I contacted the online shop with the discounted Victrix Cavalry and got a quick reply. Ordered 3 boxes this morning. that'll be the full 36. for the Death Riders Command, ride master and Commissar. Super good price even at 12 bucks shipping the price is a huge savings.
I'll need more green stuff my tubes are finally running out. I have some other stuff I may try but wanted to wait and try it on the Tanks, when they arrive.
Should have enough left for the next 20 Grognards.
I feel like I am over spending on this project but still some how making my savings goals... super weird. I should hear back from my friend about the AoS army sale, one way or the other, next week. He either buys it or not. He wants Giants for AoS but also Orcs. H has trouble making up his mind. He's always starting new projects. Fingers crossed. haha Hope we get the war funds.
I've built the Bolt Action Char 2c and nearly have it painted. Looks way bigger with paint. Still too small. I'm going to mock up my armour plates for the larger tanks ahead of time, if I get around to it. Having a predesigned template is probably the smart thing to do. so we'll see if the brain cells fire in unison or not.
I think I can squeak in the box of WW1 Germans this month. Hadn't planned on the Cavalry so my boxes are out of order but there may be a few weeks wait time..
See I can justify just about anything.
Oh, admin note.
The current Avatar is this man, August Von Makensen.
I found him fairly interesting as a Calvery commander who modernized horse Cav for WW1, which was believed to be obsolete.
Funny enough it was more an introduction of combined arms units more than anything else and had the rest of the powers been paying attention things may have changed early on. (My own speculation based on the positive results of combined arms engagements later in the war.) Very basically he supported the Cav with trucks full of guys and artillery. Easily done in 40K. All of this being such basic ideas in this modern era.
That said Chimeras will be, at some point, introduced to my collection. Hope I stop at 4 or 5. Must keep the size of this collection manageable.....
