A Tale of One Gamer - Part Five

40k Friday - Here are the results of another round of my 'A Tale of One Gamer' project for August!

This brings me around 1000 points and gives me a battlefield legal force. The Hive Tyrant gives me terrifying combat abilities while the Tyrant Guard will help keep this monster on the table. Though they lost a bit of power in 6th edition, Genestealers are still one of the scariest close combat units around and I'm happy to add them to my army. I've pretty much reached the end of what I had on hand (the Tyrant Guard are my first new purchase for this project). I still have a carnifex kit and a handful of gaunts so going forward they will make up the next round of reinforcements. Not sure what I'll add to make up the rest of my next 500 point goal - off to the store!

I'm planning to play the first game of a mini-campaign in September and will post the results when I can.

More Space Marines next month as I try to get them to 1500 points...

  1. One of the most economical ways of picking up GW figures is to haunt eBay and such looking for badly painted figures . . . they often go for a lot less than unpainted ones . . . true you have to strip them or paint over them, but the price is often quite acceptable . . . just don't get caught up in bidding beyond your lowball limit.
