so my pledge for the event, is to complete a force of the Szarekhan Dynasty for the painting event, containing the following:

 

Overlord [6 PL]
Skorpekh Lord [7 PL]
5 Immortals with Gauss Blasters [4 PL]
5 Immortals with Gauss Blasters [4 PL]
10 Necron Warriors with Gauss Reapers [6 PL]
3 Skorpekh Destroyers [4 PL]

+ 1 Plasmacyte [1 PL]
3 Canoptek Scarab Swarms [2 PL]
3 Ophydian Destroyers [4 PL]

+ 1 Plasmacyte [1 PL]
3 Tomb Blades [4 PL]
Doom Scythe [9 PL]

 

++ Total: [52 PL] ++

 

and to finish off 10 Necron Warriors with Gauss Flayers [6 PL]

and 1 of 2 Cryptothralls [1of2 PL]

 

neither of which, i am counting, since they are partly completed units already.

And as of writing this, my progress is thus:

So while i await the painting event to kick off proper, i started fiddling with list ideas on what i want to play with to start learning the army, using what i got so far.  Which quickly lead me to realize i will want to buy another box of destroyers of some variety to fill out Incursion sized games.  I'm thinking probably the skorpekhs, since that seems to be the go-to unit people choose from what i've read so far.

 

but in the mean time, this is what i'm thinking of using.  the local meta uses a fair bit of terrain, as we hold to the old 5th edition concept that you completely cover a table quarter with terrain, and then that's what you spread across the entire board.  As for the armies i'd face, i havent had a chance to play anyone since covid started, so im out of touch on that front.

 

++ Battalion Detachment [47 PL, 6CP, 993pts] ++

Dynasty Choice: Szarekhan Dynasty

+ HQ +

Overlord [6 PL, 110pts]: Relic: Sempiternal Weave, Voidscythe, Warlord, Warlord Trait (Szarekhan): The Triarch's Will

Royal Warden [4 PL, 75pts]

Skorpekh Lord [7 PL, 130pts]

+ Troops +

Immortals [4 PL, 85pts]: Gauss Blaster, 5x Immortal

Immortals [4 PL, 85pts]: Gauss Blaster, 5x Immortal

Necron Warriors [6 PL, 130pts]: Gauss Reaper, 10x Necron Warrior

+ Elites +

Skorpekh Destroyers [4 PL, 90pts]: 3x Skorpekh Destroyer

+ Fast Attack +

Canoptek Scarab Swarms [4 PL, 90pts]: Feeder Mandibles, 6x Canoptek Scarab Swarm

 

Ophydian Destroyers [4 PL, 90pts]: 3x Ophydian Destroyer

Tomb Blades [4 PL, 108pts]: 3x Tomb Blade: Nebuloscope, Shieldvanes, Twin Gauss Blaster
 

 

Now, i'm not set on the Szarekhan Dynasty, it's just the overall paint scheme i picked cause i liked the box art.  Though planning out how i'm gonna paint them, i'm thinking i'm going to alter the scheme somewhat and paint shoulders metallic green, with the skorpekh 'feet' the same green.  Maybe all the heads as well, haven't decided that part yet.  This way, i can have an area on the model all those fancy decals they came with can be used and actually show up on the paint.  So with that in mind, i might change to using custom dynasty rules, as im not so sure a 5+ for MW is even gonna be necessary in the local meta.
