The Korean Konnection - 2

Anyong Haseyo!

The mail came in today, and with it came my COBRA Rattler, er I mean, my Valkyrie. A big thank-you to Pete for sending it to me, as well as my SGU t-shirt and some other goodies. Watch for the SGU logo representing in future installments.

Work on the COBRA Guard progresses well. Here is a group shot of my finished models.
(Yes, that is a South Korean flag in the background.)

So far we have the 40K equivalent of the Nightraven, Rattler, Thundermachine, HISS II, HISS III, IMP, Crimson Guard and Destro!

I'm particularly pleased with how the planes have turned out.

My plans to use Death Korps of Kreig as COBRA Vipers has been delayed, for the time being. Meanwhile, I'll convert some more Cadians to the cause. One thing that is really setting me back while in Korea is the lack of options. There is only one store. They only stock the current GW line. If anyone has old or used models, I rarely hear of it. Suffice it to say, it's hard to find meltagun and plasmagun armed guardsmen.

So I guess what I'm saying is, Darren wants OOP guardsmen, especially with melta / plasma for Christmas! (I've already got a line on a platoon of Praetorians... mwahahaha!)

Otherwise, my time abroad passes passably well. Mom sent me some more things from home, including Horus Rising by Dan Abnett. I already read it (ooops Mom!) but what the hey, like I don't have time to read it again!

All the best to the rest of the SGU! Wish I could be there for the Mike Mudd Tournament, but all my best wishes go with you for a great event. Now, to return to my daily affirmations...

"Must not start another 40k army.... (smack!) Must resist High Elves... (smack!) Must not make a second Nob Biker squad... (smack!)"

This could take a while... Cheers!

    How far do you plan to take this army? Maybe some Catachans or Empire or Chaos Marauders could be converted into Dreadnoks for penal legionnaires, or just Buzzer as a priest with eviscerator. Firefly or Storm Shadow would make for good Marbo clones, and the various Zar-folks could make good Calidus assassins.

    Maybe even some BATs or SNAKE armor for Ogryn?
