Assault On Black Reach Goodness

Good Monday morning!!!

So, it's Monday morning. I went through everything that came in the Assault On Black Reach box last night and I've been working out what I have points wise.

Here's a rundown of the Ork Army list that includes all of the AOBR models...

- Warboss w/ Power Klaw, Attack Squig, 'Eavy Armour
105 points

- Boyz Squad #1 -
8 Boyz w/ Slugga, Choppa
1 Boy w/ Big Shoota
1 Nob w/ Boss Pole
80 points

- Boyz Squad #1 -
8 Boyz w/ Slugga, Choppa
1 Boy w/ Big Shoota
1 Nob w/ Boss Pole
80 points

Nobz Squad - 5 Nobz w/ Slugga, Choppa
100 points

Deff Koptas Squad - 3 Koptas w/ Twin Linked Rokkit Launchers
135 points

So, All of this equals exactly 500 points. The only exception is that I need a Squig Attack model for my Warboss. Not a bad list and it is a legal list. I'll need to bulk out some of the squads and decide what I'm going to do with the Nob squad. The models are actually an extremely good start to an Ork army.

Now on to the Space Marine list...

Space Marine Captain w/ Power Sword, Boltgun, Artificer Armour
130 points

Tactical Squad w/
1 Sergeant w/ Chainsword, Bolt Pistol
1 w/ Missile Launcher
1 w/ Flamer
7 w/ Boltguns
170 points

Dreadnought w/ Multi Melta, Storm Bolter
105 points

Terminator Squad w/
1 Sergeant w/ Storm Bolter, Power Sword
4 w/ Storm Bolter, Power Fist
200 points

This list equals 605 points and with what comes in the box you can't even make a legal game list. Geez...

Rant of the day = Why make a starter box with 2 different armies when one of the armies technically isn't legal to play with.

Okay, so I can see where I need to go with this army and first thing to do is to purchase another troop for this army. Maybe some Scouts. That would be a cheap addition to this list and would make them playable. I could also go through what I already own and see if there's anything usable.

While looking through and organizing my bitz the other day... I came across this little guy. I knew that I would be able to use him with no problem in my Ork Army.

(My Warboss's new Attack Squig!)

As you can see I've basecoated him and Have begun a paint job so that I finally have something on my table that I'm working on. I'm trying out some custom bases for my armies and I'll post some photos of what I'm thinking within the next few days. I'm going to begin assembling the models and adding a few basecoats and I'll add some posts with my progress.
