Title: Starting a new army for 2009?
blackcell8 - December 19, 2008 09:00 AM (GMT)
Any army in paticular? Remember that Orks are getting new stuff, Imperial Guard, Dark Eldar, Necrons and Space Wolves are slated for releases this year.
For me, its Orks, got around 1000 points now, but I haven't really 'started' them yet, nothings painted, no games played with them yet. Although Daemons have been tempting...
Insane Psychopath - December 19, 2008 09:19 AM (GMT)
- Daemon will get done by next week
- Orks, come x-mas & 27th Dec time I should have everthing for my 1500pts force for time being. Going to be Mech just to get them built & Painted, then in the future aim to have that least one of each unit.
- Iron Hands, second favrout force. Got lot idea, be my thrid time collecting Iron Hands & got a great deal background :D Start this army around start of Jan
- Mk2 Storm Trooper, when the new Guard codex come out I will be making a Mk2 of my Mech Strom Trooper from scratch with new plastic Storm Troopers.
After that we'll see.

I will be working agaon on my orks seems liek 2009 will be one hell of a year to get that done, I'll finish off my last chaos projects I have for the IW and then it's on to the green tide, I will try however to also get started on my renegade milita.

Guard I suspect, although it will more likely be an expansion on my IA5/6 renegade armies rather than pure guard.
Hoping that the new IG codex is overly powered as I have a tough enough task dealing with them currently let alone if they suddenly have an extra 50 bodies on the table..

I don't really plan on starting a new army yet, but I think I'd go for a Space Marine army.
Lord of Rebirth - December 21, 2008 05:15 AM (GMT)
I voted Eldar even though I technically "restarted" the army in later 06. It's not likely to be playable in normal games for a while since the only troop units I'm going to go with any time soon would be wraithguard when they give me plastics or 6 full squads of Dire avengers in wave serpents and I'm not ready to buy 6 battle forces at the moment.
The big thing is I want get my two Nightwings and one of my Revenants done by the end of 09 and maybe a second Revenant if I can handle it.

chaos - mainly cuz i'm tired of having my 8k+ of unfinished iron warriors sitting in a case doing nothing. so i'm splitting some them off to make a renegade warband. may make them a splinter of iw but not sure yet.
Grand Warmaster Pinto - December 23, 2008 06:11 PM (GMT)
I'd start IG and give them a paint job like the IW troopers from Storm of Iron, plus the Guard are getting all their new stuff soon.

O.k. been a member here but never visited or posted :(
its a New year,so some new changes are in order...
New army= Ironwarriors :bionic !
i purchased the rebirthed "storm of iron"novel with the funky new cover :thumb:
and that incredible artwork was a driving factor for my army,i always loved the iron warriors gritty no nonsense colors and the hazard striping is a way cool contrast to the boltgun primary color(and with the new washes a good iron look is soooo easy to establish quickly)
so this year sees a new army of iron warriors dedicated to the book "storm of iron" and is being led by forrix himself(before the warhound encounter -_- )
i hope to post up my wip's and finished product in these here hallowed halls,
i invite you all to encourage and advise me on this journey of discovering -
"IRON WITHIN,IRON WITHOUT"

That me sorted some project out for 2009 being
Daemons - Finish, though it not the list I would like. I will add onto my Daemon when I have time, mainly when the second wave come out (not really hear much on it). But for time being there fully painted & been gaming.
Iron Hands - Just started, change my list from the first week of the army. All I need is 3x more Dreadnought (out of five) & another three Drop Pods. You can see my project log over on Bolter & Chainswords.
After that going to take a little break from new armies & try buy some case to store my armies in as well as finish off other project being: Orks!!!, WFB Chaos to be a stand in player army for my gaming club tournament. Also might give my spray gun a try on the Undead army I have.
Imperial Guards - I'll be making a Mk2 Storm Trooper force as soon as the plastic once have been release. Not sure if it will be a flyer army or a Mech army. Lot idea will come from George Dellapina Guards from the White Dwarf.
Iron Warriors - Be back to my good old IW for the UKGT & another tournament. Got a few new conversion but not that much as there not. Not really change my list as I am happy with how it dose in games & any changies ether gose against the IW background for me or against the style my army fight in.
Nids - Been wanting to collect Nids for a while, just open another model & painting project. Be half & half force of Nidzilla & small nids. See what I can get up. See UK White Dwarf 308 for the sort stuff I want to aim for.
As much as it shame me to say this, I been thinking of starting a Eldar army near the end of the year. But that only IF I get a paint I like & a list I like. Just inspired by my friend Pete Foly Eldar from WD Tale of four gamer's. Also to learn about our eneimes we have to use there skills :lol:
I would like to build the two ship I have bought almost a year ago for my BFG IW Fleet.
I would like to get a Necromunda gang made
Finial... Epic hit my local store in gaming.... I played that games once year ago but really enjoy it & be pretty cool.... hummm!!!! Maybe the Iron Warriors 5th Grand Company can battle it out :D

