Here are some pictures of my Crimson Fists. In 2009-2010, I painted this army for the Tale of 40k Painters thread on Warseer. If you're interested in the methods used to paint this army, head over to the Mek Shop and check out the full project log. It details the progress of this army over the course of a year.

HQ Units

Pedro Cantor

This is one of my favorite models in the Space Marine line. He's got enough 'bling' on him to make him look the part of a Chapter Master, but so much as to be ridiculous.

Oh, I also used the original spelling of his name from back in the day.

Chaplain with Jump Pack

Another model with a lot of character. Chaplains with jump packs were all the rage in previous editions of the Space Marine Codex. Nowadays, not so much, but he still looks cool.

 
Elites

Venerable Dreadnought Orion

Ah, I love painting dreadnoughts and this guy was a real pleasure. I'm particularly proud of the freehand banner.

Sternguard Veterans

Very cool models, but a pain in the butt to paint. All the fiddly bits and the areas to paint the chapter iconography are really small. Aside from the painting woes, I like how these guys perform on the table. The different ammo types are great and they're pretty decent in an assault, especially when you have Pedro around.

Terminators

Gotta love the Terminators. I was thinking of doing Assault Terminators, with Thunder Hammers and Storm Shields, but decided against it. These guys are the Crimson Fists after all, it seemed just wrong for the models not to have powerfists.

 
Troops

Tactical Squad 1

The Tactical Squad is the bread and butter of any standard Space Marine army. You need these guys to hold the ground gained by your other 'flashy' units. They don't excel in any one area, but can do any job reasonably well.

Tactical Squad 2

Another of the bread and butter units.

Scouts with Sniper Rifles

I love the look of these guys, but don't expect much in the way of killing power. Their job is to camp on objectives and keep out of sight.

 
Transport Vehicles

Rhino

The ubiquitous armored box to get your Tactical Squads where they need to be.

Razorback

I usually load the Sternguard into the this thing, with Pedro Cantor going along for the ride.

 
Fast Attack

Landspeeder Tornado

Armed with a Multi-Melta and Heavy Flamer, this thing is perfect for use against their favored enemies, the Orks.

Assault Squad

Another unit painted up for how they look as opposed to any tactical effectiveness. The Chaplain joins these guys and are used to help bail out any unit that gets into rouble, or to mop up any stragglers.

 
Heavy Support

Vindicator

This thing is so ugly it's actually kinda cute! The pug-nosed brutal look of this tank matches it's battlefield role perfectly. Get in close and blow BIG holes in the enemy battleline. Subtle it's not.
 

Landraider

The big boy. There's something impressive (and somewhat intimidating) about dropping a model the size of a shoebox on the table. well... maybe not that big, but pretty damn close
