So I figure to help get me motivated to finish painting this army I'll get some pictures of it as it stands today, and update this page as I get through the models.
These guys need to get painted and I think they'll look great once they are done.
I'm really proud of these guys. Everything about them looks great, and they are really great plastic minis. They just took a LONG time for me to get done.
That's a few pictures of one squad.
So far I've run 3 squads of 9 (borrowing a set from Liam), but lately I've been running 3 of 6. It keeps the targets up out there and doesn't lose a lot. It is less fluffy, but at least there are multiples of 3 in there I guess. If I really want to stick with that I'll need to get another aspiring sorc or get off my butt and just pay liam something for his models. ;)
However I'm also thinking of just running two full squads of 9 and using the points for other things...
Chaos Space Marines
Same state as the rhinos. I've been running then Autocannon with Las Sponsoons and they function as light vehicle hunters. I've been pleased with them so far, but they are magnetized should I want to change up the weapons.
Yes every knows the value that Oblits provide. If you play Chaos you've got these around somewhere. I'm limiting their use as I've got plenty of other expensive units, but again you really need that flexibility that they give. After using the oblit models for a year or so I traded them out for some Terminator lords that I will use as oblits. I had to do some chopping to get the staff on a thunder hammer arm so that I could model the power fist. I think they'll look great painted, and with the bases I use they will be able to stand upright rather than all looking like they are in some kind of dance video.
The only other thing I'd really like to add into the mix is a chaos dread. I think I could make a cool one out of the AoBR dread and it would be cheap. The Forgeworld one looks great, but is relatively expensive. I'm not usually one to shy away from expensive, but the fact is Chaos Dreads aren't usually great. I'd really want it as a fun point filler, but it is hard to justify $80 over $20 for such a function.
I'll get around to posting some list ideas, as I might use Kublacon at the end of May as an excuse to get 1850 fully painted.
