It's an anthology I think that focuses what happens to the legions after Istvaan V.

Despite their primarch being a monumental douche, if I had to I'd pick the Thousand Sons. I've always just thought that both their pre- and post-Herey armour colour and style looked cool. Particularly the colour scheme of the pre-Heresy legion and the Egyptian deathmask style of the post-Heresy legion.

Also, trying to hide or prevent unsightly bulges from appearing, in order to avoid public scrutiny and ridicule, is something I (and I'm sure several members on here) can relate to.

The human appendix. Proof of a higher power. A divine kill switch so to speak.

No one really likes a smartass, but people tend to like a dumbass even less.

I've decided upon Ultramarines, I've got 10 men 90% finished, I have 5 standing by but I'm wondering whether I should wait for the special weapon packs from forgeworld to be released so I can make them into either a support squad or a heavy support squad.

Congrats on deciding, mate

I'm still struggling, I too love the FW paint scheme for the SoH, however, this would be my 3rd green army and I just really don't want that... I'm currently thinking either Night Lords (cool paint job, definitely not green) or maybe Iron Warriors. Bleh... I can make decisions that are actually important to "life" quickly as hell. What colour I want to paint my plastic space men? Not a chance in hell...

Son-of-the-Emperor!

Book 2 comes out next year and has Iron Hands. If FW comes out with sweet biotic bits I may not be able to stay away from starting a legion.

I hope they bring out the ultramarine praetor bits, I converted some helms, but they don't look especially awesome, they have the shape, but the detail ain't very good.

I had a hard time picking between 1k sons an alpha leaving after reading the HH books about them 1ks got the raw end of the stick and I'm not all the way convinced that alpha legion is chaos I think they are more of a triple agent type thing. But I do know for Christmas I'm getting my self a nice chaos set and begin building one of he two.

Imperial Fists 1st Company, Sigismund's Templars, that'll be my HH project.. Basically because I already have a Black Templar army and I'd love to have the foundations of the most righteous chapter in the imperium!

The Night Looords beckons... Join us... Join us! We bring the Night!

And I feel you about the decision part of the hobby. It's overall easier for me to make choices about diagnoses and treatments for my patients then it was for me to chose which legion to paint...

I think right now I've decided on Sons of Horus. I like the Justaerin (though in any lists I have yet to use them...) though I hate the green (my CSM and Necrons are both green). Having tried something akin to lightning effects before, I also doubt my competence in precision painting haha.

Luckily, all I've got on hand are 5x Mk II marines, so I've still got a bit of time before the big chunks of shit show up before I really get down to business.
