Bruder Heinz of the 3rd Gruppe, 2nd Gefechtskompanie, Galactic Knights space marines

This is the next member of the 3rd Gruppe lead by Komtur ( sergeant) Karl. He is wearing MK III armor. The Mark III was never intended to replace the Mark II armour but instead was a specialised suit to provide heavier protection than the normal Mark II suit when fighting in conditions similar to that found on the Squat homeworlds, in mines, subterranean complexes or the tight corridors of a spacecraft. It has more frontal protection than the Mark II Armour, but the weight of the rear armour was lessened to compensate. The suit uses a heavy armoured helmet with sloping plates designed to deflect shots to the left and right, thus inspiring its name as the Iron Armour pattern. The helmet inspired the Mark IV and VI helmet designs. The wedge-shaped helmet (designed to deflect incoming fire from the front) formed the basis for the later distinctive Corvus Beak helmet of the Mark VI pattern. Iron Armour clanks and grinds with the slightest movement, making it all but useless in stealth operations. However, the presence of such an imposing and ancient suit of Power Armour is a great honour for all Space Marines and can greatly boost unit morale in combat. ( warhammer 40k wiki)

Bruder Johann Space Marine of the Galactic Knights

Here is the next Space Marine of the 2nd Gefechtskompanie 3rd Gruppe, Bruder Johann. This is the first beaky marine i did for the Galactic Knights. I will do a few more in older armor as it is the habit of the ordo teutonicus ,aka the Galactic Knights, to pass on old armor to new marines . So there will be ,eventually, all kinds of tactical and terminator armor in the chapter.

Here is the icon of the Mondkrieger a bit bigger :

Mondkrieger

The icon on the figure is a decal I made with decal paper and a printer. As I do all my decals.

Here are some more pictures of Karl:

The black helmet also denotes him as a member of the first Gefechtskompanie. All members of the first Kompanie wear black helmets instead of white ones to denote their elite status. So as a former member and a Komtur he has a black helmet with a red stripe denoting his rank.

Next up some more members of the 3rd Gruppe.
