What has started as a single model and its base decoration is slowly growing in my mind as I write this post...possibly becoming a theme for a 30kish army (cataphractii terminators and such).
The Night Lords have taken over an industrial planet (hive like and whatnot), using their well know terror tactics and speed to devastate the spires.
Fortunately, the First Legion is in the subsector and they dispatch a strike force of their First Company to burn the heretics.
This will be my first FW model and since I've not absolutely no hurry with the project, I'd like to go the extra mile or two.
I suck at drawing/photoshop/graphic arts, so you'll have to bear with my description skills!
The first idea is to floor the whole base with fallen NL corpses (3-5 bodies, depending on the final disposition). That per se would be OK...but we said we wanted to go further right?
A character is still alive and will climb over his comrades' bodies to face the holy sarcophagus!!
The Dread is armed with heavy flamer and DCCW, because I simply love the looks of the particular combination.
So a few questions arise:
- would you use a regular PA marine for the character or one of the DV chaos sets? what model?
- and the casualties? the DV seems a bit OOT for the base...
I'll try and post pictures of a WIP evolution, but at this stage any theme and concept suggestions are most welcome.
