    pretre reacted to Brother Glacius in New Chaos Marine project   
    The new models have really been calling to me. However, unlike the normal crazy ass collecting I do, this time I want to stay focused and really get just what I need to play. Mostly I play Power Level games and try to stick to typical Match Play organization. However, never used Command Points before. But I'm willing to try and should be able to do I think even using power level point structure. 
    My army is going to be based on the new Daemonkin stuff. Shadowspear ran me through when it came out as it was perfect for what I was drawn to for chaos. My good friend/crack dealer Pretre has set me up with the following:
    Master of Possession
    Warpsmith
    10 CSM
    2 Greater Possessed
    2 Obliterators
    2 Venom Crawlers
    All in all, a really good start to what I want to go forward with. The models are all top notch as well. From there, my selection is based on personal model preference, army theme, and hitting the 100pt power level goal to keep me from going overboard.
    Lord Discordant
    10 more CSM
    5 havocs
    5 terminators
    5 warp talons
    10 deamonettes
    *1 chaos lord OR Noctilith Crown OR 5 Possessed OR 10 Daemonettes
    The final chaos lord was originally chosen because I love the new model. That being said, he's also a 4th HQ which throws things off a bit. A new Noctilith Crown will also give me the 5pts in power level, and still fit with my army theme/design. So that might be a better option?
    For Battleforged, that gives me 3(4) HQ, 3-5 Core, 2(3) Elites, 1 Fast Attack, and 3 Heavy Support. (1 possible Fortification).
    Play wise, I have several daemon units and vehicles to make use of the abilities for both the warp smith and the master of possession.

    Battle Sister Bulletin – Part 11: New Models Sighted!

    With more than ten Battle Sister Bulletins under our belt, we’re starting to ramp things up as the awesome plastic Adepta Sororitas miniatures range continues to take shape. So much so, in fact, that today we’re able to show you not just one, but a whole bunch of new Battle Sisters…
    As you can see, the sculpted suits of power armour that each Battle Sister wears is complemented with a flowing habit and is adorned with purity seals and the symbols of their Order. Considering that Battle Sisters are the line troopers of the Adepta Sororitas army, they very much set the standard of what will follow. Given how stunning each of these miniatures is, it’s fair to say we’re pretty excited to see what the rest of the range will look like!
    Speaking of which, here are another couple of Battle Sisters, this time armed with a storm bolter and flamer respectively…
      Burnt heretic, anyone? What better way is there to decorate the base of a flamer-toting Battle Sister than with the smouldering corpse of an apostate who was no doubt in league with Dark Gods? As you can see most clearly on the Battle Sister equipped with flamer, the habit is lined with studs that can be opened before battle to ensure freedom of movement.
    Now it’s time to check out the unit’s Sister Superior and the bearer of the squad’s Simulacrum Imperialis…
      The Sister Superior is striking a suitably Warhammer pose, with one foot raised on some stones and her chainsword held aloft. Meanwhile, a closer inspection of the Simulacrum Imperialis reveals that the large reliquary is mounted on a wooden haft, complete with grain fibres and nicks from previous battles. Another point of note is that this particular Battle Sister is wearing a helmet – you’ll be pleased to know that each model in the kit can be assembled with or without a full helm.
    As if all of these reveals weren’t already enough, we’ve also got a fully painted miniature from the squad to show you! Remember the first miniature we showed you above? Well, here she is her finished form (this time with a helmet on)…
    Cool, huh? We were so impressed with the result that we spoke to ’Eavy Metal’s Max Faleij about how the team made a start on painting the burgeoning Adepta Sororitas range.
    Max: The colour scheme for the Order of Our Martyred Lady is iconic and striking. I think it’s safe to say that it’s probably one of the first images that come to mind when someone says “Sisters of Battle”. Whenever we revisit classic colour schemes like this, we always want to be really respectful of the original concept and appearance of the models. At the same time, we don’t want to miss any opportunities to refine the colour scheme and bring it up to speed with the current range of miniatures. It just needs to be done in a way where it doesn’t lose the essence of the original.
    The way the new miniatures in the range are being designed also gives even greater insight into what the armour and equipment of the Adepta Sororitas looks like. We tried to describe the different materials using subtle variations in colour – pushing apart the cold black power armour and the warm black leather gloves for example.
    We also gave the boltgun casings a more aged look by mixing Stormhost Silver, Warplock Bronze and some Abaddon Black together to create a metal that’s subtly different from the inner workings of the bolter itself.
    The two-tone red of the habit is something that we really liked in the last rendition of the colour scheme and wanted to keep – not only is it an iconic part of the overall appearance but the two tones also help you read which parts of the model are part of the inner or outer robes.
    Thanks, Max!
    Now that you’ve seen them, we’d love to hear what you think – join the conversation over on Facebook, and if you haven’t already, pick up Celestine, the Living Saint and her Geminae Superia, available in plastic right now!

    I noticed there really is no forum to discuss Ordo. I was looking for the Senate notes from the last meeting because the swap meet was supposed to come up. I didn't find anything and then of course notice there really wasn't any place to ask either. Can we have a General Discussion for all things Ordo related that people can participate in?
