Hello all, since my last post progress has been slow due to a combination of work and Dawn of War II. However Squad Santos (Devastators) is almost complete now, they just require basing and then they can take their place in my Crimson Fists army.
Also my Praetorians are slowly building up. Currently I have a 2 squad Platoon completed, with another Platoon and the Command Platoon to be painted.
I have also been expanding the armies. For the Crimson Fists I have a Command Squad, Pedro Kantor and Captain Cortez to be built and painted. The Praetorians have another Lt to lead 2nd Platoon, and also a Standard Bearer and Musician/Vox-Caster for the Command Platoon.
In a similar vein, I was browsing eBay looking for any Crimson/Imperial Fists shoulder pads to possibly upgrade my models with, when I stumbled across several auctions for some Imperial Fists squads. These were very nicely painted and having added the prices up, I am now the new owner of a Imperial Fist Captain and his Command Squad, 2 Tactical Squads and Assault Squad. I am planning to use these as allies for my Crimson Fists and Praetorians. The background behind my armies puts them working together as part of the Imperial effort to cleanse the Loki Sector following WAAAGH! Snagrod and the Rynn's World Incident. The Imperial Fists can be explained away by having them being sent to help the Crimson Fists to build themselves back to Chapter strength.
Photos of all of these will be coming as soon as I get myself a decent camera.
