2017 Horus Heresy Army Ambitions: Pretty Boys, Smurfs, and Dickbike Riding Space Monks.



With 2016 finally circling to to toilet I wanted to lay out some of my hobby ambitions for the coming year and reflect on the current year (in terms of HH gaming). My biggest accomplishment in terms of modeling was finally completing all of the named Character Series models I own. I don't really like paiting large squads so it has always been easier for me to work individual pieces. I completed Fulgrum, Guilliman, Eidolon, Alexus Polux, Sigmusund, and Garro! I did not get much gaming in this year due to a very busy work life but I did make it to NOVA in Washington DC for two days. My Emperor's Children got trounced but I had a great time gaming and catching up with friends from previous tournaments. Next year I am hoping to focus on some different projects while finishing off some others. Here are the modeling goals I would like to accomplish and some army lists I have been working on:






1. Finally finish my Emperor's Children Legion Army. Seriously, I have been working off and on of these guys since HH: Betrayal came out. I'll either finish painting them all or sell everything that is not painted. Either way this army gets completed in 2017!




2. Build and Paint my Ultramarines Legion Army. I have finally collected the models and resin bases needed to build this army. It is based around the Pride of the Legion Rite of War. The list I am currently working with is below. I'll also be painting up Guilliman and a squad of Invictarus Suzerains,

3. Finally, I will be starting an all jetbike army. I decided to use the Ravenwing Protocols Rite of War for the Dark Angels Legion because I have always like the Dark Angels but never built a Dark Angels army and I did not want to do a White Scars army because I hate painting white. I am starting small at 1500 points so that I can expand it depending upon what toys the Dark Angels get in their full army list.  Here is the list I will be starting out with:
