So an update on the plans this year:
It doesn't seem like a Chaos Marine update is coming until 2017. That's sad. In the meantime, a lot of my army for them is assembled and painted, so I need a new project. Enter....ROBOTS.
I've always drooled over GW giving us an Adeptus Mechanicus army for 40k. Years of fluff will do that to you. Now, with a new book on the horizon, and new models coming too, and seeing this guy walk by in Force Awakens, I believe it's time.
Another reason is to be on a more even playing field with my girl once she gets her Daemonkin going. Chaos on Chaos is fun but so 2005. It would be a classic match up of guns vs. swords too. From what I read (and researching new armies is too fun) Mechanicus are pretty well liked for not being grossly over the top like some armies.
My only concern is conversions, but I've seen folks get some nice poses and kit bashes out of them, so I'll give it a whirl.
Another thing that draws me to them is the SICK stuff Forgeworld has done lately. I mean, come on, this is freakin' awesome!
Also, another thing to do is to paint up my ruined city terrain and have a worthy board to play on. It's been perpetually grey since I built her years ago.
Time to get to work!
