Things have started, explained in post 8 or so.
I've taken almost a year away from 40K and have yet to decide if i want to get back in or not. I didn't sell my collections but I am looking for something to get me excited gain. I played Am/IG off and on over 6 edition but sold off all of my Am collection, I had way too many models and couldn't keep up with them. It had really stressed me out as I has so much I couldn't actually use it.
But here we go again, maybe.
Right now I am looking at the Les Grognards kit. I like the look and for the price could have a large army assembled in not time.
I am trying to decide just what to put into the army to get the most bang for the buck.
So this is wish listing on my part.
Right now I am thinking that I don't want a lot of vehicles as I don't enjoy painting them and my previous collection was stuffed full of them.
So maybe a few artillery vehicles but I am thinking majority infantry. But I am also thinking about a Knight or two to keep the vehicle count low and because I have never built or painted any Imperial Knights before. I might even be open to allies from Mars just because they are models I have never built and painted before.
The problem i am looking at is currently this line of mini's has no heavy weapons or cross compatible minis I could use with GW heavy weapons to make HW teams although Cadian missile launchers may be a possibility. And thinking about it now mortars may be possible as well. I will also have to shop around for bits to assemble officers, banners and staff.
Each kit has 24 mini's in it. How much of a poor choice is it to field an army build around mostly lasrifles and bayonets?
Aside from the time t will take to roll that many shots?
As far as regiments I am not sure which regiment this army will represent on the table.
The only other thing I am considering is rough rider squads is anyone using those anymore?
It's early days still I have only been thinking about this for a week or so. I saw these models on FB in the INQ28 group and had to find out more about those mini's.
A day later I stumbled across this video.
Any input would be helpful starting a new army is a big decision and I'd be glad to get your opinions.
