Ever the helpful soul, Will's also written up some info on the inner workings of his army in full details so I don't even have to interpret it myself, so I'll be putting some quotes from him here and there to really explain it all in his own words.
Sons of Dorn
"After playing the hobby for a long time now it is only recently that I've finally found an army I truly love and bond with on a greater level.
The start of this army came from my a combination of those that I had collected before being an avid dwarf and space wolf collector I truly am a man on the beard and hammer! Though I wanted an army I could love for the fluff and to paint (as lets be honest painting space wolf grey is just boring).
Well it's my Imperial Fist chapter "Hammers of Dorn!" The Hammers of Dorn venerate their primarch, Rogal Dorn, to a degree far beyond those of the Imperial Fists' successors and I wanted to optimize this in my army making them fanatical about dorn." - Will
"This particular company I have made is that of the highest level, it is comprised of only the most veteran fists with them all being oldest and wisest battle hardened men! To enter this company a marine must give up his position in his current company after proving himself to then become a scout again in this one!
Going by all this fluff I made my army full of markings of the fist on all models. Oh and the hammers... lots of hammers! They're everywhere! Nothing smites the heretic like that of a hammer infused with the might of Dorn himself!" - Will
But it's not just hammer related wargear that spurs Will's models, sometimes he doesn't even look for an excuse to stick some more hammers wherever he can. It's more like "spot the guy without a hammer" than the other way around, but it's a great vibe running through the whole thing. It's very fitting in their roles in siege warfare and, combined with their highly mechanised units and long beards they kind of remind me of Space Marine Dwarves.
|Space Marine Tactical Squad with... Bolthammers?|
|The full squad|
|Assault Squad with Close Combat Weapons... AKA hammers|
|More Assault Marines with hammers|
|Yep, even the Scouts have hammers|
"I still took upon the fact that fists are bolter specialists with lots of Heavy Bolters but I wanted to convey my models to nearly all be close quarter looking with hammers ready to purge!
The last thing I really wanted this army to be about was slow, stubborn and purposeful, with lots of walkers, centurions, termies and men! This army will not field any flyers, skimmers (except a scout speeder maybe) or bikes.. Assault marines are allowed as they may wield the mighty weapon of Dorn." - Will
|Missile Launcher/Lascannon Devastator Squad|
|Combi-Pred and 2 Razorbacks|
|More hammers in the hands of Terminators|
|4 Heavy Bolters Devastator Squad|
So, What Now?
Unfortunately, as Will got everything in his collection painted, there are no shots of any of his upcoming works. Instead he left me with a teaser in writing as to what he has next in stall...
"Next for this army I've got a land raider crusader that's going to hold a chaplain and 10 Vanguard Veterens as well as filling out my ranks with some more Scouts and Marines, but most of all because I love my Centurions so much it would have to be another unit of these bad boys, another Dreadnought and I've got some very nice ideas for a Knight *wink*" - Will
