40K: Sternguard Veterans & Plague Marines
With all the new Space Marines goodies coming out I couldn't resist adding a new squad to my army. After much deliberation I bought a box of the new Sternguard Veterans. It's a really great box with lots and lots of extra pieces that you won't be able to use on this squad alone, but will be great for blinging up a lot of other squads in your army. It's still a little bit overpriced, but the models are nice.
I've also got my hands on the new Codex: Space Marines, which I'm very, very, impressed with. It's the best codex I've ever seen (and I have quite an extensive collection) The background section really looks at the space marines as a whole for the first time and the new rules are interesting as well, I love the idea of chapter tactics and need to decide which of the first founding chapters my chapter will be descended from.
I've also finished a squad of 6 plague marines for my chaos space marine army. These are older versions of the models I think and the squad comes with two plasma guns. I've been a bit scared of painting them, but I think they've come out OK in the end. These are also the first non-Alpha Legion troops in my chaos space marine army.
