Hello there fellas and ladies, figured it was about time I consolidate my efforts into one thread that I can try and keep track of, rather than lots of confused small ones, that all fizzle out after about a week and a half...
So, this is going to contain my various projects, ongoing or one-off, tabletop or contest, for fun or for prizes!
So, stuff on at the moment:
Slowly working though my Circle army for Hordes.
Starting a 'tale of 4 gamers only in warmachine' style thing for my local club, using Cygnar.
Plotting and planning a Chaos Mortals army, for the new release...
...And of course, showing that pesky Kuffy who is boss in our traditional, bi-annual "lets paint each other to death" contest, painting up 2k of Marines (Black Dragons again, yay!).
First port of call is that damn dwarf. The Black Dragons will see the field of battle again!
As I'm probably going to be using the new Marine codex, when it comes out (new shiny toys!), I don't really have an exact plan of my 2k yet.
I know a selection of stuff I want, and adding it up (guestimating points using the current 'dex etc) it's a fair whack over 2k, but it's what I'm going to try to do:
- Captain with either Lightning Claws or a Relic Blade
- 3-4 ten man Tactical Squads, with varying load-outs.
- 8-10 man Dragon Claw Squad (possibly vanguard veterans?)
- 8-10 man Sternguard Squad in Drop Pod
- 10 man Devastator Squad (again, not sure on load out, maybe 4 MLs, maybe using combat squads more)
- Dreadnought with flamer-y style weapons (Multi-Melta/Heavy Flamers), in Drop Pod
- 2-3 Land Speeders (unsure on weapons again)
- 8-10 man scout squad, probably with Tellion leading, as I love the mini to death.
- 5 Terminators (quite ornate, probably with 'heresy-style' armour, as I really like making it).
- ...and possibly a Land Raider Redeemer, and some more characters along the way (Librarians look awesome!).
Now, I don't want this army to be on the same bases as the old fellas.
I'm considering the same desert bases as my Tau (Khemri Brown, drybrushed bleached bone), as it is still a nice contrast, and there are some nice desert tables at WHW that I would fit onto, but outside of there and my FLGS, they are probably a little thin on the ground (desert tables, that is).
So, another option is a more traditional brown-y plus grass, which certainly fits in more, but is less cool.
Something else that gives me some nice modelling options is doing some ruins, as in a ruined city. However, this generally wouldn't contrast well with my black armour (which I think is a bit of a must, for a marine army), so I'm open to colour scheme ideas for ruins...
So then, my first question of you is thus...
Black Dragon basing, should it be:
a) Desert style (Khemri, Bleached Bone);
b) Boring style (Scorched, Khemri, Khaki, Grass); or
c) City ruins style (suggest a colour scheme!)
Ta to everyone for reading, and I'm hoping to have some pics of some (slightly converted) Black Reach Tactical Marines, plus some PP stuff for you on weds!
