Imperial Fists 3rd Company

Welcome, Inquistor, to the battle barge of the 3rd Company of the Imperial Fists.

We are lead by Captain Agathon, Master of the Arsenal, Defender of the Hind Marches.  Armed with his trusty storm bolter, and an ancient lightning claw, he leads the third company to glory after glory!

Ancient Teucer, master of the lascannon also attends the 3rd company.  Teucer is one of the oldest dreadnaughts in the company and so sleeps between battles … though provides lethal support on the field.

The third company generally designate squads by the name of the sergeant., and this has rolled over to the attached forces of 10th (scout) company.

Squad Damocles is a small group of initiates being evaluated in the field for induction into the 3rd Company.  Sergeant Damocles runs a tight unit, dropping the wrath of the Imperial Fists on the heads of the Xenos and Heretics!

In the 3rd company, Squad Leto is famous for its defiant stand against the Tyranids on Beta Gamma 3, where the hive tyrant and elite guard were shattered against there yellow armour.  Sergeant Leto, then just a battle brother, was the only survivor, and is hoping to lead the new marines in the squad to glory.

Squad Leto (Tactical Squad with heavy bolter and plasma gun, sergeant with chainsword, bolt pistol, meltabombs – 185pts)

Squad Orion, on the other hand, is known for its work on the field against tanks.  Brother Philoctetes, the squads missile launcher, is on the verge of promotion to the veteran sternguard units for his calm fire under pressure.

Squad Achilles is aiming at promotion to the vanguard squads, with Patroclus, the team’s flamer operator, particularly prone to getting up close and personal!

Squad Achiles (Tactical Squad with Missile Launcher and flamer, sergeant with chainsword, bolt pistol, meltabombs – 185pts)

 As the Master of the Arsenal, Captain Agathon tends to deploy with the tank he sees as an icon of his own success, the predator Apollo.  Known for its success throughout the years in an anti-tank role, the venerable machine-spirit continues to destroy enemies of the Imperium in the 41st Millennium.

Predator Apollo (Twin links lascannon, lascannon sponsons – 165pts)

He also tends to call in air support, having learnt to his cost against the insurgents of Heaven Lost that air superiority can cost even Astartes, and the Stormtalon Artemis is normally assigned to his deployments in order to ensure that local control of the skies remains with the Imperial Fists.

Stormtalon Artemis (Twinlinked lascannon – 140pts)

This forms the standard deployment of the available 3rd Company forces in the Hind Marches (1498pts).

Finally, Captain Agathon always tries to ensure that there is a local fortification deployed by local support or the Chapter’s techmarines.  An Imperial Bastion with anti-air support offers a tremendous tactical advantage to the masters for the siege masters.

Imperial Bastion (with Icarus Lascannon – 110pts)

Of late, the third company snipers seem to be remarkably accurate, almost as if they are receiving assistance from a ghostly force.  Investigations into the events are ongoing.

Autarch of Craftworld Alaitoc (Scorpion chainsword, mandiblasters – 83 pts)

Striking Scorpions of the Alaitoc Ascendent Shrine (Exarch – 95pts)

The Eldar craftworlds awaken!

Well, this weekend I hope to find the time to sort out my Eldar forces in line with the new Codex (and/or Iyanden supplement). According to the old codex, I have around 5000pts of painted Eldar – I honestly have no idea how many more unpainted Eldar I have, but I’d suspect at least that again! (especially as I have all the phoenix lords except Karandras unpainted!)

I intend to sort out several ready to go forces in line with my current strategy (and take into account the various colours my forces are painted in, which do somewhat vary! Most are painted in blue and yellow – matching Iyanden and Alaitoc colours.  That actually includes the aspect warriors too!  However, I do have a fair few in the red and white of saim-hann, and some more traditional aspect warriors.

My thinking is currently to try to put together a predominantly wraith-based force for Iyanden, using the supplement, a mainly aspect warrior based force for Alaitoc, and a mixed force for Saim-hann, but I’ll need to see which models I have available.  They really won’t be optimised forces, but should look very pretty! 🙂
