It seems to be that 8th edition armies generally contain lots of characters, or at least most of mine do and so do many i see on various YouTube batreps. This is true for my Guard armies as well, although there are generally a lot more troops in those!
Now, some of you maybe wondering about the names, some of you may even have picked up on the trend but if you like me and don't have a clue about "proper" names for things, all of the names of the squads are bases off the Latin names, or if your posh, the Binomial nomenclature, of various eagle's and Hawks, all of which are part of the Accipitridae family. This means that all of the names refer to actual Hawks and Eagles. The only deviation from this pattern is with Characters, who have been named after the common or English name for the Hawks and Eagles.
Next up are the photos. These are the second lot of photos i took for the army, the first lot were not very good. If you want a flavour of what the first photos were like, look at the bottom of the post at the reinforcements. These were taken on my phone, under less than ideal conditions. However, i was getting out the Hjaltland LI for there photo shoot and decided that it was a lot better conditions for pictures, so i got the Knights out as well for a re-shoot. It's not idea, as although it a lot better, the lighting could still be improved, although my camera, a Canon Rebel XSi (or 450D in the UK) with additional flash has made a huge difference. If i had had more time i would have gone and found my tripod to enable me to open up the aperture and get a better depth to the pictures. Anyway here are the new photos.
Rhinos at the front, devastators on the left and sternguard on the right

The trio of rhinos.
I have know idea when the reinforcements will be painted and table ready, I suspect that it could be quite a while!
