|With 6th ed finally here, I may need a Work Bench this big...|
So besides the CSM and Daemon models I need to paint up I am also considering an Aegis Defense line for the list. Flyers are a big problem in 6th. Not problem as in "ZOMG, Flyers are broken and OP and the Sky Is Falling, ZOMG"; but a problem as in you need to be prepared to deal with them. No big deal in terms of game play, and thankfully no big deal in terms of modeling for me. I bought the big Planetstrike set with 2 Bastions and a bunch of Aegis Defense lines almost 2 years ago. So I have 2 bastions built, a bunch of walls cut out and ready for painting and all the bits necessary for the lascannon or autocannon emplacements. Should be easy to get done in time for the 14th. So let's take a quick look at some of the models I am currently painting for my CSMs. I have always been fascinated with the Dark Angels and the Fallen and so I am going to be making a small portion of my CSM project for 6th fallen Dark Angels.
My other big 6th project, besides the CSMs which will definitely be revisited in a few months when the new codex drops, and the terrain, is Necrons. I am convinced that the list I have made for Necrons is simply speaking a beast. No allies or fortifications in this list by the way but it will utilize some Night Scythes. I have been loving the idea of the Night Scythe since the codex came out but the lack of a model for so long and then the impending changes due in 6th made me hold off on Necrons. Now that the book is here and I have read all the amazing rules and played a few games I am committed to a Necron Army. So much so that I have even started designing the Battle Foam case and foam for it! I have the 2 Annihilation Barges and 24 Warriors that will be required, now the only question is if I can acquire the rest of the models quickly enough to get the army built and painted to be a relevant tournament army for me in 6th or if it will end up getting the back burner treatment when the CSM codex arrives. I have high hopes for this army paint scheme being quick so fingers crossed! When I get some more done on the CSMs and break out my Daemons to paint I will post some more pictures.
