Chapter: Unsung Heroes

Chapter: Unsung Heroes

This is my chapter made for the Chapter Master competition held by GW in northern Europe. In the contest you create your own chapter, and I've decided to call mine "Unsung Heroes" (thanks DR for the idea ). Considering I have never played 40k and know nothing about the world I had to create a pretty "loose" story behing the chapter.
It's basically a very old chapter, thought to be wiped out in a fierce fight on a distant planet a long long time ago. A few members survived though and stayed loyal to the Emperor throughout the years, and they never gave up fighting for him. Left behind enemy lines there is no way to take proper care of the equipment, hence the rust and dirt on their armour.
Recently they were discovered by some friendly forces and brought to the Emperor's knowledge. They got the new name "Unsung Heroes" and are considered one of the most loyal chapters.

I had a lot of fun painting them, but had to rush it a bit at the end. I initially ment to convert them a bit and sculpt fire and plasma coming out of the guns, but there was unfortunately no time.
More and bigger pics can be found at my website. Hope you like them!

Very good paint job, and an excellent scheme. I'm not sure how much I like the background (its good, but a little too generic, and the name doesn't fit into 40k) but that isn't why I'm rating you 10.

Very hard to come up with a new chapter colour scheme that looks good, but this is both original and effective. Great stuff.
