Goatboy here again with another shot of 40k business. Today I want to chat a bit about what I like the most about this game – the conversions.
I know a lot of commentors think I just live in the land of math and money but I really would rather spend a day converting and building over hours of tedious duels of spreadsheet armies. Don’t get me wrong – I enjoy the fight of dice but my true heart lives in gluing the crap out of my fingers and figured out odd ways to rebuild my anti heroes.
We had an awesome bit of leakage last week with the Warriors of Chaos stuff. I know a lot of you could two shakes of a donkey’s tail about Fantasy but I have always left a soft place in my tiny evil goat heart for those line dancing mutha effers. Will this make me start a new army? Probably as I got a local buddy who keeps harping on me to try fantasy. I am in the conversion phase of my Chaos army so I really don’t expect buying new models for that so I need some to tide me over as I wait for Demons (and Orks).
Now don’t get me wrong I am stilling thinking of horrible lists but the new codex doesn’t interest my wallet nor does it want drive me to math it up in a battle of dice superiority. I am sure the other blogs, bathroom wall scratching, and internet forums will have enough info to help you figure out how to best use your green/red/blue cheap marines.
Here are my initial conversion thoughts with the upcoming models. Again these are my initial pings of inspiration. I will start with what I think are the HQ pieces. I think most are plastic with a few bits of Finecast. I do know that the newer Finecast models (ie models they made to use it instead of just trying to reuse the Metal making molds) look a lot better. I have had less issues with them beyond some bendy pieces. I do hate those bendy pieces.
