    TFG creates a Chapter

    So, I am making my own chapter, in the literal sense.

    Money spent so far: £107.25

    I will be collecting every single model in the chapter (Barring Thunderhawks and Space ships, although I may collect the spaceships via Battlefleet Gothic)

    This is the full list of Models I will be collecting, as well as their names (only a few are named, and all but one of them after Forumites, I will be adding names as I go along, both forumites names and made up ones.)

    Models with a * after their name I have already bought, those with ** have been assembled, *** have been started for painting, and those with **** are finished.

    To make it a bit easier to read, I have colour coded the different aspects of the chapters as so;

    Headquarters
    Librarius
    Reclusiam
    Armoury
    Apothacarium
    1st Co.
    2nd Co.
    3rd Co.

    4th Co.
    5th Co.
    6th Co.
    7th Co.
    8th Co.
    9th Co.
    10th Co.

    And writing the fluff whenever I have the urge

    I'm doing something very similar but without the models due to a HEAVY focus on fluff down to individual histories. I do not envy you for trying to do all the models, but Best of luck. I'm sure my kids will enjoy watching this project come to fruition...seeing as how I'll be dead

    TFG - you crazy man! And you Arch, but mostly TFG.

    Like the concept, it's ambitious for sure. One thing I would suggest about the paint job is - how well can you halve a helmet. I'd suggest either whole black, or whole red for ease. It'd still look good however (and rather similar to my dudes on bikes ).

    This will be fun to watch develop...

    Just curious, have you totaled up what the points will be for the chapter once it is complete?

    Good point, perhaps my little servitor I made will suffice

    Hmmmmmmm First Captain Tacticus has a nice ring to it :p

    Are you really doing ALL that???

    Good luck dude, and may I suggest just going 1 squad at a time or you will see a pile of plastic/metal and just cry....

    that's what I plan on doing

    Started with a few however.

    Bought a Captain, who is captain of second company and nearly completed.

    Two dreadnoughts, one to be a Librarian Dread, now Completed, One to be a chaplain dread, now started.
    And a command squad, started.

    Oh and sanguinary guard, who are to be used as bits :p

    Going by strict Codex definitions, there are "sub types" of Chaplain which aren't represented in the army list, so maybe a junior Chaplain?

    I'd ask to get something named after me in there but I figure the enemy will immediately go for it on the tabletop... Get it? I made a reference to me being hated... Hahahahaha-Aww...

    I will likely very rarely field this as an army, preffering my space wolves and orks :p

    However, some pictures of The Architect

    Scheme works OK, but I can see areas which need just a little bit more attention to take it to a "finished" result for me. There's mould lines on the arms which don't help, and any directly mechanical areas need to be done. And the base. As a start though, it's a good one.
