View Full Version : to have jump packs or not have jump packs

ok all i need help deciding. My captain for my newest incarnation of my blood angels army can be seen in my avatar, i'm also hoping to start a plog soon! but in the meantime i figured i would throw a poll out there to see what everyone thinks. From a mechanics point of view i'd prefer a JP but i don't know if it fits the model aesthetically.

Try a Raptor jump pack.

How about some wings of some description that count as a jump pack (ala Sanguinius)?

Or the backpack off of Celestine.

i may go for the raptor or the maxmini ones but i have to stay away from the wings because in my opinion sanguinius had the wings and he was one of a kind. it would make an awesome conversion but i can't bring myself to do it. I was thinking of borrowing dantes or perhaps shrikes. on that same note unless the models are utterly astounding i wont be fielding the winged "exalted" that are rumoured to be in the coming Blood Angels codex.

The way it sounds they are winged jump packs, like some of the ork packs or Buzz Lightyear. No idea until more pics show up though.

interesting... maybe i'll have to wait and see what the new packs look like...

Ravenguard Captain Shrike uses a Jump Pack with the Raven Talons (Rending Lightning Claws)

Aesthetically, go with what looks good

I think even a regular jump pack would look fine.

Personally, I'd carefully remove the current one and blue tack both and take pictures, and look at them regularly for a week or so before trying to decide. Decisions like that I tend to think over for a while.

I always go for looks over gaming ability as I'm not a tournament player. If you are the same, try both and go with the looks. A cool model will perform better because you want it to, and are therfore more heroic with it.
