A change this big is a perfect chance to try out a new army. I've always gone for Chaos armies, so I've gone for something different; the undead. Vampires, zombies and ghosts are familiar icons to me (being a goth in my spare time), and I've always liked the models. Amazingly, I've found a fair few models to get me started, plus the newest White Dwarf came with a free model, which I quickly found a use for...
...As my Wight King leader. The model is huge, towering over a Space Marine with ease, making it an ideal candidate for conversion into a hero choice. The armour was heavily chipped and scraped using various knives and files, and a large chunk was taken out of the chest. Some ribs were glued in the hole to make the model appear more undead, and not just a Stormcast who sucks at armour maintenance.
As well as the shambolic skeletons I've come across some Chaos Hounds, which make ideal stand-ins for Dire Wolves. I have enough for a squad of five, as the first five were used for my Vraks force.
I'm going to try my first game later this week, but I have an idea of where I want to go with this army. I plan to get some more skeletons, then a special unit, either some Spirit Hosts or Hex Wraiths, and a Wight King banner bearer to buff my skeleton units.
