Proof of concept for an upcoming Terran Raven Guard army.
Dark of heart and pale of skin these brutal warriors ensured complete and lasting compliance on any planet they conquered, as was the way of the Xeric tribes of Terra they were recruited from. When Corax joined the XIX he found their methods all to similar to those of the slavers he had overthrown, and exiled them to the outer reaches of known space.
Pictured here is Legionary Kral in his customized suit of mkII "Crusade" pattern power armor, with an axe typical of the Xeric tribes of his birth.
With lots of knowledge and tips picked up from the YouTube channels of PLASMO and @marklinofsweden, plus the inspiration of @monstroys awesome dioramas, I decided to attempt something.
The plan is to make a display board for my 5-man hellblaster squad. Here I have started with a layout. This wood does not seem ideal for PVA glue, should probably have went with untreated plywood or maybe MDF, but this is what I had available.
Somehow these guys missed their shout out before the big army reveal... so today I'm showing the Custode Wardens with axes and Vexilla.
I'm thinking a cool name for these guys would be something like "Wardens of the Rose".
