The great painting spree continues and I'm on to the second force, which is still part of the same overall force and the scions but forms the other side of the army, I am of course talking about the Hildasay PDF. There are not many models in this force, just 18 models, as the rest have already been painted up. This force includes the two company commanders, a command squad, a grenade special weapons squad (which my be expanded to a full vet squad at some point) and a bare bones infantry squad. These guys are here to act as screen and counter attack units for anything that gets to close to all the heavy weapons teams, which form the other part of the PDF force.

The second part of this update is very picture heavy! There's not much fluff here, that's on the Dagr Ormr page, which I'm hoping to get updates sometime soon.
So there is the complete Dagr Ormr force, two commanders, two command squads and 6 Scion squads, totalling 67 models. There are plans to add to this force, adding more special weapons, to get it to 4 per squad, and also adding transports but I have a separate post planned for that.

Surprisingly, I've already finished all the stormtroopers! Ok, so there not 100 percent finished, they need sealing and flocking but I'm not really able to do that right now. They are however, all painted and tabletop ready.
The force consists of two Tempestor Primes, two command squads and 6 squads of Scions, making a battalion detachment, the largest detachment that can be formed of purely Militarum Tempestus forces. I could add another commander and command squad but that's a discussion for another post. This post will look at the overview of the force and a few of the stand out models for me, the next post will go through the various squads and characters.
Next up, the squads and characters themselves.

With the completion of the Hellhammer and updating of the Hjaltland Light Infantry, it is time to move on to the next project. The next lot of models on the table are the Militarum Tempestus Dagr Ormr Strike Force. This force is partially completed with all the PDF heavy weapons squads, alongside a handful of Militarum forces, are painted and based, ready for action. This batch of models consists of two trays of storm troopers and a tray of PDF, approximately 45 storm troopers and 20 PDF soldiers.
These should not take to long as they have a fairly basic colour scheme, with the storm troopers being based their dark red and then silver and black with some spot colours, like blue for scopes and eye lenses.
The last tray of models is for the PDF, and consists of 2 commanders, a command squad, a special weapons squad and a squad of vets. These are for defensive actions and protection of the heavy weapons and so are only a few models that need painting.

The grey panel on the side is not unpainted or been missed, i left it grey on purpose. This is where a panel was missing when i bought it and was originally painted to hide it but i decided to paint it grey, like its been primed or its the under chassis and the armour panel is missing or been damaged and the crew is waiting for a new replacement panel.
So there we are, the updated Hellhammer, completely battle ready and, as we've seen, some time beast on the table top.
