Great to see some White Scars again. Fluff-wise one of my favourite founding chapters for sure. Consider this thread followed. ;)

All infiltration Stratagems got nerfed to being scout Stratagems. Free 9" move instead of free >9" deployment anywhere on the battlefield now. This is in line with the complete removal of turn 1 reserves.

@sfPanzer thank you! And thank you for your clarification of rules!

One other question; what of character rules like Lias issodons infiltration rule? Up to 3 units popping out anywhere from hiding?

Infiltration abilities on Datasheets are unchanged. Scouts, Stealth Suits and so on can still infiltrate as before.

@sfpanzer thank you!

I’ll have my raven guard-army, my red scorpions-project and these white scars. I’m suffering from flu at the moment but will try to finish my scout bikers and my primaris lieutenant.

Left to paint and build is:

Kor’sarro khan on bike
5 man bike veterans
2 assault squads w jp
5 veterans w jp
Some scout squads (but painting them in black muted colors, to be able to use them as RG and I see no point in having sneaky scouts infiltrating enemy territory wearing stark white armour - doomed to fail)

Spending my time split between Iron Hands and white scars. Time to focus a few weeks on white scars so i can get the Army done any time soon and battle with them!

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)

Warhammer 40,000+ Star Wars- Rian Johnson- Reylo= AWESOME! (Knights of Renaissance)

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

I am impressed by the number of threads you're running, friend.

 

The bikers are looking good, I think some red markings would finish them off and add some interesting visual draws.

😀 yes ive infested several threads. My running projects: white scars, iron hands, dark angels and salamanders.

Projects abandoned to save my sanity (and to have a chance of completing the 1500 p of each army): blood angels, raven guard, iron warriors, carcharodons Astra

😀 the problem is that so many chapters appeal to me. Sometimes it’s enough to read a great novel to plant the idea of building a new army....

But now I’m forcing myself to only focus on white scars and iron hands.

A massively weathered vanguard veteran. I’m not sure the whole army will look like this because of the time invested, but I figured that an close combat squad would look more banged up.

To hell with that weathering. Don’t have time to do that to every single marine. Inspiration from another white scar-thread got me focused to this:

Ohh yes, the red panels look just right, help to draw the eye and break up the white.

 

I know just what you mean regarding projects, a few years back I had lots of projects running but none of a size big enough to game with, so I resolved to just keeping my marines (of both allegiances) and selling off everything else. I now have enough to run small games with my Iron Tenth and Slaanesh renegades, however the a Word Bearers project is looming, with the associated militia, daemons and Dark Mechanicum eagerly waiting in the wings... It's a struggle, eh? msn-wink.gif

😀 thank you! Yes it’s a struggle! I don’t know why that happens really, a few months ago I had blood angels, dark angels, raven guard, carcharodons, salamanders, Astra militarum.

But nothing I could play with really. I needed to reallly think what I should do with this hobby since it overwhelmed me. The result is iron hands (since I like them and love Dreadnoughts) and white scars (since I like the whole idea behind fast moving forces). I keep my dark angels as a primaris force backed up by my 1500 p ravenwing

I also keep Astra militarum as a project later on 😀

Worked a bit on the scars tonight. Basecoated and shaded a Vanguard veteran squad and company veterans on bikes. And did some things with the comp veterans on foot. Markings need to be sharpened.

I hear you mate, though be warned, having a future project in mind is how it all starts again... rolleyesclean.gif

 

Scars are continuing to look sharp with the individual markings.

Guns have started to appear, some more work on the vanguards and started on the bikes.

Yeah i know....😀 something starting as a little thought ”hmm how about a small detachment, Nothing more than 750 points” all of a sudden there is a half-painted 2500 p Army 😀

The bikes look much more interesting with the red.  Are you planning on adding any of the Forgeworld White Scars upgrades, or more chapter specific bits and pieces, I think they've got some really characterful pieces. Perhaps the Deathwatch Scar as a commander?

Got two threads open at the minute - Slaanesh renegades at Blades of Perfection (down in the Chaos forum) and then a more general WiP, Loyalty and Mayhem. I'm on a slight break at the minute due to an exchange year, but might be picking things back up at Christmas, which could see my Iron Tenth getting a log too.
