either Rhinos or Razorbacks for various units. The pieces worked out fairly well, but the armor kits is perhaps the most annoying kit I have ever had to work with from the FW Line, I still have a little bit of greenstuff work to do on the doors.
