Therefore, I've followed the ancient 40k motto: "If something works, spam it," and painted some more.
I think I've said before that I don't like painting these models, and that's not changed.
Not only do I not like the paint scheme I originally went for (which is my own fault), but I also find the models lack personality. This might be about all the emerging faces, but compared to the other models in the Start Collecting box, I find the details really shallow.
Anyhow, I now have six. It's not exactly game changing, but after three of them deleted a mortar unit, I think six might have a chance of doing something similar to a larger or slightly tougher unit.
Admittedly, this won't fix any of the other failings in my game, especially as both of Pete's armies (Space Wolves and Imperial Guard) got a boost in the rules this week, when Daemons were overlooked entirely.
Ah well...it's only a game, after all.
I've now almost finished the models I have for this army, with just three Screamers, a Changecaster and three Blue Horrors (which I have a plan for) to do.
I have a birthday coming up though, so reinforcements might be incoming.
