Oops... So, it seems even when I'm on the other side of the world (I write this from a hotel room in Orlando where I currently am for work) that buying more toys is a bad habit. Those who follow my twitter will know that I found a Forge World tank that I'd completely forgotten about (a Sicaran of all things!) and blog readers will also remember me buying a Fellblade. Well, both have now gone from my possession. I just couldn't justify keeping the Fellblade as I can count how many games of Apocalypse I've played on one hand and the Sicaran would not be in the top three or even four choices for the heavy support slots in my Red Scorpions army. Shame, but those that have been following this blog know that I've been looking for a suitable allied detachment. Well, I've found one. Militarum Tempestus. They seem ideal on a number of fronts:
- Not a different paint scheme of Space Marines.
- Effective against all paint schemes of Space Marines.
- New range of models.
- Small range of models (i.e. it will be hard for me to go overboard and get one of everything as there are really only a few choices).
- They look really good!
- They will make a nice allied detachment for the Red Scorpions if not used separately.
- They're an excuse to make it a themed Inquisitorial force (yes, I'm justifying buying an army so I can buy a single model... That fact isn't lost on me).
