Like many, I've seen the pictures of the minis to be released with the 6th edition starter set. And like many, I have drooled. Since I would use all of them, I am seriously keen to get my grubby mitts on the set when it comes out. In the meantime, I have the monumental task of figuring out what I have available to build this army. I have around 60 forgeworld chaos militia torsos, most of which are already married to Cadian legs. I have a unit of "veterans" I converted years ago, with beastman parts (more on them later- and their 're-conversion') I also have 40 plague rats and 40 of these-Cool looking heads ... so here's a doodle I came up with.
Still trying to decide the place these critters will take. Guard "regulars"? Penal troops? Dare I say.... veterans? Working with the obliterator-like weapon from the flesh kind of thing, the only limitation is what I'm willing to convert. Conscripts are out- because I need some zombies. I have 60 of the forgeworld militia, so I figure they could be one platoon of regulars. Maybe these guys are another platoon. Next post will be the re-converted veterans (I already did a headswap and I'm not sure I like it) and hopefully the prototype of this little guy.
I also got a nice little envelope from a new friend in Warsaw, Poland to realize another project I've been wanting to do for a very long time. It has something to do with Meso-American cultures....and the grimdark of 40k. I get chills just thinking of it.... and a headache thinking of all the converting. I'm starting to believe I do have ADHD, can't do one project at a time.
