As we all do, I have a want list of models so long Ron Jeremy would baulk at the sight of it, but my New Years Resolution has been to completely finsh a set of models before moving on to buying the next set, and I have been good.
With only, I have 5 Khador minis awaiting their Microart bases, and then but an evenings work to paint them, I will soon be free to start the next project.
I have decided that my next project will be a slow build up towards a new Guard army for 6th Ed - New Edition/New Army kick - but I needed a suiatbly epic model to capture my imagination to do it, and last week I found it...
I plan on picking the above models from Micropanzer - 3 Amakuadri Striders for a Sentinel unit, and 2 of the new but likely limited run of Amakudari Stompers as Leman Russ stand ins - likely 1 Vanquisher and 1 Punisher.
For troops, its a close call between Mantic Corporation Marines and Pig Iron System Troopers (the first are cheaper, but the latter will fit better)
All I need then are three Forge World Tauros like models and a list built around them and Creed, as I intend to really make use of the Guard orders system.
So as well as showing off cool toys I have found, I am looking for suggestions from folks for where I could source suitably fitting Tauros equivilants to fit with my Big Stompy Robots, also, I will have 1 Valkyrie to go with the one planned Bastonne lead Veterans unit - any suggestions for a suiatble 3rd party vehicle for the Valkyrie also welcome.
allow me to introduce the first post of the tyrants tale of gamers.
after a discussion with the gaming group we decided that we wanted our 40k armies to fight it out in style and the best way to do that is get them painted, so a gauntlet was throw as a group we would paint our target armies and then have a royal rumble at the end.
being the crusader for the cause i decided i will drop the army bomb first
we start of with my army of HQ's
as you can see i have a lot of stuff and it just keeps growing so i get over run
so my pledge is to get all my army done by the end of the tale of gamers and if i get it done before may 20th i will get my reward of one of these baby's
