The full 2nd Company of the Salamanders
That's right, a whole battle company consisting of:
- Command Squad
- x6 Tactical Squads
- x2 Assault Squads (& variations thereof)
- x2 Devastator Squads (& variations thereof)
- x2 Dreadnoughts
- Assorted transports & vehicles
That little list equates to over 100 miniatures and is going to be quite the challenge to keep the motivation up to get to the end of it, but, I have made a start.
So far I've got the bones of the HQ section sorted, the heavy weapon section of one of the devastator squads, 1 1/2 tactical squads and most of my sergeants assembled. I'm going to concentrate on getting those bits painted first otherwise I'll end up swimming in a sea of grey plastic as usual!
For the devastator and assault variations, they're going to be centurions and bikers/landspeeders/storm talons respectively but they aren't so much of a priority to start with. I'm also hoping to get some Forge World goodies in there too (I'm looking at you Bray'arth Ashmantle & Mk IV Ironclad!).
I've already painted my company standard as I thought that'd be a good place to start to get motivated, and here it is below.
And so "Into the Fires of Battle, Unto the Anvil of War!"
