Oh, I'm so excited about finishing it! How long has it been... I can't remember, but it's been a long journey anyway.
But observe; this morning I finished what I thought would be a member of the Sagodjur Fjorlag honour guard, the "morbid seven", using a WHFB chaos warrior as a base and the most classic pieces of equipment I could find.
A terminator pauldron on the one side and a vanguard veteran's on the other gives him a much more imposing silhouette that what I'm used to-- and I'm very happy with it indeed.
But it got me thinking, what if I made every one of my space marines like this?
|Bigger in general than my existing Astartes...|
|...much larger than the mortals...|
|... and quite literally towering over the fire warrior who I made several months ago and is still unpainted.|
So this I have decided; I will have two forces. One is the "gaming pieces" where I will use thunderfire cannons and terminator squads and all manner of wargear the chapter canonically cannot use, and the "canon pieces", using the warriors of chaos.
