Wow, sure has been a while since I've posted anything here...or worked on anything important to my Army List!
So, with the almost-certain releases of Tau and/or Chaos around the corner, I've decided to pick my most intact army (Chaos) and enact Operation "Finish That Fething Army"! In all honestly...I've been playing 40k sing right before 5th Edition came out, and the closest thing I ever had to a finished army was my original Purple & Brown Tau army. Well, I'm going to do everything in my power to finish the Iron Suns BEFORE the codex comes out! Though, that may take longer than I'd like now that Warsmith Miniatures put up their "Space Crusader" (AKA True-scale) conversion sets on Pre-order
...I'd like to gear up my entire army with those, but that'll take a while concerning the costs! So, for now, I'll settle on the weedy default legs and Chaos Warrior ones when I can afford them.
The first step in Operations FTFA was to finally complete my only incomplete troops choice and my only 25mm-based Heavy Support choices-which, respectively, are a squad of Chaos marines w/ champion, icon, plasmagun, lascannon and a squad of havocs w/ champ, icon, and 4 missile launchers. (Please note that the fellow in grey primer in the Havoc squad photo is a placeholder; the Icon bearer has really bad whit eprimer fuzz and is taking a bath in purple power.)
As you can see, the Chaos Marine squad is far more aggressively posed, the front line ready to take on and repel enemy advances (As they have in the past, and certainly will again in the future!) so that the icon bearer can guide in Obliterator support, the lascannon-wielder providing cover fire against vehicles, large creatures, or any poor sap stupid enough to leave himself exposed.
On the other hand, the Havoc team is more stoicly-posed, firmly-footed warriors ready to crack enemy armor or rain shrapnel upon exposed infantry while their bolter-wielding allies provide cover fire, a small team operating an remote-controlled missile system, allowing them to take cover from any retribution the enemy wishes to try dealing upon them, their Champion brandishing his chainaxe proudly. (If you haven't noticed, Chainaxes are sort of becoming a theme for my champions as status symbols.)
And-...wait a minute, what could THIS be?
