So after finishing my DE, and not needing to add anything to my current O&G or CD army, it must mean only one thing....NEW ARMY TIME!!!!!
But what to do. I am always running army ideas through my head, most are crap, but sometimes one sticks.
As many of you know, I had a heavily converted Slaanesh themed WOC army, that some little maggots nicked from my house. I loved that army, so I think I am going to take what I learned from doing that one...and do the army again! I have some definate conversions in mind, I will go through a few of my ideas here. I will however be waiting for the new book before going balls out with it.
When the new WOC stuff came out, I was not a fan...at all. The warshrine is only good for bits, I have never really been a fan of Khorne stuff, and the marauders on steeds looked very lazy and do not look nice together....BUT, if you take the marauder bits and the steeds as seperate entities, they are really nice models. The steeds I like, and the Marauders are all Slaaneshi and stuff so will be perfect for my army. I will be using the crested helms for my knights and warriors, along with the shields bodies.
Now to me, Slaaneshi warriors and units would look a lot different to the other gods warriors. I would imagine them being very lithe and agile and not as bulky as the others. So what models to use?
I did some surfing on the GW website and come up with a few ideas.
I am going to use phoenix guard for my warriors. With a head swap with the Marauders from the Hellstriders and some greenstuffing and heavy filing I think they could really work.
I like the Chaos knight models, but again they are too bulky for my needs, enter the Dragon Princes. I have heaps of spare chaos bits, so I reckon the will chaosify pretty well.
The marauder horsemen are one of my favourite GW kits, so they will stay as the are.
I am still not sure what I will do for normal foot marauders, but I will prob wait for the new book to see if they are woth taking or not.
So if anyone is planning on getting the new Hellstriders, please let me know so I can bribe you to get some bits off ya!!
