So after a blast of painting today (I love time off work) I have got my drop pod all done and dusted! I am pretty happy with the weathering I put on this and thinks its a pretty good first attempt but will hope to do better with a second which I definitely want to paint as I realised I am 1 Death company Dreadnought away from running a Strike Force Mortalis Formation which would be cool if not very competitive. Anyway here's my To-do list project completed stamp and some pictures!
New Army! or rather... New Army!!
As you might guess from my not so cryptic font colour change my new Army is going to be... Dark Angels!!! Now the reason for this is partly because Dark Angels are cool, partly because Corrm over at St Andrews Wargaming Blog as interested me with both his battle reports with his (huge when you put all three wings together) Dark Angel army plus his codex review, but also because of sheer chance!
I was browsing ebay and I saw a deal I just could not refuse basically. So for £90 (or 140 ish dollars) which includes the shipping, I now own (when they arrive):
1 Company Master
2 x 10 Tactical marines with plasma cannons and plasma guns
10 assault marines with 2 flamers
6 Ravenwing bikers
1 Ravenwing attack bike
1 Ravenwing Dark Talon
AND this all came in a KR multicase which was custom fit for it. An absolute bargain!!! All the models are part built and in great condition so can't wait to get stuck in really.
I plan on buying a devastator squad to go with these and running them with Grav weapons in a drop pod which would allow me to run a Demi Company from the Dark Angels Codex as an allied formation to a Death Company based Blood Angel CAD. That would mean a huge tonne of Objective secured units as I think all the demi-company get that benefit. I'll also be buying a razorback to go with these guys for that company.
If I have any spare cash after Christmas or perhaps as a present from someone I will pick up Sammael and some Black Knights so I can run some dirty dirty Ravenwing goodness as well.
Any thoughts comment or suggestions on this new army would be most welcome :)
Peace out ,
