Well, what a week with regard to Warhammer 40K announcements, eh? With a new edition of 40K imminent, it seems prudent to take a pause on 40K projects and focus on something else fun...Shadow War! I love two things about the new Shadow War: Armageddon game:
- It uses 40K models and factions we already have.
- It uses the same 40K Terrain, and introduces new kits that go REALLY WELL with the existing Cities of Death kits, and all the new stuff like Promethium Relay Pipes, etc.
I built these all from left overs in my bitz box that remain from creating elements of the 262 Siege regiment. Some of it was recast crap I bough by accident off EBay in my frenzy to acquire bitz in the early days. Some of it was authentic Forge World resin. You can see the patchwork of parts in the pic above.
Engineer parts added a shotgun to a Guardsman recruit. Pieces from the Grenadier squad kit provided all the veteran bodies and hotshot lasguns to rep the Hot shot laser pack upgrade in Shadow War. A spare Company Commander provided a great Kill Team leader (Veteran Sergeant). Spare weapon arms fashioned a second Guardsman recruit. Salt with flamers and a Plasmagun and there you go!
