A Loli: Some Assembly Required
Okay I've decided to start a project log as I start up the hobby again. I've lost my various armies for various reasons, some had to be sold off, some got broken - bookshelf with it's contents falling upon your army shelf is never too good for ones collection - etc etc.
Well thanks to my birthday, Christmas and a refund from the tax man and £100 from my fake but real Grandad, I've decided to get it all back. I'll be starting from scratch with everything, all my armies and some new ones too. I've never been a one army at a time person either, I need multiple otherwise I get bored, so this could get rather disjointed to which the apologise. While apologies are on the table, don't expect great painting from me, I've never been to good at it though I am trying to improve, getting my enjoyment from the assembly and eventual gaming.
Here is a rundown of what armies I'll be doing.
30k Iron Hands, I preordered the LE Iron Hands cover codex for a reason, my favourite chapter ever, but since I wanted something different from last time I'll be going FW with this, love their models for my favourite chapter, still unsure if I'll be equipping them for 30k or 40k though simply because I only get to game at my local GW since I'm currently unaware of any gaming groups in Stoke and the GW has very few 30k players and games.
Sisters of Battle, had my Sisters since Witch Hunters. So I'll be starting them again, even now I love the Nuns with guns and feminism in the 41st millennium. However as my little sign to GW that Sisters players and fans still exist, I'll be buying everything from them despite how much it will cost me, I'll be going pure Sisters too so no Inquisition allies or anything like that. I just like the idea of some guy at a GW depot looking at an order form every month and seeing a consistent stream of Sisters.
Dread Mob, this will be new. I've always liked Orks but never the whole Mob thing, but loved their Walkers and views to Tech - that and I think the GW Ork flyer is the nicest Flyer they have done, someone name me a nicer GW flyer? - and when I found out there was a book with fluff and a list aimed at Ork Walkers and all that goodness I had to have it. My plan was to always wait until Raid on Kastor Noverm got redone I'd do it then, but browsing the FW site while pricing up their Iron Hands, I came across the Dread Mob list updated for 6th so this got added to my 'In Progress' list. Never played with Orks before so this I'm looking forward to.
Ad Mech, my avatar should tell you what I'm in love with. I'm dabbling in FW for my Iron Hands and parts of my Dread Mob, eventually a Repressor for my Sisters, why not cave and enjoy another of my loves too.
All of this will probably take me years but it keeps me occupied. Anyway that's it, I know it's a long first post for a Plog but I just want to give you an idea of what to expect and a little bit of why I'm doing each army, even if it's a little bit of background. I'll try to get some photos up soon as.
The Old World just became a fart in the bath.....
