Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hi, here's my first real post. I've been lurking around for a while enjoying all the discussions and pix, but have run into a roadblock. A bit about my predicament. I generally paint on commission, but have started to assemble a few forces to sell as blocks.
I am sitting in front of about .66 of a company worth of marines trying to get going. I can't decide whether I should just suck it up and paint them in the 'smurf' style so they'll sell, or whether I should do something that might be a bit more fun and less seen (a chapter w/o their own codex) so someone who is looking for something a bit more exciting than our boys in blue might be attracted and willing to fork over some $$$ for a well put together unit.
I was thinking about the following (in no particular order)
1; Red Hunters
2; Sons of Medusa
3; Doom Warriors
4; Skull Bearers
5; Imperial Harbingers
7; War Bearers
8; Imperial Hawks
The unit pix are available on GWs website http://us.games-workshop.com/games/4..._gallery/1.htm
if you don't know what they look like.
I'm not really interested in making up my own chapter, as these won't be staying with me.
thanks for any feedback you all might have. Any other outside suggestions would be appreciated too :yes:
I didnt see any Imperial Hawks in there although i'll just assume you ment the Emperors Hawks. Anyways of the one's you picked I like that one the best. Its got a nice easy symbol (might even be on the transfer sheet I dont know) and the colors arnt single dimensional. the yellow trim adds a little more life to the armor then just plain red. But if your going for something people will reconize more but is not mainstream id say go with the crimson fist. look good and not used as much as the ultramarines and Black templars.
sorry, it was the Hawk Lords ...
to many hawks I guess. Although I do like the Emperors Hawks...
I had painted a BA army at one point, and am not TOO excited to do another red chapter... but I really like the idea behind the Red Hunters (a chapter with close ties to the inquisition) without the whole Grey Knight psychic thing.
As far as the DA, too much fluff, too many special models and restrictions and such.
The crimson fists are pretty cool though...
How about Raven Guard? Then you get to include rarer special characters - and convert an assault squad to have all lightning claws?
Mmmmmm lightning claws . . . . . .
I haven't really heard much about the red scorpions, what's their deal? Do they have their own codex coming out, or are they perhaps tied to the Medusa V campaign this summer?
I'm trying to stay away from the chapters with too much fluff, but at the same time, as you pointed out, a chapter that is currently of interest would be beneficial
Any info would be appreciated.
Sweet! Thanks for the tip.
They have been officially added to the list of contendors (and fairly high up, I might add)
I think a Sons of Medusa army would be awesome: something different with great colors.
