The Black Legion

I have been speed painting the new Black Legion army that I am doing. My gaming group has decided we will do an Apocalypse game with all 18 founding chapters in a bitter heresy battle. The final total will be 20000 points and all models will be painted to represent modern age color schemes. It was my idea so a lot of the extra work will fall on me. We are doing this to enter the Basement Bash contest entered in the latest White Dwarf. We will be playing on a 6'X18' board that we made for the apoc. games. Half of the board will be filled to the brim with well made and painted city fight terrain. If someone else wins the contest then they will deserve it because we will have painted back drops and the cooolest battle possible. Deployment will most likely be done to recreate battles that happened in the Horus Heresy. On one end we will have the emperors children, world eaters, death guard, sons of Horus(black legion,) fighting against the Iron Hands, Salamanders, Raven guard fading into Blood Angels, white scars, and Imperial fists going against who ever assaulted the Emperors palace. This will be a site to behold for any true 40k fan. Anyway here are a couple of pictures of what I have done already.