I'll be taking my guard off of the shelf and working on them, especially if all the rumers I've heard about the new guard codex are true.
mercer - January 23, 2009 11:47 AM (GMT)
Your going to love this! I'm starting a Imperial Fist army! Specially for my Iron Warriors to slap around :)
Loki - January 25, 2009 05:23 PM (GMT)
In addition to build up my 45th grand company, I'll add a traitor Armoured tank Company to my ironclad lads. I originally planned a Dark Mechanicus Catapracthii artillery company, but since I had a leman russ gathering dust on my shelf, I decided to go with a traitor armoured tank company instead... only need to buy 7-8 different leman russ variants and chaosify them... :rolleyes:
Besides the project mentioned above, I've been inpsired ...err, more likely CHALLANGED... by a fellow 40K player to begin my take on a traitor Warlord. So this year will also see the rise of a pretty foamcard-based Warlord with lots of additional pieces from various boxed sets, including cities of death and zombie regiments...
All in all, 2009 is the year the 45th grand company ascends to "wish-list" tournament army, a allied Traitor Armoured tank Company sides with them, and the Dominus Ex Ferrum finally gets represented on the battletop.
Cheers, Loki :thumb:

Finally some progress on your warlord project, seemsl ike 2009 will hold a lot of cool new projects.
Rustygunz - January 26, 2009 04:55 PM (GMT)
Dark Eldar for me. The little buggers are finally getting an overhaul, and I can't bloody wait. Dark Elf and Dark Eldar have always been my favorite Warhammer races, and now that '09 is here with a whole new codex, it's gonna be a whole bunch of sadistic, torture-y goodness....
Insane Psychopath - February 15, 2009 08:33 PM (GMT)
Little bit of random talk :D & get some idea out of my head.
That my Iron Hands fully painted, started the project on Dec 28th & finish it on 8th Feb. However made a little change to my list to fit in some the new Sternguards.
Not bad when I been busy with a commission for model making.
Now currently working on a Deathwing army (need a army to fit into one case) which will be finish in four week time come Fri. While same time I will also have my Warriors of Chaos army to fully paint in six week time due to being a stand in player for my wargaming club tournament on the 4th April.
I think I manger to sort out what armies I wish to collect... as to getting them done for 2009 a diffrent story.
Right now armies I'd like to collect are
- Eldar, be good on the painting front & gaming front, so might start these in March/as soon as my Deathwing finish
Start around March try finish this army by mid May, then go to my Iron Warriors for the UKGT
- Imperial Guards, I have a army I bought while working for GW all built & waiting to be use. Stop useing them due to spray gun not being out that the time & got board, but new codex I might bring them out. However I would preffer to have a Storm Trooper force mounted in Valkiries (sp?) supported by Ratling sniper (have you seen the new models, check warseer)
Buy new codex on 2nd of May (or sooner) along with a few boxies, try make a 1500pts army out of the stuff I have (& try get them painted :lol )
- Necron, don't care if the new codex is out sooner or later. Just inspired by the Necron army won UKGT heat 1 07 best painted army. Also be a nice challenge to do somthing cool for Necron to make them stand out.
Not sure when I will start them??
- Space Wolves, everone like Space Wolves, there the cool Imperial guy who take no rubbish from anyone & fight for what they belive to be right. Also one of the most/best armies for converting, second only to the might Chaos Space Marines IMO. Also what cooler than Viking in the future/space.
Depend the codex release & how many people around my area start collecting them
- Dark Eldar, what I been told so far & there evil.
When ever the codex is out
I am not a big WFB fan but I would not mind getting a few WFB armies on the go
- Warriors of chaos, as said need these to be finish as soon as possible
Need this army finish by the 4th of April
- Undead, I had this army back when I work for GW since we needed a army fully painted for each core game. With the spray gun release... well :D Also mean it good buying the boxies of Skellies since I can use the some of the Skull for trophies in my IW yet have models for my Undead army to rise :D Everone wins
Aim to finish the army one spare week when I have nothing big on the go... in fact might spray some tomorrow :D But there ready for painting
- Empire, with the release of the Plastic Steam Tank... I want to try a double Steam Tank Army out.
Will not be until summer time
- Dark Elf, quite like the new models from the Cold Once to the Corsier. Also seeing a few great painted Dark Elfs given me idea.
Might be after the UKGT/around Nov time
- Bret's. What better than a army full of Knights, also it them that go me into the Games Workshop hobby 12 year ago when the box game for WFB was Bret's vs Lizermen. Alway been a big fan of knights
Not sure but be nice to start them, but dout it until next year for my wargaming club tournament.
- Lizermen, hearing of the 7 Stegadon list & as a kid being a fan of Dino.... be cool just to have.
If I get a decent job.
Lord of the Ring
- Urik Hai (sp?) just need a bad army since I got a Men of Gondor force again while work in GW.
Be easy to get a 500pts force on the go & to paint them, Men of Gondor took 8 hours.
Then there still Epic I need to get around.
I just enjoy building new armies, imrpoven my skill on converting, painting & gaming. I collect my 40k armies to 1500pts, then make any changies once I had a few games.
WFB I aim for 2000pts but also 2250pts since that the normal for tournament around here
Lord of the Ring aim for 500pts
Just right now I am fully of energy for the hobby, building & painting armies like some sort of machine :D as my friends put it. Just very good friends & staff incourge (sp) me & me personial trying to find a way to paint armies when i got a busy life.
I notice I been painting & building more since 5th Ed 40k was release with my Iron Warriors, Daemon, Iron Hands than I have done over the year. I think 2006 was bad point for me when I was rushing armies to a standard I did not want because college & other stuff going on.
So many armies but so little money right now :lol:
Zahariel - February 15, 2009 09:08 PM (GMT)
Daemons, to add to my Iron Warriors.
blackcell8 - February 16, 2009 06:16 PM (GMT)
I'm still ploughing ahead with my Orks (got around 1300 points, not including WIP Big Mek's Stompa, pics another time). My Iron Warriors are getting dibs and drabs of extras, I'm thinking about redoing most of the army, the existing stuff is looking dated now.
Otherwise, only a few squads to paint up for the Hammers of Dorn 5th Company. I'm slowly getting through my challange last year of painting up a version of each Chaos special character as best I can (so far Blue Scribes, Skulltaker, The Masque, Typhus and Abaddon are done, well, Abaddon nearly done, next is Lucius methinks...)
Basically for the CSM Characters, I want them all on a 60mm Dreadnought base, it just turns the model into a mini-diorama. Typhus, for example is standing on the edge of what could be a Nurgle-corrupted swamp, with a skeleton locked up in a cage floating in it. Abaddon is walking down a rock, about to finish off a dying Marine (one of those new Space Marine Casualties when their released).

