Hi everyone...... new blog for a new army.
Whilst the Black Legion’s painting remains on the back burner pending my injury’s repair, I decided to use the time following the op to plan my own army.
Firstly I set myself some objectives....
1/ It had to be small enabling me to go to town on some conversions,
2/ it had to be different and fluffy,
3/ it had to be either a Blood Angel or Ork army.
As I played around with various idea’s and army lists I realised that some of the above objectives presented a few problems in themselves!
I continued to play around with the codex’s and finally settled on an idea and as I’m now posting in the Xenos section you guessed, Orks won.............. well sort of!
The idea I went with in the end was to use Ork’s or more precisely Stormboyz as a Blood Angel proxy army.
It ticked all my boxes and whilst not perhaps the most competitive would certainly be a lot of fun to build, paint and play!! Fluff wise it seemed to fit as Storm boyz are supposedly the most disciplined and regimented of orks and sport better equipment thus supporting my reasoning for the increased BA stats.
Now the army......
My force centres around a Stormboy Warboss (Astorath), who having witnessed first hand the destructive power of the Death Company decides to mimic them. He enlists the services of a friendly Mek and sets about salvaging any BA armour he can recover from battlefields.
After years of toil he finally takes to the sky’s supported by his lead Nob (Lemartes) 2 squads of stormboyz, a Salvaged storm Raven with a Kan (DC Dread) and a flight of speeders ( 1 land speeder and two typhoons) equates to about 1500 points!
Well that’s the army and thought process behind it.... tomorrow the pics!!!
