Hey everyone.... errr... I mean my one follower. Day 2 and I'm still here, I must be cured!
So I figured it would be a good time to talk about the army I'm currently working on and if you didn't guess by the title what it is then you probably want to go read a few articles on Lexicanum.
Yes friend(s) first on my docket is a Word Bearers force! Way back in 3rd Edition I played Iron Warriors (and no I did NOT use 3 squads of Obliterators!) but I was always sure not to make them TOO Chaosy and used a healthy mix of Chaos and loyalist parts. However I always wanted to build an army that was VERY steeped in Chaos, to me they are just more fun to build, convert & paint. So with that in mind who better than the bearers of the Word of Lorgar themselves?
Now I think most of you know even better than I do that the current Chaos Dex leaves something to be desired so I'm going to cheat and use the Space Wolves codex.... yeah I'm one of those guys. I used to be uptight about such things but as I got older I realized that 40k is spelled: "F-U-N" and really be honest what codex is best for representing a force of 10,000 year veteran Space Marines?
So for my first project I'm going to make some Thunder"hoof" Calvary! Yeah I wasn't cheesy enough to use 3 Obliterators squads back in the day but I'll be damned if I'm not building some Chaos Space Marines ridding on some corrupted horses!
I just started working on them last night so there are no photos of them yet (worst mold lines EVER!) but I will leave you with a photo I stole from Brent over @ Strictly Average to give you an idea of what I have in mind:
Special Thanks go to:
-Papa JJ My first follower who left me a very nice comment yesterday.
-The aforementioned Brent who let me display his fine work and who's work is much better
than just average, love the gold armor color! Or Armour Colour if your across the pond.
-Adam over @ Space Wolves for making me feel better about using the SW Codex with this article.
