Ive gotten to do something that I havent done in quite a while and its a damn shame. I sat down and modeled up a fig for myself. This will be my Belial Hq model that will go with my new Deathwing. I have been going back and forth with what color or how I should paint this Deathwing. A do it yourself successor chapter, a fallen angels army led by Luther, or straight Deathwing, these where all given consideration. What I want to do is paint them the Dark Angels green, but I dont know of any loop holes in the fluff where that would be Kosher. Im not going to paint them like the Fallen because I dont want another Black Army. Even though its what I am going to do, I dont want to really paint them the bone color either. Im doing it because I have all these Dark ANgel bits and I suppose Deathwing will sell quicker when I sell them.
I played a 2000 point game today and got my nuts kicked in by orks. Tactically speaking, I think this army has a lot of potential, but I will get crushed by orks, tyranids, or other horde armies until I learn how to play it better. Also the dice! When playing an elite army, if your dice arent rolling right, its over. Where as a horde or mech list can be a little more forgiving.
