228 Surprising Discovery

Hi All,

Just a quickie...

I was idly pondering my sprawling mass of Imperial Guard in the shower this morning, and I came to a startling conclusion: I could - if I wanted to - field ALL of my main units* in just two legal FOC army lists!

Please note that (A) this requires my Armoured Fist platoon to act as chimera-vets: something I'm toying with to allow others to spar against mech-Guard at the club; and (B) the second (blue) detachment comprises almost wholly original or converted 'classic' models. The hydra is an exception*.
...and here's the painting chart as it stands at the mo:

- Drax.

*NB: I own everything on there, now, apart from the manticore, which I'm thinking of getting next...although "next" won't be for a while yet. Obviously that won't be a 'classic' model unless I convert it...


  1. Time to start a Chaos Marine army methinks? LOL.

    Getting back in the flow over at PAthfinder ... batrep up and running!

  2. Idly pondering in the shower can impair your vision and is probably illegal in several American States.

  3. Aw, come on, John: we all need our morning routines!

  4. You know what those lists really need? Titan support.

    Hey, I'm just sayin'....

  5. Titan?

    Jeez, guys: I can't even justify spending the money on a pot of paint at the moment!

    I don't think I'll be able to justify another purchase til at least Christmas: either a manticore or a valk. Probably the former.

    But I'd better pay the bloomin' council tax first, eh?

  6. That's an unbelievable amount of models.

  7. Thanks, Ron. And yes...yes it is. Especially for someone who doesn't nuch like painting infantry...


  8. "I was idly pondering my sprawling mass of Imperial Guard in the shower this morning, and I came to a startling conclusion..."

    My first thought was, 'what was your sprawling mass of IG doing in the shower this morning...'. But then I just realized that I was not reading correctly, likely due to too many late nights playing Civ V. My hobby is suffering. By that I mean that the hobby I choose to indulge in which is 40k is suffering, not that I make a hobby of suffering.

  9. Good work Drax! I'm still amazed that you've got such a large army all painted and ready to go. I'm very, very jealous :P


Thanks for taking the time to comment!
