(Quick note: If this is the wrong forum for this, I apologise, but it didn't seem to fit into the Army List forum either so erred on the side of the forum that more often has pretty pictures...)
So like most of us, I've decided to embark upon a 30k army project, mostly due to my regular gaming group already working one several of their own. We currently have a player with a Salamanders and Emperors Children army, a player with Loyalist Death Guard, and a player with Traitor Death Guard. My choice for my first Legion was pretty much a no brainer for me - the IVth. What can I say, Storm of iron was my first 40k novel and I loved it!
Anyway, with a nice hefty preorder placed which will be picked up this weekend, I figured it would be nice to try to attempt to chart my progress through such an endeavour. My idea was to create the 30k version of my current IW army, a splinter forge that dwelled within a spacehulk known as the Sin of Logic. The result is the Truth of Logic Project, which will be effectively me building an army to represent the kind of force on would find on a Space Marine cruiser. So yes, Zone Mortalis will be involved at some point. In that far, far, faaaaar future though...
Moving on! Thanks to the lovely folks on these very boards, I have some idea of what the Iron Warriors have, so my preorder for Salute included not only Book 3: Extermination, but also:
- A Mk3 Command set
- A Legion Squad Power Weapon pack
- The 30 Legion Tactical Squad bundle (split to form a 20 man unit and a ten man unit respectively)
- 25 Breachers (to make a full 20 man unit, and leave me some spares to equip my characters with boarding shields)
- Mk3 Command Upgrade (for the Breachers)
These will provide me with 1 HQ and 3 troops, which is the minimum Force Org. required to run the Hammer of Olympia RoW. Said HQ being a siege breaker of course. Gotta love those phosphex bombs! I am mainly intending to use Mk3 and Mk2 armour throughout the army, to represent being relatively low on the priority list when it comes to being issues new equipment. I'll also probably add a Mechanicum contingent sometime in the future to represent the forces maintaining the engines and other systems of the Truth of Logic.
For now, that's all sadly, but I'll be sure to post an update once I have all the shiny goodies in my grip after this weekend!
