The Beginning of a Legion

Well Forge World have really done a good job on the pre-Christmas delivery and I have a rather large box of resin sat next to me at work.  Considering I ordered this last Friday, it’s arrived in less than three working days which is actually faster than I’ve ever received an order previously.  Although I’ve not fully unpacked, the quality seems quite good and I can’t wait until I can start putting them together.

My order consisted of:

  • 30 Marines in Mk2 Legion Power Armour = 250pts + 150pts
  • 5 Cataphratii Terminators (with power fists and a heavy flamer) = 210pts
  • 1 Rapier Laser Destroyer = 40pts
  • Decals

Hmm, when you list it like that it’s quite scary how much this stuff costs…  However this does give me my two mandatory troop choices plus two elite choices and a rather sizeable 650 points worth of Legion.  If I put some of the marines together as a Seeker Squad then this would actually increase my pointage too.

What I intend to do is to place a second similarly large order next year, but I’ll wait until more miniatures and options are about.  I want to be able to pick up a heavy squad (with either Heavy Flamers or Multi-Meltas), a specialist squad with Meltaguns and likely a squad with Flamers, at least one Contemptor and finally a squad of Death Shroud.  I’d also like a unit of three Medusa although these may have to be converted from Basilisks if a Legion variant isn’t released.  I’m also going to need a Legion commander of some kind.  Ok, I may be doing two orders and selling a kidney…
