I know, it's a bit early, but a man can think
I've some things left to get/to do, but its on the horizon that I'm able to "finish" my current armies.
That is AdMech and Custodes. Still stuff to do naturally, but there's a chance!
That got me thinking - what would be next? Simply so that if I stumble over a very good deal I can grab it to add to the pile for when I really start it up.
After selling off my Dark Angels and picking up AdMech and Custodes, I'm pretty sure I want do do something non-imperial.Definately not something SM
Im not that big a fan of chaos (although that could be a project for the next after the next...) so I already could narrow it down to a xenos army.
And there are surprisingly few of them!
Aeldari of all kinds are not my style, model and lore wise. That the line is, in some parts, just decrepit doesnt help either. Plus I already have Harlequins and DE
in my local group.
Tau - while I watch some anime, I'm not that big into the suits. I also know not THAT much about then. They also overlap heavily with the Admech as a very, very shooty oriented army.
is a bit rough around the edges - I dont dig the mining aesthetic. Pun intended.
Orks - I'm not that much into conversions. Or rather - I am bad at it. Really bad. I manage some magnets, but beyond that my skills are... limited. Which is the primary drive for orks to me.
That leaves my basically only with 2 options:
Crons and Nids.
Nids are kinda interesting. They differ largely from anything I have, in playstyle and painting. Vallejos Colour Shift paints also sound like a brilliant idea to make them insecoid and contrast paints let you knock out that organic look quick and easy. Con is that there's not that much lore to get attached too - plus we already have some Nids in the meta. Being the red headed stepchild of GW
also is a negative - I feel like there is a refresh coming down the line and getting into it right now feels like a questionable choice.
Crons are my current favourite. Lots of lore, no local cron player, awesome models (I mean just look at the Doomstalker thing.. thats really something!), C'Than (especially the Void Dragon as an AdMech player), wit Indomitus there's a ot
of cheap stuff floating around... But then, they are just like AdMech and Custodes lots of metalics. And like AdMech, they're primarily shooting, although with the line refresh those new destroyers look like they can tear gak up. But it feels like a good time to delve into Crons with all those new models.
So theres pros and cons for both sides and I have a hard time deciding...
