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

Battle at the Phall System. What if?

Imagine what would happen if both armies had a chance to fortify Phall System`s planets and start waging war there? Play with us in epic event at Warhammer World 29th April!Imperial Fists vs Iron Warriors

Details of engagement Warhammer 30k:

  1. One Primarch and special characters per side (you know, having 5 Primarchs each side would be rather funny haha so sooner is better than later, apply ASAP to book your character for your army list).
  2. 3000pts per army.
  3. 5 players per side minimum (but if we find more willing commanders, we can sort it out I guess).
  4. Armies must be painted.
  5. Special scenario will be applied.
  6. Game will take place at Warhammer World 29th April 2017, Saturday only but you are more than welcome to join us for whole weekend pub crawl!

In terms of story line for this event we will try to cover Battle of the Phall story with battles on Phall I or III on planet surface. If you like this idea of epic clash of eternal enemies and would like to join us please dont hesitate, do you duty to the emperor and show those iron idiots who is the true master of the siege!

We are looking for 5 players from each side, we will cover whole event with pictures and possibly with video. To apply please contact through this form:

Update: Sigismund and Polux taken!

Primarch-Progenitor, to your glory and the glory of him on earth!

New Year`s resolutions

I must tell you something. I do not even have one! I mean, I have plans, goals and stuff to paint and assemble but I did not try to put anything heavy on my shoulder this year due to experience ^^ Personally I do not know any single player that did make some resolutions and had them finished 😀 Do you?

calvin-hobbes-new-years-resolutionsSo, I am going to take it easy: paint my whole 30k 3k points army that is prepared for Phall Conflict untill May and finish Mr. Lysander asap.  I am going to finally put all my 40k stuff I do not use on eBay this year and use those money for more 30k stuff ^^

Thats it. Next post gonna be about Phall Conflict and some WIPs with tanks 😀

Challenge me traitor!

To all Iron Warriors traitorous commanders: you are not worthy of having your minis painted! You are a scum of the galaxy and should have been deprived the right of having a single layer of paint on your miniatures! Challenge me in this single painting combat!

Imperial Fists Siege Breaker

Gastos Rhor, The Siege Breaker of Phall III

I bet you can`t even paint a single HQ choice till the end of December! My Imperial Fists siege Breaker is awaiting! Show me  your plastic or resin visage and lets see if you can finish painting your commander till the end of 2016. I want to see who will Gastos Rhor face on the battlefield of Phall III.
