Eye candy time! I got a good number of pictures taken today and I want to do an article on each of my armies. Basically this will just be a bunch of eye candy for you. As I add units, I may come back and add pictures, giving me a place readers can view my stuff.
The Crimson Fists
This is my current painted Crimson Fist Army. This project started in 2004 at the Minneapolis GT. I was not happy with my armies at the time and wanted to paint something to a higher standard. I knew at that time, I could not paint shoulders and vehicle emblems freehand.
|Yeah, I'm a dork and still have my passes for the 2003-2004 GT.|
I decided on CF since they were some of the first metal shoulder pads and Forge World doors made. I could paint raised surfaces pretty good and the colors were different from my Salamanders and Sister's of Battle. I collected all the shoulders I could and a bunch of the tactical metal shoulders too.
Fast forward to 2010. After coming back to 40k after a 4th edition "break", I wanted a project to paint. I found podcasts relaxing to paint to and blogs were cool too. 2 projects was born from that moment in time, my Crimson Fists and 2 Cents on 40k. My blog was started to post pictures of stuff I was working on and to motivate me to paint up a new army.
|5th edition drew me back in. Love it!|
My Fists were to be my tournament army. The one that would score well enough to give me a chance to win a GT or a RTT. An army, I would be proud of to display and get some ogling over.
So in June I finished my first 1850 points worth of Fists. Now I can easily field 2500-3000 points with more still being planned and painted. So here they are in one place for all to see.........
