I have converted to a Black Templars Army... They are both fun and effective. Good to play something with more of a soul then a generic codex chapter.

The painting was an easy conversion.

I have 2 full Crusader squads
2 full Assault Marine squads
Various Sword Brethren (or painted like it)
several Independent Characters, champion, Chaplain, ect...

I really enjoy it., much more so then the Sable Swords.

I am also debating scrapping the bug idea, and playing Tau instead. As I already have one very close-combat oriented army

Time to start sorting through all the bits and such

So, fought a 3 on 3 1000 Point battle tonight with my Marines...

Didn't do to well...

Army List as follows

Thunder Hammer, Combi Melta, Artificer Armor

Assault Squad x9
Sgt x Power Fist, Plasma Pistol, Melta Bombs

Tac Squad X9 1 X Melta Gun
Sgt X Nothing Special

Tac Squad x9, 1 X Melta Gun
Sgt, X Nothing Special

Termanator Squad
2x Chain Fist + Storm Bolter
1x Power Fist + Storm Bolter
1x Power Fist + 1x Assault Cannon
Sgt X power Weapon + Storm Bolter

= 1000 Points Even

The Battle didn't go well, it didnt' help that my Space Wolves and Eldar Allies all moved to the other side of the table, leaving me to deal with Chaos and dark Eldar..

Basicly, I got Pincered in betwen a hellhound, rhino, Full Chaos Tac Squad, 2x IG Veteran Squaqds, 2 Dark Eldar floating boat things on one Side And

Some Wonky Nasty Dark Eldar close Combat OMGS squad, Plus a Daemon Prince, Plus 2 IG Heavy Weapon teams on the other...

It didn't work well for me...

I may have to rethink the Horde space marine Concept....

Pics AhoY!

So, I was asked by a previous commenter for pics, so here they are.

This is the Dev Squad (or whats left of it)

Mainly Snap-Fit, still in parts, waiting for me to determine their fate (Might form a Tac Squad out of em.. I haven't decided)

This is the beginnings of the Assault Squad, 3 Assault Marines and a Sgt

Old Metals Term Squad, 4 assembled and primed, 1 in peices

This is the Second Tac Squad, It is in the process of being painted.
All of them are Mark 6 Corvus Armor Beaky Marines

This is the First Tac Squad.
This squad is finished.
Once again, all the Marines are Mark 6 Corvus Beaky style

Taking Stock

My Armies

So, I rebuilt/remodeled all of my marines (I have been concentrating on them for right now)

I have 2 10 Man Tac Squads of Mark 6 Corvus (Beaky) Marines,
8 Bolters, One Sgt, One Melta Gun (Old school, actualy looks like some sort of shotgun, but I am calling it, and painting it like a melta gun)
8 Bolters, One Sgt, One No gun at all (I don't have another melta, I am gonna have to bitz one from somewhere)

2.5 Assault Marines (+ Sgt)
2 with Bolt Pistol/Chain sword
1 with bolt pistol/No Arm
Sgt with Power Fist/Plasma Pistol (well actualy a hand flamer, but modified)

Termanator Squad (Metals_
4x Storm Bolters
1x Assault Cannon
2x Chain Fist
2x Power Fist
1x Sword

Space Marine Captain with Power Sword/Melta Gun. (However, I dont' think I can give him a melta via 5e)
Old School Chaplin with bolt pistol and Sword (Power or not)

Snap/Fit Dev Squad... I am not sure how many of them I will be able to savage. I have already slavaged the bolt pistol/Chain Sword from the Sgt.
2 Missle Launchers (Might be salvagable)
1 Lascannon (salvagable)
1 Plasma Cannon (Salvagable)
Approx 8 Random Snap/Fit Marines

Note.. No Vehicles.. Not even a dreadnaught.

I think I am gonna keep it that way for a bit, and play a SM "Horde" army and see how it goes... It was pretty tough last time I played, cause I played against IG.. and the Armor was a problem.

Till Next time

Lost Marines Oh My...

So, Headed over to Mom and Dads house the other day...

Mom was like.. take all of that old stuff from school you have (Awards, grades, little league baseball pics).

I was like.. fine... I head downstairs... and in the box, is a models case...

I open it up, It was like Christmas....

Full dev squad (Snap and fit) Dante, Mepheston, Dante Bodyguard, Chaplin,

All sitting in the dark for years...

Combining this with the 20 (or so) Beakie marines (Mark VI Corvus Armor) I have...

I have a good Start on a marine Army...

I have started painting... Sable Swords FTW.



First of Many (I hope)

So.. Back in to 40k

I blame Lantz. Seeing him play was just to much. Well, that and Dawn of War.

I broke out the old Hormaguants... realized they all need to be stripped, and went to town, they are all now stripped and primed black...

Wait, you don't realize what I mean.. These are the Old Style metal Hormagaunts. The ones that were 2 to a blister for 7 bucks (back in the early 90's.)

I have 34 of them...

I then tried to use the simple green method on the old genestealers I had.. It reacted poorly with the plastic, and made them VERY brittle... they broke into many pieces.. unfortunately, it was a sad day, as 9 soliders were lost that day, never to return.

I also have located an old school lictor (minus the tall back claw thingies)
2 old school biovores.

This is the nucleus of my new bug army...

Till next time...
