I have been busy since my last post. My list for Fratris Salutem? (editor help me out here – fixed, nerd) is pretty much locked down. I was actually able to stay away from going unbound. I am using a primary detachment of Chaos Space Marines, an allied detachment of Astra Militarum, and the Fallen formation with Cypher.
Here is how it is breaking down at the moment.
Primary: Chaos Lord – terminator armor chainfist combi plasma (warlord) Chaos Terminators(4) – combi-meltas Chaos Space Marines(10) Chaos Cultists(10)
The force is built for the most part and I have started laying down some paint. I am really excited with how things are coming along. I have some more work to do on the taurox’s but for the most part it is just weathering and detailing. They should be completed in the next week.
In addition I have got the armor down on one squad of alpha legion along with cypher. I really want to push this force to the next level as far as my painting goes. I am trying to focus on strong “realistic” light contrast which has always been a challenge for me. I tend to be afraid to go to dark in my shadows but I am going to bite the bullet and go for it this time.
Work has also begun on the Astra Militarum squads, but the more I look at them the more I think I am going to start over. They are too dark and just don’t have the right feel. It sucks because of the deadline but I think I can bang them out quickly I just need to find the right fit as far as colors go.
The entire army is going to be winter based I hope to have a test base worked up over the weekend. More coming soon I have only about 1 month left including building a display base.
