Heresy Era Imperial Fists - Tartaros Terminators begin!

Quick hit today - Nearing the finish line on the next batch of Acolytes, but I couldn't help but take a quick detour and lay in the initial yellows on the squad of Tartaros Terminators for the Imperial Fists over the last couple sessions!


While the Imperial Fists are one of a bare handful to get access to proper assault cannons in the Heresy, from an aesthetic standpoint I went plasma for this unit (the blue coils should set off nicely against the yellow) with a pair of plasma blasters and a scattering of combi-plasma guns. Overall I still prefer the look of the Cataphractii plate but these models were quite fun to build!

Finally! Someone's gotta keep those filthy xenos in check -_-

The Sergeant torso and ask the gorgets are simply fantastic parts. The yellow will look great en masse. Will you be using black on them as well?

Two projects at once ? Dangerous ground...

I LOVE the Tartaros armour design! Looks so good in your [patented] mustard yellow. Are these from the Prospero boxed set or FW?

We both love Thousand Sons and Imperial Fists in 30K? So very alike then.

I think I missed how you did them first time around...

@Zab: Hah! There's been a lot of xenos filth of late!

@Frothing Muppet: Indeed! Looking to find the appropriate areas for accent panels. I'm intending a 5-man unit of Cataphractii which will be predominantly black with yellow accents as a contrasting unit.

@Zzzzzz: Hah, I wish it was just two projects. At last count there's six. Bad idea! :)

@Dai: Thanks! These are the Prospero box plastics, and went together like a dream!

@Rory Priest: Indeed! I'd done a medium-sized force in early 2015, it was probably time to revisit 'em, right?

Cheers, everyone!

Look awesome so far :)

They look amaze balls! That's a fantastic yellow. These are for heresy right?

Mordian7th said...

@NafNaf: Thanks man!

@Col. Hertford: Cheers! Indeed, back on the heresy kick with these!

Oh! Very nice. You have a talent for yellow, my friend. (that sounded better in my head)

I was waffling between this and Pre-H Death Guard for my Prospero box.

@#2501: Thanks man! I was in the same boat on the DG vs IF scheme, the Mk.III armor really lends itself well to either force!
