Over the last year and a half I've been slowly working on a 2nd edition scheme with my cunning opponent.
As much as I enjoyed painting and playing my Imperial Knight, and my flyer, as 7th Ed evolves and rumours of 8th Ed float around I find myself more and more drawn to the 40k of the mid 90's.
Barely knowing anything about the rules, I'm wanting an army like the old school battle reports in the White Dwarfs I used to read in high school - so Gazkhull, a couple mobs of boys, a shokk attack gun, a small cult of speed element, and individual units of things like kommandos and stormboyz for colour, maybe a dreadnought.
Far less trouble for a 2nd Ed SW army as I had alot of the mini's, although I'm hunting down an iron priest and original Njal. But for an initial 1000 points army I can live without either.
I'm pretty happy with the result (although my freehand pack marking could be cleaner) - whilst the detail is not as good as more modern figs, again its good enough for my needs.
