Army of Imperial Fists

I've had this army painted for quite a while, now, but never took the time to show it up here. I'm even considering selling it as part of my 40k-cutback policy.

SAM_7021


SAM_7022


SAM_7023


SAM_7024


SAM_7025


SAM_7026


The Dreadnought is magnetized, as I usually do, so both arms have multiple weapon choices.

SAM_7027


SAM_7035


Special weapons:

SAM_7031



Tactical marines:

SAM_7032


SAM_7033


SAM_7034



Scouts:
SAM_7036


SAM_7037


SAM_7039


The army includes many HQ's, such as the Masters of the Chapter, a Lybrarian, Lysander and a converted Chapter Master.

SAM_7040


SAM_7041


SAM_7042


SAM_7043


SAM_7044


SAM_7045


SAM_7047


SAM_7049


SAM_7050


The Stormtalon is also magnetized, so all weapon options are available for it.

SAM_7053


Anyway, this is such a beautiful army, I'm probably going to keep it, but hobby space is really becoming an issue for me, given the amount of miniatures I already have, and my project of collecting several napoleonic armies. I'm definitely going to need more shelves very soon...

French Artillery

More Napoleonics painted. Here we have 2 artillery sets, both from Italeri. One of Imperial Guard Artillery and one of regular army horse Artillery.

SAM_6982


SAM_6983


The kits are very good, one of my only complaints is the lack of one of the horsemen on the carriage. There are only 2 on the sprue, while the carriages usually travelled with one horseman on each left horse. 

Let's assume the poor bastard has just been shot and there is no one available to replace him.

SAM_6984


SAM_6985


SAM_6986


Another issue to mention is the shortage of models to man the cannons on the horse artillery kit: only 5 for 2 guns. The Imperial Guard Artillery is far plentier on that regard, with 4 models for each of their 4 guns.

SAM_6987


SAM_6988




SAM_6989


SAM_6990


SAM_6991


SAM_6992


SAM_6993


I just realised I forgot to paint the details on the guards' bearskins. Will get to it tonight.
