I picked up a full Mortifactors Space Marine army in a trade.
I am new to 40k , can you tell me anything about them ?
Any web links to some pictures and background for them ?
Should I stick with them or strip them down and paint them up as something else ?
The Mortifactors are a badass army. They are cannibals, and ritualistically eat their enemies and fallen brothers in order to gain their strength. Mortifactor Chaplains act as shamans who go into death like trances before a battle in order to know the Emperor's Will.
There's a link to some of their story. Info on them is hard to find because they're an underground army, but that means there is lots of open space to blaze your own history for them. I would say keep em, they're hard and few people play them.
I read somewhere that one of their warriors was skilled enough to be recruited into the Grey Knights.

Mortifactors are featured in the novel by Graham McNeil called "Warriors of Ultramar."
There's an old link to the Armageddon Campaign website that's still active, and it has some info on the Mortifactors if I remember right. The entire chapter left Posul to fight at Armageddon because they believed it was their destined apocalypse.
Not sure of the link address but you could probably find it with a web-search.
PS: I wouldn't strip them down unless the paintjobs really suck. Painting an entire army is a lot of hard work, and if you really want to paint your own, then I suggest starting with NEW models over "cleaned" ones.
Now go eat your dead. Braains. BRAAAINSS! (Drool. Slurp.) :lol:
Purge all the heretics,
Kill the alien scum,
Suffer not the unclean to live,
And have a beer when you're done.
OK thanks guys
I'll think about stripping them , the paint job is quite ordinary , but not too bad , it could be touched up to look a bit better with some inks and shading they might be OK.
