Well after reading the post from Alex and me slowly putting my current project together for an event at Triple Helix in a few weeks I thought that a quick post and a couple of pictures were in order.
Anyway the thought came from an heroic last stand by a terminator unit in the face of Pete’s army that got me thinking that a few more of these heavily armoured bad asses might be in order. So a trawl through the bits boxes found slightly more than I bargained for. 35 terminators later and I had the basis of a formidable army and let’s face it only one chapter fields this many of them, so off to grab a copy of the Dark Angel codex I went. Thumbing through the pages I needed to fill 2300 points and with a couple of dreds this was almost done, but in a moment of sanity I realised that 2 dreds vs every heavy weapon my opponent had meant very easy kill points. I therefore added another unit but this time upgraded them to a command squad and 2300 points comprising 42 yes only 42 models was ready to kick ass and take names or more likely die messily trying.
That said as I tend to play the underdog losing is something that I do well [hell I’ve been sticking with my Emperor’s Children ever since they were released so I know what defeat feels like] but this should be a real change from my normal play style and early games have been a lot of fun.
