Each contestant has to choose a Getting Started box set. I've chosen to go for Scions: I like the heavier armour they have over the Imperial Guard, and the Taurox is a fun kit, even if it has it's fair share of haters.
As you know I can't leave anything stock. On top of the challenge itself, I'm adding an extra degree of difficulty, ensuring I convert every single model, including the Taurox.
The theme I plan to go for is 'Mad Max 40k'. It's an idea that's been bubbling away for a while now, but I have an excuse to make a start on it. I plan to have the scions look somewhat like the wastelanders of the outback-based movie franchise. We are allowed to raid bits boxes, so I plan to utilise a few choice bits. The main parts I'll be using are:
- Helmets from the Dark Eldar Scourges and Sisters of Silence
- Weapon arms from the Genestealer Cultists box sets.
- Couple of Chaos Icons
