501st Ork Hunters "Black Blades"

As my IG army grows and grows I like adding some
of the new fantastic range of miniatures to it,
but I also like putting my own spin on them.

I primarily run Steel Legion, but seeing as GW
has a hard-on for Catachan's and Cadians they
get the new models leaving much of the other
IG range in the dust.

The nice thing about Catachan's is they also
fit into the fluff about Steel Legion Ork Hunter
from the Armageddon Campaign book.

So to include some of the new range of models
my 450th Steel Legion has attached some 501st
Armageddon Ork Hunters to help root some Orks
out of some ruined Hives and Habs.

First up is my Gunnery Sgt. Harker model, I loved
painting this model but part way threw it I heard
a voice in my head that said: "I pity da fool"
and from that I give you Sgt. B.A. Barachas

As game terms to he an his men will NEVER deploy via Valkyrie

To this unit I'm still adding a heavy flamer, vox op and Demo charge

Next up is the Colonel 'Iron Hand' Straken model, again a great model
but for the Catachan range, so now he's an Ork Hunter and will
be filling the roll of a shotgun wielding Vet Sgt.

This squad is also getting a heavy flamer, demo charge and vox op.
