*Original Post Follows
This list will play pretty simply, with each unit designed to threaten both light and heavy infantry, and some can hurt a walker in a pinch. The Retaliators, Chaplain, and Dreadnaught will form a spearhead with the tacticals as support. The Librarian will get in where he fits in depending on what power he gets. I am not sure what discipline to give him as I do not know much about them yet. Got any suggestions?
Plans for the second portion are a lot of Iron Hunters and a Huntsmaster. I also really want Valthex in there somewhere...so I may redo the list a bit at some point to fit him in (probably by dropping the libby and swapping a tactical squad with scouts). He is a bit expensive though since I don't have a good unit to use the alchemical rounds (wish I had a 10 man termi unit!).
I will probably be painting Venerable Brother Erish for the month of February but I may switch to Squad Arkash. I started assembling Squad Arkash but will be waiting for the FW heresy armour I ordered to finish them. Heresy armour has always been my favorite and I am stoked to finally get some. They count as Vanguard, but thematicaly they are Retaliators who have been "stealing honors" from their defeated foes, along with ornate pieces of armour and powerful close combat weapons!
In addition I spent some time making ship boarding bases and made rubber molds of the more complicated ones so I can reproduce them. I have never made my own pieces before and I am really excited about them! I put Valthex on a boarding assault base as well, even though he is not on the list I hope to get him painted.
For the Tyrant!
