The Prophet - Chaos Space Marines - Word Bearers

Post by The Prophet » Thu Jun 30, 2011 12:55 am

Hi everyone!

I love these kinds of challenges. This one I will use to complete a lot of things that either has been lying around for too long or has been a thing I wanted to try out when gaming. My list is not a strong one and the Internet will surely cry blood in the case of competitiveness. But I already have a large competitive force of Word Bearers, and this is (though a legal army in itself) a way to add more flavour.

So here it comes, trembling on it's frail legs, my poor Word Bearers:

Headquarters (440)
1 Dark Apostle in Terminator Armour [Abaddon] (275)
1 First Acolyte in Power Armour [Kharn the Believer] (165)

Elites (360)
1 Crazed Dreadnought, Extra Armour, Lascannon/Plasma Cannon, Heavy Flamer. (145)
3 Terminators, 2 Combi-Melta, 1 Reaper, 2 Chainfist, 1 Lighting Claw, Icon of Nurgle. Aspiring Champion. (215)

Troops (470)
5 Berzerker Zealots, Aspiring Champion, Plasma Pistol, Powerfist, Personal Icon. (165)
5 Berzerker Zealots, 2 Plasma Pistols, Aspiring Champion, Power Axe, Personal Icon. (170)
5 Chaos Space Marines, Aspiring Champion, Meltabombs, 1 Meltagun, Icon of Khorne. (135)

Fast Attack (330)
1 Hell Blade (130)
5 Raptors, 2 Meltaguns, Aspiring Champion, Powerfist, Icon of Tzeentch. (200)

Heavy Support (150)
2 Obliterators (150)

Daemons (100)
1 Greater Daemon (100)

400+ pts Word Bearers Sideboard
Secret of the Eightfold Path (750)

Lots of changing, mainly beacause of life getting in the way. Here's the current plan:

July- Obliterators
Aug- Dreadnought
Sept- Both Berzerker Squads
Oct- Dark Apostle
Nov- Base and paint Hell Blade without highlights.

Dec- Build and paint Terminators, finish the Hell Blade.
Jan- Raptors x 5
Feb- CSM x 5
Mar- Contemptor Pattern Dreadnought

I wanted to have Kharn in there but I wan't him in finecast in that case, so I have higher hopes for the Chaos Contemptor to be released before this event is over.

Four of nine months work done, almost half there!

So for the outstart, I plan to convert and paint two old school obliterators. It's an easy start, since I like to take it slow in these warm months. Maybe I will go further, but I cannot promise much.

Edit: So that is my commitment for the month of July, just to be clear.

This is the first time I have seen these models! How big are they in comparison to the current obliterators? (I imagine they are a bit smaller!)

You are right, they are the exact same size as the chaos space marine models. I have no "new" obliterator though so I can only say that they are much smaller. I'm not fond of the current ones, not exactly fond of these either, but I think of these as some messed up servitors that tag along my main army. They will not be the beauties of it though.

Yes, the csm, berzerkers, raptors etc. will all be in the legion colours. The oblits and the greater daemon are becoming a bit different though.

I notice there is very little planned for October/November and no mention in the schedule about the Secret of the Eightfold Path. If I didn't know any better, I'd say you were hiding stuff...

Hehe, actually there is a trip to India and Nepal planned in october and november, so I have thought about this already. There will not be much time for painting then.

The secret is planned for secret occasions as well...

Travelling to India and Nepal just to work on a secret project is true dedication!
