Hey everyone,

 

as the ETL VII is starting soon, I plan to restart my hobby life. I have a whole bunch of unpainted miniatures. The reason is that I suffer from Hobby ADHD. I have always great conversion ideas (at least I think so) but I cannot keep my focus long enough to paint an army.

After some friends assured me of their support (e.g. painting nights) and a purchase ban from my girlfriend* I plan to paint some models for ETL VII. Also I will use this thread to post my other projects. The question is which faction should I choose for ETL? Below you will find the factions in question. I hope you can help me to decide for one army.

  • 3rd Company of the Ultramarines (to boost my old force with some new Primaris and BobbyG)
  • Chaos Space Marines (a mix of new Word Bearers, Death Guard and my Iron Warriors)
  • Orks (because green is mean )
  • or a completely new army with the Primaris content of Shadowspear

Should I pledge for the Imperium and add the already primed Primaris Marines and BobbyG to my old Ultramarines force? But the Space Marines have already a big base of participants.

 

The Chaos Space Marines are already set and I can pledge quite some points for the ETL to paint and this faction could give the loyalists a run for their money. Also the different colour schemes might keep my focus/motivation on painting.

 

Orks are always a fun army and although their 8ed rules are not as much fun as the old ones but I still like this army. I can also provide some points for them, especially through some conversions. Unfortunately I am not so sure how much conversion is really allowed for ETL and scratch building (what every Ork player loves) is banned. Also it would involve to paint a lot of green skin.wacko.png

 

The last option would be to start with a complete new army. It would consist mainly from the contents of the Vanguard force. The new army would represent my new start into the painting part of the hobby and I need to build the models till the 1st June to start painting them.

I hope you can help me to decide for an army. Below are some models for the armies in question:

 

Here are the models I built for Tempus Beli and some Death Guard:

Now for my Orks a Squiggoth, some "Bikers" and a Morkanaut:

Chaos, clearly, Not just because of our supportive community, winning record and superlative dancing skills, but because the Gods smile on all who complete their vows, and as the good Captain's video said, failure is not an option. Join us!

Hey deRome90, good to see the ETL reigniting you enthusiasm for the hobby!

Now the Orks I see there are quite a departure from the originals. Although we encourage conversions, if the converted product is materially smaller or more simplified than the original, and in order to be fair with someone who’s actually going to do the original, there might be a points penalty in your choice.

If you opt to go for Orks, we can discuss this in detail via PM but I thought I’d let you know early on in the process. Personally I’d rather you go for Orks penalty or not. :)

@Dragonlover: Well I can't dance, so that point might be not really valid... but maybe you guys could teach me some chaotic tricks msn-wink.gif

 

@Captain Semper: I still have half a month of preparation left, so I might prepare some conversions and send them to you via PM. Then you could give me the OK before I make a vow, would that be alright?

I would suggest CSM, for I know that "hobby ADHD" feeling and think you will have it easiest with the spiky ones. Having different Legions to choose from - plus varied daemons and whatnot - means you have many options for different conversions and paint schemes while still working on "one project".

As some might noticed, I choose to take the side of Chaos during the upcoming ETL. Currently I am working on some scratch build Deathshroud (they will be recognizable, but I will send Cap. Semper a picture of them, to ask if they are allowed).
I am still thinking how I should split my vows and need your help.

 

Built (partly primed):
Daemon Prince with wings, and a Warp Bolter (if flaming skulls count as Warp Bolter)

Dark Apostle with Plasma pistol (if I'm right this would be legit due to the Index, otherwise I need to cut of his arm or demote him to a Chaos Lord)

Master of Execution

Master of Possession

2 Greater Possessed

2x5 Possessed

2 Obliterators

Malignant Plaguecaster

Lord of Contagion

9 Plague Marines

Biologus Putrifier

Helbrute with Twin Lascannon

Noxious Blightbringer

Foetid Bloat-drone with 2 Plaguespitters

Chaos Rhino

Myphitic Blight Hauler

 

WIP:

2x5 Chaos Space Marines

5 Warp Talons

1 Obliterator

3 Deathshroud conversions

 

 

Planned:

10 Fallen

Cypher

Sorcerer

5 Terminators

5 Plague Marines

 

If we exclude the planned stuff, how would you split the vows?
