Heresy Era Imperial Fists; Characters and Command

Hi All

Bluddtoof here with some more of my expanding Heresy Era Imperial Fists; this is quite possibly the most enjoyable army I've ever painted in my 30 years in the hobby. So much fun to do and I'm really pleased with the finish too, so win win for me!
This project was to get all the character models I had painted up, these 4 models were part of my stag do present from the code boys and include Alexis Pollux and Sigismund and the Imperial Fists Command set; a Praetor and Standard Bearer.
The models were all nice and easy to build, I didn't do much in the way of modification except to change the Praetors pistol out for a serpenta, mainly cos I like the look of it. The only issue I had was with Sigismund's sword which was very warped, lots of heating and shaping later and it's now almost straight but simply wouldn't flatten completely.
Pics of the finished models...

Pollux








Sigismund






Praetor






Standard Bearer






And a whole bunch of wip shots of them...

















Very pleased with these and the Legion is slowly growing.
Next up will be a Rapier Weapon Battery of 3 Quad Bolters and crew which will form my entry into "Stepping between games" "Squadruary" event.

C&C welcome as ever.

Bluddtoof.

    1. Cheers Bud. Pollux is my favourite. Sigismund was hard to work with. Should have painted the sword arm seperately.
