Ok guys as you will have read previously I have started a Warhammer 40,000 project!!! I am doing an Tyrants Legion for the Astral Claws – a mix of Imperial Guard and Space Marines. I have a couple of cool ideas and themes running through the force, there will be parts from a lot of different manufacturers including Anvil Industry and Forge World to name but a few!
I have sat at home with my list for 500pts written and last week managed to paint the HQ Choice & Troop Choice 1. I am however awaiting delivery of some parts from Forge World, It has taken them over a week to acknowledge my order and 2 phone calls to find out why the order hasn’t progressed……”the Astral Claws shoulder pads are out of stock and wont be back in stock until 22/6/12″ and to top things off my order is at the back end of the orders! They have since agreed to split the order and post what they have in stock, so any day now I will get my Exterminator turret and will be able to paint the Heavy Support Choice for the 500pts army. This is in comparison of an order from Anvil Industry which arrived the very next day!!!
So the army so far (listed in their current state):
Before I get into that I think it is only fair to point out that I am painting up some extra pieces to allow me to tweak the list or play bigger games!
Troop 1 – Auxilia Squad – painted
Troop 2 – Space Marine Cohort Squad – Part Assembled (awaiting Forge World)
Troop 3 – Auxilia Armsmen Cadre – Assembled (not in 500pts)
Troop 3 Dedicated Transport – Chimera – Painted (not in 500pts)
Elites 1 – Venerable Dreadnought – Painted (not in 500pts)
Heavy 1 – Vindicator – Painted (not in 500pts)
So while I have been working on this I get a message in the Portal Wargaming Facebook Group with a link to the 2nd 6th Edition Teaser from Games Workshop which I have shared below:
