Build pictures of the new.. newness.

I give you the "Ark Angel of the Aporkalypse" - also known as "Astorath the Grim".  What, you want more pictures?

Here it's a size comparison between AA and a Stormboy (aka - Assault Marine).

Three pictures of the Deff Company:

Two pictures of the Proffet of the Aporkalypse (aka a Librarian Dreadnought)

A Painboy (Sanguinary Priest):

And last, but not least - two pictures from the two units of Stormboyz (Assault Marines)

Not pictured is the Kill Blasta (Baal Predator) - cause I haven't finished building it yet.  I'm using a modified Scrap tank from Ramshackle Games - picture of their model can be found here.

At this point it's a 1500 point list, using the BA codex, consisting of Astorath, the Libby Dread in drop pod, a Sang Priest, 8 Death Company (2 power fists, one hand flamer and power weapons), 2 units of 10 Assault Marines (power fist 2 plasma pistols each), and a Baal Predator.  They're going to be painted in "stock BA colors" so there's... less confusion for opponents.

The idea for the army came from a fever induced dream... or maybe from listening to podcasts... one of the two.  Ok, so it was a podcast - the gist of the podcast bit was someone talking about his Ork army, using stormboyz, but not Boss Zagstruck - because although his assaulting from deep strike was cool, because you didn't have any way to control his landing, it didn't usually work for him, and if he had something like the Descent of Angels rule, he's use him more.

I thought, why not use Orks as Blood Angels - everything has to be fast or deepstrike.  Check.  Nothing too specifically BA (no Blood Talons, Blood Lance, etc).  Check.  Libby dread has "Shield of Sanguinius" and "Unleash Rage"... or in Orky terms, a malfunctioning Kustom Force Field and... well, they're Orks.

Have I gone too far?
