Excellent work on the Tempestus Scions.

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

 

Reasons to use the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think the Librarian Dreadnought needs Furious Charge AND It Will Not Die to beat down a Chaos-worshiping punk and his Defiler, while a Stormraven needs a Vanquisher cannon to beat down this punk's Heldrake.

The Scions look great!

I especially like the Plasmagun conversions, good job!

Thanks comrades, the plasma conversion isn't a huge amount of work overall and I can improve for next time. Not sure when or if that'll be, I'm wondering about volley guns next but I'm not sure. The hotshot profile is decent, but you can get pretty much the same from the grunts so it may be better to use the special weapon slots for something, well, special :P

I've had nothing but good experiences with my HSVG's. 4 STR 4 ap -2 shots per Scion can worry a good variety of units. If you're running pure Scions, they're great objective holders too given their *cough* Long range *cough*

Yes, range is a bit of an issue (especially in KT) so that's a bonus. I have plenty of Stormies to build so I'll get round to a couple I expect as they do look cool. I always thought about them being nice to put in a Command Squad, but that's probably not the best idea as they'd be easily removed.

The stormies look great! I really like the plasma conversions. As mentioned before, I may borrow that idea...

My first army was pure scions and I tend to run volleyguns relatively often. On paper it doesn't look amazing but the s4 is really nice. The volleygun command squad is fun too. My opponents tend to ignore them in favor of taking out a plasma squad and they can really reach out and touch someone. The high volume of fire seems to help with thinning hordes too - something scions can struggle with if they skew towards too much plasma. Just a thought!

Thanks! I plan on getting the Stormies together for a pure force at smaller points eventually - I think I have enough models too. The HSVG will definitely make an appearance there as a bit more shooting plus I'll need some units to deploy on the table to start with.

 

I'm focusing on clearing my current projects at the moment, that'll be a couple of Chaos units that have languished half done now. After that there's five more Stormies I've started that will also need completing on my grand quest for Project 0, so I might not be that far away from a small Stormie list smile.png
