Sentinels of Terra – A Pre Heresy Imperial Fists Force

image

For the past year I have been working on a project to build,  paint & play with a Horus Heresy Era force of Space Marines.

The Horus Heresy happened in the background during the 31st Millenium…10,000 years before the setting of Games Workshop’s Sci-Fi Game Warhammer 40,000. 30k, as it is often called still uses the current Warhammer 40k Core Rules but instead of a codex you have the Horus Heresy Books released by Forge World.

My force – The Sentinels of Terra – Imperial Fists:

image

I have chosen an army that would challenge my painting skills and that I would enjoy background-wise. The Imperial Fists Legion were called back to Terra to become the army defending Terra and the Imperial Palace,  I have set my army at the very end of the Heresy as they fall back to the gates of the Emperor’s Palace for the final stand.

This is the first of my Contemptor Dreadnoughts,  I will be adding another two to the list as a Talon.

I then chose to add a Legion Dreadnought talon to my force using a mix of the Venerable Dreadnought kit from Games Workshop and the Forge World MkIV Dreadnought kit.

This is my Tartarus Pattern Terminator Squad which will be getting a Spartan as Transport.
