Hi all and welcome to our PLOG. Over the next couple of months myself and three friends will be documenting our attempt to create four 1000 point armies for the new edition of 40k. The plan is to eventually expand the armies beyond 1000 points but to begin with we want to focus our efforts on achieving a fully painted and based 1000 point army.
My friends will be along shortly to introduce themselves and their armies, but it falls to me to kick things off. I plan to build a 1000 point Sons of Orar 2nd Company army using the following 1000 point army list :-
2 x 10 man tactical squads
2 x Razorbacks
1 x Dreadnaught
1 x Predator
I've built and painted a test model, what do you think?
And I've started work on the first tactical squad "Tactical Squad Capaneus"
Brother Sergeant Capaneus is arguably the most skilled swordsman in the 2nd Company, although some maintain that this honour belongs to Brother Hecaterus, the 2nd's Company Champion. Where Hecaterus is noble, wise and well loved, Capaneus is spiteful and bitter, but no less deadly for it. Indeed it is told that his skill with the sword is matched only by his own arrogance. If it were not for Capaneus' deriding attitude it is likely he would now be fighting alongside the honoured veterans in the Second Company Command Squad, an observation that continues to sting Capaneus like a thorn in his side. Capaneus is well aware of the contempt in which many of his brothers regard him and it is perhaps in spite of this that Capaneus continues to lead his squad with an air of superiority and disdain. In truth it cannot be denied that Capaneus is a gifted warrior and leader, and his squad is often called upon to spearhead the most brutal and deadly of missions.
As you can see I've mixed some Forgeworld MKIV armour in there as I've noticed the Sons of Orar seem to favour this mark. (Sorry one of the pics is upside down d'oh)
And as a final pic for this post, here's a sneak peak of a space marine objective marker I've been working on, built using one of the space marine casualty models and a some recycled bits from an old space marine standard bearer. I quite like the bullet holes in the banner which are inspired by the "Dawn of War" PC game intro video I took two pictures with and without the flash as I wasn't sure if the pictures above were too dark or not? Oh I've just noticed the banner looks 'wonky'. That's because it's only blu tac'd on and had come loose whilst I was taking the photo (d'oh again)
That's it from me for now, hopefully my Imperial ally and my Orkish nemesis's's will be along with some of their own progress soon
