Well in a rare feat of posting on a Saturday, this past week has been a busy one for me with this side project. Base coating was the word of the week as I worked fast to get some primer on the AoBR models and get a good base coat of Regal Blue to begin the Crimson Fist transformation. I also dug up my abandoned Sternguard and Scouts to join in the fun. This weekend will be a busy one for me as I attempt to finish a few of these units.....Enjoy the WIP Pics!

Well this year is the 25th Anniversary of 40K, and they have announced that the special model for this event is a Crimson Fist model. This has caught my eye, and I have already placed one on order of course. How could I not, after all this site is inspired by the Crimson Fist space marine chapter and Rynnsguard forces. Well this weekend I found out that for this event my local GW bunker has set a challenge of painting an entire Black Reach marine set in the colors of the Crimson Fist. Well I went halves on a box of AoBR and I took the marines while a friend of mine took the Orks. We both have 2 weeks to paint up the contents of the box. I figured this would be a great jump off point for my CF army. Yes last year I began working on some scouts but since the Grey Knights project took up a lot of my time I had little time for them. I am about the be done with GKs for a little while, so I want to move onto my CF army finally. Well here's what I got to get done in 2 weeks.....
10 Tac Marines
I also have the option of adding the special 25th Anniversary model to the force and Pedro Kantor, both of which I have. I also plan on revising an old Vet Squad and finishing my 2 Scout Squads.....So here we go!
