30K Horus Heresy
But the remodeling continues. The family room is about finished. I got to pop in a few outlets and finish the trim. The game room floor is being prep for dry locking.
Why? Because this is the story line and game that hooked me into the GW product line. I started off play Space Marine (2nd Edition) way back in 6th or 7th grade. I have always been drawn to the HH. The black library books in the first few years were the greatest. Everyone was reading and talking about them.
Why Epic? Because it is cheaper. I can have more and a large scale battle will not last 9 hours. Plus the battles are fought out with actual units and not squads.
Of course NetEA will be the base and I will use the Developing HH list found here; Horus Heresy 0.5
Actually 2 HH armies. I found a supplier. Ordered the goodies. Now who will I do. I have plenty of loyalist that only need one or two unit to HH them. My IF or BAs or DAs would work. I have settled on Emperor's Children and World Eaters. The WEs are coming for another supplier.
The 3rd will be done just before the Heresy starts. Too early and the numbers would be restricted as they were rebuilding or tooling about for the Emperor.
The WEs will get the Heresy color scheme. No War Hounds will be present. These will be fun and quick to paint. I have a have started WSs, which will be an easy change over. The rest will come from the hand sculpts done in Italy. Old school plastic rhinos and goodies from the rest of the world.
The blue splashes will make a visualy great presentation on the table.
Again I will be stealing a lot from the old art work. Some of the new stuff is OK, but the older stuff is where the character is .
