Blogs are like buses, you wait ages for one and then two show up together. I've been mega busy at work over the last month (still am) but I thought I'd chip in with some info and pics of what I've been working on at home.
First up, I've been hanging fire on getting a Space Marine army for ages, despite how many people said I should. I've never really liked the background of the poster boys of the Imperium and they've never really had a chapter that I liked. I toyed with the idea of Space Wolves for a while, but then there's 3 people at MAWS who have Wolf armies and I don't fancy making it 4. Then I thought about how I can make an elite army on the cheap - Deathwing.
If I was going to do Marines, I'd do them properly. Always being vastly outnumbered, but the hardest guys I can get onto the battlefield. Luckily, a bloke from MAWS was selling a LOT of GW stuff, so I picked up some stuff on the cheap ready to go.
I've assembled everything I've currently got (pictures over the weekend maybe?) but I thought since Col.Straken talked about conversions yesterday, I'd show off my Deathwing HQs in an unpainted state.
|Belial with Lightning Claws - Magnetised on the arms to swap weaponry out.|
|Belial with Thunder Hammer and Storm Shield|
|Belial with Storm Bolter and the Sword of Silence|
|Chaplain with Storm Bolter and Crozius Arcanum|
|Librarian with Force Weapon and Storm Bolter (Lots of Grey Knight bits used!!)|
Really excited to get painting these guys now though and get them used in games!
