|Some Medusan Immortals for the 10th Legion - loyalist troops for 30k gaming.|
|Bionic arm visible for the trooper on the right...meanwhile the fellow on the left is going action-movie-style...one arm with the bolt gun, shield down...|
|A lot of character and detail on these fantastic sculpts...I loved painting them.|
|For the sergeant I swapped in an officer's head from a Mark III power armour suit.|
The level of bionic replacement is consistent with the background of the 10th Legion - supposedly noted for their near-mechanicum-level familiarity and favour of technology. It could also be meant to show the "failure" that led the Legionnaire to join the ranks of the Immortals in the first place involved heavy battle damage...sounds like a rough gig!
|Flamer-armed legionnaire ready to support his fellow Immortals.|
The figures also have lots of spare ammo clips and grenades attached - overall, they are a menacing sort of forlorn hope. I really liked these figures, and I'm glad I have another 10 to paint.
|Graviton gun can be seen on the trooper in the middle...|
|The Siege of Terra begins with "The Solar War" by John French...|
But hey - we all have different things we like, so I still encourage you to check out the novel. It will help inspire 30k and 40k painting if nothing else!
I do sort of wonder why GW doesn't have any other Siege of Terra stuff out to accompany this book though...nothing special from Forgeworld, or another Horus Heresy box game...like, the Siege of Terra is THE penultimate moment of the Horus Heresy...that should be a bigger deal. GW is strangely siloed, it seems...why would you have a box game for the stupid Ultramarines, but no game for the actual Seige of Terra?
Hey, wait, there is something new coming for Adeptus Titanicus! Oh, wait...just more Knights...
But GW has released something else kind big this summer...
New Edition of Apocalypse
|Some new rules from GW to contemplate...|
Thanks for visiting - I hope everyone is having a great summer, wherever you are!
|A sunset at the cabin...have a great summer, everyone!|
