So let me start by saying Happy New Year and apologising for my absence over the last month. Christmas is always a busy time of year for me but although I haven’t done any painting it gave me plenty of time to brainstorm.
So the idea...
I played Dark Angels as my 1st army way back in 2nd edition something like 20 years ago and with the new codex on the horizon I wanted to redo them with a twist. The background for the Dark Angels has always interested me, and with that in mind I set about thinking how I could do something different to the standard Deathwing or Ravenwing lists. I feel it is time to do a fallen Angels army. I will go into the background in a bit more detail in a later post but for now that is my initial idea. A fallen army as cool as it would be is still not totally original so I carried on thinking. I have always liked a resilient army and nothing is more resilient than a 2+ save (especially in 6th Ed) so Deathwing is an obvious choice. Having not seen the codex I am making an assumption that Belial will still allow me a full Deathwing army and this combined with the new Deathwing Knights to give me more unit choices will be good fun.
So it is that I will do a Fallenwing army...
Well until the codex comes out I won’t be able to start putting a list together but I have bought myself 25 terminators, and built and sprayed them over the weekend in preparation for list writing. I have however started my test model and thought I would share a work in progress shot of a Fallenwing Terminator, almost done except for basing, any and all comments welcome.
Thats all for now, but I will be back soon reviewing the codex and with new ideas of how to continue my project.
