Librarian Nearly Done
So I could not resist working on the librarian. I figure if I have one nice center piece the rest of the army would look better with only three colours. I also put a base coat down on the priest. Not sure how I am going to paint his back pack though.
Over all I'm glad I switched to the Tearers, though I do have some guilt over leaving aside the Eldar. I figure I'll wait until their 5th edition codex comes out before I finish them. No point spending all the time painting them if their army composition changes with the new book. I figure I'll get more enjoyment out of the game if I cut my teeth on a more up to date book. As well, I really dig the Seth model and plan to include him once again when I start building my last 500 points.
If I plan to take Seth then I have to make sure he has a good ride. So I picked up a new Storm Raven kit today. I also acquired a Forge World Dreadnought Chaplin and plan to paint it up for when I start building my list over a thousand points. I figure a Death Company Dreadnought could really tear things up assaulting from the Raven. Move 12", Unload 2", Fleet d6", Assault 6" for a total possible 24" assault range on first turn (not to mention the extra few inches the dreadnought base has). In a dawn of war mission this combo would wreak face. Elect to go second then pounce with the storm raven first turn.
Anyway, everything on target for Saturday.