I'd say IG becuase my experiance with them is they can feild very dangerous armies for cheap points. Also if you make the renegade you can create an awesome army fluff for them linking them to IW if you want or since there's a new codex coming out make a side force full of Renegade vehicles like the new Valkyrie. :bionic
[TC] Elite217 - April 23, 2009 01:48 AM (GMT)
Well ive had my sorceror and a squad of marines for a while now but i was thinking of fluff and how i would paint them but finally glorius perturabo called to me and even now the mighty 501st grand company rises from the ashes of the great heresy ready to wage war on the forces of the corpse god!
i need to go see a counsellor im always going off like this, i just hope i don't become berzerker!
Insane Psychopath - April 29, 2009 10:08 PM (GMT)
Well 2009 (early) been busy so far
Iron Hands - Finish by 8th Feb, now on display in GW Falkirk
Death Wing - On hold/got boring
Legion of the Damned - Painted in a day, was orignaly ment for Conflict Scotland, but change to Wolves
Space Wolves - Started last month, finish last week.
With the release of the new Imperial Guard army soon, I'm very very temp (in fact I am) to collect a Chaos Guard army. Just somthing a little diffrent & would not be me if it where not chaos :D
So got a lot idea. Aim for Nov a tournament in Edinbrugh to use them. But it not the rag tag sort of chaos guards a lot people see to lable them as, it more like Blood Pack of highly train real trooper, fought endless campign slaughter foe, fought in a chaos temp where they where tainted by chaos & turn there weapon upon there brother in arm.
So far army got 7 tanks, 55 models :D
Barrakus - April 30, 2009 12:57 AM (GMT)
I'm not starting anything new, but I will probobly be adding some nice shiney new bits to my renegade guard.
