    There are several companies that have pretty nifty Tsons looking heads. If I were so inclined to re-make my Chaos army I'd go with the Tsons or with Word Bearers. Or better yet, a pre-heresy Tsons color scheme.

    I thought about Word Bearers also.

  • Anon the FelonAnon the Felon In bat country.Registered User regular
    Pre-heresy, the Word Bearers are probably my favorite legion. Logar and his boys really define zealotry.

  • valhalla130valhalla130 Od's blood Sailing a longshipRegistered User regular
    That and loldemons is why I would go Word Bearers. But I like the idea of empty suits of armor magically animated to kill. I can't seem to google any TSons heads. Who makes them? I found one set from Puppet Wars that look like bird heads.

    I knew a dude that casted stuff and sold it on ebay. They were pretty baller heads for tsons.

    I fleshed out the concept. I will write it up and add some additional "in-character" stuff tomorrow morning, as I will be off work and working on 40k stuff. I'll post it :)

    I do have the start of a Necron army. I was very lucky again this year for Secret Santa and recieved about 1k points of Necrons. I will be expanding on that army as we work on and go through this campaign :)

    The following people are amazing and I love them: Wildcat, Timspork, Kias, Denada, susan, Sharp101, [GHSC]Ryctor, Matev, Matrias, ItBurns, Slapnuts, Dayspring, see317, and the unknown poster that sent me a box of Death Company! <3 If you get them as Santees you should buy them amazing things!

    This happens for maybe the first month or so of going to a store here in Australia. Then you pretty much know everyone who goes there. Then you either just play people again, or try a different store.

    So I decided I didn't like the idea of a computer panel blocking what is supposed to be an access hatch in my Land Raider interior. So I ordered an extra set of interior doors and another computer panel/tool area. I figure I'll put the tools and computer screens in the hatch where my sponsons are and then the two interior doors where the side access hatches go. Then I realize I'm spending all this time working on stuff that will be almost impossible to see once everything is put together.

    We are still working on nailing down all of the details of our campaign, but so far we know a couple of things. In order to breakup monotony (BA vs SW every single game would get old quick... Also, we have played that matchup so many times that I know what Altmann is going to bring, he knows what I am going to bring, and often times we know exactly how the game is going to end up by turn 3 :P) So, we decided that we would each have two armies that take part in the campaign. Altmann, of course, has SW and IG. As most of you know, I play a little bit of everything. BA primarily, and recently I’ve got plans to start a Necron army. Seeing as how none of you silly geese would ever let me live down a pairing of Necron / BA, I decided to play Necrons and Chaos and be the pure “bad guys.” I realized after awhile though, that if I did that, I would be behind on both of those armies, as I still need quite a bit for both. So, I decided to go double necrons, with the following ideas:

    One army will be lead by Anrakyr the Traveller. He will be searching for lost Tomb Worlds, as is his purpose, and as I conquer territory and earn resources, the units I add to my army will be explained by that premise. This army will include all manner of units. His story goes that as he frees or awakens tomb worlds, they are to give him a tithe of supplies and troops. His army is a small one that is constantly in need of reinforcements, so I don’t imagine he is very picky about what units he is given control of. This will allow me to play test a lot of different combinations and still have it make perfect sense.

    My second army will be lead by Nemesor Zahndrekh and Vargard Obyron. Zahndrekh is, of course, the Lord who is malfunctioning and sees all as Necrontyr during the War of Secession before the Great Sleep. He adheres strictly to the codes of honorable war that the Necrontyr used to adhere to. This places restrictions on army lists to remain fluffy (no Deathmarks or Assassins. Zahndrekh has three legions of Lychguard, so they make sense to add in, Praetorians adhere to the ancient codes, so they make sense also. That time was also the height of the C’tan so they would make sense here too). This style of army will play differently from the first army, which is a good thing.

    So, as far as the campaign goes, we have tossed around a couple of ideas:

    1. Starting escalation up from Kill Team to 1500.

    Anrakyr’s army will start as scouting forces looking for tomb worlds he can rescue. Praetorians loyal to Anrakyr, possibly. Maybe Wraiths that are defending the Tomb that the Imperium has stumbled upon unknowingly... the ensuing battles attract Anrakyr’s attention from a nearby planet/system to protect the newly found tomb world. Maybe he sends his Pyrrhain Eternals ahead of him to clear the way.

    Zahndrekh’s army is a little tougher, as there is nothing fluffy that sticks out with his story for scouting forces. Could use the tomb world defense force angle as well, using Tomb Blades instead of Wraiths. Lychguard or Praetorians would work here also. Maybe just a standard unit of warriors or immortals.

    2. Possibly working in a way that we can challenge one person’s first army against that person’s second army. For example, Altmann may be able to force Anrakyr’s army against Zahndrekh’s army. He would then control one and I would control the other. This may be harder as I build up my necron army, but if it is something we implement, it would be explained as such:

    Anrakyr, in his travels, comes across Zahndrekh’s armies. Anrakyr, thinking it is his responsibility to unite all the Tomb Worlds, demands Zahndrekh’s loyalty and commitment to his cause. Zahndrekh sees another rebellious Necrontyr army seeking to conquer his dynasty, and refuses. They, of course, will do battle as they are both 100% programmed this way.

    3. Possibly working toward an Apoc sized game with each of us controlling both of our armies.

    Currently have two story options. 1) Vargard Obyron is able to keep Zahndrekh from interacting with Anrakyr personally, and organizes an alliance behind Zahndrekh’s back, as he often does to clean up the messes caused by Zahndrekh’s malfunction. 2) Anrakyr and Obyron together are able to figure out a way to repair Zahndrekh’s malfunction.

    It sounds like this thread will be 70% Thousand Sons when the new Chaos codex hits. Count me in on that, Thousand Sons is one of the things that drew me into 40k. If they get their own themed army I will be all over that.

    I recently got back in to playing 40k and back in fourth edition I was a necron player. I recently picked up the new codex and noticed a change with the Monolith. I have a couple of questions regarding the eternity gate.

    First, can I use both its troop deployment and its portal of exile in the same turn? Troop deployment in movement phase and the portal of exile in shooting? Second, if I use the portal of exile in the shooting phase am I still able to fire the particle whip and the gauss weapons?

    EDIT: Forgot to ask, units that use the Monolith to deploy do they use the regular disembarking rules? Thanks.
