The rules are great, sure they could be better but I really feel like they are a nice price point for what they do. 3 Sentinels with 9 S6 Shots out flanking you can be a terrible thing to deal with, and thats at sub 100 points. 150 points gets you the 3 man Suicide Squad, Armoured Sentinels with Plasma Cannons, risky but fun.
Painting them is great. If you ever wanted a test model for just about anything, to see how the colour works on armor. Sents are great for that. Open Topped for people inside, variations of different armour types, pistons and an expossed engine block, several weapons and various lights, antenna etc etc.
All of these make for a good test bed. Up the top, the lead sentinel was the testbed for my Chaos Knight I built when the Knights first came out – who I will show off later in a more Chaos Guard focused list. The pure white one is my Snow theme ideas and the grey is a more urban based. Finally the blood spattered one is Luna’s testbed for painting Horus Heresy World Eaters.
I’ll do a post dedicated to my Chaos Guard and Knight later, but over the jump to see more pictures of the sentinels!
Issue #75 Of the White Dwarf came with a Stormcast Eternal Model, I wanted to convert into a Blood Angel Captain.
Blood Angel’s Captain Kit Bash is the following:
Stormcast Eternal Model from the White Dwarf
Thunderhammer and Storm shield are from the BA Terminator Kit
The helm and jet-pack with wings are from the Sanguinary Guard Kit
BloodLetter Head is from the Grey Knights Terminator sprue (However, The grey knights hand was clearly clipped off)
This model counts as a Blood Angel Captain with Artificer Armour, Thunderhammer, Storm Shield and Jet-Pack
Overall I am fairly happy with my conversion, I’ve been wanting to do a model in the style of gold that I like painting.
I’m definitely going to make a full squad of Sanguinary Guard, Due to it being FUN!!! to paint.
To be honest, I now want to own as many models as possible in BA army Listing
(Currently making a FleshTearers Army but I’ll see what I can do adding these fine beasts into the mix)
"I'm hungry for knowledge. The whole thing is to learn every day, to get brighter and brighter. That's what this world is about. You look at someone like Gandhi, and he glowed. Martin Luther King glowed. Muhammad Ali glows. I think that's from being bright all the time, and trying to be brighter." - Jay Z
