On Thursday last week, I weathered the feet of the Legion Tactical Squad, completing the first 10 Astrates for my XIII Legion force. I am very pleased with the overall result. I am starting to write-up some background for what Chapter of the Legion they are and what they are doing during the Shadow Crusade and associated units.
Below is a picture ffor a comparison with my previous Ultramarines, last worked on circa 2012.

"At the time of the Calth Conjunction, the 106th Company, alongside the 105th and 107th Companies, was re-equipping at at Iax following counter-xenos (Ork) operations along the northeastern border of Ultramar. Legion Command had assigned the 106th Company to the light response Strike Cruiser for conducting anti-xenos and stabilizing operations along the frontier. Following the Betrayal at Calth, the 106th, and its sister companies, were utilized by the Tetrarch of Iax for a series of actions in systems surrounding Iax. These included void counter-assaults upon World Eaters and Word Bearers traitors, broader counter pirate operations, and reinforcing the Knights of Argeia in defense of the Argaas spaceport and neighboring ancient citadel."
