Work on the shattered legion continues at pace! These World Eaters are nearly complete, short of blood splatter and some work on an engine glow, maybe, not sure on that one. The bases are all ready, I just need to buy some clear stems to go on them for skimmery goodness! The sergeant has a power fist, for extra smash face happy times too.
With these guys nearly done, I have the Sons of Horus plasma cannon squad to polish off and then I just have a 5 man Sons of Horus command squad to paint and yes, I'm sure many of you guessed it, the big survivable bastard that is Garviel Loken is coming.
Loken won't be getting the rough paint job that everyone else is getting, he will probably be painted over a 2 day period as my only concern. He's never going to be Golden Demon standard, but I will be aiming for my best on him and taking an appropriate amount of time to do so.
And with that, I will have 2500 points of Shattered Legion, though having gone through my list, I think I will probably drop and sell off the Emperor's Children Palatine blades. They just don't work all that thematically and including them AND getting to 2500 means a chunk of upgrades. So overall the force will work better at 2000 points and be more fun, fluffy and a tiny bit more competitive as well.
Though against any slightly powerful list these guys will get smoked. But I didn't build them for that! I was just really captivated by the Audiobook rendition of Istvann III and I had to build a force for it.
