As I’m not particularly good at making some decisions for myself (kid in a candy store syndrome), I’ve decided to ask for the assistance of you, the reader – what should I paint next?
I’m going to make a FW investment and there are so many things on there that I’d like to try, but now that I have imposed certain restrictions on myself and what I produce this year, I’ve narrowed the list down a lot. Problem is, I now have a choice to make and my indecisiveness is getting the better of me. Here’s the poll – further info below.
Here’s a breakdown of the options…
Option 1 – Mortifactors Mortis Pattern Contemptor Dreadnought
If you’re going to build a Contemptor, you may as well build one with as many weapons as possible. We’re talking two Kheres Pattern Assault Cannons and, as a rather high-octane cherry (literally) on the top, a Cyclone Missile Launcher. This is a chunky investment but it’s the sort of mini you can have real fun with and if I get it right, it’ll be show-piece material. Thinking of using the Death Guard chasis and making some small adjustments to make it a Mortifactors piece so there’ll be subtle conversions abound…
Option 2 – Emperor’s Children Sonic Decimator Engine
With the great reception my Knight received, I thought it would be fun to amplify another big walker. I always wanted to have a go at a Decimator because they look super-fierce and you don’t see many of them around. Think more pink, more animal skins and maybe a converted heavy blastmaster just to make him extra ‘Neshi. And with the Knight and my Sonic Dread, I’d have the makings of a stomping, hulking detachment of psycho-delic noise monsters – maybe call the detachment ‘Monsters of Rock’?. Now that’s a fun project!
Option 3 – Nurgle Daemon Prince
This is kind of a cheat because I already own him – no additional investment required. He’s currently living in a carry case and is probably wondering WTF I’m doing not painting him. I just need to man up and get him done. For some reasons I’m feeling pretty intimidated by Mamon so I need a little encouragement to get cracking on him – but can I do him justice? I said earlier in the year that I really wanted to work on him, and I’ve already built and painted his accompanying Herald, so it’s only right I complete him soon. But should he be next…?
There you have it! You decide. I’m going to be working on the Thunderfire Cannon this week, so we’ve got until friday to make a decision. I shall leave it in your capable voting hands and give you an update then. Onwards?
