Imperial Space Marine: Imperial Fist

Good evening blog followers and welcome to another re-visioning of a iconic model to a Legion specific character. 

For many who follow us here you're well aware of our passion for the Hobby and our love for all things Heresy and Legion. When the re-vamped release of the 2016Imperial  Space Marine model came out I knew I had to have one and had to find some way of fitting it into my army. 

I've decided to use him to represent a Veteran it Vet Sgt from a Tactical squad. 

For those of you who can remember far enough back like me *ahem-cough* showing my age now! Then you will we'll remember the original marine as depicted in the rear of the box. 

You can see on the lower right hand side the metal figure the new plastic has been modelled after. It was an icon of its age and to this day represents a golden age in miniatures from GW. 

So the I present to you my take on the Imperial Fist Legion version. I hope you like him!

I think the addition of a FW MK VI shoulder pad really makes it stand out.
The Lamenters yellow glaze really makes the yellow mix I use for my armour 'pop' and I have to say it was a real joy to paint. 

I tried to keep the scheme simple to allow the model to show off its potential. The Crimson Fist variant on the box is very similar in its minimal approach to the colour scheme but the detail on the mini would easily lend itself to a more intricate use of colour for certain areas of the armour. 

For me it truly represents a set of Articifer armour. 

Anyway I hope you all enjoy feel free to comment and ask questions below. 

As always 'For the Emperor!'
