Hello folks!  I figured it was about time that I post pics of my World Eaters-in-progress.  

 

I found inspiration across the interwebz in other hobbyists' takes on the XIIth.  But my main inspiration was this artwork from Betrayal. Although there were many things I liked about it, I was particularly drawn to the darker blue, and how the simple lines of Maximus armor seemed to fit the World Eaters' utilitarian nature (at least how I envisioned them).

I can talk more about my thinking and creative approach as we go along.  But to start things off, here are pics of some of my tacticals!

I've always loved that piece of Artwork...I to, have a utilitarian view of the WE's no fuss or decoration. I like that Shabran Dhar character who is a brutal loyalist who decapitates it enemies and sticks them on Spikes - I'm so Loyal, I'll take you all on - What a Beast....

 

ISTVAAN III does give some excellent Legion vs Own Legion opportunities, it's one of the reasons I love RAGLANS War Hounds because they can be either.

Thanks for all the kind words, folks!  

 

@mwnciboo -- I'm trying to keep them from looking TOO chaotic, so that they can be believable if I want to run them as loyalists.  All the fun (and cool rules) are on the traitor side, of course...

 

Tactical squads and Rhinos go together like peanut butter and jelly, so here are a pair of transports.  I did add some spikes just so they have a place to put their trophies.   :)

Thanks guys!

 

Here are pics of some of my jetbikes.  I have six in all.  I really like the speed and shooting they bring to the table.  Plus I can use them to assault in a pinch.

Those are some great looking World Eaters - you've done a great job on that scheme. Brilliant looking army.

As should be obvious, I'm a sucker for Jetbikes, and these are just fantastic!
