Well, either you are looking for apocalypse formations from the apocalypse main rule book, apocalypse war zone books, White Dwarf Magazines (I think these are almost all outdated) In normal 40k dataslates from the itunes bookstore or android equivalent or the Sanctus Reach extension and white dwarf articles.

I think that's it for sources?

Ahhhh! I have now got my copy of Apoc Rules and I see... I see... makes a little more sense to me all now. Jude-ness strikes again!

The only downside to reading the Apoc rules - I now want to use said awesome rules on the horrendous scale they were designed for! Who is up for a 15-20k pt a-side game? I think that should be achievable with my IG and SM combined force...

So you are going to put up the opposing 15-20k force? I think I have that much imperial to do so... with Marines and AM. In saying that I think I shall slowly sell my Marines - not giving them the love they need plus I have the High Elves and Brets to sort out...

So many armies... so many projects.

My latest progress:
Got my flame tank squadron completed!


And 2/3 Scout sentinels done, now I need another multilaser one next time I have a spare 50.


Moving on next to a baneblade and another squadron of leman russ battle tanks, which ought to keep me occupied for a while.

Well, don't have a Leman Russ Battle tank photo yet but:


Also, I've finally got to basing my Airborne Plasma Commando force:
Bases:


Based miniatures:



I still have one more flyer base to do, and I'm strongly considering adding ten more rifleman scions to boost each squad to ten... Maybe I will even add a third squad with some meltas, to break the plasma monotony and give some actual anti-tank to the list.

I have some up earlier in this thread, but I'm a glutton for validation so here are some more:

That is an awesome looking army - Keep up the good work!

If I had one suggestion it would be to highlight the skin more. Compared to the army and the impressive amount of details in the cloth, metal and general plating, the skin falls quite flat currently. Be it brown, white or yellow the skin needs more pop to not fall short of the rest of the models.

The Ogryns in particular is a good example due to the larger surfaces of skin, where it seems like it's only a base and shade that is used. The cargo effects on the pants are damn good, but it makes the skin appear unfinished in comparison.

I really like the color contrast you got going in the models though (that blue is close to the eyes on my own models, which I have a weakness for), so do keep it up

Yes, it's a fair point. I had made the conscious decision not to do much more than the three to four paints over my run of the mill infantry due to the size of army that I'm constructing, but I agree that the Bullgryns will need more. Since I've got another two (or five if I get carried away) and a Nork Deddog on the plan, I think I'll revisit and layer up the skin in the next month or two.

I had a game with the army you can see above. The tank killed itself turn 2 and though the rest of the army performed valiantly and scored buckets of maelstrom points, the infantry were killed to a man and left only the Vulture gunship to save my bacon from a complete tabling... predicable against orks with these guys!
