Monster March 2019 - Steel Legion Shadowsword Pledge

I'm taking part in Monster March this year, which is being run by Swordmaster over at Path of an Outcast (

The event is quite simple in premise, paint something big and scary during the month of March and follow along with your fellow entrants. For me, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to try to paint up the Shadowsword that I bought for my Steel Legion force. I think it should be quite manageable using my tank painting technique, as described in my Steel Legion Tutorial. So hopefully it should look something like my other tanks when it's done:

It's always been a bit of a dream of mine to have a fully painted Shadowsword for 40k. I think it all started when I was a kid and games of Epic were always being shown in White Dwarf. It just seemed so exciting, and I couldn't help but want a full size one. In particular the Shadowsword always had a sort of mystique to it for me; being the one that mounted the biggest gun!

Anyway, that's the pledge, so check back later to see how I get on!


  1. Brilliant, look forward to seeing it progress. Best of luck, I might be sitting out Monster March as I have to progress the Warlord in time for June TOC UK Walk and it won't get done in one month!

  2. Yes! Can't wait to battle this thing against my Hierophant!

  3. Best of luck! The Shadowsword is still one of my fave Super Heavies, but it lost the top spot when I found out about the Stormblade ;)
