Hi all, I'm getting close to completing my 2500pts Emperor's Children army, and I thought it was time for me to post up some pics, and get some opinions. I have bought 99% of the models I need for my army, and all but Fulgrim are base-coated, but I'll just post pics of the finished models. Please just speak your mind, no need to hold back . FYI, I know the 'gold' doesn't look like gold all the time, but that's because I'm still learning this 'NMM' technique. To be honest, I don't think I'll change it no matter what people say, because even though it might not seem like gold all the time, I still like the unique look it's bringing to my army . I can't post this without mentioning our member 'Whitescar', who's EC army has been my inspiration. The shield on my champion is a copy of his design, and you might notice more elements that match his army (though I don't dare to think my army gets any where near his it looks). So here we go: http://i79.photobucket.com/albums/j146/MorgothNL/IMG_1639_zpskxzqm1i8.jpg http://i79.photobucket.com/albums/j146/MorgothNL/IMG_1631_zpsld3ry1lh.jpghttp://i79.photobucket.com/albums/j146/MorgothNL/IMG_1630_zpsyy917chf.jpghttp://i79.photobucket.com/albums/j146/MorgothNL/IMG_1629_zpslfeop6lz.jpghttp://i79.photobucket.com/albums/j146/MorgothNL/IMG_1627_zpsvewrzobz.jpghttp://i79.photobucket.com/albums/j146/MorgothNL/IMG_1626_zpshhggrlih.jpghttp://i79.photobucket.com/albums/j146/MorgothNL/IMG_1625_zpsp8vdmwhv.jpghttp://i79.photobucket.com/albums/j146/MorgothNL/IMG_1624_zpsxaugcfdr.jpghttp://i79.photobucket.com/albums/j146/MorgothNL/IMG_1628_zpsusgpgu3d.jpghttp://i79.photobucket.com/albums/j146/MorgothNL/IMG_1622_zpsycvgmuuj.jpg
Hi everyone! I have finally come to the end of the tunnel regarding my Emperor's Children. It has taken 5 years, and frustrated me into getting 4 entire other armies in between, to finish but I have only 1 model left to paint. I have gone over and changed the list more times than I can count but I think this final version will be a legal, fun but strong list. Please have a look, make sure I didn't make any mistakes (I have missed things in the passed causing me to run an illegal list) and please give your input on this final version. Feel free to make small suggestions, but don't start rebuilding the whole list ;). 2500 Pts Maru Skara HQ - Legion Champion (Tartaros, Phoenix Spear, Sonic Shrieker) - Eidolon - 4x Command Squad (Tartaros, 4x Chainfist) ELITES - Apothecary (Artificer Armour, Power Sword) - Contemptor Mortis (Kheres) - 6x Phoenix Guard (Grenade Harness, Sonic Shriekers) TROOPS - 10x Tactical Squad (Extra Close Combat Weapons, Melta Bomb Serg., Phoenix Spear Serg., Artificer Armour Serg., Vexilla) Rino (Dozer Blade) - 10x Tactical Squad (Extra Close Combat Weapons, Melta Bomb Serg., Phoenix Spear Serg., Artificer Armour Serg., Vexilla) Rino (Dozer Blade) FAST ATTACK - Primaris Lightning (Ground Tracking Auguries, Battle Servitor Control, 2x2 Kraken Penetrator Missiles) - Storm Eagle (2xTL lascannons, Extra Armour, TL Heavy Bolter) HEAVY SUPPORT: - Land Raider Phobos (Armoured Ceramite, Dozer Blade, Frag Assault Launchers, Extra Armour) - Sicaran Battle Tank (Lascannon Sponsons, Dozer Blade) So that is the 2.5k Version. Eidolon will most likely go with the apothecary and the 6 Phoenix Guard in the Storm Eagle. The Champion will join the command squad in the landraider (this way both squads have anti-armour capability and the apothecary will be in the larger squad so will have a better chance of saving guys). With Maru Skara I will outflank the Lightning, Storm Eagle and Contemptor T2 The 3k version has everything the 2.5k list has with additionally: - Fulgrim (Fireblade) - 1x2 Kraken Missiles on the Lightning extra - 1x Phoenix Guard extra in the current squad - Armoured Ceramite on the Sicaran and Storm Eagle (the last is a bit meh, but didn't really have any other thing to do with the pts) Fulgrim will join in the Eagle obviously So, there it is, please let me know what you think. I have played similar lists for over 10 games, but the landraider for example is a new addition (and the model that still needs paint). Before the landraider I transported the Command Squad in an Anvillus and added another Contemptor Mortis with the leftover pts. However, that list was too flyer heavy to my taste, and played the same every time. I hope the Landraider will be more fun, add some needed lascannons and still do well as a delivery system.
So i signed myself up for the "other" 20 gamer thread (much like i signed up to the "other" badab thread.. im a rebel like that) and said i'd take on the death guard.. After my compressor decided to kill itself and attempted to kill me when i tried to fix it i ended up off target. So i've decided that the best course of action is to show my shame up front and start a wip thread for these guys.. http://fc01.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2012/273/7/f/death_guard_by_typhion-d5gdyta.jpg this is the first guy so far.. originally i was going for a mildly off white with funky grey shadowing and stuff.. but my girlfriend decided to slag it off so one oil wash later and hes a bit browner.. now the main question is "too brown?" or does this guy look suitably like the deathguard as portrayed in the lovely new book? tell me what you think!
