Managed to get these guys done in time for the 1st Legio Malaysia Army Throwdown which was held last Friday 18th. There were 11 others who managed to get their first troops choice done and I must say it was really nice to see a good turnout for the first throwdown. 11 beautifully painted troop choices. I'm happy to announce that this squad pulled it through for me and got voted as best painted for the night :). That's one notch for the Wildhost's Fists!! For the emperor and dorn!!!
I was having trouble figuring out how to put the 7th legion markings on the right shoulder pads. I wanted to have roman numerals of VII but the GW decals were impossible to put on and wasn't the correct size. I tried having '7' but its just didn't look nice. Until during a discussion with Jeff, he suggested using Sigismund's Black Templar cross to denote that they were from the 1st Chapter....brilliant idea!! I had already decided that Sigismund would the the preator for this army build so it just fits with the fluff.
Here's the sergeant with the templar cross on his right shoulder pads. I painted the inside half white and half yellow to denote him as the sergeant. Of course the red plumes also helps to easily identify him.
The worst looking fist of all haha. My heartiest thank yous and appreciation to everyone who voted for my Imperial Fists. You guys are the best. Onwards to the next throwdown!!
Breacher squad upfront and center!!! Death to the traitors!!!!!
