Hey everyone!

 

Going to be using this post to post updates and help myself keep a general layout of what is involved with this project. Decided to switch to 4th company. I like the badge better.

 

Models: Incoming & Built

 

Built Models:

 

4th Company:

 

HQ - Captain + Combi-Plasma & Relic Blade

 

TROOP - Tactical Squads Alfa + Plasma Cannon + Plasma Gun + Plasma Pistol & Thunder Hammer (Sgt) + Bolter x2

 

Incoming Models:

Tactial Squad Bravo - Foxtrox (Purchased)

 

Need to Buy List:

Devatator Squad x4 (To get two Devatator squads with four plasma cannons each. This will help setup other builds as well)

Assault Squad x4 (Need to get two 10 man assault squads loaded with plasma pistols Squad Alfa will be jump pack and Bravo will be on foot)

Rhino/Razorback x10 (According to the company lore every squad has a Rhino and Razorback available to them. I will just purchase Razorbacks and see if I can just swap out the top to get the Rhino)

 

 

Models from Other Companies

 

HQ - Librarian on Bike + Force Sword & Combi-Plasma

Trying to decide how I want to setup my Sgts in my dev and tactical squads. I know I want two of the Sgts in the tactical squads to have Thunder Hammers. One is already modeled as such. But the other 8 Sgts(4 tactical, 2 dev, 2 assault) I'm not sure about. I know that one assault squad will have jump packs and one will not. All squads will be full strength, 10-man, and have as many bells and whistles I can put on them.

 

Now that I look at the assault squads again... I'm thinking of loading them out like the following

 

Assault Squad (10 man)

Plasma Pistol & Thunder Hammer (Sgt)

Eviscerator x2

Chainsword + Plasma Pistol x2

Chainsword + Bolt Pistol x5

So, after several life changing events I've picked up the hobby again. Going to be working a few projects and bouncing between them so that I don't get bored of painting one scheme. I've found I need to mix things up when I'm painting for me to keep working on projects. I will be working on the armies in my signature over time. Currently I'm working on painting up one of my Dark Angels Masters and two Argent Fist Lieutenants. I have plans to start up Aeronautica when Space Marines get their release. But I am not sure if they will be Dark Angels or Argent Fists just yet. 

 

Anyway, I'll work on keeping this post updated as I work on my Dark Angels. I currently have about 60 old-boy tactical marines from the Dark Angels starter box from several years ago to work on, some bikers and terminators for the Dark Angels. I will be sticking to the Tacticals until they are all done though.

 

Let the painting begin!!!
