The timing proved fortuitous as our group organiser had just had the idea of showcasing members armies on our website. See my models on parade here.
This picture shows the majority of the Legion – it’s only when I see them all out like this that I realise just how much painting I have to get through! Currently the ranks stand at 323 models. 194 are unpainted, 75 need stripping, 34 are base coated, and a whole 20 are painted to my satisfaction.
Part of the unpainted masses include these, still on sprue models. Pretty much a set and a half of the chaos models from the Dark Vengeance boxed set.
This includes my third hellbrute which I intend to try modifying to have a power scourge rather than the power fist using a spare scourge from the defiler box.
Speaking of defilers I have a trio of them also, thanks to an excellent trade with a fellow club member. I really like the defiler model and find that when you place one of these on the battlefield your opponent tends to go all out to destroy it. Understandable as they can cause major destruction. The down side to this is that due to the size of the model itself it often has difficulty finding cover from enemy fire.
If your familiar with my earlier post about my army you’ll know I have an unhealthy obsession with chaos bikers. I just really like the idea that the Hell’s Angels of our time evolved into the frothing maniacs of the 41st millennium. My scratch built Land Raider Spartan sits beside them, built off a WWI tadpole tank the beast comes in at a smidge under 13 inches long, and with the updated rules for it in Imperial Armour it can take a massive chunk out of your points allowance but the idea of it delivering up to 25 of your assault prepped troops right into the enemy’s front lines is a tempting one (or 12 terminators for added evil sauce).
This little lot didn’t appear in the “group shot” but these are the majority of those requiring stripping in preparation of being repainted, and many need minor repairs with arms/guns missing. It was only after I had reboxed everything and putting them back on the shelves that I realised that I left my Warpsmith on the shelf and not included him in the photos, oh well one more grey plastic model wont be missed!
