Hi guys, not sure if its the correct sub forum or not as it isnt yet chapter specific (yet!)
Not played 40k for a good few years now, used to play 2nd ed back in the day but for the past few years have been a fluffer reading all the BL HH books and after the annocement of IA HH tipped the balance to make me start again. I want to create a fluffy pre hh army that can also be used for normal 40k.
Seeing as forgeworld do quite a few HH era models I am assuming this will not be phased out or totally replaced by models when the IA HH is released (heres hoping) and I will need a few months to collect and most importantly paint them so want to get a good base of troops ready before IA HH is out (october time iirc?).
I am thinking a core of Corvus Crusade Iron Maximus and Heresey armoured troops, Tartaros terminator armour (Is Indomitus armour the current TDA?) and contemplator dreads, HH era assault troops and thats basically it for now? of course all are FW models. And then theres the armour which bar LR and rhinos i am not decided on what to get yet, maybe some super heavy tanks but of course would only be useful in 30k as they will be chapter colourings
Would be adding jet bikes, battle armoured dreadnoughts primarches and IC and command squads would IA HH is out i think.
Any suggestions as to what else is on the market now that would be good to collect?
Also what wouldnt be used for 40k (i.e tourny style games rather then friendly) contemplator dreads, battle armoured dreads, jet bikes, primarch and whatever IC's they bring out and superheavys and other armour, I will later on add replacement for these i.e current IC's and normal dreads for use in 40k
What suggestions for armour are there both 30k and 40k?
Then theres which chapter to use that can be used for both 30 and 40k, i am currently thinking Raven Guard as the colours havent changed, always had a soft spot for DA's but the black to green is a, well not a massive change but a big enough one in fluff, Opinions please guys?
