The time is nearly upon us for the new edition to be released next week. For the majority of those who haven’t got the rule book/codex faction yet, the wait is almost over.
The fact that this new edition will run similar to the AoS Generals handbook (but not a copy and paste rule set thankfully) is what made me want to play 40k again.
My first two games of 40k way back in 6th edition wasn’t interesting enough for me to invest into the game. I found the rules to be meh, as well as Chaos Space marines not having an interesting model range to really invest into an army of the Deathguard legion or the Word Bearers legion. However, since the Deathguard legion will be included in the new starter box with new plastic models, it might intrigue me enough to dig up my old Chaos Space marine army from the garden compost heap (jk).
Anyways, let’s get down to the main point of this post, today I wanted to show you guys my current progress on my Black Templars army. Since there’s only a week left until 8th ed is released, I’ve been focusing more on my Black Templars collection to get as much done as possible before I play them at my local GW. I wanted to play a fully painted army, as I’m not satisfied with a half painted army to play. Hopefully I can get all the models shown on this post today done by the end of the month.
Here’s what I’ve done so far for painting and building my collection, as well as two new additions to the collection.
Last time I showed this model was during it’s built plastic stage. Now however, I’ve been painting it all this week, so far looking amazing. Although it’s WIP, so there’s still tons of painting to do.
The newest addition to the army, the Land Raider Crusader will be my troop transporter for my Crusader squad and Chaplin. I’m really looking forward to painting this mega tank fortress once my Stormhawk Interceptor is completed!
My second addition to the army is the Chaplin of the crusade, he’ll be leading his fellow Crusader squad to the front lines with devoted beollows of faith. Not sure what to name him yet, but I’m planning on including him to my crusade company’s current lore story. His involvement with Sorvans decision on taking the Primaris Space marines into the company will be very important.
A small squad of the Sisters of Silence will be joining Sorvans company as a null affect for any psykic attack made by the enemy. The relation between the sisters and the Darkstar crusade company is very strong, as they both have strong ties of loyalty to the Emperor of mankind.
My plan now is to continue painting the Stormhawk Interceptor to be completed before Tuesday. Then I’ll spray paint my Chaplin, Land Raider Crusader and my Crusader squad. Finally, the Crusader squad will be painted next on my project progress.
That’s all from me for now, I hope you guys have enjoyed this update post, and hopefully I’ll see next time for part 6! Goodnight/Good day.
