Shopping trip

Holy crap, did I spend money today.

The Enclave are going to have a field day when all this stuff is done. I just need to figure out how I'm using all of this stuff.

Today I got: Chapter master, 5 terminators, 2 scouts, 2 mechaniks (I'm thinking either just character models or tech servitors) 11 tactical marines.

The terminators will go to finishing off the Tactical Terminators squad (rounding it off to 10 men)

The tactical marines will go to the other two tactical squads, the remainder, I'm not sure about. Maybe make a 4th? We'll see.

The scouts were just too great of a deal to pass up, I'm not sure if I'll use them for anything.

The mechaniks (warmachine khador to be specific) are going to be examples of my Enclave's divergence from other vanilla chapters. Basically, because they are short staffed, any potential marines who show significant prowess in non-military things (medicine, machinery, etc) become specialists. They still get military training but provide a niche service to the chapter instead of waging war.

The small dilemma is; I now have two chapter masters for the SAME chapter. One in artificier armour, one in terminator. I'll probably use the artificier one more, the new codex doesn't actually LET me make the terminator model be WYSIWYG.

Anywho, I hate this time of year. Birthday sucked, my birthday dinner has been put off three times now. I think if I want to go have a birthday dinner, I'll have to go walk to the nearest restaraunt and buy it myself.

I'll try to get some work done on the army this week, and maybe even snap a few photos of a finished squad.

  1. You could use the Terminator dude as a 1st company captain and call him the chapter's 2iC.

    Sorry to hear about the sucky birthday - happy belated birthday!
