I already posted some stuff in the Army list section, but repeat it below so you know what this is all about....
After a whole year of trying to decide which new army I should start
(one of my favorites was a Fantasy Skaven force), the pictures of the new awesome Blood Angels models made the decision for me!
I had collected a few Space Marine models before, but never felt inclined to collect any boring loyalists....
With the Blood Angels and the very artistic models, I am also able to finally field a more "girlie" army (sorry boys ), different to my beloved 2500 points plaque marine force.
Although I have to say it is priceless when I see the open mouths and faces of all the boys when I, as a girl, turn up with a mutated stinking Nurgle horde for tournaments....
To my army list...
A few days ago I got enough boxes and blisters to create a 1500point force together with the few metal models I already have.
I already have assembled them and cant wait to start painting....
this army is the sixt army I collect, next to 3 Fantasy, one other 40k and a Circle Orboros army.
I like small, elite, fast, flexible and tough forces, as I have shown with my Plaque marines which have all their fast attack slots filled up (Disease can spread soooo fast....)
Generally, I hate the big clumsy vehicles we are presented with in 40k,
so I refuse to include any vehicle in my force-- so my "bikes" are always converted beefed up Fantasy Chaos Marauders.
Big smoky tanks are for mere humans!
A small, elite, fast and tough force is what the whole gene-enhanced superman business is about, in my eyes.
I still love my plaque marines too much, so I decided to invent some background--
These two forces are actually of the same chapter!
My new Angels (working title so far "Pink Angels") are the elite survivors of a horrible warpstorm that engulfed their home planet, causing the flaws in the Blood Angels gene-seed run wild in the chapter, and also producing horrible mutations. Only a few select members protected by the Chief Librarian of the Chapter (I have him represented with Mephiston) survived without flaw and mutations, while the rest of the Chapter succumbed to Chaos and Nurgle.
Of course, the Chapter is now outlawed, hunted by the Inquisition, enemies on every corner, and the few loyal survivors hardly hope to see the light of another day.
They are fighting their last battles, trying to preserve whatever honour there is left....
This is a 1500 Point Blood Angels force, and after my colour scheme will be a vibrant warlock purple, their work title is "Pink Angels" (I dont really like the Blood Angels red....).
- Mephiston (Chief librarian)
- Captain (with jump pack, meltabombs and lightning claws), I use the model of Shrike for him
- Chaplain (jump pack, handflamer=yay!, meltabombs)
- Sanguinary Priest (nothing special)
- 5 Sanguinary Guard (Death masks, 2x plasma pistol, 2x inferno pistol)
- 10 Tactical Squad (will be split in two combat squats) with flamer, missile launcher, and a sergeant with power sword and melta bombs
- 5 Death Company (Jump pack, 1 power fist, 1 thunder hammer, 1 infero pistol)
- 5 "Bikes" = Marines on augmented horses
sergeant with power fist, 1x meltagun, 1x plasmagun-- this combination is one of my deadliest with my Plaque Marines!
Together, this gives me 1500 points with only a handful of models....
What do you think?
