As a added bonus to ending a hard week's work, my GW order was ready for collection. I now have sitting in front of me all the components needed to finish the first 1500pts of Minotaur Space Marines, all that remains now is to build and paint. Scary thing is, I have not even touched this lot and I am already plotting more purchases!
The photo shows pretty clearly what I have gone for: Predators, Rhinos and Drop pods. Nothing ground breaking or original really, but at least it fits the ethos of the Minotaurs having a strong Predator presence. The Scouts are there to give me a third troops choice and the obligatory Telion clone will be added to the unit naturally. I just now managed to win a Sevrin Loth figure and once that arrives, the army will truly be complete. I am currently weighing up the idea of grabbing a airbrush to do the armour units quickly but even if I do, it will still be some three weeks until all this is built as I am fully booked for work.
It is however very satisfying to have a 'full' army in the works as it has been some time since I have had a Warhammer 40,000 army at all (World Eaters of Khorne 3rd Ed?) and the prospect of gaming with fully painted miniatures is a great feeling.
All that remains now, is turn these boxes into painted boxes!
