I recently got the new daemon prince. I personally did not like it at first, because to me it looked a little too "cartoonish". That all changed once i finally got my hands on one. Knowing that alot of people who bought the model are just using the standard model, i just couldnt resist converting it into my favorite character in the 40k universe: Angron, Primarch of the World Eaters. It is heavily converted to look exactly like the artwork above. Actually, im almost finished painting it so expect pictures in a few days. Also, anyone going to the tournament next week can see it there too!

Lets just say someone (not me) who had a mostly assault army (berzerkers mostly), needed to replace a unit (defiler-150pts) in order to get some sort of unit that has access to heavy firepower...
They have access to meltaguns, plasmas, flamers etc.. and can infiltrate or outflank (it may mean the same thing but i dont remember). It is an effective unit, especialy since the list that they have is a more straightfoward army. Having outflanking chosen with meltas would really make the opponent have to divert their forces.
Obviously their great, but since the person(not me)only have 150 pts to spend, that will only give him/her 2. Not enough in my opinion since they get killed by strength 8 and 9 weapons fairly easy.
They dont really carry much besides combi meltas and heavy flamers, but they can definatly turn the game around if used right.
remember, they ony have 150 points to spend..
So what do you guys think is better? Is there a unit i missed? This person really needs help!

After talking to UltraBob about the list i was going to use for the tournament , i realized that even though the old list with was effective.. against the current "competitve" armys that are being used(space wolves,blood angels,imperial guard), it is lacking some well needed firepower. So i came up with this. I really want to try this one out. If successful, i will be using it in the tournament. I havent played against space wolves yet so their first on my list.
(6)CSM (champ w/pfist, icon of chaos glory, meltagun)+rhino w/extra armour-200
(5) noise marines(4 sonic blasters)-120
(3)terminators(icon of glory,2 combi meltas, heavy flamer-115
(6) oblits (2 squads of 3)-450
Definatley not as simple as the other list. I gave abaddon 3 terminators to accompany him in the landraider. Since majority of my units arent fearless, giving them icon of chaos glory is almost a must. The last thing i want is to have my troops get massacred in assault. The oblits are definatly a plus. The noise marines were really just to fill up the extra points. It also dosent hurt that they are fearless and initiative 5. They will probably just sit on the closest objective, or accompany another unit.
** The list is a little diffrent now but i wont keep editing the same post**

8berzerkers(champ w/pfist,2 plasma pistols) rhino w/ extra armour, combi melta-298
dred w/ccw, twin linked las, extra armour-140
defiler w/ 2ccw-150
landraider w/ d.possesion-240
*Abaddon rides solo in the land raider
Now thinking about it, the dreadnought wasnt really a mvp in any of my practice games. It was a good distraction though! What should i do? If i replace it, it will probably be with 3 deepstriking terminators with combi meltas. Keep? change? thoughts?

Here is my first set of marines with some yellow paint. It took me about 10 minutes to paint them all. I sprayed white krylon primer and just used a watered down golden yellow for a clean finish. i was going to wash them with badab black to make them dirty, but since this is pre heresy, i figured that they were fairly new.I Still have alot of work to do on them . There not detailed so i have to do that and their done. I have the arms but they are not assembled. Thanks to BCJ i have alot of cool old school weapons, like shoulder mounted plasma cannon and lascannons to keep the old school feel to them. One problem im having though is when i primed some of the models with the white primer, some would get a frosty look to them. Does anyone know how to solve or prevent that problem?
As of now i have 35 marines, 3 terminators a whole bunch of pre heresy bits ,and Dorn. I decided to lower my goal from 100 space marines to 50 so that i can have room for some tanks. As for bases, im using left over jawabases that i had from a while ago.
.. and this is my first commision. Its a squad of 10 black templar terminators with forge world parts added, they are very detailed and i have to get them done by october.
Hopefully i will have Rogal Dorn painted by next week
