Amra the Lion

This is Amra, First Captain of the Executioners. I posted his background here, and this is his finished model. I went for gold armor with him, mostly so that he would stand out given that he's a fairly standard model. I also used a slightly brighter gold for his helmet. It doesn't really stand out, but I think it's a subtle way to draw attention to the model's face. The storm shield is from a Fantasy Warrior of Chaos with the chaos symbols shaved off, and the axe is my standard pattern with a skull modeled onto the shaft.

Background: Amra the Lion, Captain of the First Company

Brother-Captain Amra has lead the Executioners’ First Company for over two hundred years, having earned his rank by defeating all other claimants following the death of the previous Captain, Sergius. Amra is a massive warrior, even when not wearing his Tactical Dreadnought armor and his skill in close-combat is unparalleled within the Chapter. There are few that doubt that Amra would be High Executioner were he to challenge for the role.

However, Amra has no desire to claim that mantle, and readily praises Tytos Solomon for his skillful command of the Chapter. Amra is more than content to lead the First Company to earn greater and greater honors on the field of battle. In addition to being a juggernaut in his own right, Amra drills his warriors continually, and the First Company displays marksmanship beyond that of even other veteran Astartes. Amra was given the title “the Lion” by Thulsa Kane, who likened Amra’s stubborn hunting of enemy champions to the dominance displays of the extinct lions of Terra.

Vampire Lord Valkar Ejszaka

I'm slowly trying to turn my collection of undead into a viable 2,500 point Vampire Counts army so I can get back into Fantasy. I blame Ben and Tom, hosts of Bull City Wargaming, for reigniting my interest in Fantasy. Check it out if you haven't yet. They cover a variety of games, but they do seem to have a Fantasy bias.

Executioners Terminator Squad Cormac

Here's my latest addition to the Executioners, and an integral part of the 1,850 point list I'm planning. They really demonstrate the brutal, moody look I've been going with for my Executioners, and I think they're my favorite squad yet.

Background: Executioners Wargear

A man that treats his tools well will get good service from them in turn.

-Thulsa Kane

The bulk of the Executioners hail from the barbaric world of Aquilon. No matter what tribe they belonged to, they are taught early on that a dull blade or rusted armor can mean death. This belief has been thoroughly adopted by the Executioners Chapter, and each marine is expected to maintain, and often improve, his own equipment. The Chapter possesses the prescribed number of Techmarines, but they concern themselves primarily with maintaining the large number of tanks used by the Chapter. In addition, they also create and maintain the more esoteric equipment used by the Executioners, including the older marks of power armor preferred by many of the Chapter’s veterans.

Commission: Ultramarines Tacticals

Here's the next set of Ultramarine Tactical Marines. I don't have much to say about them, as I've been painting a bunch of them.

Product Review: Wargames Factory Heavy Weapons Teams

Progressing on my plan to build a detachment of Armageddon Steel Legion, I picked up a box of the Wargames Factory Heavy Weapon teams. The kit comes with enough models to build 3 teams, as well as two commander models. Weapon options include a laser cannon, missile launcher, mortar, and heavy machine guns. I assembled mine as heavy machine guns, which I'll be using as autocannons.

Commission: Ultramarines Tacticals

Here's the latest batch of Ultramarines Tactical Marines. These are the first models that I've assembled personally, which makes a difference because I prefer to paint the bolters separately from the rest of the model so I can get to the details on the chest.

6th Edition Descent of Angels Lists

Based on the ideas of the previous two posts, I've put together a couple lists that should work well. I haven't play tested these lists; they're hypothetical lists that I will be building and hope to test in the near future. Until they're built, I' be concentrating on playing the Executioners.
