Hi guys, just for a bit of context: I have an EC, SoH and IF army. All three more or less fleshed-out the way I want to. During Xmas time, I saw a great ebay listing with the following (all unpainted and brand new):
2 x red books (Crusade List and Legion List)
5 x cataphractii with double claws
5 x cataphractii with chainfist and combibolters
1 x Calth cataphractii praetor
10 x assembled marines with missile launchers (no glued pauldrons or head)
10 x assembled marines with meltas (no glued pauldrons or head)
20 x assembled marines with bolters (no glued pauldrons or head)
20 x marines on sprue (full sprues)
4 x boxes of ForgeWorld Salamanders pauldrons
Guy bought a few BaC boxes with the intent of doing a salamanders army, changed his mind, sold all of the above for quite cheap (40% discount more or less). So I snagged it up.
Since then, I've been debating what to do with them. I want to do an Iron Warriors army, but this requires mainly Mk3 iron armour if I want to be thematic and fluffy. I'm open to most legions but it has to be fluffy and somehow fun to play. I'm not a competitive player at all, I want to play with army lists that have credibility story-wise. So that being said, I thought about what armies (that I don't already own) that had mainly Mk4: UM, RG, AL, WB, Sallies, etc.
I'm torn, I don't know what to do and/or which legion to start. Sallies make sense but I just find them unappealing color-scheme wise and rules wise. What would you guys do? Curious to hear your opinions and ideas. Thanks in advance!
