After a substantial hiatus, I've been inspired by the beautiful new Chaos minis to get back into the hobby! I'll be building and painting up a force of one of my renegade Chapters, the Black Hammers - http://www.bolterand...s/#entry5327341
I've recently picked up my first squad for the project, a box of the new Chaos TDA, which has tied in perfectly with the start of the ETL, leading to the following vow:
I, Lysimachus, rise to the challenge of E TENEBRAE LUX on the side of the Black Hammers Renegade Chapter and to the glory of Malal* and vow to complete a unit of 5 Chaos Terminators of total value 214pts on or before September 1st, 2019. Success will bring me eternal glory and failure will doom me to wear the Badge of the Oathbreaker until the year-end.
(Maybe my completed vows should count against the Forum total??? )
The squad is built to be fluffy/semi-competitive, with 4 combi-plasmas plus a reaper AC (should complement the plas reasonably well, but more for rule-of-cool!). CC weapons are also meant to be a mix of effective/cool, with 2 chain axes, a chain fist and power fist and a LC on the unit Champ.
As a side point, I managed to get one extra combi-plasma bit but had to make two more from my bits box, using the plas attachment from the Tac squad combi-weapon for one and a cut down Sternguard combi-plasma for the other, plus some GS to tie them in. I'm quite happy with how they look next to the original!
I also needed a second chain axe, which again I managed to get the bit, but I wanted to make the two axes a touch more individual. So I trimmed off the rear blade and pommel icon and replaced them with some bits from the power axe from the TDA box, again I'm fairly happy with the look:
Anyway, that's it for now, here's hoping I get on ok with the painting!!! Any and all C+C is always welcome, and thanks for reading!
