Well here is an tie-in to Red’s last post, though from the pic above you can tell I don’t have the transfers printed out quite yet. I think this army should be a lot of fun.

For those of you who don’t know about the Lamenters, they are a cursed founding chapter who use the gene-seed of Sanguinius with the Black Rage bred out. The downside being they have genetically bad luck. Examples of this include them accidentally siding with Huron during the Badab Uprising, and then for penance being sent into the mouth of Hivefleet Kraken. Barely three companies of Lamenters live in the galaxy now. I’m using the new foundations and washes to create the yellow for my armour. The recipe is this;

1.White spray undercoat
2.Tau Sept Ochre
3.Devlan Mud Wash
4. Iyanden Darksun
5.Highlight Golden Yellow
6.Highlight Sunburst Yellow

So far the checkers have been really fun to paint and I’ve also added them on place like kneepads and jump pack jets.

Here is the list I am making-

Captain Roderic w/ Bolter, Power Fist, Hellfire Rounds 135
Librarian Jordanes w/ Avenger, Gate of Infinity 100

8*Sternguard w/ 2*Combi-plasmas 210

~Is it getting obvious what Bigred’s big mystery is yet? What does everyone think of my first unit? Any ideas on basing?~
