As part of the Ordo Xenos task force responsible for bringing the Thorn Moons into compliance, an outlandish but time-honored regiment has made planetfall.
The Inkerthean Pikemen hail from the Nephilim Sector, and it’s men recruited from a number of compliant systems therein. Most of these regiments have history dating back to the Great Crusade, and are using arcane weapons. The units operating in the Crataegus campaign especially tend to use esoteric arc-spears, which require the warriors to have physical contact to the planet’s surface and their weapons. If that connection gets broken, the lethal energies released will wreak havoc on the weapon’s user. This means no shoes, no gloves, and is a gruelling task for an ordinary man.
What fun to paint, and start growing an army out of the force! Painting ten miniatures at once was a challenge though, but seeing them all together definitely makes it worthwhile.
This might also serve as inspiration for the Invitational, since the subject matter is similar. This isn’t my entry though, just a warmup! On Tuesday it will be one week until the first deadline, and we will share where to start submitting entries.
