It’s been a bit since I posted! Mostly because I spent a good little bit just chugging away at Yet More Skitarii, which are neither very motivating nor, after the first batch, very interesting to look at.
But now I’ve jumped on the Knight bandwagon, with some Helverins to add to my AdMech force.
Love ’em! I’ve got a box of Warglaives in the mail as well, which (with the addition of probably a squad of Infiltrators) will bring my AdMech force to a comfortable 1500 points, ready to relax a bit like the Marines are.
So why are the Knights in the same colors as the Dunecrawler? Surely a Knight Household would proudly display their own heraldry!
Holmsian answer: During the evacuation of Gryphonne IV, a small contingent of knights from House <<expunged from Gryphonne IV records>> made it aboard the fleeing Ark Mechanicus. Sadly, it came to light that some of their number felt that the destruction of the forge world relieved them of their obligations to it. A minor mutiny was swiftly quelled, and rather than risk further trouble in a dangerous situation, the survivors were data-tethered and their war machines painted in the forge world’s livery. Desperate times call for desperate measures…
Doylian answer: I wanted to paint more stuff in the Dunecrawler’s scheme.
