Hello Forumers, after a 5 year break from the wonderful universe of Warhammer 40k, I am back, and back with a vengeance.
Whilst out shopping during the Christmas break, I stumbled across my local GW in Aberdeen, and, since the GF had dragged me round 5,000 clothes and make up shops, decided to get her back and went inside. After speaking to the Manager, Scott (who is the friendliest guy in the world btw) decided to buy myself a Space Marine battleforce, just to keep me occupied, and maybe start re-integrating myself slowly back into the hobby.
It sat in my living room, still in the bag, for two weeks.
After stumbling upon it once more, I opened it up and looked at the sprues longingly, eyeing up the pieces. Tomorrow, I decided, I would assemble these.
The next day however, I instead decided to look at the Forge World store, to see what they had these days.
2 days later, this arrived...
That is :
2x Red Scorpion Shoulder Pads
1x Red Scorpion Terminator Pads
1x Brass Etch Red Scorpion
1x Red Scorpions Symbols
1x Mk3 Iron Armour (soooo cool)
1x Red Scorpions Veterans Upgrade Pack
1x Red Scorpions Vanguard Veterans
The Battleforce from before
And 2 (yes 2) Severin Loth and retinue
I also bought a Tauros Venator but that doesn't really fit here so meh
I also (a while back now) ordered some of MisterJustins excellent temple theme bases, and have ordered a few more so I actually have something to base these dudes with.
I also went back to GW and along with paints etc, picked up the new SW codex, which is really rather nice, and will base these guys around that.
Theory goes that these guys are from a clan based world much like the Space Wolves are, and as such use a similar force organisation etc etc, but I'll post a fluff thread in the other forum when I can get all my thoughts and theories all typed out.
So, this purpose of this thread is to actually keep me motivated enough to see this through to its end- I've decided I want 2 full companies of White Scorpions.
I'll post up some pics of Severin Loth soon, I have cleaned him up and undercoated him, just need to slap some paint on him and his cronies soon.
Thanks for looking!
