Archamus, Paretorian of Dorn, Master of Huscarls

Archamus, “The Last of the First”


Archamus could feel himself calling out orders, slicing the crisis up into portions, ringing each with the logic and experience of sixteen decades, reducing disaster to grains of action.

Huscarls of Dorn

“Archamus knew each of them, recognised them even through the layers of
Indomitus-pattern plate and the blur of his failing sight. They were his brothers, The Huscarls of whom he was master.”

Yes brothers! Huscarls of Dorn were clad in early version of Horus Heresy era Indomitus-pattern terminator armour! This might be a quite surprise for many of us but hey, it is all there, written by John French in 400 pages HH novel “Praetorian of Dorn“.

Imperial Fists Challenge: Alpha Legion

Imperial Fists do not stay idle after victory over Iron Warriors! It is time to defeat another enemy of the Emperor. Kill Alpharius!

“Dorn rammed the spear through his brother`s chest. The tip punched through the power plant on the back of Alpharius` armour. Alpharius mouth opened, his eyes wide. A great wash of blood poured from between his teeth. Dorn held him on the spear, the two so close that is seemed almost an embrace.”

Genesis of the Imperial Fists rituals. Why the fist is black?

Did you ever wonder why the fist is black?

One might be surprised with description down below. The pinnacle of human civilisation, the most trusted soldiers of Emperor practice such barbaric custom? Yes. Imperial Fists burn their clenched fists in fire, scorch them to the black burned piece of meat and then wait for it to regenerate while making an oath of loyalty to the Primarch.   Continue reading

A Brotherhood United

In the millennia since the Horus Heresy, dozens of Space Marine Chapters have been founded from the gene-seed of the imperial Fists, perhaps more than from any other Legion other than Ultramarines. Many of these Successor Chapters – the Crimson Fists, the Black Templars, the Executioners, the Hammers of Dorn and the Iron Knights foremost amongst them – have long and illustrious histories that are steeped in nearly as much glory and honour as the Imperial Fists themselves. Even those successors who were founded relatively recently – such as the Iron Fists, the Invaders and the Hammers of Dorn –  have already amasses a wealth of battle-honours to rival those of the most ancient Chapters, proudly upholding the legacy of their revered Primarch. Together the manifold ranks of the sons of Rogal Dorn have been instrumental in holding together the Imperium through the very bleakest of times. Continue reading

Hammers of Dorn

The Hammers of Dorn are a Codex Astartes-compliant Space Marine Chapter raised from the gene-seed of Rogal Dorn as a Successor Chapter of the Imperial Fists during an unknown Founding.

Yes! I am starting next army!

With Phall Conflict slowly going to be finished next month I am looking forward to start a new project. This time without yellow! I did manage to paint whole 3000 points 30k Imperial Fists army in just 3 months and to be honest I can not stand yellow anymore. I did try to reduce amount of yellow as much as I could painting Veterans with black pattern but still, having 9 tanks and 40 infantry did make me cry sometimes!
I was going to stay with 30k army and sell all my 40k stuff but after a very nice game of Apocalypse at our local Overlords club decided that gonna come back with new, unusual and very strange army. Here it is, on paper now (dah, screen), bit customized Hammers of Dorn (how could be anything different! Dorn forevah!). Continue reading
