Now you might think that spending cash on upgrade pieces would show my commitment to the project and to a great degree it does. But I needed those parts to get in the mail so I could get going and ship times from the UK to Australia during Christmas time are always a problem. Now though... I am at a crossroads. Do I stay the course regardless of rules and stick with the World Eaters? I am thinking so but as rumours of the other rules in the book trickle out of GW, I am starting to doubt my plans.
Do the World Eater rules look bad... Hell NO!!! Let's take a look.
Apparently WE forces must take the Mark of Khorne, Berserkers are troops, and there is a rule that gives models fearless and furious charge plus lots of other rules including a free run at the start of the game. I will admit I am rusty at my GW rumour finding so many of these could be wrong. The consensus is though that World Eaters are bad ass. Cool.
So what is wrong? Weellllllllll... I also love Noise Marines. A LOT! As you can see here.
The Emperor's Children rules not only give models a base 6+ Feel No Pain rule but they also give noise weapons a better strength and the shred rules. This does not fix some of the range issues that the sonic blasters have but a couple of units of noise marines would be awesome objective grabbers. Plus the Forge World Noise Marine models look fantastic.
I guess I am going to have to wait until the weekend to see the actual Legion rules before I 100% commit. That said I am 85% in the World Eater camp...
I guess, I should work on 32mm scenic bases in the meantime? Hmmm... Time to buy some cork sheets.
