“We are surrounded, Brother-Captain,” said Lieutenant Alehoc, gesturing at the frothing sea of greenskins around their position. Captain Grimstone nodded curtly.
“Excellent, that means we can launch the counter-attack in any direction, as the old proverb says.”
Alehoc grinned, then began issuing orders.
“Forward brothers! Show these xenos what it means to face the Crimson Fists! Remember Rynn’s World!“
The fourth company surged forward, bellowing their new battle cry.
“Remember Rynn’s World! No more last stands!”
Here we are then. Three and a half years after starting this project Captain Grimstone and the Crimson Fists fourth company are now at 60 Power Level and submitted for my first ever entry to the ‘Armies on Parade’ competition. I call this entry “No More Last Stands!”.
I’m very pleased with how this project has turned out. The display board was made from a picture frame with a hill built up from layers of foam card and putty. I deliberately selected quite a compact display board as I’ve found it easier to photograph LED models when they are close together, although getting these photos took over an hour! The other factor that made me want a compact board was so it would fit in my display cabinet once it was done.
The impression I wanted to create was of the hill from the iconic Rogue Trader cover art, only this time the Crimson Fists weren’t making a last stand, but breaking out and surging forward in their new Primaris forms. Basing the board around a hill also made it easier to display the models in a compact space without them obscuring each other too much.
Don’t forget, if you’d like to have a go at LED miniatures yourself then I have my tutorials here and FAQ here. I now also have handy lists of suggested tools and consumables for anyone who is just getting into miniature electronics, which can be found here.
There are various debris scattered around the battlefield, including ork and human skulls, and some original RTB01 Space Marine helmets that I had in my bits box.
That’s all for today. Do check back in the future for even more Crimson Fists, as well as various other side projects. Don’t forget you can keep up with my latest work on Instagram and Twitter.
