So I'm getting ready to start work on a new army, but my girl friend says I have to get rid of one I have before I can start on a new one. It's a fair request since I have so many armies that I'm running out of space. I've decided to part ways with my pre-heresy World Eaters.

Before I do that I decided to publicize their existence so that I'll have something to look back at later. Their development started with the release of the Blood Angels codex. It seemed the best book for this counts-as army. Keep in mind that these were started before much of the nifty Forge World pre-heresy stuff was released, though I did integrate many parts from Forge World as they were released.

Unit choices were based off what would be fun to model. The 1500pt force consists of:

HQ
Kharn the Betrayer (counts as Gabriel Seth)

Elites
Apothecary (counts as Sanguinary Priest)
Contemptor Dreadnought (count as Furioso/Death Company Dread)

Troops
15 Tactical marines
10 Assault marines
10 Berserkers (counts as Death Company)
Rhino/Razorback
2 Drop Pods

HV Support
5 Devastators
Predator

Yes, they look absolutely stunning. With the news of the upcomming Betrayal Book i`m planning on building a new force, Death Guard or World Eaters. It is so hard to decide!

Thanks for the compliments guy. It shows that the hard work has paid off. I enjoy converting a lot more then painting now, so it can be hard to finish a project.

I'll plan on taking some glamour shots of the army in a light box before I sell it, and with the Horus Heresy book releasing soon it seems like a good time.

Id say do Death Guard, thats the main one out of the 4 legions at Isstvan that not many people seem to be doing right now.

OP, your World Eaters are looking good, I really like the Rhino and Kharn models.
