I know, army list madness...
I promise some pretty pics soon though! Got my Scouts and Dreadnaught in Dj's studio for some WIP shots =]
Btw, for those that haven't heard... Imperial Fists novel! Looking forward to having one in my hands and getting all inspired for my Fists! =] Never heard of the author but the cover artwork is rad =] gotta love Scouts in yellow! =P
Here's a prelim 1000 pts army list for my Imperial Fists. Its not entirely in theme yet (really hard to manage with smaller SM lists but the 1500 and 2000 pts lists will be closer to what I want) =]
In the end I think I want to have an Ordo Xenos Librarian with a "Deathwatch" Sternguard Veterans unit.
Sorta theming it as Ordo Xenos has requisitioned a detachment from the Imperial Fists 5th Company to aid in a Xenos threat campaign (fortifying their command points etc). Figured it could be fun and lets me fiddle around with some cool conversions. Initial list doesn't reflect this theme at all but its units I want to take and gives me something playable in the meanwhile =]
Assault Terminator Squad
Additional Scouts (x5)
Combat Blade (x2)
Additional Marines (x5)
Land Speeder Storm
Assault marine squad is not quite something I'm all too happy with in the army as it's quite points heavy and mostly useless unless it's a 10-man unit. Shouldn't take too long to build up and paint considering it's only 44 models compared to the 80 odd in my guard =P
Pics of my scouts and dread, along with my painting recipes will be up shortly =]
Dj and I are working on our respective marine armies and should have the 1000 pts completed and table ready by Feb 1, 2010! Keep a look out for our game and pics of teh completed Imperial Fists and Ultramarines armies together on the table top!
As always, comments and suggestions to the list are most welcome =] especially from any experienced marine players as this is my first marine army!
