Some more pick-chars:

First up is all-of-my-AdMech-so-far:
Image
I'm pretty pleased with how they look on the table! I've got another 10 skitarii and an enginseer coming in the mail, then they may take a break as I have a cool idea for a bit more terrain to round my table out, plus I want to get a few more marines so I can phase out scouts and try fielding bigger squads of inceptors, but that's another kettle of fish, as they say.

Next is some not-so-well-lit shots of my 1500-point army for NagoyaHammer this year, if anyone wants to start building lists expressly to beat me. :D

The core is a Battalion (cue Prim frothing about inappropriate uses of military terminology :lol: ) of Scythes: Captain, Lieutenant, 2 squads of Intercessors and one of Scouts, a Redemptor and an Ironclad.
Image
Intercessors are always solid, the Scouts are a cheap screening unit, and while the Captain and Dreads will have to foot-slog it across the board to punch the enemy, they're all three pretty dang tough and once they get there they'll be good at the punching.

Next is a Patrol of Gryphonne IV Remnants: Domina, a squad of Rangers with sniper rifles, a squad of Vanguards with no special weapons (basically because I had the points to spare) and a Dunecrawler with neutron laser.
Image
The Dunecrawler is really the star of the show here, the army's main source of AT punch, although if the Rangers can stay alive their powerful sniper rifles are very scary, and the Vanguards put out a surprising number of hit dice with a surprising threat range.

And finally is a little Inquisitorial Vanguard: the Inquisitor and 3 one- or two-man Acolyte units (and a Daemonhost lurking in the warp to get summoned), riding in a Razorback "borrowed" from the Scouts (the RB is technically part of the Marine detachment, but Inquisitors can commandeer transports like this).
Image
This formation is included 100% for fun / fluff reasons, and because I don't have a psyker for my Marines. The Razorback is basically an Inquisitor / Daemonhost delivery device (that it provides a bit of AT punch, and allows the 4 units that make the formation up to deploy in one drop, is a welcome benny), and the Acolytes are ablative wounds for the Inquisitor with their "look out, sir!" type rule. We need to proxy the lasguns as an unusual pattern of hotshot lasgun 'cause the Acolyte wargear lists are limited like that - I probably should just get some Scions, and in fact may if cash flow allows me to do so before NagoyaHammer.

There's nothing really flashy in the list, but it has a solid core of troops and (hopefully) enough tough, dangerous vehicles to force some target selection on my opponent's part. It brings 9 CP, and the Warlord is the Domina with the "get CP back" warlord trait, so I shouldn't be hurting there, and is fully FAQ compliant. Its big weakness is probably that it's a bit weak on anti-tank - I'm leaving the Predator out to punish it for failing to kill anything in any game I've brought it along in yet (and because I just couldn't fit it in and still have enough warm bodies / CP to be competitive). But it should be fun and it'd be a shame to waste all this cool background info I wrote up about it!

This is a bit of a pic dump, so I'll put 'em here instead of in the "today" thread.

I finished up the Space Marine Heroes season 3 set today, so here they all are (along with my translation of their quote on the little card that comes with them in the set):

Image
Plague Champion Gangrous: "Just as our Primarch Mortarion was granted daemonhood, so too shall I attain immortality!"
Image
Krottikus with the Icon of Despair: "Kneel before your true master. Or choose death, I care not."
Image
Scabus with his Flail of Corruption: "I give to you the blessing of the almighty Nurgle!"
Image
Korelath ("Death to the false emperor! Praise the lord of contagion!") and Morrslag ("Your rotten, melted flesh is our holy water."), the latter with a Plague Spewer
Image
Garg the Abominable: "None have seen this boltgun and lived to tell the tale."

And the whole gang:
Image

And the whole gang as I'll probably field them as a 100-point kill team, with Garg (whose model I don't care for, and whose pithy quote leaves a lot to be desired to boot) swapped out for a bunch of poxwalkers:
Image

And my traditional fluff bomb:
Perhaps the plague marine warband that styles themselves the Dusk Raiders are actually Death Guard of Terran stock who sided with Mortation during the Heresy, now reclaiming their heritage with the splintering of the legion. Perhaps they are instead of Barbarus or later ancestry, adopting the heraldry of the Dusk Raiders to mock or out of twisted irony. Or perhaps they are renegades from a later age who turned to Nurgle, discovered the history of the XIV Legion and seek to emulate it. In the end, of course, the so-called Dusk Raiders are a tiny warband in a massive galaxy torn with strife, a glimmer of an ancient history that has passed, for most, into legend, so questions concerning their ties to the past are both unasked and unanswered.

Great work. The colour scheme really pops and makes a change from the standard pattern.

As for Garg's pithy quote, I guess his teammates walk around with their eyes closed a lot?

I'm imagining a lot of "geez, not this again" sighs and pointed aversion of gazes whenever he gets on a roll.

偽りの星亭に死を。Itsuwari no hoshitei ni shi wo. I figured “false emperor” was cooler than the literal “false star emperor,” heh.

Thanks to you both for your comments too! I’m really pleased with this little group.
