I've got a bit more done on the Scorpions & I really like the way this army is coming together in my mind fluff wise.
So first up I've got the leader of the army Captain Ahab.
As with the special weapon marine in the last post on the army I modelled him in such away that the shooting weapon can be swapped.
Next we have Veteran Sergeant Haas
As with some of the models in the first post on the Scorpions another first for me was a techmarine.
Part of the fluff of the Scorpions is that marines have to be able move effortlessly from one squad to another so to try to get this feeling into the army all special weapons & sergeants will be able to change their shooting weapon.
Also as part of the same plan the sergeants will not have squad markings to enable them to be moved a round from squad to squad to give a more flexible feel to the army.
Fall of Captain Ahab & the destruction of the 6th company
The following passage is taken from the book of prophesy, as for told by Librarian Ishmael
A great battle their will be with the forces of the blood god & on the 8th day all will feel & taste the warp like they have never done before, whit a tear in realty the likes of which is seldom seen the beasts of the warp shall pour forth.
Three times Captain Ahab will fall to the ground on this day unto his death the 3rd time, but from even this he shall rise & beckon then all, all save one will fallow.
