Painted Intercessors

This is a second squad of Intercessors for my Space Marine (Adeptus Astartes) force in Warhammer 40,000. Or they could just be part of a ten-woman squad with the first lot, depending on how I built my army; it is perhaps a sign of how little I really know about the game that I’m not really sure whether I would want to do that or not. These ones are wielding stalker bolt rifles (scope on top if you need to ask) which are long ranged, harder hitting weapons than the normal bolt rifles.

Of course, the nature of a Space Marine army is that there is a lot of uniformity between the miniatures so of course these Intercessors are clad in white, black and green just like the previous ones. I’ve enjoyed the alternative heads and I think that it gives a bit more character to the army than endless helmets. I do recognise the stupidity of wearing unobtainium armour but not bothering with a hat, but Warhammer 40,000 is a setting in which people fly across the galaxy in mile-long spaceships in order to punch each other on the nose so I’m never too worried about the fine points of military rigour.

Next on the painting table: Infiltrators.

  1. Nice work! I picked up some of those Statuesque heads a few years ago for a similar project, though I’m still stuck with the previous squad still being unfinished! These ladies have come out looking great!

    • Thanks! I have found that adding these excellent alternative heads makes the whole process much more fun. I’ll look forward to seeing what yours look like when they make it to the top of the ‘to do’ pile.

  2. Hey, or they can be Mentors Elite Quadra and each work as an independent commander! (I have no idea of what I’m saying… rules are not my thing, either…) This women look business, good job!

    • Thanks very much! Indeed, these ladies could be any kind of special team in my mind… and of course being Space Marines they’re already rather special. But I’m primarily all about the gaming and so they’ll always be Intercessors on the tabletop.

  3. Very nice. 🙂
