I said Thousand Sons and I meant it!!

Ok, I have been quietly building up conversion ideas for a pre heresy style Emperor's Children army. I wanted old-school rhinos and Landraiders, I wanted the models to use the beak helmets,and the heads from the FW red scorpions marines. I wanted a veteran squad who used pole-arms....

See Here...http://davetaylorminiatures.blogspot.com/2010/02/bitten-off-more-than-i-can-chew.html

Dave's customer has used literally every idea I had in HIS army...so much for that one...*crumples army list and throws away*.....sigh

Well all is NOT lost. I have been reading A Thousand Sons by Graham McNeil and it has me seriously inspired. Point totals aside here is what I have in my head:

8 termies,
8 T-sons with Sorceror
18 chaos marines, plasma, rocket launcher, icon
9 chaos marines, 2 plasma, icon in rhino
9 chaos marines, 2 plasma, icon in rhino
8 raptors, mark, melta and flamer, champ with fist
3 oblits
FW pre heresy land raider
This should be close to 2000 points, so we'll see. This is really a modeling project with the game stamped onto it, not the other way around.

Return to Badass

Hi everyone. I am holding a return to apoc on February 27th at noon. I am keeping it much smaller this time to retain a bit of my sanity.

5000 points per player
no more than 1 super heavy/gargantuan/titan per player. ((max of 3 structure points and 10 wounds)Drew we will need house rules for the hierophant its TOO sick now)
please have a minimum 40k force organization (1HQ and 2 troops) at the core of your force
Allies allowed if you need to play more than one force to make 5k points
Allies done by the chart in the Apocalypse book, but the final teams may need to be juggled to balance things out
Please bring your list with a point total and details on the day of the game.

Please PM me here if plan on attending, along with what army/armies you are playing. I don't need army lists, just which one you are playing.
